Well, my sister has an HP computer, and she has been using it for months now, before she had it, it was mine, and I added an extra hdd and memory. Well apparently it has quit working for her, and so I went up to check it, and so I took off the side panel to check it out, and had to blow out all the dust that seems to have collected inside. Upon hitting the power button, the power light comes on, and the fans begin to spin, and then within 1 to 2 seconds after that, the fans stop, yet the computer seems to stay on, while displaying nothing on the computer. Idk what happened to cause this. Could it be a bad processor? Power Supply?

I would check into another power supply, does the cpu fan stop spinning also? This is not a good thing if it does. Do not attempt to run the system without the cpu fan spinning as it can cause it to overheat and damage the processor.

yea, the CPU fan stopped as well, and I immediately turned the computer off after it did that. The thing I'm unsure of is that the processor may already have burnt up. It is an AMD. I will look into a new power supply and see if that fixes it.

Thnks for the help
