HP Pavilion G6 mobo problems ... won't turn on???

by windows208 / January 26, 2015 6:10 AM PST

So I took apart and cleaned my laptop. I thought it would go smoothly since it had worked last summer. However now I'm stuck in a situation where the power led goes on, but the laptop is completely silent except for spinning the fan every few seconds. I've tried putting in the memory and the hard drive, nothing! I'm pretty sure it's with my motherboard, since it's starting for a split second then shutting down then repeating the process a few seconds later, while the power LED stays on the whole time. Any would be appreciated here

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
