3Year old HP Pavilion p6130y Desktop,Vista Home Premium, 8GB RAM. I replaced failed hard drive and ordered the recovery discs from HP. While installing the OS it's a lengthy process and when I came back the computer had shut off. I tried this about three times same result. Now The computer won't even turn on. The power button flashes for a second and the fans turn but it goes off immediately. I thought for sure it was the power supply, replaced it and same thing happens. Tried researching it through the forums. Connections look ok, Nothing USB Connected, capacitors look fine. Looks like it went to sleep and won't wake up. Getting a bit frustrated because I can't afford Geek Squad extortion.
