13 year old desktop.
both fans dead, PSU and CPU.
that is total power failure.
and is common with ESD events. (or stick in sleep mode or hibernate mode ( even chip latch up is possible)
to cure any desktop PC,
we do this.
remove the line AC CORD.
LET THE PC sit for say 1/2 hour. (we are discharging CAP.'s now)

if that fails, get new RTC coin cell battery,
yours if original is no good. and if bad, the BIOS goes nuts.
the life span is 7 years on the RTC battery, so you are getting near 2 times that, why use such and old battery in any PC, for sure that old.?????
then with new battery , go in to bios and click set bios defaults.
now the PC will boot to HDD.

MT version.

HP Officejet 6500A Printer - How to fix General Printer Error

Try this fix if your printer gives you an error code that says "General Printer Error"
Good luck! For All HP Officejet 6500 and 6500A printers:

on Feb 05, 2019 | HP Officejet 6500A Plus Wireless...

Have you performed a hard reset on the printer?
1. Turn the printer on, if it is not already on.
2. Wait until the printer is idle and silent before you continue.
3. With the printer turned on, disconnect the power cord from the rear of the printer.
4. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.
5. Wait at least 60 seconds.
6 Plug the power cord back into the wall outlet.
NOTE: HP recommends connecting the printer power cord directly to the wall outlet.
7. Reconnect the power cord to the rear of the printer.
8. Turn on the printer, if it does not automatically turn on.
9. Wait until the printer is idle and silent before you proceed.
Try to print. If the issue persists, it would confirm that the product has experienced an error with the fuser unit,
And requires a repair or replacement.

The news is all bad. The print head has died or has developed enough of an electrical fault that the machine no longer recognizes it. The machine may be saved by replacing the print head - if you can get one from HP as a service part. You would need to contact the HP help desk to find out if you can get one (have the serial number of your machine on hand) and what it would cost. Then throw the machine away and buy something else.

Check plugs for proper gap, or gap 0.005" less and see if symptoms change <?>.

The only other suggestion I have is connect a piece of transparent fuel line to the carburetor drain port and loop it up along side of carburetor to some convenient point higher than the carb. This will give you a live visual of the fuel level inside the carburetor. Fuel level should be near top of fuel bowl while engine is running. Level will change when engine is shut off (don't care).

first off why in the world post a PC lacking then HP model number of the PC, the books are published free by PC maker, HP, and model. 7years old max. can run Intel Core i7-3770 processor:.
gen 3 processors./

not mobo # the book assumes you didn't lose the cables in the case, must I assume you lost the case and cables or bought the mobo nakedd In a garage sale>??
Lucky for you one guy on ebay sells this mobo missing the PC, and discloses this fact. (HP model)
here is what he said.
HP Compaq Pro 6300 6200 SFF Desktop PC

its and old Compaq relic PC. small form factors is worse of the form factors.
your support page is here, this is all there is....


you said front panel what does yours do?
lost the front panel HP P/N :#636926-001 sure.
why not just buy the panel and end all this pain,?
the cables and pinout are all 100% custom HP cables.
so if you lost the cable, they have no pin out in the books
they do not sell Motherboards NEAT, to put in alien cases.
they only go into HP cases. with HP cables and the cables are keyed so the only go one way.

lost this you did.
fpc-0pf3ovn4boejwup4vsgi0rjv-4-0.jpghP does document pins on my HP workstations, but not this PC.

next time buy a Asus, MSI or Gigabyte motherboard that as all these facts, all do, in fact

so when you learn that number
go to wiki below and see if Vt(x) is a features.
