Have you already tried pulling the AC plug for an hour or two? Power failures may leave some bits and pieces of software kind of laying around and interfering with the boot sequence.
Check to see if the fan is turning (and staying) on when you plug back in and try to power up. If not, then a replacement supply may be due.
I'm pasting a note I just pasted elsewhere about this.

"Since there have been some changes in available outputs and connectors even on ATX supplies, make sure you compare pictures of the supply to your own but in any case, I would recommend using a replacment rated at 350W as this will run more conservatively and not be as stressed as the 250 you now have. It won't cost a lot more and will not consume any more power but the critical components will run cooler.
 
Not as a recommendation, just a current example on eBay:

  The last couple I bought were $5 each with $7 shipping charge from a US source."

I have an hp compaq 6720s and my charge port light blinks rapidly, it wont let me charge my battery and the computer wont turn on when the battery is full any thoughts?


Usually a rapid blinking charge light is alerting you of a battery fault. Try taking the battery out, plugging your computer in, and turning it on (with the battery out). If it boots up, then your battery is to blame, call customer service right away and see about getting a new battery.

Sounds like a defective power supply. Improper power coming from the supply will cause a unit to fail boot. Power supplies are about 40 bucks.

Compaq presario sr1010v power light blinking


Try disconnecting the A/C source.
Allow unit to set for 5 minutes.
Re-install power and restart uint.
If that does not work, Disconnect power and remover supply connections at the motherboard.
Allow to set for afew minutes, and re-connect.
Sometime, removing the connections at the motherboard, allows the supply to reset.
You should have a 4 pin video connection and a 24 pin main board connection.
Note. Make sure your power is disconnected before attempting this service.

Power light blinking


if the power just shuts off for no reason when booted up,it may be the power source is on the way out ,it will work for a while, but keeps crashing, thats the first thing to replace
also make sure you hear the fans working
if it overheats it has a safty shutoff ,
you can also use a house fan, aimed inside the computer while open, to rule out power source

Trouble starting and blinking dash


I had exactly the same problem this morning after returning from the store. I replaced the OEM battery with an Optima Red Top Model 25. Problem gone. Chrysler OEM batteries rarely last more than three years. You don't need to buy an Optima, but they do last a long time.

Good luck....

My pc is not turning on (all the light does is blink orange)


Woops -the blinking amber light of doom is a common fault on dells -
usually a solid amber is the Power supply while a blinking one indicates Motherboard problems. If machine is still under warranty dell will replace it.
If not then it will cost you to have them replaced.
