If its by the power button the led just indicates power after u have removed its source and reconnected it........this is normal nothing to worry about.

Hi. My Emachines PC is having major problems. At first it wouldn't start, when you pressed the button on the middle of the computer it would light up, then read no signal, and shut off. When I unplugged it...


try this...
  • Unplug the power cord.
  • Remove the battery and hold the power button for 30 to 60 seconds.
  • Re-connect the power and attempt a boot.
  • Shut down, put the battery back in and you're good to go.

Green light flashing but computer is dead. what to do?


The green light on the motherboard? Your Computer has a few miles on it. It may be the PSU needs replacing. Also replace the CMOS battery and reseat/replace the Memory Mods, if you haven't already. If you unplug and plug in does the computer try to start? Fans spin? LED's blink? Anything? If it starts and shuts down in a few seconds that would, most likely, be a Power Supply issue. Their is a chance, of course, that it's just done.

I have a second-hand compaq sr1303wm and it was unplugged before it was shut down. Now when its plugged in, the green light in the back is blinking but the cpu will not come on.


if it has a power button on the back of the power supply just turn it off and then unplugg it for about 5 mins then plugg it in and turn on the power supply again before you use the computer power button. if this wont work replace the power supply. this could be costly to fix since you could have fried the cpu when it was unplugged but start and the beginning.

MY COMPUTERS front and back green light is flashing green


you can remove your side cover,and unplug everything from your power supply. then if you plug in your computer and the light still flashes it's your power supply. If not it's something that it is powering. Most likely it's your motherboard. I had this happen to me when there was a power surge/ outage and my computer wasn't even on.

Shut down computer and when I went to reboot it it would not turn on. Green light in back is on


Hold Power button in for 10 secs... see if starts... if not, unplug for 5 min and plug back in and try to start. Motherboards can lock up in the BIOS or it could be a power supply. If this solution doesnt work, leave power plug out over night and attempt again. If fails again... it maybe the power supply.

Modem wouldnt turn on after shutting down. unplugged everything then tried it again. wont turn on and there is a flashing green light on back of modem


you have no internet connection?

sounds if you need to configure your modem

for the flashing light on modem is trying to connect to a network

would need your login data from ISP to configure modem, best is to call them and have your modem manual handy an pen and paper to write down info

AL 1916 Monitor Green Light Flashes


I think you have loose cabling somewhere. Try to unplug (and untangle) the video cables and then plug them all back together firmly. If this does not work and you know your machine is booting up properly, you might have damaged the monitor somehow accidentally.
