Question about the flashing green light on hp pc

I have a question for you regarding the flashing green light problem. I recently just had the same problem and followed the hp troublshooting guide and concluded that everything works except for the main power cord to the motherboard. I was wondering if this was the same for you seeing as how a new power supply fixed your problem. Im trying to decided whether it would be better to buy a new power supply and replace it or have the computer serviced. If you can get back to me that'd be great, thanks

Your best bet is to get a new power supply put in because then your not wasting a lot of money on getting the computer serviced every time it happens. So what I think you should do is get a new power supply because it's not only the cheapest route but also the best route to go right now. If the CPU board continues malfunctioning after you install the new power supply then that right there is showing that you need a new CPU board.

Green power supply light is flashing so power is getting to the computer, however the computer will not start from start button. Have removed case and tried ***** start button. Didn't work. Comput


Power getting to the computer/Power Supply?
Yeah.

Power Supply good? -> NO

A) IF ALL of the LED lights were on at once, they would use less than 1 Watt of power.

B) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts of power.

C) A typical Processor can use from 51 to 125 Watts of power.
Just depends on what Processor it is.

Your Power Supply doesn't even have enough power to spin fans, much less start the Processor.

HP Pavilion a1020n will not power on.


The green LED light at the back of the Power Supply, is now a diagnostic LED light.

Tells you the Power Supply is bad.

HP Support > Pavilion a1020n Desktop PC > Main Support page,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?product=459880&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&cc=us

(No Thanks) > Power management,

Scroll down. Click on the + sign to the left of the blue -
Power supply light is on or flashes

(When the PC worked the green light stayed on constantly. You are correct)

Now,...
1) Is the computer dirty inside? Need to know how to properly clean it?
2) Would you like to know the easy test, to see if the problem may be a $5 ATX power on switch, or the Power Supply?

3) I also suggest you remove all ram memory modules, ('Stick'), and clean their gold plated contact pins, with an eraser.
There is a proper procedure for this.

Post in a Comment if you wish to know.

Try swapping out the ram 1 at a time, making sure there is one memory piece there while testing. If no! check hard drive for activity.
