Question about Compaq Computers & Internet
Desh top shut itself down overnight to reboot and download. The power will not come back on. A green light in the back is flashing consistently green. Compaq Presario SR1318NX
This sounds like it might be a power supply problem. If you are tech savvy enough you can do this. 1st try unplugging it, let all the lights go out and then plug it back in. Try to turn it on. It might work. If not, unplug the pc and hit the power button to discharge all voltages. Open the side panel and watch where all the cables go. Label if needed. Unplug all cables carefully. The ones on the motherboard have a clasp that holds them. You simply sqweeze the clasp and it should pull free. After all cords are removed, remove the screws from that hold the power supply itself in. These are usually on the back. Pull the power supply out carefully. Take the unit to your local computer store. They should have a tester to test a make sure that it works ok. Replace if necessary. If it is not the power supply you might try only plugging in the motherboard and HDD. Remove and boards using a static strap between you and a grounded (plain metal) on the case. after that, plug the unit in and see if it powers up. If it doesn't, it could be the motherboard or a video board you needed to keep plugged in.
