Pavilion blinking power button

I have the dreded blinking power button. It's a pavilion a610y. There's discussion in astronomical proportion when googled but I did not find a comprehensive diagnostic path anywhere. I have disconnected everything. The only thing plugged in is AC. I've recycled that a few times and done the hold the button numerous times. No change, got any ideas?You folks don't get paid enough to listen to this dribble.Thanks...Scott

Sounds like your power supply is dead. You should contact HP and order a replacment.

When starting computer it surges on and off, If I keep turning it on and off it will eventually start up and run.

You've got some bad capacitors in the power supply.
Power supplies for PCs are cheap. Just replace it.
It would cost almost as much for the parts and shipping as it will to buy a power supply.
Take the old one with you into the shop you purchase the new one at to ensure your new power supply has all the right connectors on it, and that it has enough connectors.
If you are completely unsure how to replace the power supply, have the computer shop do it. Most places will charge a very nominal fee for this ($10 to $25).
The power supply itself shouldn't cost more than about $35.

It is referring to the USB ports on the back of your computer near where your keyboard plugs in. The front ones must be USB 1.1 which will cause this error.

HP PAVILION A 1520N pc DESK TOP does not turn on when power button pressed. has power to end of cord. Power button does not light up. little green light on back by power source blinking green

Bad Power supply. Look on the side of your current power supply and find the wattage rating, and buy one of the same rating or higher. Some place like newegg.

Te power button blinks when i turn it on, monitor says no signal

you can test if your monitor is the problem by simply replacing monitor for known good or installing the suspicious monitor to a known good tower. replace monitor if found to be the problem.

now, first make sure you have the data cable gong from your monitor to your video adapter (on your pc) properly attached.

if data cable is properly attached...

that means that your video card has likely failed to the point of no being transmitting any data signals to monitor, ergo the message that you get.

replace the video card for known good video card, price is about 20 - 150 dollars.
