Light Bulb Icon Flashing

I had a power surge the other night and I cannot get my PC to turn back on. The only thing alive is the flashing green "light bulb" icon that is to the left of the power button on the front panel. Any suggestions?

Re: Light Bulb Icon Flashing

Unplug it from power.Pull the side cover to check for burnt smell or burnt spots on your board modem or power supply. Unplug the power suppy from the board, unplug the hard drive . Then plug it all up again , put the cover back on it .Plug power cords back up and try it again.If you get no where after this the surge knocked out your power supply or hard drive or board. Always use a good surge protector on all computers and printer and copiers.

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.

Green light flashing on the back of the cpu

Your power supply just died. If you don't have a surge protector, the power outage probably sent too much voltage to your computer. A power supply is relatively easy to install, but you do have to have some knowledge to do so.
Try looking at this:
If you don't understand it, you should be able to get someone to replace it for you for relatively cheap. Also, you can get a new power supply for about $20 on E-bay.
Also, make sure your computer-- and all major appliances-- have a surge protector on them, because this kind of stuff happens ALL THE TIME.

Son turned off and now will not turn on

is there any error messages at all on ur monitor or u cant see anything on ur monitor

try taking the main socket out and putting it back in wht i mean is tht if u have a power surge then close it and start it agian
2nd solution
try reconnecting the monitor cord to the pc again and see if it does anything
or attach anothr monitor to it to see if the moniotr was the problem

since you can see the green light on the cpu, we possibly know that its not the power supply
so let meknow if u cant see anything or if theres any eror messages at all and leave ti alone for an hour with the power surge turned off and come back to it later and see if it works

on the worse scenario u might have to replace ur video card

Desktop won't start after Hurrican IKE power outage

the only thing i can think of is the power supply got fried that is the most common problem when it comes to the pc not powering on. Now hopefully that is all that it fried and not the motherboard my suggestion is to take to local pc repair shop and have them change your power supply or you could put it in if you familiar with how the machine is wired.

Power doesn't turn on

NO! Do not buy a new motherboard or pc without checking some things.

First, is the green light you say is blinking on the Power Supply itself?

If it is, then the power supply is dead. A blinking light on a PSU means that it can no longer hold a charge and needs to be replaced. Get a new one and pop it in.
