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?

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.

    iF YOU HAVE ANOTHER HARD DRIVE unplug your hard drive in your computer then plug in the other known working hard drive and see if your computer then tries to come on. You can do the same with any one of your hardware devices like your memory, your modem your ethernet or sound cards. Any of these can or could of been affected by a power surge. If your computer comes on after you change any one of your devices you will know which device is bad.

The flashing red indicates that either the fileter cover or the lamp cover is not installed correctly. If both are installed properly and secured, the unit will require service.
