Will not pwer up. Greenlight blinking on back

Our Compaq desktop does nothing when the pwer button is pushed. There is a green light blinking on the back where the power cord comes in and all other accessories on the same power strip power up.

The green blinking light can mean there is a problem with the power supply.

Try unplugging the computer from the wall, and turning on the pc on switch.

After a few minutes, try plugging it back in.

If that does not start things up, you may have a bad power supply.

If the power supply is bad, these models take standard power supplies. You should get an ATX 350Watt or higher power supply.

They are easy to replace, unplug the power from the wall, disconnect all the cables inside the computer. Unscrew the four phillips screws outside the back of the computer where the power supply is attached to the case.

Remove and replace.

If you don't feel comfortable with this, a good local computer shop can help you out.

Hp desktop blinking green light won't come on


mine does that when it's in stand-by mode. I just push the power button and it comes on....

Assuming you've already tried that....push and hold the power-button down for 5 seconds and the power SHOULD go out. *IF* it does not, then disconnect the power cord in the back for 1min....then reconnect and try to boot. If it *DOES*, then do the same...unplug the power cord for 1min and reconnect and boot.

Compaq Presario sr1550nx wont power up. Green light on power supply is blinking. What is that telling me?


Basically, I think that your power supply has gone bad if nothing at all happens when you turn it on.
To test this, disconnect the hard drive, the CD, and any other peripheral and try to start it.
All this assumes that when you push the on/off button, all you hear is yourself breathing--nothing at all from the computer.

Hi, when i plug in the power cord from the wall to the desktop the power button does not turn it on but the little green light in the back of the unit is blinking? how to fix this?


Hi, the green light I believe is just your networking socket. The fact nothing happens when you try turning on your PC could be serious. You will to take your PC in for repair, as this is not something I can diagnose without seeing the PC. Sorry this is not a straight forward answere.

Either the new power supply you purchased is not functioning correctly. But, assuming it is now that you are getting some form of power to your PC, it is very likely the motherboard. Whatever fried your old power supply (or it could have just been the power supply itself) most likely fried your motherboard in the process. Probably not the CPU since the MB can't even post.
