    Opened the computer case and made sure everything was connected, attached and reattached, still nothing. Is it possible that I need a 20 prong power supply box

  • Jaiy24 Apr 15, 2009

    The clicking sound is coming from an enclosed metal box where you plug the cord in to get power, thats also where the little green light is and that is flickering, thats where the little clicking sound is coming from also

    Here's what you can do right now--open the case, have the stuff plugged in, and tell me where the clicking sound is coming from when you turn it on.

    Clicking sounds are not good.
    How good are you at messing with hardware? Can you open the computer case?

Yep--you need a new power supply. Get one that is the same size (they mostly are) and probably 350Watts. That should do it.

Measure it before you go to the store to be sure it's the correct size.
Or, better yet, take the old one with you.

No power when front button is press but on back of unit there is a flashing green light


Unplug the computer and wait for a few seconds. Plug it in again and press the power button. If this doesn't work, you will need to take it to a service agent as it won't be user repairable.

Compac computer won't turn on and the power light blinks constantly what can i do to fix this problem


Does it beep? if it does, whats the beep pattern...ie long long short, or short short short

if nothing else, something is causing a short...check the usb ports (real common) the contacts break from wear and short out, have your power supply tested.

Storm knocked power off late yesterday afternoon....back on this morning. PC won't power up....small green light on back flashing. Modem, router, etc. all back up and running, but PC won't turn...


Hello,
The first thing to try is to cycle the power. To do this, unplug the power cord from the back of the PC and press and hold down the power button on the PC for 5 seconds. This will completely drain any "stuck" power in the components. Now plug the power back into the PC and try booting. If it still does not come back on after this, then you may be dealing with a blown power supply. You can buy replacement power supplies from your local PC shop for about $50 for a 400watt.
To protect your devices in the future, make sure you have a good surge protector and / or a UPS (uninterrupted power supply).
Regards, Chris

My Compaq Presario SR1303wm PP150AA cuts off by itself and a little green light on the back starts blinking


it could be overheading or it could be a power supply going bad. where is this green light, is it adjacent to the power cord, like on the back of the power supply unit, or is it adjacent to all the ports?

if the light is on the power supply then replace your power supply. if the light is adjacent to the ports, then remove the side cover of the case and blow the dust out of the cpu heatsink (the cpu heatsink is pretty big, usually aluminum, fin array, topped with a large fan). do not touch any microchips inside the computer, and discharge any static electricity before acessing the inside by touching an unpainted part of the case right after you have removed the side cover. if the heatsink is not dirty, and all the fans are working and well ventalated, then it is likely the power supply.

I have a second-hand compaq sr1303wm and it was unplugged before it was shut down. Now when its plugged in, the green light in the back is blinking but the cpu will not come on.


if it has a power button on the back of the power supply just turn it off and then unplugg it for about 5 mins then plugg it in and turn on the power supply again before you use the computer power button. if this wont work replace the power supply. this could be costly to fix since you could have fried the cpu when it was unplugged but start and the beginning.

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.
