Computer will not turn on. green light blinking


Try replacing the power supply, a blinking green light usually means the power supply is missing an output voltage. If you do that and you still get a blinking green light then the motherboard will need to be replaced.

Profile 3 won't power up, green light on power brick blinks when connected, green light steady when disconnect from computer. Is the problem in the power brick or the computer itself? Thank you.


You can daignose if the problem is with power brick or computer itself, by connecting any other electorinc device from power brick. See if the green light continue to blink. Further there is a chart given on the power brick, which indicates which lights should be ON for normal state. You can also try replacing the phuse on power brick, if faulty.

Sony VAIO VGC-RB42G - No Power; Blinking green light on power


Try a different known working power supply on that computer, the green light on the power supply should be constant and not blinking. The green light on the motherboard shouldn't be blinking either but if its not getting the right voltage from the motherboard then it will blink as well.

Get a different power supply and see what happens. At that point the power supply green light should be constant, if its not then your motherboard is faulty at that point, if yout the green light is blinking on your motherboard, if both are constant then reseat the memory and CPU and only have the power supply hooked up to the motherboard and not to anything else.

If you still can't get video then at that point you know the motherboard is definitely bad.

Computer wont start up. Blinking green light in the back of tower


I've had that happen twice to my Vaio desktop and there was a very easy fix. I'm not a techie, but I found a recommended solution online when this first happened six months ago. I couldn't find the solution again, but I fortunately remembered the steps.

Remove the side pane to access your motherboard cables, etc. Locate the connector on your motherboard that contains the wires going from your power supply to your motherboard. It will be a large, rectangular connector with a lot of individual wires It is not a ribbon cable but should be located next to a ribbon cable connector andnext to a geen blnking light on your motherboard (when the power supply is plugged into the wall). Note: This green blinking light is in addition to the green blinking light on the back of the PC.

This next step is important: You have to disconnect the connector noted above from the motherboard WHILE the power suply is plugged into the wall. Wait a few seconds and plug it back in. The blinking reen light on the motherboard should now be a solid green light. The PC should now power up.

It worked twice for me; I hope it works for you.

My gateway is not turning on!?


The most likely possibility is you need to replace the power supply. If you have a power supply tester you can check it. If not you may want to borrow or purchase a new one. They, for the most part, are not that expensive. I hope this helps. Joe

No power, power supply & motherboard green light blinking


I had the same exact problem for the same exact reason. Plug the power cable into the back. Open up the side of the case and unplug all the wires that the power supply plugs into. The motherboard, harddrive, cd & dvd drives, everything. wait about 10 minutes and plug them back in, plugging the BIG cable that connects to the motherboard back in LAST. This will make the light go from blinking to solid. I think it is a safety? to protect the motherboard from damage.
