Question about Computers & Internet
When I turn on my computer, the power button does not turn on and the green light in the back turns off. I've unplugged and plugged back in the power cord and nothing happens after I press the power button on and off again. When unplugged I switch the voltage button up and down and plug in again, still nothing happens. Finally I use my hair dryer and aim it at the vent in the power supply. After 90 seconds the computer turns on. The motherboard light blinks, the CPU light blinks, the green light in the back is on and we're good until I turn the computer back on again. Tell me what's happening and what it is I need to do.

It sounds like the CPU is over heating. It probably has poor ventilation. Unplug the unit and open the side panel. Carefully vacuum all the dust inside. Be careful not to damage any electronics. You can use a small brush to loosen the dust before vacuuming. Good luck!

I have seen systems where when they get an unexpected shutdown such as a power failure, then the power supply will not supply full power when you try and start back up. I would suggest that you turn off the power switch to the power supply (if you have one), what a few seconds and power it back on.

Check all wires for loose connections--- if the memory was wrong or something, it would still attempt to boot but stop during the POST and start to beep

Pull the power cord out and press the power button on the PC to drain the power for 10 seconds. Then plug the power cord back in and turn the computer on. If still does not work, then the power supply may be blown out and needs replacement.
