Question about Sony VAIO VGC-RB42G PC Desktop
I moved my computer to a new spot, and when I did I vacuumed off all the dust off the side of it. When I plugged it in it will not power up. The power supply has a green light on it and it blinks, the motherboard has a green light and it blinks as well. It also has a ticking sound, kinda like a watch. I have unplugged the power supply from everything inside and replugged it back in, took the ram out and put it back in, checked the battery and it is good. Any ideas?? It was working fine up until I moved it.
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.

Plug your computer back in and turn it on if the power supply fan isn't working correctly, then that would be your ticking sound and also the computer will not turn all the way on if there is something wrong with any of your fans.
