SOURCE: The Dreaded Blinking red light

I think this sounds like a RAM issue.. How much do you have installed currently.. to check click start/control panel/system and it should show in the lower right corner of the window... if it has a number like close to 512mb then you have 512mb sometimes it will not show exactly 512mb because the mainboard may be using a portion of it for onboard video or something else. But if you are running win xp it needs a min of 512 and any other program you have running will dig into the 512mb being used and slow things down and eventually freeze the system. Due to programs running in the background like anti virus, msn, etc... You can add more ram for about $40.00 if you put it in yourself or around $70.00 if a shop adds it for you. That is at what our shop would charge. Otherplaces ??? Hope this helps.. The ram is used to run your programs and also aids in the speed. Most new/good computers come with about 1gb now days.

SOURCE: Hav a pavilion a510n HP

I had a similar problem. Moved a 4-year-old desktop. Got the flashing light and no start. Quick fix is to unplug unit, open up case and unplug the large power connector on the motherboard. (On mine this is marked P1 and has a lock tab on one side that must be held in while unplugging.) Plug the 110-volt power and THEN plug the connector back into the motherboard. Button the case back up and all will be well until the next time you shut the power off to the computer.

The cause of this problem is likely that the battery on the motherboard is nearly dead. The flashing light is a warning to replace the battery. (It would have been nice if they would have put this into the user manual.) When you disconnect the power as described above, you interrupt the low-battery circuit. Replace the battery and all should be well.

SOURCE: will not pwer up. Greenlight blinking on back

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.

SOURCE: Green light flashing on back of unit near power cord also green light flashing on motherboard near power supply plug in.

I would suggest trying to replace the power supply. If that does not fix the issue, i would need to hear more about the computer.

There could be a hardware problem on the computer if the power button led light is "Orange/ or amber", if you can open the computer, try removing one memory card at a time and see if the power button will change.

Change the fuse in the plug failing that it could be the inline fuse inside the machine normally near where you plug the lead in, if youcan get to that it is a matter of changing it, and the Hoop must be detachedwhen powering on! Otherwise it will not start. Hope this will help you. Good Luck.

It maybe the power adaptor is loose on the motherboard. Push the cord in and rotate it and continuously push the power button if it starts that is your problrm. You can temporarily fix it with tape once you discover where the cord wants to be or you can use a clamp.

Screen went black,but still on...turned it off...now won't start up.


All Dell laptops have a similar design flaw (in my opinion). The socket where the power cord plugs in to the laptop is probably loose. Use a toothpick or something to check it. Don't use anything metalic. If the socket moves easily then it has probably come loose from the motherboard. You may want to take the laptop to a computer repair shop to have the power socket soldered back to the motherboard. If you have the knowledge you can do this yourself but I don't suggest it. Laptops have a LOT of small parts. Hope this helps! Thanks!

Won't Start No lights flashing does nothing when I hit the power button


Try taking out battery and plug in power. If it works, battery is faulty.
If not, try taking out your hard disk plug in power, if it works, hard disk is faulty.
Try taking out memory card, if there's a sound, memory card faulty. If no sound, it's your motherboard that is causing the error.

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.
