Question about HP Compaq Presario SR1750NX PC Desktop
A power surge shut down the computer -- now the green light on the back of the CPU is flashing and I cannot restart the computer.
For those who have this problem:
I just had the SAME problem. In fact, prior to my power outage last night, my comp was shutting down after sleep mode on its own.
It is your POWER SOURCE UNIT. I am not a computer guy, and, until today, had never opened up a computer before. After several posts like this hinted at the power source as the culprit, I took the shell off my computer and figured out what the power source was. (it's the little box in the back of your computer that sends power to the different parts. it has a spot where you plug your power cord into. there is also a fan on it.)
I monkeyed around and figured out how to disconnect it from all of the different spots. I went to Best Buy and bought their cheapest one (which has more voltage than the one my computer came with) and took it home. A little elbow grease and the new one was in. My computer turned back on right away.
Hope this helps!
