Question about Computers & Internet
Nothing happends when i press the start button. It seems during the night there was a power shortage (computer was on) and now it won't repsond at all. there is a green light on the lower right corner of the motherboard blinking continously. If i recall correctly that light should be a steady one, not blinking. Hullett Packard 4550, windows 98. I wont start. It seems to start when I press the power button but it doesn't send the signal to the monitor. the monitor is fine. I tried the pc with another monitor and it does the same thing. when I press the power button to turn it off, I have to keep pressing the button for a while until it goes off. Thank you very much.
Sounds like the pc power supply is bad... U can replace it, but if supply went out it may have damaged the motherboard. In future, have monitor blank off automaticlly and install UPS to supply pc. HP has histroy of weak power supplies.

Well as bigbiggs say, there is a PSU problem, or RAMS, but mostly is PSU. You can change RAMS or take one DIMM to see if start up fine, and of course, do a Restore Point on the date the PC work fine.
