Computer won't come on. light is blinking in back of hard drive.

Try unplugging from wall socket then press on button (this clears out extra electricity in PC). Plug back in then try to turn on again. If PC is older, try blowing out the dust inside tower especially around the CPU fan.

There is a green blinking LED on my motherboard, and my computer is not turning on. What is wrong? Someone told me to ... Hi, i have a dell Optiplex 780 running windows xp, the computer button is just...

If you are referring to the green light on the system tower and is blinking the problem could be the system is in stand by mode.

Turn off the computer by pressing on the power button on the system tower for 10 seconds.

Disconnect the black power cord at the back of the system tower and then again press the power button on the tower for 10 seconds. There would be no activity on the tower when you do this.

Reconnect the power cord and then power on the computer to see if the issue is resolved.

Thanks for using Fixya

My vaio wont turn on and the green light in the back keeps blinki

The green light blinking in the back indicates that the power supply went bad and is not turning on, go ahead and get the power supply replaced. Normally that light is supposed to be fully lit and green.

Green light blinking on back of my system unit but there is no power

I had this problem and i tried everything to make it work. Now all i do is put a hairdryer at the back whilst the computer is plugged in until the light stops flashing then switch on as normal. I also noticed that when the air is warm i do not have to use the hairdryer hopes this helps.

My pc light flashes green

need to know the model # and type of computer? Remove all external devices except mouse, keyboard and monitor. If not getting any power at all, could be your power supply.
