PC won't power on.

I got home from work, went to turn on my PC, and nothing happened. The green light in the front comes on when i have the power button pressed, but thats it. Any help would be appreciated. There are no beeps or anything. Nothing starts up. The green light on the motherboard is on, and solid, but thats it.

Compaq Presario SR2150NX doesn't turn on. Front panel green light turns on but nothing else happens (no fans, no boot, no noise, nothing) Please advice

On the back of the Power Supply there should be a Green LED, When you power it on if it is flashing, this means that the Power Supply is dead and you need to replace it.

Sorry, I summarized the problem in the 'add details' Section

If you are capable of opening the case and reseating your memory and video card, try that first.

Since you are looking inside, try this. Trace the wires that come from the power switch back to the Motherboard. The wires from the switch will connect to two pins on the motherboard. Carefully jump those two pins with a screwdriver and the machine should turn on. I would suggest doing this with all drives and cards unplugged first.

I have seen systems where when they get an unexpected shutdown such as a power failure, then the power supply will not supply full power when you try and start back up. I would suggest that you turn off the power switch to the power supply (if you have one), what a few seconds and power it back on.
