Question about HP Media Center m1180n PC Desktop
Computor will not come on. green led light in back is flashing
This sounds like either your motherboard or power supply is shot, if it is still under warranty you can get HP to send you a new power supply or send your PC back to them and they should fix it for you.
You can check your warranty status online on HP's website here.
Hope this helps.

This mainly happens due to power outages or surges in electricity current, but sometimes for no reason.
With the rear of the computer facing you, remove the power cord. Now remove the right hand side panel to expose the motherboard and make sure you have a strong light so you can see what you are doing.
Now look at the power supply, it will be above the motherboard with lots of wires coming from it. Follow the wires until you come to a large white 24 pin block connector that is plugged in to the motherboard and unplug the connector.
Follow the wire again for a white 4 pin connector that will near the CPU fan on the motherboard (the wires if they exposed will black and yellow) and unplug that, then press the on/off button to drain any residual power.
Please note some of these connectors can be yellow in colour.
All you have to do now is plug the connectors back into motherboard, return the power cord and turn the machine on.
If it boots up the let it boot into Windows and then shut it down and replace the side panel.
If it boots but doesn't recognize any devices, perform a forced shut down by holding in the on/off button until it shuts of and the just turn it on again.
I hope this helps but if you need anymore advice please post back.

SecureEasySetup (Orange/White) The Cisco logo is the Router's SecureEasySetup button. It
lights up and will stay orange when the Router is powered on. The color orange indicates that
the Router is not using the SecureEasySetup feature, while the color white indicates that the
Router is using the SecureEasySetup feature. When the Router enters SecureEasySetup
mode, the Cisco logo will turn white and start flashing. After the Router has generated
the SSID and WPA Personal key, the Cisco logo will stop flashing and stay white.
To clear the SSID and WPA Personal key, press and hold down the Cisco logo for five seconds.
The Cisco logo will flash slowly as the Router resets itself. The Cisco logo will turn orange to
indicate a successful reset.NOTE: SecureEasySetup is a feature that makes
it easy to set up your wireless network. If you have SecureEasySetup devices, run the Router's
Setup Wizard CD-ROM and follow the onscreen instructions to use SecureEasySetup.
Power (Green) The Power LED lights up and will stay on while the Router is powered
on. When the Router goes through its selfdiagnostic mode during every boot-up, this
LED will flash. When the diagnostic is complete, the LED will be solidly lit.
DMZ (Green) The DMZ LED indicates when the DMZ function is being used. This LED will
remain lit as long as DMZ is enabled. WLAN (Green) The WLAN LED lights up when
the wireless feature is enabled. If the LED is flashing, the Router is actively sending or
receiving data over the network. 1, 2, 3, 4 (Green) These numbered LEDs, corresponding with the numbered ports on the Router's back panel, serve two purposes. If the LED is continuously lit, the Router is successfully connected to a device through that port. A flashing LED indicates network activity over that port.
Internet (Green) The Internet LED lights up when there is a connection made through the
Internet port. A flashing LED indicates network activity over the Internet port.
