Hmmm, First of all check the fuses if any that may have burned out due to the power outage. If this doesnt help. Open up the power supply and smell it for any burned out parts. If you can smell the scent of burned electrical parts then you should replace the power supply. It should solve your problem. Also check the motherboard for any anomalies.
The blinking light is telling you something about the PSU. First check any AC mains voltage select switches for proper setting. US should be 115. Second if you have a multimeter, you could test the PSU for voltage. Disconnect all power to all components. remove all components from the board including cpu, memory . Leave the PSU only plugged into the board. Press power. If the fan turns on then it's not the power supply. The brand power supply isn't the best, I've seen where you need to wait for 5-20 minutes for the blinking to stop, at which time it will fire up. Now, if it doesn't power up, then it's most likely the PSU.
Most computer testing facilities will test your current power supply for free. A replacement is very inexpensive to replace. Bestbuy, MicroCenter, small computer shops and buy replacement from Amazon.com, newegg.com.. Just make sure you have the correct information for your replacement. The model number on the power supply would be your best bet in most cases. Good luck and have a great day. I buy power supplies as low as $15 dollars Generic
You might try this. Shut down the computer, disconnect power cords, disconnect everything at the back of the computer, mouse, key board, etc. Open the case, ground yourself by touching an unpainted area of the case and remove the power connectors to ALL optic drives and floppy drive if you have one. (Of course do not disconnect the hdd.)
Reconnect mouse, keyboard, etc., and power cords to wall outlet.
See if it will post now. If it does I say you have a faulty power supply.
I was given a computer which was doa. It would not post, after I tried the above routine it posted then booted to windows.
I replaced the psu and now the computer works fine.
Hope this helps!
If the power box is bad, The computer will not come on. if you only get a green light, you would need to start with replaceing the power box, if you get a new one and the same thing happens, then the mother board is bad too.
