Re: no power

Kindly check the cable that is put in your PSU or on/off switch. Maybe you accidentally put it off. If you have Multi Tester you can check the PSU (Power Supply Unit) if there is conection in your PSU.

I have a second-hand compaq sr1303wm and it was unplugged before it was shut down. Now when its plugged in, the green light in the back is blinking but the cpu will not come on.

if it has a power button on the back of the power supply just turn it off and then unplugg it for about 5 mins then plugg it in and turn on the power supply again before you use the computer power button. if this wont work replace the power supply. this could be costly to fix since you could have fried the cpu when it was unplugged but start and the beginning.
