Usually a power light blinking indicates a problem. The blinking is coded to indicate what the problem is. Try consulting the manufacturers website and look up the manual for your model. A dell particularly has coded blinking lights. Without know the make and model it is difficult to judge.

Power supply in HP slimline s7310n


It sounds like the CPU is over heating. It probably has poor ventilation. Unplug the unit and open the side panel. Carefully vacuum all the dust inside. Be careful not to damage any electronics. You can use a small brush to loosen the dust before vacuuming. Good luck!

My at&t Motorola 3360 has every light blinking but is still working. The Power and DSL are continuously blinking red and the ethernet, internet and activity are all blinking green.


Hi,

Here's the thing...if the modem is unplugged, and you press the "Reset" button, or any button, nothing will happen because the modem is UNPLUGGED.

When you plug it in again, there is usually a few minutes or so during which time the lights will blink. Eventually, when the DSL connection is established, the blinking should decrease. But, there will always be some blinking going on to indicate that data is being transmitted.

If the "Ethernet" light is blinking, then a computer that is plugged into the router is transmitting/receiving data. If the "Wireless" light is blinking, then a computer that using a wireless connection to the router is transmitting/receiving data.

If a red light blinks, then that usually means the DSL connection has been broken. When that happens, for whatever reason, the modem will automatically begin its initialization routine and will continue to do so until connection has been established. During that time, LEAVE IT ALONE.

If you uplug the device, or if you press ANY button while the device is attempting to correct itself, you can cause permanent damage.

So, you are correct. It's not a problem. I'm sure you've heard the phrase "If it's not broken, then don't fix it." There's a lot of truth to that.

I hope this helps.

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.

Blinking lights


I left if off and unplugged for a few hours. When I plugged it in it started working again. My recommendation if this happens to you is to just unplug it all and let it stand for at least 4 hours and then plug it back in.

Good Luck
