Question about Computers & Internet
If you see a blinking light in the back of your power supply, then its a bad power supply. If you don't see anything, it can be many things. What I've done in the past was unhooked almost everything down to barebones where it's just the power supply and the motherboard connected along with the PC case cables. If you're not use to opening your computer, take it into Geeksquad, they have replacement parts that they can test your computer out with to see what the bad part is.

Unplug it and then aim a hairdryer at the back of the PC (at the fan) for 3 minutes. Works for my HP SR1350NX.
That should get it going. However, you'll probably have to turn off hibernation. In my case, every time it hibernated, I'd get the blinking light. Shut down manually...no problem. Probably need to replace power supply eventually, though I've been rolling with mine as is for 6 or 8 months.
