    Do you have a spare power source .... have you technical experience to open the case and remove and temporarily install a different power source? If you do ... exchange the power source ..... Yes the green light is coming on ... but that doesn't necessarily mean the power source is working correctly.... a second thought is your VGA out is having an issue ..... if it's an on board or agp graphics system meaning the graphics systems is built into the board.... attempting to utilize a pci, or pci-e graphics card to test to see if this is the issue ..... A final question here, do you see the HDD light flickering even after you have powered up and awaited something to appear on the screen ?
    The answers you provide will assist me in providing you with the proper advice on how to resolve your concerns..


    Kind Regards,

Do you hear fan starting noise? If you dont hear any noise most probably you need new power supply.
you can buy cheap power supply from www.aria.co.uk
if you hear the fan noise!
Does you motherboard starting with POST (a beep noise).
if you dont hear. well you need a new motherboard which should be compatible with your other peripherals.
if you hear a beep noise! Most probably your operating system is corrupted. (Boot file corrupted)
in this case you may have to install new operating system.

Thank you
if you got any problem let me know

1/ do you have an ethenet cable plugged in ? is this light located on this plug ? unplug the cable first
2/ check that the monitor is switching ON
3/ find a power switch at the back of the case and switch off and/or unplug the power cable, for at least 10 sec
4/ switch on/connect power cable, and turn computer ON
5/ if nothing happens, then power supply may be dead ; don't worry it's inexpensive and super-easy to change ! but first check the manual (or manufacturer) for the meaning of the GREEN LIGHT ! Then open the case and CHECK if the computer is perfectly CLEAN, or DIRTY ; especially double check the RAM modules ! Clean everything with air spray and soft brush (pull out processor, ram, cards, if you find lot of dirt)
6/ after cleaning try to turn on computer again ; if fails, go to buy a new cheap power supply that fits your motherboard, or try to find someone that can lend you one for testing

good luck

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!

Blingking light on my motherboard, no power.


Chances are your power supply and computer is fine! From other forums on this problem (which I also had), I've learned the following:
1. If you unplug the computer for a half hour or so (the blinking green light will gradually slow down and quit) and plug it back in, the situation will correct itself and the green light will be steady; however if this does not work,
2. a reset that works for a lot of people with the blinking light problem involves leaving the power supply plugged in and unplugging the power supply connection at the motherboard (it usually also has a blinking green LED) and plugging it back in. To read up on how to do this, Google "blinking green light on computer power supply" and read through some of the forums and you'll come on more specific instructions. Usually, you have to wade through everybody telling you to replace the power supply or your motherboard is fried. It's worth a try for a quick fix, just in case those situations don't apply!

Computer wont start up. Blinking green light in the back of tower


I've had that happen twice to my Vaio desktop and there was a very easy fix. I'm not a techie, but I found a recommended solution online when this first happened six months ago. I couldn't find the solution again, but I fortunately remembered the steps.

Remove the side pane to access your motherboard cables, etc. Locate the connector on your motherboard that contains the wires going from your power supply to your motherboard. It will be a large, rectangular connector with a lot of individual wires It is not a ribbon cable but should be located next to a ribbon cable connector andnext to a geen blnking light on your motherboard (when the power supply is plugged into the wall). Note: This green blinking light is in addition to the green blinking light on the back of the PC.

This next step is important: You have to disconnect the connector noted above from the motherboard WHILE the power suply is plugged into the wall. Wait a few seconds and plug it back in. The blinking reen light on the motherboard should now be a solid green light. The PC should now power up.

It worked twice for me; I hope it works for you.

Camera does not respond when turned on or when plugged in to recharge.


I followed the advice of my Fixya adviser--remove the battery for 3 minutes then plug the USB cable into a different port on my computer and plus in the camera. I did that and turned the camera on as advised but the green light still did not blink. The adviser did not respond when I asked what to do next so I disconnected the camera from the computer and plugged it into the charger. This time the first blue light started blinking (nothing happened when I tried it before following the Fixya advice). I left the camera to charge all night and eventually, after about 12 hours, it did.
Seems O.K. now.
