My home pc was apparantly hit last night by the storm. When I try powering it on it doesn't. When I hold the power button in, the battery indicator light and the power button lights blink. Any clue as to the diagnosis?
Tbis is weird. I have the same exact PC, and mine also was hit by the rainstorm and won't boot up. Strange...hope you find a solution.
When I unplugged everything and plugged it back in, as soon as I put the power cable back into the PC it starts without me even hitting the power button. The LED light no longer even flicks for me....Hope you find a solution.

Open the case. undo all the cables from the PSU to the other bits inside. Then remove the 4 bolts on the PSU. Remove it. Then do the reverse. Make sure the power is off and disconnected before you start.
You need to hit the power button just the once to bring it back out of hibernation mode. It may take around 30 seconds until you hear your computer starting to boot back up and a little longer for the screen to come on.
Failing this, you can try a hard reboot by holding down the power button until you hear your computer re-boot. Usually you need to hold around 10 seconds. However using this last method as a final resort will result in your computer telling you that it did not shut down properly.
Hi! Try to check if there is any power light or any lights on the machine whenever you try to turn it on, also, try to directly connect the power cable directly to the wall outlet.If you have a spare power cable try to use it.If you are getting the same result, try to unplug the power cable at the back of the computer, press and hold the power button for 10 secs and after that plug the power cable back in and then try to press the power button.Check for indicators if the system is getting power for example, check lights, check if the fan is spinning at the back, check if the dvd/cd drive will open or check if the tower is emitting any sound.If still the same and still no light coming from the tower then it might be a issue with either the power supply or the motherboard, you can call your manufacturer and have the machine serviced if its still under warranty.Hope this helps...
Here are a couple of links that may help you to diagnose the problem...it could be your power supply is partially failing, but that's just a stab in the dark. See here and here and here Good luck! I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

First thing to do is try to plug the pc in another wall socket to see if it goes on, If not, the MB could have gotten fried, even though the other plugs seem to work. Hopfully you just need another surge protector as that could have gotten damaged.
