    Our power went out last night for about 30 minutes and when it came back on, my computer won't turn on. The green light on the back of the power supply is blinking, but I get nothing when I push the power button.

    I turned the electric off to change a wall light and forgot my PC wasn't shut down properly, when I tried to start it up the power lights flash it beeps twice then nothing! Having researched a little it seems the problem may be somthing to do with memory parity error! (whatever that is!) now worried how much it's gonna cost to fix!!!

    I have a pavilion 600, I powered the computer down and moved it to a new location in the house. When I went to plug it back in it would not power up. The fans don't run, but the back light near the power plug blinked green and the front power button blinked blue. PLEASE help me find a solution.

    I had to turn off and unplug the power to my Compaq S0000/8000 in order to solve a router problem. Plugged everything back in but the modem does not power up. A green light is flashing on the back of the modem. All leads and plugs have been checked. Now what? Considering taking the modem to PC World as a last desperate measure.

Monitor won't turn on after a few hours of being shut off

If it EVER works, then the problem is not a failed part, but a weak part. The most likely component type to give you such problems are capacitors. But very few repair techs know how to find such problems, and even fewer have the equipment needed to find the bad one(s) in-circuit. The failure mode is high ESR (ESR means Equivalent Series Resistance). The lower the ESR, the better. Capacitors with high ESR cannot stabilize circuits which demand high pulse currents, such as in switch mode power supplies.

Make sure your cables are all firmly connected. Also check the power strip or surge protector. If all is connected well and the pc will still not turn on it looks like the problem is the power supply unit, which can be replaced for around $20. I hope this works :).

Not booting, blinking light

4 blinks, 1 second apart is a power supply overload. Have the power supply replaced if you haven't added any additional hardware lately. But also make sure your hard drive isn't bad and pulling an overload of power. it's rare, but I have seem that happen on some western digital hard drives.

Compaq presario sr1115cl wont power up

Remove the power supply after everything is unplugged and take it to your nearest electronics store. They should have a tester there. This is probably the problem.
