Power Supply on older model HP

Blinking green light on power supply - Thanks for your the post Tami80 - The hiar dryer trick worked brilliantly......as others have attested, I was a little skeptical at first, but trust me, it works like a charm. Will be backing everything up that was on the PC as I'm sure it's WAY overdue to replay the whole unit. Many many thanks for the quirky tip that saved this surveyors bacon...!!!!

Flashing green light on power supply usually means that the power supply is fried or there is a short in the motherboard.

First thing to try:
1. With the power cord still connected to the power supply, unplug the 24pin connector to the motherboard and then replug it in to see if the short goes away.

Test the power supply:
2. If you have a volt meter, you can perform the following test on it: http://pcsupport.about.com/od/toolsofthetrade/ht/power-supply-test-multimeter.htm

3. If not, the easiest way to test everything is to purchase a power supply from Compusa or Best buy that has the same watts or more. Install it on the computer and see if it works.
