"Not much else to add to make up the required number of characters."

Really? How about make and model of computer, what OS you are running, did you change anything before this happened, do you hear any fans running, do you hear any beep codes, Hardware specifications, what troubleshooting steps have you done so far?

Maybe the computer is in sleep mode and isn't able to wake up.
Therefore, when LED is flashing, press and hold the power button, til the computer shuts off completely.
After that, power on the computer and see what happens.

Hi Imagesphotoshop,

Please provide the details asked by "THX 1138" so that we can help you.

Meanwhile, press and hold the power button for 5-10 seconds to turn off the system. Unplug the power cable and the battery(for laptops). Press and hold power button for 10 seconds. Plugin the power cable and turn on the system.

Let me know if that helps.

Thanks & Regards
