Flickering green light on power supply
\015 I have a HP Pavilion a824n It has an issue like the a420n green light flickering on power supply and nothing coming on.\015
Power units not working,, the light means power problem you will need to replace the power supplie
The same problem with my HP. The Power Supply is bad I tested it with another power supply and it works fine. The power supply is the part with the power plug in the back. Where the green light flickers. It takes 4 screws to unscrew. Do it with the power off/disconnected. The Unplug all your devices and the Mother board plug(s) maybe 2 connections on motherboard. Also if you have black SATA connections you need to buy the right ATX power supply with serial ata for the hard drive. You can also buy a tester from newegg for around 12 dollars.
