Having problems with your Gateway 507GR PC Desktop ?

I had a power outage and when the power returned my computer was off as expected. I tried to push the on/off button but only get the power light in the button to flash and I hear a sound in the speakers at same frequency as the light flash. The computer will not start regardless of how long I hold the button. Suggesstions?

\015\012this is a easy way to see if the computer is shot - if a new power supple wont work - then you might need a new computer and you can return the power supply .... 40 to 50 bucks for a good power supple vs paying some 50 bucks to tell you the power is shot plus the part = 100 fix and it's easy to put in ... if you can plug up a hair dryer or a coffee pot you can change a power supply

My HP Pavilion dv9005us has two issues which I cannot resolve. The wireless device is not even recognized or detected by the computer, and there seems to be an electrical problem where the lighted buttons at the top flicker on and off from time to time, which may also be linked to an issue where the computer will at times refuse to turn on after I press the on button and watch it all light up in response and immediately shut off. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
