Having problems with your HP Compaq dc5000 Small Form Factor PC Desktop ?

HP dc5000 won't start. Green light on front is dim and flashing.

\015 At work I have an HP dc5000 desktop pc. After a storm and apparent power failure, the pc won't start. The green light on the front is flashing (it is dim, but is flashing) at a quick pace. \015\012\015\012Nothing is running at all - no internal sounds what so ever - no fans running, no processors running - nothing at all.\015\012\015\012My IT guy is working on a big project so my pc is on the back burner, meanwhile I can't work.\015\012\015\012Any suggestions? Please advise. Thank you.\015
