Having problems with your HP Compaq Presario SR1230NX (PJ518AA) PC Desktop ?

Flashing green light next to the power supply -_-

\015 I have a Compaq Desktop, this has happened before and I can't remember how to fix it.We moved my desktop from upstairs today and placed it downstairs in my parents room. I plugged in the power cord and the light next to the power cord was flashing, and with every flash there was a tick/click? Of some kind, I switched the power cord with the one in the Monitor considering they are the same and the same thing happened?Is this bad? Would it cost to repair? Is there anything I can do myself to fix it? HELP!?\015

Answers :

If the clicking sound is coming directly from the power supply, it could mean any number of things, including a faulty power supply.

\015\012If you can open the case cover, check inside for dust buildup. (Note: Make sure the computer is unplugged from the AC power source before doing this!) Try using canned air to blow dust buildup off any heat sinks and fan assemblies you see inside the computer, this includes the power supply as well. A good, general dusting of the backs of drives is also a good idea. Do not tilt or invert the canned air while you are using it, or propellant could be sprayed onto the components!

\015\012After cleaning out the PC, put the cover back on, plug the unit in and see if there's any improvement. If not, without testing individual components it would be difficult to troubleshoot your problem. A trained service technician's physical assessment would be a solid next step.

Won't Start I shutdown my computer and about 8 hours later I attempted to turn it on. The computer will not turn on at all.

Samsung Sync Master 914 has no picture. When power supply is only in, green light flashes slowly. When both power and vga are in, green light flashes more quickly. I hear a faint clicking sound coming from the LCD screen when out of case (located top right corner when screen side is down). Screen flashes faintly (only really noticeable in the corners)and coincides with the flashing of the green light (even with green light being unplugged.) No caps seem to have issues.
