Having problems with your HP Media Center Photosmart PC (M7160N) PC Desktop ?

Why is the power supply light at the back of my hp pavilion m7160n blinking? it won't power on.


Answers :

You either have an electrical problem with your computer adapter or your internal power supply module is malfunctioning. Solution: look for a small red switch (probably near the power plug and power supply light) and make sure its set to 115. If it already is, i recommend going to an electronics store with a nice return policy and testing a new power adapter (plug). If that doesnt work, return it and buy a computer power supply that matches the specs on your current power supply and install that. (the power supply is a big boxy thing inside your computer where your power cord enters the machine). Hope that works out!
That usually means the power supply is bad or busted.
