Having problems with your PC Desktops ?
Green light blinking on back of my system unit but there is no power
\015 I shut off the tower and unplugged it before it shut down.\015\012the monitor says override and the tower won't turn on.\015\012a green light in the back of the system unit flashes but no fans run and no power lights come on in front.\015
I had this problem and i tried everything to make it work. Now all i do is put a hairdryer at the back whilst the computer is plugged in until the light stops flashing then switch on as normal. I also noticed that when the air is warm i do not have to use the hairdryer hopes this helps.
The hairdryer at the back of the cumputer does work. just put the hairdryer at the green light for about 3 minutes it will stay steady then turn your computer on it will work.
