Hi guys my computer won't turn on. What happen was i shutdown my computer after using it and after about 30 sec i tried to turn it on cause i forgot something to do with my email and then the problem occurred. When i try to turn it on the power switch on my tower is just blinking and nothing happens. The keyboard lights is also blinking simultaneously with the power switch. I did nothing with my computer before this happen. I didn't even installed anything. I was just using the net. By the way my computer is running winxp sp3. I hope you can help me out.. Thanks!

Could your battery be dead, perhaps?

Before anyone can help you, I recommend that you post your machine specs and include whether this is a laptop or desktop. If it is a laptop there's not much you can do yourself because they are very, very difficult to work on. Having said this I highly recommend your find an authorized service center for a laptop.

 

Just for kicks, try disconnecting  one thing at a time and see if you have any better results. I'd start with the hard drives, then remove memory one DIMM at a time.

 

Observe and try one thing at a time.

 

Let us know what you've got and we can hopefully help you.

 

John

Assuming it's a desktop, it sounds like you need a new power supply

Assuming its a desktop, if you have a switch on the back of the case, try switching it off, wait ~5 seconds, then switch it back. Then try to power on.

 

If it's a laptop, try unplugging and removing the battery, holding down the power button for ~30 seconds, then plugging in the power and power on.

I got a desktop computer. Sorry I didn't posted if it's a laptop or a desktop. I checked the back of my tower but there is no switch. Well I got Intel Core i5 3330, emaxx motherboard ( i forgot which model it was), 4gb memory, invidia gf 210, 500GB seagate HDD, civo 600w power supply. I've found something else too.. When i try to turn it on the keyboard lights simultaneously blinks with the power switch on the tower, and also the fans too. They spin but stops eventually.

Does your power supply have a green light on it, if so, is it blinking?

 

Does your motherboard have a green light on?

 

As Allan, suggested, it may be a bad power supply.

 

With the symptom's your experiencing, this is the first component to test or swap out.
