Most likely your Power Supply needs to be replaced especially if this is a DESKTOP computer and you see that light blinking. Before I can show you what to buy to replace it with and give you the manuals, I must know what type of system you have.

 

Otherwise, contact HP and they can sell you a replacement part unless your under warranty then its free.

BEST OF LUCK!
GOD BLESS!

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
