How come my power light blinks when I try to turn on my computer?

Q: Why won’t my computer turn on? The power light just blinks when I press power. It’s plugged into a working outlet but it won’t boot at all.

    Hi Iwtmo – What kind of computer are we talking about here and how old is it?
    This is a pretty common symptom of a bad power supply especially on Dell machines.
    If you could tell me those two things we can help zero in on your issue.

    Hello! You are exactly right about the power supply. I was able to get it to turn on but every time I touched the power cable it would restart but I was able to recover all my data and save it to another computer. Thank you for your help and I’m all set now. 🙂
