Hello to you all from a newbie
The power supply on my HP Pavilion has started to flash when I connect the power. Nothing happens when I push the power button on front panel.
If I leave the machine for 5/10 minutes the light stops flashing and I can the power up. Everything then works as normal till next time.
Have checked all leads. If I unplug all external connection it makes no difference.
Is my power supply on the way out?

Pavilion Model number?
The link to the HP Power Supply troubleshooting you were already given is perfect for this issue. Read the part in the webpage about the flashing light. Try to reset it following the instructions before you consider replacing it.

Sorry, should have said I had gone to that site and did all it said with no effect
Just posted here in case anybody had any other suggestions before I bought a new Power Supply
