My computer all of the sudden will not turn on. I have unplugged and plugged everything back in. I did notice a green blinking light in the back (powerLED), and have never seen this before. Does anyone know what this means? I unplugged my computer to go out of town, and when I came back the power LED was blinking and when I plugged the computer back in, it will not turn on.

CD, since you have checked all of the connections, I believe that you may have a failed power supply unit (PSU). The PSU is the most replaced component in a computer. This is because it provides the power for the entire computer and heats and cools each time you boot and turn it off.

ditto the post from Old Geekster, the flashing green LED on the power supply usually means the power supply has failed, sometimes a failed motherboard will cause the green LED to flash, but failed power supply is the more likely possibility.
