    Today I went to start my desktop PC and nothing happened. I looked at the back of the machine and the little PSU power light was blinking. I know for a fact it usually stays solid when the PC is in perfect working order. I unplugged it, took the case off and checked for any loose cables, switched power cords, switched power outlets...nothing. The same blinking light. I also made sure the switch was set for North American power (115V) just in case it was switched somehow and it was set correctly. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    PC Power and Cooling sells a power supply tester for about $10.

    Flashmonkey, do you have any friends that might have a compatable and is known to work PSU that you could try? That is faster way then waiting for a tester.
