    Was anything done to the non working computer recently, like adding a new component? Check all connections and plugs to and in the computer. Do you hear fans spinning when you turn it on?

    nothing was done to the non working computer. no i dont hear any fans but the light blinking thats all. I think the power suppy went dead or something. maybe because of lightning in florida (guessing). but i have a surge protector for that. I also tried to plug it into a wall outlet but nothing works. I'm about to open it up and dissconnect the power supply and reconnect one by one. what else do you think i should do?

    That's it try the power supply...Hopefully the motherboard isn't toast.
