On my Compaq Pressario SR5601P - I hit the on/off switch close together accidently. I couldn't get it back on and the back light near the power cord was blinking. I did the hot hair dryer blower back in thru the cooling fan for 1 to 2 minutes then the light goes solid and you can turn it on then. The other morning I found the light blinking again. I didn't know if my house power had flickered and caused the problem. I did the hot hair dryer deal and computer came back on. Last night I know I put the computer to sleep and this morning the back light was blinking again. It came on with hair dryer.
So - do I have a power supply problem or is it something with the Sleep program that's causing problems?
I appreciate your help.
