Power light keeps blinking but won't turn on

Problem
The power button light keeps blinking but the computer won't turn on.

Solution
1. Take a hair dryer
2. Turn the hair dryer on hot
3. Blow hot air into the power supply fan (from outside of the case) until the green light becomes solid

I actually did this and it works. I recommend replacing the power supply though, unless you want to keep using a hair dryer on it :)
