My computer was on when the power went out and now has a flashing blue power button. We tried removing ram to reset then the battery then dusting it out and lastly removing all components and plugging into a different outlet.

There are 4 constant blinks in a sequence! All of my work files are on there and I don't have them backed up! (I know, I know! ) I have learned my lesson and will promise to back them up immediately if this works again! I just never knew how and never took the time to do it!

I feel your pain. But before we can help you, can you specify the model of the computer? –  DragonLord Jun 13 '11 at 4:59
My clairvoyant powers predict an HP Pavilion or Presario. Do you think we'll receive more response from the questioner here than was received in that case? (-: –  JdeBP Jun 13 '11 at 10:22
