i think the long green light is hard drive activity indicator

Green is PSU, blinking should be a big tattle tale. Red is SUPPOSED to be HD activity.

I have a presario with the same light you are talking about.... It is NOT the HD indicator.. (people should not just guess on forums) There is a small LED light located about an inch and a half UNDER the green Power light, THAT is the HD indicator. Everything I have read says it's most likely a bad power supply unit (PSU). Replace with at least a 300W unit.
