computer turns on then dies

I have a desktop hp pavilion slimline s5210t .It just quit working.Only the power light  came on.I haven't added anything to it I cleaned the dust out with canned air but it didnt help.I replaced the power supply unit and now I can hear the hard drive turn on but then dies and nothing shows on  the monitor, but the cooling fans work and before they didnt.I was wondering if I should replace the processor?

I would not recommend replacing the processor.  You should only replace the processor if you know what you're doing.

 

If your computer is in warranty, I would contact HP for it to be serviced.

It could be many things. It could the Motherboard, could be a loose LCD connection.
