Computer will not turn on...

[ Edited ]

I unplugged my computer for about a week while I was on vacation, and when I plugged it back in, it would not turn on.  There is a green light that flashes and makes a "clicking" noise.  When I unplug the computer again, the light and clicking slow down, and eventually come to a stop.  As soon as I plug it back in again, the light and "clicking" speed back up.  Any ideas???

Hp Pavilion a6234x will not power on.

I have completed the troubleshooting power supply issues & found that when i unplugg the mother board the light quits blinking & just stays on.

Any ideas on what I do next?
