Desktop will not start

HP Recommended
Pavilion 570-p054

I am having trouble getting my desktop to start up. I did a hard reset a few days ago and it appeared to start up normally, however my monitor was not working so I couldnt see if anything came up. I hooked it up to a different screen today and tried to start it back up and Im having the same issue. Hard rest is not fixing it this time. It tries to start for a second then powers down,nothing shows on the screen.

Hi
First:- Turn off the computer, press and hold the PWR button for 4 seconds.

Then - Leave only keyboard and mouse connected, disconnect all externally connected
devices such as Docking Station, USB storage devices, displays, and printers.
Unplug the AC adapter from the computer.

Next - Press and Hold the Power button for 15 seconds to Hard Reset.
Rinse and Repeat

NOW begin checking/testing/proving the Hardware is fit for purpose.
Power on your PC, press ESC (repeatedly), then F2 at the prompt.
Choose System Tests (Fast Test does a 4 minute hardware check).
AND/OR
HOW DO I USE DIAGNOSTICS?
