I have an 8200 SFF when I turn it on it seems to do nothing for about 30 seconds. The two green leds at at the front only one of the comes on and that is the power indicator, the other one not at all.
I then can here the power supply fan working and and about a min later the fan goes in to hurricane mode. It still doesn't POST and the screen remains blank. I have disconnected the HDD and the CD Rom, it doesn't have a n extra graphics card. I have connected a PS2 mouse and keyboard to see if the lights flash when booting but they don't.

Sorry for the bad news, but when a desktop does not even power on, you have few if any options for getting it working again on your own.
To determine the cause with hardware failures, you have to be able run diagnostics. We have no way of accessing your PC from here, so we can not do that for you. You have to do it yourself. You do this by pressing the Esc key repeatedly when rebooting and then, when the HP Startup Menu appears, selecting Diagnostics (usually F2) and letting it run.
But if it is NOT possible to run diagnostics, or if that does not work, then there is NOTHING more you can do by yourself -- and there is NOTHING we can do.
You will need to have the PC physically examined in a service facility by folks that can run their own diagnostics to determine what is wrong with it. And the problem with that is, while HP does do repair work of some sorts on PCs still under warranty, they generally do NOT do repair work on PCs out of warranty because they are not a general purpose repair facility. You would have to contact them in advance to see (1) if they are willing to work on it, and (2) if they will provide you any kind of repair cost estimate.
Since you live outside the U.S., here is a link to HP Service Centers, by Country/Region: https://support.hp.com/in-en/service-center
If that link does not get you a useful page, then use the main HP link:
If you can't get assistance from HP, then you will have to seek out a local service facility to have them examine it for you.
