My pc was good until a few days ago, its windows was 10 and 64 bit, its RAM is 2*4 G, in the morning of that day when I pushed the power button, there was beeps, yes 9 beeps and repeating pattern, I replaced its CMOS battery , but the battery was not a good one and had voltage of 1.7 V, when I realized that, I measured its old battery and the battery voltage was 2.98 V so I replaced its original battery, the result was LED power on with black screen and no response, I tried many instructions of the troubleshooting manual with no success, could anybody help me out?

See the troubleshooting guide at the link below, Appendix A, page 59 for how to troubleshoot the 9 beep code error...
If those steps didn't work, then it is time for a new PC.
I would not bother replacing the motherboard or processor.

I have already read that instructions and it was too short and discouraging, after all there is no 9 beeps any more, it is power LED on continuously, could you tell me more specific solution rather than buying a new pc, I am retired and I can't afford buying a new one, changing the mother board is a difficult solution, I am sure still there is a way to get over it, this computer is really a piece of jewelry a fantastic piece of work by hp corporation.
