Hi darren1970

 

The only components left to check are:

 

1.  External Power Supply

 

2. Graphics ( can't find the PC, integrated graphics failure equals a bad motherboard)

 

3. Motherboard or corrupted  BIOS.

 

Have you tried a boot with no RAM installed to see if the system will produce an error code? 

 

Have you tried pulling the motherbaod battery to see if CMOS will reset?

Hi darren

 

You have done all that can be done.

 

Nice work.

 

No point in replacing the motherboard.

Hi darren

 

If you are out of warranty HP will charge you to fix. HP would probably replace the motherboard.

 

You have replaced every component you could with no luck.

 

Take the PC to a local tech for a post-mortem diagnosis. It may be less expensive.
