Won't turn on blinking red where green power lights should be.
I tried to turn on my cpu and when I did there was red blinking lights where there is normally a green light next to the power button and a beeping noise which continued until I turned off the CPU. I tried rebooting serveral time and different outlets with the same results. Once though, the screen came on with the first blue and white hp screen but it was staticky and not clear and it did not go beyond that screen. What is wrong with my computer?

Check if the signal cable for the display is connected and whether there is any kink that may break a wire inside the cable. If the circuit for display inside the computer is broken, most of the time you would hear beeping when turning on the computer.
Is the computer plugged in to a known good power source with a known good power cord? Also, make sure the power is fully seated on both ends. When you press the power button are you getting any indicator lights? The power button itself has an LED that will be either solid green, blinking green, solid amber, blinking amber, or off. Do you hear any beeps?
Try a different known working power supply on that computer, the green light on the power supply should be constant and not blinking. The green light on the motherboard shouldn't be blinking either but if its not getting the right voltage from the motherboard then it will blink as well.
Get a different power supply and see what happens. At that point the power supply green light should be constant, if its not then your motherboard is faulty at that point, if yout the green light is blinking on your motherboard, if both are constant then reseat the memory and CPU and only have the power supply hooked up to the motherboard and not to anything else.
If you still can't get video then at that point you know the motherboard is definitely bad.
It could be your monitor is fine. It simply goes to a cycle when its turned on and does not detect any signal coming from your CPU, it simply goes on standby mode (hence the darker image and orange/blinking light.) have you checked the computer (CPU) part?
