I have an HP pavilion M9040N tower that has power (green Light on) but shuts of in 1-2 seconds after turning on the power button( blue light) on top. Tried removing various components with no change...


As you have already troubleshooted a lot ... but i want you to check by replacing power-supply (SMPS) in most of the cases such problem are created by faulty smps. No doubt it's getting on but SMPS can create such problem. So check with that if haven't check for it.
