Question about Motherboards
Power led blinks red continually at intervals of about 1second.Cooling fan spins but stops a few seconds after.
Had same problem however when I removed the CPU the fans would stay on. My problem was a short in the board when the CPU was locked. Try to unlock cpu and see if fans stay on. If so you have the same problem as I did. I returned the board now fans stay on however, I can not get the monitor working.

Try swoping the power supply if you have a spare ,and if you cant do that test your power supply on another pc . its very common for a atx power supply to do that mostly after not booting up for a while . just try the above it should give you direction from there onwards

Sounds like a bad power supply. Although first I would check it over by unplugging Every Card, Hard Drive, even Memory, (mainly anything that is connected into the Motherboard), One at a time usually is best, as you may find a faulty card, or bus, run the Motherboard strictly off the Power Supply, If it then seems to run correctly, try pluggin just One thing back in at a time, (memory, then Hard Drive(s), then cards, Video-LAN-Modem-Sound/etc.
This should give you a good feel for what/or where about your system is failing.. Good luck, A good standard size Power Supply Unit nowadays is about 600W+, a lot of systems we get from the stores, or online will come with just 400W+,.
Again, Good Luck, and Happy Holidays!
Let me know how this works for you.

remove all the ram from motherboard and switch on the system and see it is working or not like just on and fan are rotating and the smps fan is also working and your system is giving beep sound for ram.try with other smps also some time problem with power supply also. Remove the connector of power switch and restart switch and directly try to on from shorting the connector with the help of pen or screw driver point. Some time faulty switch also give problem. Just try all these possibilities.
Hope this helps. Please rate my response.
Have a good day.
