    Ok, so what you are saying is the computer powers on but does not Post right? Are there any beeps coming from the computer? Try to power off the computer (hold the power button down for a few seconds) and then power it on again. It's possible that the CMOS battery is dead, so whenever the computer looses power it clears the cmos. When this happens the next time the computer is turned on it restores to default settings and sometimes has to be reset in order to boot properly.

Disconnect and reconnect all disc drives from the motherboard, then reconnect the power supply to the motherboard and plug in the cable. If it still has the same problem then it could be a bad power supply or a bad motherboard. I'm guessing motherboard.

    With the problems you described along with the system not powering off after pressing the power button for 5-10 seconds, it really sounds like the motherboard. Even if the CMOS battery was dead it would still allow the system to boot, but like shraterman said, you would have to reenter the settings but it sounds like you aren't even getting into POST and not getting any other action like video.

    If you've replaced the power supply and are still getting no fans, no LED on the motherboard, then it is most likely the motherboard that is bad.

When powering on the PC and you get no beeps, but you are getting power to the fans and hard drives, this may indicate either a bad power supply or bad memory. You can take the machine into a pc repair shop and have them test the memory and PSU for you.

My pc was working properly when I turned it off. Upon returning I powered up my pc (HP 805n) but it will not turn on. The green light in the back of the pc is steady, but no response. I've own the pc...

to trouble shoot,

open case and disconnect all cables except power supply.

if the computer starts up okay, then shut down and connect the cd-rom then startup. if that's okay then connect any other cables . if any one of the parts are defective you will find the stinker.
if the computer still won't go, try another power supply/
if that's okay, then the board might be bad

Hmmm.... mainly you have:
-20 or 24-pins connector, that is unique and goes directly to motherboard (powers motherboard and its components)
-4 or 8-pins connector that powers CPU
-the rest would be connectors for ROM (CD/DVD/BlueRay) and HDD devices (there are: molex and sata power conectors)

If you totaly unshure, there is manual:

Connecting my PSU to my Motherboard

The bare essentials to start a computer are PSU, Motherboard, CPU, RAM and Video.

Its possible the PSU arrived DOA. Though I've only had 2 DOA PSU's in the 15 years I've been building custom computers.

Hope this helps.

Hardware monitor found an error

Diagnosis: Lack of P.S.U. fan speed report indicates P.S.U. fan sensor damaged by overheating. This was caused by cooling fin blockage since the Sony design on this model cools the C.P.U. THROUGH the P.S.U.
Expert level fix: Remove P.S.U. Remove C.P.U. fan and vacuum. Remove C.P.U. cooling fins from C.P.U. and cooling fan mounts from fin box, vacuum. Reassemble C.P.U cooling system. Replace P.S.U. with O.E.M. part only since in this case it is proprietary to the unit.
