Bad PSU , possible
PSU runs OFF and on starts.
and the line called PWROK must set true.
try different video card? must be right express # rated.
ever use a voltmeter check power supply voltages?
this old system ,
how much will you spend to fix such and old rig.
it has no value now.
not only old but rare, the used market shows like NOTHING.
why mess with this old useless rig
why not buy say a 10 year old or newer system
something with support and a future running w7 or newer.
WIN XP is 3 year dead and a virus magnet
why are you messing with XP, and relic hardware
why>? just curious. just fooling around.?
PSU is like $50 good brands
use MOBO $50 ,i see 2 for sale
why would you pop for that, on a $20 or less rig?
ever go to GOOD WILL see all those newer systems?
or here. walfart, see these, at least these run and run w10 and
are not virus magnets and have VALUE.

You can try buying a cheap pci express video card and install it inside one of those slots and connect your monitor to the new video card and see if it will boot up. some computers have a beeping sound if something is wrong. if theres no beep then try to remove everything like memory and hard drives and just leave the power supply. if it still doesnt beep when you restart the computer, then it might be the motherboard.

you need to open up the case, and remove the CMOS battery ( a silver wafer-style battery about the size of a quarter) and leave it out for about 10 minutes. put the battery back in and close the case back up and DONT mess with ANYTHING ELSE. if the computer STILL wont boot, then your motherboard is bad, and will need to be replaced through the manufacturer of your PC.
