Question about HP Media Center m1080n (PC099A#ABA) PC Desktop
I had a similar problem. Moved a 4-year-old desktop. Got the flashing light and no start. Quick fix is to unplug unit, open up case and unplug the large power connector on the motherboard. (On mine this is marked P1 and has a lock tab on one side that must be held in while unplugging.) Plug the 110-volt power and THEN plug the connector back into the motherboard. Button the case back up and all will be well until the next time you shut the power off to the computer.
The cause of this problem is likely that the battery on the motherboard is nearly dead. The flashing light is a warning to replace the battery. (It would have been nice if they would have put this into the user manual.) When you disconnect the power as described above, you interrupt the low-battery circuit. Replace the battery and all should be well.

You have to check your power supply unit first, if the problem is not solved then you unplug every thing from *********** board except the processor and ram, if the processor fan is moving then one of the component is the culprit, otherwise your your motherboard is bad and need repair
