It IS the Power Supply cjshearer11.

The green LED light flashing is a diagnostic light now. The diagnosis is a bad Power Supply with a Gree LED flashing.

Secondly, notice how the accessories are unplugged, and the Green LED light is solid Green?

1) ALL of the LED lights combined use less than 1 Watt of power.
2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts

3) A typical Processor can use 51 to 125 Watts. Depends on what Processor it is.

Compaq Presario SR1350NX?
Uses an Intel Pentium 4, Model 519 (LGA 775 processor socket)

3.06GigaHertz maximum frequency rate (3.06GHz 'speed')
533MegaHertz Front Side Bus. (533MHz FSB)
1MegaByte of L2 cache. (1MB L2 cache)
Can use up to 89 Watts,


You press the Power On button. Inside the plastic Power On button is a Power On switch.

(Typical ATX power on switch,

http://www.directron.com/atxswitch.html )

The Power On button presses against the Power On switch making a momentary contact.
(The Power On switch is a Momentary Contact Switch)

This closes a circuit temporarily that has 5 volts present. The 5 Volt Standby power.
(The 5 volts is always present when the Power Supply is plugged into power)

The 5 Volts is directed towards a circuit within the Power Supply.
The Soft Power On circuit. (PS_ON)

This in turn 'excites' the Power Supply, and turns the Power Supply on.
(No pun intended)

The first chip on the motherboard to receive power is the BIOS chip.
(Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit)

Burned into the BIOS chip is a small program. The BIOS program.
The BIOS program looks to see what devices are installed, does a Ram Memory count, TURNS the Processor on, and hands the computer over to the Operating System.
(Windows XP, and Windows Vista are two examples of an O/S)

Your Power Supply has a weak voltage power rail.
(There are three main power rails in the SMPS in your Presario computer's Power Supply.
{Switched-Mode Power Supply}
The 3.3 Volt power rail, the 5 volt power rail, and the 12 volt power rail)

Enough power to light LED lights, and maybe spin fans, (Or spin a few times, and stop), but Not enough power to turn the Processor on.
NO Processor operating, no finding the boot record of the Operating System, on the Harddrive.

Do you have a KNOWN to be good, compatible power supply in an unused desktop computer, to use for a test unit?
Someone you may know may have upgraded to a better computer, and have a working computer with a Power Supply that you could borrow.

Needs to be an ATX form factor Power Supply.
Form factor for a Power Supply refers to the size, and shape of the case, for one.
It also applies to the power cables coming out of the power supply.

The size and shape of the case is;
6 inches Wide, 5.5 inches Long, and 3-1/2 inches Tall.

Needs a,
A) 24-pin ATX main power cable,
B) 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable,
C) Enough standard 4-pin Peripheral power cables, for the optical drive/s (CD/DVD drive/s),
D) One SATA power cable

A) 24-pin ATX main power cable:


B) 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable: (Power for the Processor)


C) SATA power cable: (Power for the SATA Harddrive. 15-pin cable)


D) Standard 4-pin Peripheral power cable:


The ATX power supply inside that Presario, is probably rated at a maximum Wattage of 250 to 300 Watts.
Made by some generic Power Supply manufacturer.
Bestec, HiPro, or Delta.
Around 90 percent of the desktop PC's out there use an ATX Power Supply.
You can buy one with as much Wattage as you want, won't hurt the computer.
A computer ONLY uses the power it needs, and No more.

if your TV Tuner is a PCI device...

put it in the PCI slot of the motherboard..

then after the rebooting process..

install the hardware through the installation cd..

so that you can use better..

Check that the ram memory hasn't come unseated from the mobo. If you are using an above board video card also check that it is properly seated as well.

The clicking noise from the PSU is kinda perplexing though...

If you have dual RAM modules, try install with 1 memory module installed

i have problem finding reformate disk how do i download

HP Compaq... | Answered on Sep 25, 2008

Appears that recovery disk #2 is bogus. U can try to get a new set from HP (fat chance!) or you can do a reload from a normal, retail OS disk.

HP Presario... | Answered on Jun 21, 2017

Most laptop or PCs, has a combination keyboard pressing keys, that invoque the restore routine.
usually F11 or F10.
others has DVD, check and see what you have of these two.
in the first one, you recover from a disk partition the whole OS.

Its all about go to HP page, and bios updates, the instructions are there too!

but be aware you have to be more specific on model, and BIOS dates.

HP Presario... | Answered on Jan 26, 2017

You may have a virus, malware, adware, a browser hijacker, or pups (potentially unwanted programs).

A. If your computer will boot and you can operate it ok...

Download and install Malwarebytes and Superantispyware (Note: If you can\'t do the download on your machine, do it on a friend\'s, put them on a thumb drive, and install them from it). Then scan your computer with each program, and quarantine anything found.

B. If your computer won\'t boot, or can\'t operate properly after boot...

Tap F8 when you are booting, select "Safe Mode With Networking". Download and install Malwarebytes and Superantispyware (Note: If you can\'t do the download on your machine, do it on a friend\'s, put them on a thumb drive, and install them from it). Then scan your computer with each program, and quarantine anything found.

C. If this process finds malware, to keep stuff like that from coming back, I recommend you get the paid version of Malwarebytes.

Good luck
