Question about HP Pavilion Computers & Internet
Sometimes (but not always) unplugging both the monitor and PC (and removing everything except the monitor keyboard & mouse) enables me to boot the machine. I have run every video, component, memory, motherboard and system diagnostic provided by HP and find no errors at all.. I've checked every cord and they all seem ok. I would really appreciate any suggestions on next steps to try.

I had the same issue 3 years ago. It was a very simple fix ($10). The thermal paste on the processor had turned to dust. PC would begin start up, go "I'm overheating!", and shut down. This would then start the loop of it starting, stopping, starting stopping. Found out when I removed the heatsink, and then placed it back on and it worked! Buy new paste, put it back together and you can save you PC (it's still going 3 years later now).

What fan there are 3!
ok, first things first.
an old desktop.
HP Pavilion Elite m9515y no monitor stated,
did you fist test the monitor to be sure its OK, on any other PC
simple tests, like this help, for sure both bad......!
did you know a 2002 monitor has and internal sleep timer clock that can be very confusing, no monitor stated make or model.
it is dead pc for sure. fan dead = dead PC.
let me say it sounds to me like the PSU is dead.
but I do tests first.
is the fan on the CPU running full RPM with power on?
if not pOWER IS NO GOOD, or the fan is no good
the fan must spin or the PSU is bad
or the PSU found shorted parts up stream.(power bus)
all PSU can shut off in 1second less.,
we strip the system down to make sure there are no shorted
unplug , all HDD, SSD and DVD/ CD drives
all PCI cards out
does the power stay one now, and CPU fan turns. fast
or is it all packed up in lent. as all do.
PSU dead , 1,2,3'4,5,6.... (we use voltmeter)
ever clean the best out? every year.
as seen here,
that PC will overheat. easy
all that. bad bad bad.to the bone.
the CPU will shut down overheated, all due
(intel inside or AMD) both do . self preservation mode.

Hmm it seems to be problem with Power Supply, but still if you can give a try connecting your system into other socket may be which is properly grounded one.
if the above didn't fix your issue, i would suggest you to disassemble and then assemble it again. try changing the data cable as well.. Last option left is if you have a spare SMTP checkout with that.
Let me know if it works..!!

Have you tried a different power cord? (longshot, I know, but it is one of the variables that you don't mention)
Have you tried a different A/C outlet?

SOURCE: HP pavilion a6554f won't boot
it may be a system file error, maybe its corrupted,if you have a recovery disc run it from bios in recovery mode, if you have a windows os copy, run system repair
