Protox,
With the cover off:
Boot up the computer.
Do you hear any beeps?

Be sure, at a convenient time, to remove power from the unit and using a can of compressed air to blow all of the dust out.

Tried removing ram, doesn't start.

No beeps and tried different monitor. No handy dandy air spray will get some soon

If even with all ram disconnected, you get no beeps, then I recommend replacing the power supply unit.

did u try booting with either of the rams on either of the slots. ???

if that doesnt work,... try removing the graphic card and booting teh computer with the onboard graphics ?? if it starts up then we have a graphics card issue..

If nothing works try using a spare power supply and not the one that came with system

The power supply displays no sign of issues. Ill see if using a different psu is the issue but im doubtful.

Ive unplugged any usbs, reseated everything and tried new monitors, new graphic card as well as new ram cards. Ive tried everything. Lol.

Sounds like you are left with:
Defective power supply or
defective power switch or
defective motherboard.

welll dont install any new graphic card.... What u need to check is with just 1 ram and the monitor connected to the onboard graphics on the motherboard... see if you are able to boot. we are trying to start with a bare min hardware...

If still that doesnt work..... then PSU is the last option......like i said try with a spare

If that doesnt work either.... then the only probable culprit would be your mobo.

That's sounding like what you're faced with based on your description. Even if the power supply and switch are good, no beeps from the board with no RAM installed is usually not a good sign. I've run across boards where beeps weren't used to identify problems but those had LEDs instead that would perform that function.

Well what's really confusing throughout this entire process of diagnosing what's wrong with my computer, besides all the redundancy, is that when it's up, it works wonders. Plus I read that the amber light right beside the power slot that shows the blue light means that the computer is in hibernation. And also one of the solutions that worked was to hold down the power button for 4 seconds causing it to wake up.

top right, left one.

If it is the power supply defecting/dying, why would using a "wake up from sleep" solution work, and work only once?

Edit: Another thing to note is when I contacted HP Support hotline, they were going on about corrupt software files, and primarily that, nothing in there did any of the people I talked to go on about anything related to hardware issues/failures. Another thing to note is this thread by HP:

^Update for my mobo nvidia chipset. No idea if it has any relation to my problems.
