Hi, I suspect that perhaps it is your PSU on its way out. How old is it and of what power?

tried another PSU, still the same??!!

OK - in that case, if you have a pci graphics card, check that it is properly seated in mobo - you might have disturbed it when removing hard drive. Or, if on-board graphics, suspect mobo.

Could also happen if you had disturbed RAM sticks.

Its a time computer about 4 years old do you think i can get a motherboard to fit

Might be time to think of later model pc. But check all the aforementioned items first, could save you a bit of expense. Might not be too easy to replace Time mobo.

I see you have Green ticked Resolved. Have you given up?
