Hard to say what the issue is based on the information you've provided.

I'd reset your bios by removing the motherboard battery for a while whilst the machine is off, say for 5 minutes. Then replace the battery and attempt to power the machine on.

If that doesn't work try reducing the amount of components in the motherboard to the bare minimum i.e. remove additional PCI/e cards, hard drives and use only one stick of RAM.

Desktop or laptop?
Lights don't blink "randomly"... it should be consistent blinks...
