Overheating When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are clogged with dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed air to do this.

if it does that every time, including the clock, then the your cmos battery is dead and requires replacement. it's a small watch battery and should be easy to spot on the motherboard.

There are a couple steps you can take to find out if you are not afraid to open the computer.

Open the computer and find the memory sticks. Remove all of them, if there are more than one, and try starting the computer. Be sure you are touching the metal on the case before you remove them or replace them to remove any chance of static shock.

If you get beep codes your motherboard and powersupply are working.

If you do get beep codes put one memory stick in and try again. If you only have one stick try that. If it still does not work move the memory stick to a different slot and try again.

I had a similar problem with another computer with bad memory.

If it was an intermittent problem, like the computer would turn on 1 out of every 4 attempts WITH the video card in, then MAYBE it's a bad power supply. With everything you have said though, it definitely just sounds like a bad video card. I have burned out 2 video cards myself and had to replace them, so I wouldn't be shocked that you have a bad one because they seem to go out more often than power supplies.
Replacing either component can be pretty costly, so if you want to test the hardware before you go off and buy new hardware, I would try to borrow a working power supply of equal or greater wattage and try to run your computer with that and your current video card. To see if you can get it going, but I'm betting the video card melted somewhere.

When I had this problem it turned out to be my video card (unless my p/s is on its way out and just won't power the video card anymore). Removed the video card and switched to onboard VGA and it boots fine. Had no Win7 Aero though so I went into bios and set it to onboard VGA and UMA 256 instead of Auto and my Aero is back as well.

When you turn it on, does it respond? Do any lights lit up? Do you have a known good ac adapter to try it with? Or is the ac adapter you are using lits up and/or powering on a different computer?Try to test both to check the functionality of the ac adapter and the port. If ac adapter will work with a different pc, then possibly the port is damaged. You may need to replace the motherboard. If still it wont turn on, then you may just need to replace the ac adapter.

Hello, Trravrrn.

Naturally that can happen due to multiple, multiple reasons. Many are natural known ones like viruses, hardware failures, and software errors.

What I'd say is go to the problems section and restate this question you asked again but instead state some of the recent changes you have made to the computer itself.

It is the re-recordable version of the DVD-R. To use this type of media you will need to buy a DVD-RW recorder. The DVD-RW recorders usually record DVD-R, CD-R and CD-RW media, too. Similarly to what happens to DVD-R, DVD-RW disks can be played in newer commercial DVD players without any problems. Older commercial devices cannot recognize the media, refusing to play the disk. To play a DVD-RW disk, commercial players need the disk to be finished. After finishing the disk, you can only record new data in it by reformatting it, which makes you lose all the recorded data.


It is the re-recordable version of the DVD+R and everything that was said about the DVD+R is valid for the DVD+RW. Only the newest DVD players play movies recorded in disks using this format. There are recorders on the market that can record both DVD-RW disks and DVD+RW ones. These recorders are called DVD?±RW. Similarly to the DVD-RW, the disk needs to be finished to be played in commercial DVD players, and to record new data in the disk after having finished it requires reformatting it, which makes all the data in it to be erased. DVD+RW recorders are usually capable of reading DVD-RW disks (but not of recording them) and vice-versa.

There you are.
