A few days ago, I came home and tried to turn on my computer, but it wouldn't turn on. I tried for a while to turn it on, but all my attempts failed. Finally, after 100 tries, it turned on. But after a minute or so, it turned off again and now it won't turn on at all. I'm not sure what broke my computer and I'm not sure what is broken. I've never had this kind of problem before. It is urgent that I get my computer fixed before July 30, so if someone could help me right away and get my computer fixed quickly, it would be greatly appreciated.

well it could be one of two things (possably more)

1. you could have blown your PSU?

2.you have overheated your computer (CPU, Motherboard)

1 way to see if you have overheated your computer would be to see if the capacitors around the CPU socket are raised.

the capacitors vary in colour and look like a small cylinder they normally have a type of "K" printed on them.
this K usually sits flush with the rest of the cylinder (dont be to concerned if it is raised only very slightly)

if it is raised them its a possablitly you have either damaged your Motherboard or the CPU and it will need to be replaced.

what are the system specs of your computer?

hopefully we can get this fixed by july 30 but sepending it might take longer if you have to order new parts and fix it so hopefully we can get this baby working :blink:
