Precursor: I purchased a DVI cord to use between my monitor and video card for better graphics.

Problem: I unhooked my analog cable and hooked up my DVI cable. I initiated power up. The PC goes through BIOS and when it begins to load at the Windows start up screen, the PC shuts down! I hooked up the analog cable again without getting through the Window load screen. Now I am stuck.

Solution: This is the part where you come in…..please...

The CPU wasn't properly situated due to transportation.
Checked BIOS and temps started to skyrocket during start up. I pushed it
down until it snapped into position and now it works great.
