This afternoon, I was browsing the internet, and my computer randomly shuts down, like it's rebooting itself. Ever since, I can't boot up again. It gets to the checking NVRAM, ten the blinking curser, which never stops.

Help?

Is this a desktop or laptop?

Can you get into the CMOS/BIOS Setup?

It is a desktop, and I am able to get into the Bios - I'm not exactly sure what I'm doing within the BIOS but I can get there.

In the BIOS, 1) is the date and time correct, and 2) is the hard drive being detected? (You should see the hard drive model number).
