Hi, to start off I am running an Asus P5Q SE motherboard. My computer would crash on startup after almost fully booting. Every once in a while I would get a cpu fan error asking me to press f1 to resume startup. Now the computer wont start at all. I press the power button and it starts up for maybe a second and then cuts off and continues to try and start up over and over until I unplug the power.

Problem could be caused by, overheating, dirt and dust clogging things up, faulty CPU fan sensor, TIM no longer transferring heat due to old age, dried out or cracked,
Faulty PSU.
Please supply your full specs, including the brand/model of the psu.
What OS is installed?
Is the rig overclocked in any way?
Do you have access to a known working Psu?

Most computers are designed to shut down when they get to hot, (so it won't start a fire). Have you checked to see if the CPU fan is connected and spinning? If it is connected correctly but not spinning, it needs to be replaced.
