My computer has stopped starting from this week.
I have made no changes to it at all.
I have opened it up and cleaned out the dust since it was overheating.
There have not been any symptoms until this week.
My computer doesn't have a POST beep anymore.
I replugged the RAM yesterday (Same Ram, switched slots), and it worked!
But the computer would still freeze, except on Safe Mode (With Networking).
I reformatted the C: drive, and when it finished, I put in some saved songs, and Mozilla Firefox (With my bookmarks history etc) from a CD. When I opened Firefox, it asked if I wanted to import any files from IE, I clicked no, and then it froze again.
It might have been a virus from some temporary files or something from Firefox but it is too late to check.
I had to do a forced shutdown by holding down the power button.
I removed the RAM, and it made a long beep when I turned it on, so, like 'yesterday', I replugged the RAM in.
No POST beep this time. I removed the RAM again and tried to turn on the computer.
No long beep at all now.
The fans run, the LED's are on. I unscrewed the back fan but it seemed like it was on pretty tight anyway.
The thing is, when I open my computer, if I lift a bunch of red black and yellow cables connected from the CD Drive, Motherboard, back fan, and this "Maxton QuickView" thing under where my floppy disk drive should be, it makes a stronger fan/engine sound which I usually hear when I start up my computer, which used to lead up to a POST beep.
I even tried reinserting the circular battery in the motherboard to no avail.
Thank you for reading my long post. And thanks in advance to any helpers!
