Yes I openned it up and blew it out, reseated the memory and I even try another cd drive too. I also reinstalled windows on the drive in my computer as the slave, but when i put it back into the other computer it comes up with the message it find a HD with an operating system.

Could you tell me what's over heating? The processor, the power supply?

doesn't really work like that ,as the windows install will see it not the same motherboard and will not load .,if you get to the place were it says it has windows on it ,then why not reload windows again from there .
