Pc wont boot

My pc had been turned on for about 25 mins, I was gaming (not very system intensive) and the pc shutdown instantly, the monitor retained power so not a spike. System tried to rebbot itself but re-shut down half way through boot process, it tried to reboot again, only this time it only managed about 7 secs of boot process. This repeated itself about 5 times with the mount of time the pc booted for reducing each time until it does not boot at all. I still have a light come on at the on button but have nothing happen when switched on (no fans, drives, operable)
What has broken?

My system specs are:Win xp - sp3, 650W atx psu, e6600 duo processor and motherboard(pd5k asus i believe?? came with the pc), 9800gt g/card, 2x sata hd drives, 1x optical drive, 3gb ram. I installed ram, g/card and psu about 2 months ago and all has been very well till now.

Windows xp sleep suspend hibernate


make sure the cables have not come loose, then turn the monitor off then back on, if that doesn't work is where the fun starts. boot up to safe mode with networking. If that loads up and the screen is still black then either your monitor or video card need replaced. Hook up a different monitor if that works it is naturally your monitor, if not then it is your video card. Unless you are into high end graphics design, gaming, or hooking up to a flat screen tv, they are not too too expensive and can be swapped out in a matter of minutes

Notebook Crashes to PowerOff state when lid is closed


Running intense program with the lid closed will cause a sharp rise in temperature making the laptop hotter than it should be leading it into a shutdown. The second issue, windows should be shutdown properly rather than closing the lid, this makes the operational system unstable and will cause files to corrupt eventually.

You seem to have a corrupt display card. Is it on board or do you have a separate graphics card installed in your PC. Either way on restart graphics processor is not turning on. What does the Power and HDD indicator on the PC show during boot up. You could also have damaged the Hard Disk because of your abrupt shutdowns. You can open the side cover and try disconnecting the HDD power (Yellow, Black & Red ) cable and IDE ( 40 pin flat ribbon wire ) cable and try restarting. If your monitor starts up and shows BIOS page you have a faulty HDD. Also see if the processor fan is a working when you start the PC. If not you have a failed mother board. Are you getting the boot up RAM beep. If not before you do any of the above mentioned things Just pull out the RAM ( with PC unplugged ) and reinsert into the slot. It might get your PC working after all

Alienware Aurora Desktop does not boot, has no HD activity


If the activity light on the front of the tower is not glowing than it can be an issue with the power supply of the PC. Try to open the tower and try to reseat the Power supply cables and check.
You can also try to Reseat the RAM (memory) sticks. If you have 2 Memory stick you can just try to boot the pc with the help of one stick and vice versa. If still the issue persist you can try to do a test on the Motherboard. Simply take out the Memory cards and power on the pc . if you hear a beeping noise than the Motherboard is fine and if you dont hear a beeping noise that it is a faulty Motherboard.

I have a dell dimension 2400. My starts up fine


Most likely a motherboard issue.

Also ensure the CPU Heatsink is firmly attached. If the heatsink is loose, replace the plastic heatsink retainer

If it is secure, then the motherboard is the most likely failure point
