Re: my pc get hang and not working
If there is a excessive heatup or a short circuit in cpu or if there is a surge in power, The systems protection mechanism kicks in and stops all the processing. The reasons might have fried up some cpu components which is why its not restarting. Try some more restarts and If the cpu is not working at all, then there must be a problem with the power supply

This is usually dust clogging up the CPU cooler.
When the owner of the PC forgets to clean the fins and the fan of the CPU cooler it plugs up with dust and dirt and looks like the inside of a vacuum cleaner.
There is not enough airflow and thus not enough cooling, so the CPU overheats and the safety circuit shuts the CPU off until it cools down, and the CPU will not reboot the PC until it is cool enough that the safety circuit can reset.
First step remove the CPU fan and check the fins of the CPU cooler. If they are clean, the problem is usually somewhere else.
go to run
type chkdsk in black window
it will show if your hard drive is having problem.
it will also show you how to fix the problem it is doesn't work try replacing your ram and then motherboard.
First check if the monitor is functional by removing the monitor cable connected to the CPU, once disconnected you should see a onscreen display on the monitor (Keep the power cable intact).
Second check if the CPU is working (not stuck / hung) if you hear the windows logging on sound, then your CPU is fine. If you do not have sound enabled during startup or no speakers then once the system is on give it some time to load windows and then keep tapping the Caps lock or the num lock key, if the lights respond / glow on and off when you press the keys then the CPU is working.
Third check if the CPU has two display ports (in case if you have a onboard VGA and a seperate video card) disconnect it from one port and insert it in another port and restart the computer and see it it works. If you do not have two video ports then skip this step.
Fourth - Restart the computer and keep tapping F8 Key while restarting, in the windows advanced menu choose enable VGA mode or Low resolution video mode (based on XP or Vista/Win 7 the menu changes), if you can see that menu then the issue is with the display settings only. Once in VGA mode or low resolution mode reduce the video resolution settings and restart the computer.
