Tyou should find you rmanual and find the reset button or jumper. You must also try to find out what went wrong first why it went on thermal shutdown. You have to resolve the problem first. It could still be there that's why it wont post. If you know how to changes all your cmos.bios settings then if you can not find the reset jumper or switch you can actually reset your cmos to default factory setting. be careful though because you haver to know all your settings, the dates as well for your software activation. i suggest that you remove first the connection of your hardisk until you get your board running then put it back. do not boot your hard disk with the wrong date in your cmos. it will corropt your softwares specially virus protection

    it's only a matter of determining wether it is your CPU that got damaged or your main board. If it is thermal trouble it is possible that the CPU is the defect but you can just do a trial and error now to determine which is deffective. if you can find a termporary replacement for both the board and cpu. but please clarify how did you reset? did you find the jumpers if no switch? when you say reset that would mean putting back the cmos bios to factory default. if you did not find the jumper to reset then you did not really reset the system. remove the battery and leave for at least 5minutes. that will also reset the system.

If power on board then woking properly but working off after 20-25 mintues


20 to 24 minutes?

A) Plenty of time for the Processor (CPU) to overheat, and turn off. (BIOS turns it off)

1) Heatsink fins clogged with 'Gunk'?
(Dirt, dust, lint, hair, old socks {No}, banana peels {No)

2) Processor fan, and computer case fans dirty?

3) PROPERLY replace the Thermal Paste.
Thermal Paste looses it's thermal conductivity properties over time, so don't think you can just stir it around a little bit, and everything will be fine. Properly clean, and use fresh, new Thermal Paste.

B) Check the Electrolytic Capacitors on the motherboard.

(IF used.
ECS motherboard?
Since they are budget motherboards, there is a good chance Radial Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors are used, and very few, if none at all; Solid Polymer Capacitors)

http://capacitorlab.com/visible-failures/index.htm

Believe the problem to be more heat (Overheat) related, though.

Video freezes and motherboard give one long beep


Replace the Thermal Paste on the Processor.

Make SURE you THOROUGHLY clean the Top of the Processor, and bottom of the finned Heatsink; BEFORE Properly applying fresh, new Thermal Paste.

Use a plastic scraper to clean off the Processor, and Heatsink.
I use an old credit card. (Good use for bad rubbish)
Scrape off as much as you can. Use a can of compressed air for computers, and blo-w off the scraped old thermal paste.

Then use Q-tips dipped In Isopropyl Alcohol. (Rubbing alcohol)
91 percent is best, but 70 percent will do.
50 percent = No IMHO. 50 percent water, and 50 percent Alcohol.
Takes a LOT of alcohol dipped Q-tips, as it usually turns into a gooey mess.
How clean? Clean enough you could literally eat off of it.

CAUTION!!
Isopropyl alcohol is EXTREMELY FLAMMABLE!
Use in a WELL ventilated area with NO sparks or flames present!

Dripping alcohol off of the Q-tip? Don't sweat it. The alcohol will evaporate.

http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/274

The BEST method is to actually remove the motherboard.
Why?
Because you can then hold the motherboard at eye level, and look across.
Look to SEE that the finned Heatsink is sitting FLAT on the Processor.
CANNOT be ANY daylight seen between the Processor, and Heatsink.

FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions. If you do not know what Anti-Static Precautions are -> STOP!

You DO NOT want to STATIC SHOCK the Processor, or the other hardware components.

(What you heard is a BIOS Beep Code. The computer's way of telling you something is wrong; and an area to look into for it.

The one long beep means a problem with the Processor.
Thermal Paste dries up over time, and the constant heat of the Processor.
The Thermal Paste looses it's thermal conductivity properties.

[The Processor and graphics chipset; are the two hardware components that give off the most heat ] )

Windows 7 will run for a while then shut down by itself. Then the computer will not post up. Shuts down as soon as the CPU fan kicks in. will come to life every 5 min by itself and shut down again in a few...


Take special notice of the link.

I might have suspected a software issue but as you mentioned no post after the shutdown I do suspect a thremal issue

Your fan speeds up and slows down in response to temperature inside the computer. More so the CPU.

I would suggest getting a can of compressed air made for computers

Take it outside, take of the side and blow all the gunk out of there, Really go to town around the fan (you might want to wear eye protection)
While you are in there just check that the CPU cooler itself is not loose

(NOTE YOUR COOLRER MAY BE DIFFERENT)

If it is it will have to be re-seated.

If it needs re-seating don't just take it off and put it back on as that might make things worse with your temperature problem they have to be cleaned and new thermal grease put on ($2-5)

DON'T remove the CPU just the fan/cooler assembly.

You must clean both the surfaces without scraping anything off. Use isopropynol alcohol and cotton bud sticks until both surfaces are clean, you can use your finger nail to scrape harder residue if you wish but nothing else.

DON'T pour the alcohol over the CPU

Now apply some new thermal grease (most computer shops have it)

Be careful about how much you put on

Here are
some basic instructions

Once you have re-assembled your cooler and re-connected it check everything is OK and power up the computer.

If everything went to plan you should now be back in business
 
Hope this gives you the information you need

Check cooling fan and that system is NOT overclocked. It may be overheating. Make sure heatsink for processor is done right.

Shut down after 5 - 10 min.


the most likely case is CPU-OVERHEAT EMERGENCY POWEROFF command executed by motherboard in this case apply new thermoaste on cpu, and clean fan/replace on bigger if doesn't help/cpu is overclocked
