Went to bed last night, computer was working fine. I had logged off, but left the CPU running. When I woke up this morning, the Intel Inside logo was on the monitor and the computer would do nothing. I shut it down from the switch, tried restarting, but nothing comes up but the logo (nothing else happens at all). I tried cleaning the dust out with canned air - no change.

Re: Stuck on logo screen
I hate to tell you, but that is bad news. But before we jump to any conclusions, first open up the computer and look for the BIOS reset jumper on the motherboard, if you find it switch it to clear CMOS for around 20-30 seconds and then put it back on normal and see if it boots. If it doesn't, there isn't much more we can do, as your motherboard most likely decided to keel over and die.

So, your description said that you turned off the computer during software update process, that sounds not good at all. Updates need to run to completion, or major failure happens.
You did not mention the version of Windows that you are using, so help is limited.
BE aware that a system restore means all data will be overwritten and lost. I suggest that you extract all data before you do anything. remove the hard drive and hook it up to a good computer, via USB and get all of your files and settings.
The machine probably has the restore files on the D:\drive.
You should try booting into safe mode. Press the F8 key before the windows logo and choose safe mode without network support. If windows loads run a checkdisk by right clicking on the c drive, left click on properties and then select the tools tab. From there you can run a disk test to check for errors. If you get that far then reboot and see if it starts normally. If not try F8 again and try selecting restore the last known working condition. This will restore your settings from the last time it worked. If you can’t get to the F8 screen get back with me and I will try a few more drastic solutions. Good Luck
Remove the power cable and hold down the power button for about 30 to 60 seconds. plug the power back in and see what happens. If fail look at the back of your computer ans make sure that the fan for the power supply is on. Also make sure that the red switch is set to 115V and not 220V. This is also located in the power supply.
If al has failed your power supply is no longer working and will need to be replaced.
Seems that your CPU-Cabinet is not giving the video output for your monitor. Please check the powercord and other internal assembly (if possible) that runs in and around the cabinet and restart the machine.
this is a complicated fix to diagnose over emails but first, the hd had been hit the power outage while accessing the hd can damage it. so I recommend reloading windows fresh if it cannot then you may have damaged the cd rom /dvd drive. what version of windows are you running?
Can think of only three possibilities: 1. CPU fan motor, bearings needs lubrication or replacement; 2. Power Supply fan motor, same as above or any of the other fans; 3. Hard disk spindle motor (though unlikely).
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
