Question about Computers & Internet
Clear your CMOS by removing the CMOS battery for a while. Then put the battery back. Start your PC and enter the BIOS and reset it to system defaults.
You could also try to "Reseat all internal components" meaning mainly PSU connections, CPU and RAM. Sometimes there is a static build-up rendering your component unable to respond and to function properly. If you reseat it, you remove the static and it should function again.
If all fails, then either your CPU, MB or your PSU is faulty. Ley me know what the PC does as soon as you've tried the above mentioned techniques. Please remember to always note Computer specifications and Operating system details when you post a problem.

Hi, If the computer is hot near the electrical plug in the back of the computer then the power supply needs to be replaced. This will also cause overheating problems if the fan does not exhaust enough air. You should not run the computer in this condition because the power supply can short out and take other components with it. Also there is a risk that it will burn up. Power supplies are very inexpensive and can be changed by anyone with basic computer repair knowledge. Hank
