Issue may be the software requirement and your RAM or Graphics Card. Ensure you have the proper hardware. If you do, chances are the DVD has a bad sector.

Dell xps 410 was in use, it beeped and shut down. Then it started powering up and off repeatedly. I pulled the plug to stop the sequence. When I repowered it, it now comes on, fan runs, dvd drives

It sounds as if you have a virus of some kind. I have just dealt with a similar problem. Even after the virus(s) were removed the service was still unable to start. The Operating System had been corrupted and required a re-install to get the system working again. System repair and restore failed. If the only problem is the fan running at full speed then you may need to apply a new layer of thermal paste. This stuff can go dry if you use the cheap stuff or it is old.

Three days ago my son spilled water near my computer. A little bit went on keyboard. The computer then would not trn on. Earlier today the computer turned on and went to fix screen but it kept loading...

Fist clean your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor specifically around your CPU central processing unit making sure there is no MOISTURE in the air line
as dust will cause a lot of static which will make a computer overheat and cause lots of problems
then test your power supply unit PSU if the fan is not working your PSU is faulty
replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive one bad lead will cause a computer to shut down
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty
then you might try
during the boot up process for a short time you will see press a certain key to enter set up
press that key to enter BIOS scroll to PnP/PCI configurations the default is disabled
select enabled to reset configuration if you have installed a new add on and it has caused a serious conflict that the operating system can not boot
hope this helps

I've just got an Emachine E525 I installed programes using the dvd drive that all worked fine, but now my dvd drive won't work

Power off the machine and then unplug the power for 30 seconds. Boot it back up and see if it can read the same cd's that you loaded before. If it can't then the drive might have to be replaced.

A problem has arisen with Trainz 2006. I have been using Surveyor to create a new route, which is quite complex, but, on saving the route on one occasion, the computer shut down completely. On booting up...

apparently your computer doesn't like Trainz 2006. lol. but anyway you should try to erase Trainz 2006, and reinstall it. And that should do the trick. If not, Install Trainz 2006 on another computer if another computer is available.
