Answers :

This type of problem is likely be a hardware problem. The porwer supply is shutting down, but not the CPU Fan for heat protection. You ha to do a maintenance job first. Disconnect and open up the computer, first touch the chassis to discharge any static charge you may have. Clean every thing inside, do not remove the CPU heat sink.

When all is cleaned. Troubleshoot!
  1. Disconnect the drives
  2. \015\012
  3. Take the memory modules out. Note the notch in the botton of the module(s), is important. The memory only fit one way.
  4. \015\012
  5. Take out any PCI Card you have.
  6. \015\012
  7. Turn on the PC. If it Beee-beee-beee, etc. Good sign!
  8. \015\012
  9. Disconnect and place one memory module at a time. Turn on. Screen is Working (booting)? Note: If you have a Video Card extracted, One beep is good. Replace with the other memory, if good, memory are OK.
  10. \015\012
  11. Use these step for the PCI cards, but not replacing, only adding them.
  12. \015\012
  13. If the PC is working, Connect the drives one by one. The Hard Drive of Operating System Last.
  14. \015\012
  15. If from step 1 to step 7 the computer boots (you see booting on screen) You are done.
If you had the the computer without drives, memory, and PCI cards, only the motherboard, and it does nothing, Hmm! you have a problem. Look for the BIOS jumper to reset the BIOS, if still nothing, I take the motherboard goes 10-7.

At this point, I strongly recommend call a Tech for Second Opinion.
Maybe you need to reconfigure BIOS?
Press "del" in most cases of MB's and look around the menu and you should see "Chabge to factory Default setting" or something like that.
Just reset it to factory settings. If that does not work have a look for a Live XP! CD and try booting from that.
