PC won't start


OSNN Senior Addict
My pc has just shutdown and won't restart properly.
to start with it couldn't find the secon HDD and would shutdown after a few minutes, now it gets as far as the black screen and gives the warning " CPU HAS OVERHEAT" or something. I cannot tell mcuh more about this as i am offshore and the wife has descibed this over the phone. Any idaes on how to fix this?

Good grief Charlie Brown
Sounds like the cpu fan has given up. Not much you can do till you get home unless the wife is a bit savvy with replacing things inside the case.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
