Windows 7: Computer takes a long time to turn on...

The video card is reinstalled by unplugging it and then plugging it back in after cleaning it and its slot, as I've written now three times. Then see if the PC starts. It's worked at least a dozen times I can remember.

You spent the first page of the thread discussing using a hair dryer, and said you plan to use it even after I posted a video showing how to use canned air which you didn't even acknowledge.

I'll leave you in the capable hands of Alan. We are a team here but I never really made the team.

When you found the power switch how was it set? With it switched in the on position when you hit the front panel power button do you hear any beeps of any lights from the mobo, stirring of the HDD, can you hit the delete key and get to a bios screen?

No Beeping at all, I came to the conclusion of following this video, I researched as well that it can be a ram issue.

Fixed! no signal to monitor - YouTube

I just need to make sure if this is the ram I need to remove

You can begin back at the top of the thread and complete every step you've been given. Don't skip any steps, or else ask back if you have any questions on how to complete them.

In the list of steps I first gave you for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start there are hardware tests in the forenote. Do those first, testing your RAM with memtest CD for 6-8 passes or overnight. Then test your HD with the maker's Booted CD diagnostics followed by Disk Check from the Win7 installer/Repair CD Command Line. All of those are provided in the tutorial. Ask back if you have any questions to get them done.

I provided you with a video showing how to blow the dust out of your case with a $5 can of compressed air, which you also never replied to or even acknowledged. Did you look in your case see how dusty it is, and do you plan to do this and when? This is necessary if the PC is overheating only. You may be able to boot into BIOS setup when the PC starts (look for key on first screen) to check temps. Were you aware of it shutting down for overheating before?

Yes those are your ram modules/sticks.

You can reinstall your video card to see if that helps, especially if its caked with dust needing the card and slot cleaned out.

All of the steps for starting unbootable Win7 are listed in order here: Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start.
Greg I will do whatever I can for my computer to start up, because recently it hasn't been booting properly . As of right now It's say no signal is found, I will try to do my old method when I unplug everything and plug everything back in to see if it will actually start up. After 30 mins of doing that every day I will see if the same method works. If it does I will do the steps you suggested, hang tight.

What would unplugging and re-plugging have to do with it? Could you have a bad cable to your PSU. Can you locate another and swap and see if that could be it?

To be honest with you I have no idea, but it was able to boot after 30 minutes.
