Check if the Power Supply Unit (PSU) supplying adequate power to the computer or not.
eXtreme Power Supply Calculator - The only power supply calculator trusted by PSU manufacturers and computer enthusiasts
Also let us know the wattage of the installed PSU.

Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .
If you dont supply the information properly as asked, it will be difficult to continue with.

Okay, now I opened it up and deep cleaned everything inside very carefully. I turned it on again and it was still useless but after some kicking and beating I made it work again. I dont know for how long though...

By the way, please just help me get this straight. This is more of less how the computer rear looks.

I dont remember exactly how I had it before turning everything upside down but right now I have a HDMI cable going to my main monitor whereas my second monitor is connected with a DVI cable to the second DVI slot (so the first DVI slot is empty now). Is it correct to have it like this? Before all this madness all I remember for sure is that my secondary monitor was connected to the FIRST DVI slot and that my first monitor was probably connected to the second one (I dont know why). However, I dont remember whether I had the HDMI cable connected too.

It seems to work perfectly the way it is now but I am not sure whether it is the right way to do it.

Thank you.

Did you load defaults in BIOS yet?

Yes, my bios has all default values. I tried the calculator thing but I dont quite understand it. The Speccy thing seems to need installation which I dont think it is a good idea right now with all the problems I am having. I need to rule out every possibility such as recently installed drivers and programs.

I would appreciate an answer to my question abov though. I think that could lead to the solution.

Thank you.

Speccy is used for troubleshooting.

Anyway, as you dont want to follow the instructions, I cannot do anything here.

I'm unsubscribing.

I only deep cleaned it from inside. All the pins and slots. Then I turned it on but it didnt come back right away. I had to beat it and kick it a little bit, turn it off and on again. After all that I finally got it to work.

Anyway, It had worked alright the whole week but today (monday) its not turning on again. Seems like it hates mondays just like Garfield and myself. The only theory I have about this is that I keep it on the whole weekend from friday all the way to monday. So maybe its tired of being on for over 3 days on a row and needs some rest. I am considering buying a new grahic card.
