I am not sure what could be the problem with my desktop. I just recently added a secondary hard drive where all my data will reside. In addition, I did some cleaning (used some air gas to remove any dust) and removed the fan from the CPU. I replaced the fan making sure I put thermal glue. All seemed to work fine until it started to boot & automatically shut down. However, the light stays on so there is power. My first thought was it is overheating so I took the fan off the CPU & cleaned out the glue & added a new coat. I let it sit for a while & turned the PC back on still same issue. Then I replaced the video card but still the same issue. I can't seem to pin point the issue. Any ideas!!!!
