(Warning I am not good at explaining things and I know nothing about the inside of my computer lol)
a few weeks ago my computer shut down while I was playing online it started right back up and was fine for about 3 hours then it shut down again but this time it would not load past the Dell screen. my brother in law told me to blow the dust out of it and I did and my computer worked fine for about a week and a half then shut down again,got stuck on the Dell Screen,so I cleaned it out again but then it stopped even loading to the Dell screen.
now it won't power on at all when I turn it on the fan turns on, the power light comes on and then it just shuts down and if I just leave it alone it will turn on and off all night,does anyone know what could be causing this? a few people told me it sounds like my power supply and my brother in law tested it and said it was getting the right amount of voltage but that I should probably replace it anyway..but I don't really have the money to spend on a bunch of different parts so if my power supply is fine I don't want to replace it.
I hope I explained this to where people actually understand lol
