hello, i have a HP pavilion 05 5.1- 2600 build, when i push the start button on the front of the case,the 3 cooling fans come on for two seconds,then a green light on the back of the case goes out and the fans stop,then i hold the start button in for about 15 seconds and the green light on the back comes on again.i push start and the same thing happens again.

NOW this is where it gets weird,i can set a small floor heater next to the computer, with the side panel off so heat can get into the computer,with the inside of the computer around 95 to 100 degrees the computer will work just fine as long as the heat is on,if you take the heat away,it shuts itself down in less than a minute.

can anyone help me? i would apreciate any advice ideals or comments, thank you

A bit weird...for sure. Suggest you post your topic here...Internal Hardware

The only thing I can think of is somewhere there is a loose electrical connection that is expanding
just enough to complete the connection. But post in the internal hardware forum as someone
might just of run into this problem before or can help you trouble shoot it.

I know some xbox360 and a few laptops that had solder issues that wouldn't work until the system heated up enough to allow the solder to flow and reconnect broken pin connections. Either way doing this CAN'T be good for the system and will eventually fry something past the point of fixing.

If the power supply is good and always turning on then maybe a broken solder point on the MB?
