I was playing games on my computer and all of a sudden it shut off and beeped a bunch of times. I soon realized that my CPU was overheating from around 40 degrees celsius to 80 anytime I would play a game. After finding this out I took off the fan part that helps keep the processor cool and seen that almost all the thermal paste was burnt off the processor and fan part and that there was dust caked in the fan.
I got a compressed air can and blew all the dust off the part and put more thermal paste on and attached the fan part to the processor again. I then turned on the computer again and it took forever to load to the desktop and even when it got to the desktop it took forever to load anything, and when I say forever I mean like 1 minute to highlight a shortcut on the desktop.
I restarted the computer and now it doesn't even load the desktop. The computer loads to the point where it says "Starting Windows" And then freezes then restarts over and over again.
I am completely confused about what the problem is and I would love it if I got any kind of help, because I have had none.
