So today, I was playing GTA, nothing my computer can't handle, when suddenly, the screen froze and alt+tab/ctrl+alt+del didnt work. I shut down my computer, and when i tried to turn it on, 5 mins later, the power button flashed orange, and it started beeping. I unplugged everything, took off the side panel, and looked around. Nothing was out of the ordinary, so i closed it up, plugged it in, and turned it on. It did the same thing. I think the motherboard overheated, and the computer is going into a safe mode so that nothing fries. I am running a low-powered fan, and directing it into the case, also turning on the big fan in my room. If you can help, please just let me know. Thanks. :)

 

Specs:

Dell Inspiron 420 Refurbished

Windows 7

AMD 7780 (I think)

Dual-Core Intel processor

1 Case Fan, one Processor fan.

CX500 PSU

We need the sequence of beeps. Like S.O.S. is three short three long three short. The sequence will tell you whats wrong with it.

Also, if it helps, the monitor won't turn on when I turn on the computer.
