Hello Nbafreak24,

 

No video I`m afraid, perhaps you can just tell us what happens and what OS are you running.

Not sure what happened there. Im running Windows 7.


I turned on my PC yesterday and was able to use for a few hours, it turned off by itself while i was sleeping, and now all it does when i turn it on is a clicking/beeping sound and nothing else.

K, never asked for too much info in reply #2 as when it comes to devices clicking it quite often turns out to be the click of death when a hard drive is failing, from the additional info in your reply #3 I am suspecting that a cooling fan has failed (possibly the CPUs), clicking being the cooling fan blades catching and the beeping a warning of overheating, will have a better idea once we have some info on your computer.

 

Do you get nothing on the screen whatsoever from the time that you power up/

 

Please provide information about your computer, this includes is it a notebook or desktop, is it a custom build or brand name such as Dell or HP, if a brand name, provide the model name or series number (not serial) if a custom build post the brand and model name or number for the MB, the RAM (including the amount) add on video card if one is used and the PSU (power supply unit) providing these details will enable us to better assist you.
