Ok the computer P.O.S.T do you here any beeps? and What kind of motherboard do you have? Depending on the Beep code we can determine whats wrong with it. Since you mentioned overheating you may have a damaged component. Also list what kind of video card, and Memory you have

I'm thinking he blew the power supply or something? Hes using the cheap power supply that came with the case (I told him what parts to get, we're friends). You think this is true, and how can he test it?

There are a couple of ways to test the PSU, the easiest is to purchase something like the Antec ATX12V tester for about fifteen bucks. The other way is to remove the power cord from the AC receptacle, pull the 20/24 pin PSU connector from the motherboard, place a wire jumper between the green wire and any black wire, this bypasses the motherboard. Plug the power cord back in and use a voltmeter to read the different rails.

This site has the color code and associated rail voltages, the first page is for the twenty pin connector, you will have to go to the second page for the twenty four pin connector.

If you are not comfortable doing this...don't.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Well actually now he told me when he got a new IDE cable the other day, he was doing something and was too lazy to turn his computer off. So he decided to plug his cd drive in while his computer was on... He then told me he saw some sparks coming out. So pretty much he fried his motherboard. Going to have to RMA it now. Thanks for the help anyways guys!
