Hi
Thank you in advance to anyone that can help,

So seemingly overnight my gaming computer of a year has stopped working, I try turning it on and it starts booting up for about 7 seconds before it shuts down again then it boots up on its own for about 2 seconds and shuts down, repeating this process indefinitely. I've tried everything I can think of, I made sure the wires are plugged in, I opened it up and checked the motherboard and made sure nothing is rattling inside, I even reset the bios by removing the CMOS from the motherboard (because I couldn't find the jumper) but nothing worked, I really can't take it to a pc repair shop and just thought I would ask the opinion of people on here first. my specs are

Motherboard - MSI Z97 Gaming intel Motherboard
Processor - Intel Core i7-4790k CPU
Graphics card - EVGA Nvidia GTX 970
Power supply - EVGA Supernova 550 W Gs Gold 80+
Fan - ARTIC Freezer i30
Ram - G skill 8GB (4x)

Thank you

Most of the time when a computer turns itself off, it is related to a heat problem.

Three things to examine: The thermal past may have dried up, the CPU fan, if one is attached might not be working and/or one or more of the case fans might not be working.
