    Well, I guess I should have seen it coming, but now, it's finally happened. My computer won't start. First, I'll start of with a bit of history about it. It was bought in Holland (not by me) so I'm using an adapter to work it. It's a packard bell Imedia 6225 AIO (I think) 360 Gig, running windows 7. At first, it was fine, it was really quiet. However, last summer, it was really hot, and it started turning off at random times and it became really loud, to the point where it sounded more like a hoover than a computer. I moved it from under my desk to a more breezy area. After the heatwave had passed, the problems persisted. It would turn off seemingly randomly, but I soon realised it only turned off when I ran too much at the same time. (it was fine with it before the summer though). I didnt look too much into it because it was bearable. However, the night before it died, it was making strange grinding/stalling noises. From what i've researched, it seems to be a power supply problem. If it is, is it fixable at home? If I have to buy a new one, how do I know if it will be appropriate for my computer? Thank you very much for any help you can offer. I appreciate it.

    P.S. I have opened it up and cleaned it since it died. It was a little dusty inside. It still hasn't been working, but it eliminates a dust problem.
