    My computer has recently started turning on for 20 seconds then turning off and repeating infinitely. This has happened before but it mysteriously fixed itself in an hour last time. But this time it didnt it's been sitting in the corner of my room for 2 months I've tested it a few times still doesn't work. I want to know what the problem is so I can fix it or sell it for parts and buy a new PC. It makes weird noises and also beeps twice as you probably heard in the video. I appreciate all the help!

    Since you don't use it then it probably doesn't have useful data for keeps. Go download MS Media Creation Tool. Run it to create a Windows setup DVD or USB memory stick. Then boot it and do a custom install.

    So you dont think it would be a hardware problem? Could I please ask why this process will help just so next time I can help someone else. Thanks:)

    It maybe a problem with your hardware, or it could be Windows. So let's try the easy one first - reinstall new version of Windows.

    If you want to try hardware, you can unplug your video card if the PC has onboard video which you can use. And unplug all peripherals, except mouse and keyboard. Then see if it boots.

    Sadly I dont have a USB or another desktop. Would you think the GPU would be fine? Might find a new PC if you would like to buy this one for really cheap feel free. It has 1060 6gb evga superclocked series GPU i7700 kaby lake quad core processor. Idk why I added that but you never know am I right )
