My graphic card is a amd radeon HD 7750. My computer is about 10 months old. Any knowledge of how to fix it?

I had this issue before with this very card, Do you have AMD overdrive on? (the overclocking software provided found in the catalyst control center) If so try turning that off, generally fixes the issue 8/10 times.

try taking your gpu out first of all and see if your pc shall boot, if not try running it in safemode, if you can get to safemode scan your pc for viruses or malware, and ensure all your drivers are up to date. If the problem persists check your ram.

Also have you got a lot of memory left on your Hd? around 100Gb space?

To check your ram provided you can get to a full boot try a program called Memtest86 if the test fails replace your ram.

otherwise It may be your Harddrive.

Okay so thing is... Im not good with computers so you'll have to be more detailed. And a weird thing is that acctualy my GPU is kinda "stuck". Weird I know... Tried so many times to get it lose with no luck. Other times when I have had problems with my GPU and people told me to update my drivers I try but everytime it says they are up to date.

Alright, in the Slot that your Gpu is in there should be a small clip/button/lever somewhere (often on the right side of the socket) Press that and the Gpu should slide out with probably a small amount of resistance, but nothing drastic.

When you start to boot (the moment you press the power button) Tap F8 until it brings you to a screen with options, then select safemode with networking.

Use your antivirus to scan for viruses, Install malwarebytes and do a full scan to check for malware.

Memtest86 is a free program that is easy to use and will run a test on your Ram to see if it's working correctly.

In addition try installing a program called HWmonitor, this shows what temperatures your hardware is running at.

Hope this helps.

Let me remind you guys, this might not have anything to do with the GPU. I mean it might be my motherboard because when I try to start the computer my mouse and keyboard wont even work and the thing about the GPU is that it's fan makes a weird noise.

You'd be surprised the gpu can cause a variation of issues, but if you can't remove it try the rest of the steps and see if that fixes it.

Well, first things first... I have to get my computer to start. When I press the power button it lights up but it doesn't really start. My neon in the computer does not light up and neither does my mouse so I would not say that my computer powers up. :p

Sounds like your PSU has died then.
