my computer restarts usually and do not start in time and starts after about 10 seconds .another case is that when i turn it off manually and then turn it on it starts beeping giving 4 long repeated low pitch and high pitch sounds.then after startup message is displayed that cpu was shut down due to overheating and i press f4 to resume it.then it works fine.what could be the problem ????

Hello there, look at your manual for the motherboard - there it is explained what the beeps means. Seems to me there might be a problem with CPU cooling:
- Is your CPU-fan really spinning?
- Might you have the interior all dusty? try to clean=> Watch out for ESD!!!
- Have you dismounted it to check that the cooling-paste is still "wet".
