Hi there, my 'school' computer (dedicated to doing schoolwork alone) just stopped working. It turns on, nothing appears on the screen, then turns off, then automatically turns on again and repeats the cycle. Any idea what can cause this? I'm guessing it's a CPU problem.. Thanks in advance.

Yes it is, everything spins, but turns off, and then starts spinning again. Usually the computer beeps when no RAM is in the system but i tried it without RAM and it didn't make a sound, it just kept spinning silently. My guess is that it's a CPU problem, i'm not entirely sure tho..

sounds like a short

take out the motherboard and make sure all unnecessary standoffs are removed, make sure that the motherboard screws are all screwed in and are tightly screwed in.
