I fell asleep with my computer on and when I woke up it asked me to do a repair so I did, then it said the problem was repaired. So then after the problem was repaired the computer restarted and brought me to a disk check and it just kept going to that and restarting. Now, the computer only powers up for a few seconds not even going to that disk check and when it powers down it takes awhile to boot back up even if I press the power button. What is going on and how can I fix it? Also, all the parts are brand new and it ran good for a few hours yesterday.

I don't think anything is overheating either because before I went to bed the temps stayed at around 27-29C

Well, I opened the case up and turned on the computer to see if all the fans were spinning on cooler, gpu, case etc and my pc stayed on during the whole repair and now I can get on it. So any idea's on what caused this problem so I can avoid this in the future

Also, some files I downloaded last night seem to be missing
