Upon returning home today at the start of my spring break, I find my desktop PC is busted. I have no idea when it stopped working or why but as of now it will attempt to boot and then shut off.
It will begin to start by showing the BIOS information and then proceeding to the Windows XP loading screen like it did when it worked properly and then it will arbitrarily power off. No warning, no indication of any particular component failing, no nothing. Subsequent attempts to power it on will result in it shutting down on its own, sometimes sooner, sometimes a bit later, but always shutting off.
