Ok. I'm pretty sure that is the case, as there is literally NO THERMAL PASTE on the cpu... wtf...
I cleaned the fan and will get thermal paste tomorrow. Thanks, and I will get back here with more info if it fails again.

ok, thanks tr1p1ea. I reset the BIOS to defaults, which appears to have reverted to earlier firmware... but it has fixed the problem.

EDIT: Now there is a new, similar problem.
I ran Windows normally and it let me set up an account. Upon completion it revved the fans up and the power light went blank and the screen disconnected.
Now it just shuts off after booting normally.

Yeah. I tried many different windows options and they all crash the comp when they load. The installers run fine though.

So my friend gave me a new... ok, semi-old computer. It runs ran Vista. Anyways, the main drive used to store files(and the OS) was corrupted, so I replaced it. Now there are 2 hard-drives in, and I think one may be corrupted so I removed it too, leaving only one that I am almost sure is fine.
So I boot into a Vista reinstall DVD and it installs just fine, however when it is supposed to turn off, the computer stays on with the same screen. Next, when booting, it shuts down after BIOS, and then the fans go berserk and spin extremely fast while the power ring around the button is off. Note: It should be on when the comp is POWERED ON. So I hold in the button to cut the power. This works, and I hit it again to restart it. It once again reaches BIOS, then goes to windows Safe-Mode boot screen, where I have four lovely options. You should already know what these are, and upon selecting any of the three Safe-Mode options, it loads the DLLs and then says I need to boot into normal Windows to continue the install. When I try to boot into Normal Windows, It shuts down again, and the fans spin. I read somewhere that this is a PSU problem, and I replaced it with a spare. Same thing happens. (I installed Debian, and it worked fine, but I want windows, so dont convince me otherwise)

So is it missing drivers? PSU faults? What could it be?
If I must, I suppose I could debian, but I do not wish to atm.

You could try getting parts from people's busted computers. After 3 years I actually have a really nice computer that actually works.

You can do it by just going to the app screen then going to the Y= menu and pressing Alpha + a letter

You can find a great Linux based OS at :D
I would recommend AMD as they are typically cheaper but I find Intel to be more dependent. Well, that I know of.
Also get an okay GPU so you dont regret it later.
Finally, make sure everything is compatible with the motherboard of your choice. I cannot stress this enough.

Juju, that's what's called an infinity mirror.

You place two mirrors, one translucent, close to each other, and mount LEDs in the gap.
That's pretty cool!
I think I just found a new hobby

And what about us without a constant internet connection? I personally hate the cloud, but I don't use twenty computers in which I have to constantly sync files between so yeah...
If you need to transfer files why not get a... FLASHDRIVE(or an external harddrive) :D

Just think how if he removes it or changes it, this thread will make no sense since it would be filled with the new face or just the ASCII one. :P

I think we should use the same type of skins for smileys. Compared to the shading of some, and the "pushing-out" of others (anti-bevel? :P._. just doesn't fit in. Then again, neither does  :angel:.

Also, I have a feeling this might turn into that old thread, but :3 would be a cool smiley.
