Here, this is really easy to use:

PCWIZARD:

Make sure all your fans are working...and how hot is the room you are in?

Well right now I'm back at my house<== they don't overclock their computer..... But they had someone build it so I don't really know what all is under the hood besides a 3gig processor from intel and 512 ram

no graphics card, asus motherboard.... and i don't know wat kind of psu

They hadn't even defragmented their computer so ......ya.. they wouldn't try to overclock....<==I'm basicly their free computer tech lol, a bad one at that....:\

There power fan was off... I think a fan must have died mabe

And PZEROFGH, what do you mean reset the bios..? How do I do that and why would I do that

Also do I need to just take off the case cover and turn on the computer and see if all the fans are running?

If it is a cpu fan then what should I do or what should they do

yes, do this and post back with your findings. check the psu fan, cpu, case(s), gpu.

also, install pcwizard and tell us what the temps are!

Open pcwizard and check temps. Bottom, right icon...copy and paste the temps etc....also if it looks dusty, esp the fans, get some compressed air and clean it WELL.
