Default I think my computer overheated help!

alright i was just ripping the files of music cds so i could liten to them on the computer, but then it just turned off so i checked the back and it was really hot, then i tryed turning it back on but it didnt do anything, so i unplugged everything and repluggged still nothing.

then i opened up the computer and closed it quickly because it looked very confusing so should i take it into a shop or is there something i can do and..

what would of overheated and what should be replaced if anything?

hmm, then some real A** H*** made your PC, (sorry about bad slang)

tell them to effectively put thermal material between your CPU and Heatsinks.

actually it happend, that you might not have put load on ur PC before, as when u comperssed/copy music, CPU works at 100%load, and it eventually burnt your CPU die.

tell them to replace, and next time do not forget to use a good thermal material.
