Default wont boot !

hey i need big help ,
i was just using my desktop pc when it suddenly froze, so, i hit the reset button as one would,
when it restarted it frozze agian not long after booting, i checked in the bios it was running a bit hot, i thougth it could be the tempreture, i took of the heat sink and cleared heaps of dust of from it and re aplied heat sink compond, etc when i turned it on same problem, then on the next boot iam not even getting any display, or boot sounds,
could this be a CMOS error if so how long do i need to leave the battery out to clear it ,
why is it doing this please help me fix it only thing i could think of is cmos,
there isnt even the single beep when u try to boot,
thanks ben

I dont think its your bios.

Leave it off for 20 mins. Power on and tell us exactly what it does and what boot screens come up if any.

Too many things to consider from where you are at.
1-Motherboard.
2- Hard drive.
3-OS corruption.
4- Bad Ram.
5- dead power supply.
