    Hello, the first concern will be the data on your disk. Do you have backups?
    Do you use disk imaging?

    If not, you need to find out if the data is accessible. There are two basic possibilities.

    a. Boot up your PC using a live boot disk or USB device- if it will. We don't know if your laptop has developed a serious fault.

    You can download and use the boot disk kindly provided by a forum member- at the top of the Software and Apps section.
    See if you can boot from that and access your HDD.

    b. Remove your HDD from your laptop, put it in case and connect it as a USB device to another PC.

    Once you have found a way to access your hard disk, make a copy of all essential data if you have not yet started to back up routinely.

    Then check the SMART parameters for the disk to see if it is healthy. (If you don't know what that means, a search engine will readily help you). A program called Crystaldiskinfo (free) is one of the many that will show you SMART parameters.

    Please post back with your results.

    We need to know you can access your HDD, and that it is viable before proceeding and attempting repairs.

    It would also help if you can tell us the history.
    For example: 'My laptop was working fine yesterday but today when I turned it on it doesn't work' or 'I just dropped my laptop and now it doesn't work' etc...

    1st, its a desktop. Kindly please read again my issue. Thanks!

    History: normal use - browsing, watch/listen movie/music, playing crossfire and bluestacks for coc. No heavy use such as rendering.

    Then it suddenly shuts down. I power it on again then an hr past it shuts down again power it again then some minute past shuts down again

    I clean my system unit. Remove plenty of dustweb and power it on...boom! Only the cpu fan spins and power led is on. No monitor display, no beep sound, hdd led not blinking.

    Thanks for the history. Could it be you've disturbed some cabling?

    I can't necessarily tell without looking up your PC model whether it's a desktop or a laptop. Sorry. I don't carry a mental list of such things, and you didn't mention desktop or laptop. Please forgive my assumption.
