I don't know what happened to it! It was completely and totally fine before we moved, and it's been sitting in the room this whole time!
Now, when I turn it on, the keys light up, but the screen stays black. Then it turns off and on, like it restarts but doesn't get there and reboots itself, over and over.

Idk wtf the deal is, nor do I have money to take it in to fix it!!!

Can anyone help me?!

And if you don't know can you bump please please please!

This computer does this to me.  It takes a while for it to get computed after it's been unplugged a little bit.  I would unplug the whole thing.  I usually, un plug the computer cord from the back of the computer wait a minute and plug it back in.  Hopefully, that will help.  If I have to sometimes I unplug everything even from the wall if I have to.  I would make sure everything is plugged in tightly sometimes if it's loose it will act up.  I hope it helps.

Oh honey, I hate to tell you this. But, when my computer started doing this, it was the motherboard. It had went out and has to be replaced. Unfortunatly, it's an EMachine, and will cost 200 bucks to fix, which I don't have. Mine did exactly what you are describing though, good luck!!

Sounds like your hard drive went out..... DH agrees and he's a computer guru.

 Power Supply needs changed out.

At least that is where we would start. SO builds them.

I've tried and it's going like a broken record, and I think it's starting to over heating itself.

I wonder if this is going to be a kiss of death for it. ]: that would be so sad.

Thank you, I'll re try it. And thanks for the bump

 If it isn't that (power supply). Then it is the hard drive.

Neither one of these parts are hard to find or major expensive. If you can put it in yourself.

 we just had to do a factory reset on our computer because we had a virus that was making our computer shut down and then restart.
