The temperature inside your machine does not mean that it is booting, it just means that your have power. Anyway, when a computer boots properly, it will not list all the hardware.

Try to boot in safe mode, see if you get a signal.

Immediately after the computer is powered on or restarted (usually after you hear your computer beep), tap the F8 key in 1 second intervals.

After your computer displays hardware information and runs a memory test, the Advanced Boot Options menu will appear.

Use the arrow keys to select Safe Mode or Safe Mode with Networking and press ENTER

I will be going offline in a couple of minutes and will not be able to continue this discussion for the next 10 hours.

If you get a signal in safe mode, we are on our way to a solution.

Catch you later.
