My pc runs perfect for The first 10 minutes

So for 2 months ago i was at my friends house with my pc but after 10 minutes of being started it began to lag so i couldnt even open google chrome (it was suddenly super laggy)
So when i got home my brother tried to fix it and he did, but recently i was at my friends house again with my pc, and it wouldnt work. And i really do not understand why. And my brother cant remember how he fixed it. And i do not think it has anything to do with the Cpu or the Gpu nor the hdd. But i dont know is it possible a cable in the pc could be loose?. My gpu is a gtx 960 turboclocked with 4 gb and my cpu is a I5 6600k 2.4ghz. I remember sligthly that my brother told me that he switched out a cable and suddenly it worked but neither me or him can remember what we did. Please help and thanks. Have a great day

That's a typical heat sign.

"wouldn't work" is not the same as "10 minutes". You have a fine heat clue so time to redo all your heatsink work and make sure all fans work like new.

You need to add details.

Exact make, model number, OS etc. Otherwise only guesses will come your way.
