How do you determine "that part" gets overheated? Have you measured the temperature?
well the temp above 50° and increasing to 60°
anyway the pc doesn't start there is no lights on the motherboard like there is no power

sometimes i think it's a psu problem

You can test the PSU with a small piece of wire check it out on the net. if your PSU is really old maybe its time for a new one.

No.
That merely shows that the PSU can sort of power itself.
Like if you get in the car and turn the key. The dashboard lights come on. Says nothing about the engine and transmission actually working.
Good to know thanks Ret. My PSU operated through the method I stated however I was still sure something was busted with it.

that tiny part of the motherboard called SUPER I/O this, the electricity went off and cmae back then the pc never started again it got shorted out
as soon as i plug the power cable to the power supply that tiny thing gets overheated (more then 50°)
so im buying a new motherboard
