Why won't my computer turn on?

My computer started getting all kinds of weird letters and numbers going across the screen. I would have to restart computer to fix. Then after a few weeks it wouldn't turn on at all. The light on monitor comes on and the fan comes on but is really loud.I was told by mayer? to get some numbers off Pedestal so here they are... Ethernet ID 00112470C57C... SN# W843723RPP8
