What symptoms are you getting? Does the computer start at all? Any fans/lights? Anything on the screen? You have to be more specific to be able to track down the part that's failed, but as a general rule it's anything with a fan or heatsink.

Computers are designed to be running 24/7 so 10 hours should not cause a problem. You need to occasionally check for dust build-up within the case - blow it away with compressed air. If it still gets hot then look at replacing/adding fans.

The computer no longer can turn on. Also it is a really small sized one.

It would help to know the make/model of the computer & what you mean by having it "opened for too long"?

Well I opened the computer for straight 18 hours and suddenly it shut down and when I press open button again it won't open it is still in the same condition.
