computer keeps shutting off every five minutes or so


Computer may be shutting od due to following reasons:

Computer Virus
There are higher chances of a computer shutting down due to the interference of a computer virus. The virus gets into the computer and fiddles with crucial sections of the operating system, which may cause the system to shut down automatically. You need to install a good antivirus software and get the computer scanned thoroughly for any malware and viruses. Also see to it that the operating system and all hardware drivers are updated.

Power Supply
The computer power supply unit is an equipment that is installed in the cabinet to provide power to the system for operation. Your computer can shut down, if there is not enough power supplied to it for handling the programs running. If you are using the computer for running intensive software such as PC games, the system would require more power than what is actually available. Another reason can be overheating of the power supply. After the power supply is used for a substantial period of time, there is a possibility of dust getting collected inside it. And this may cause it to overheat, resulting in the shutdown of the desktop computer. If the power supply is at fault, you may need to get a new one installed.

Overheating of the Motherboard and the Processor
As with the case of dust getting collected in the power supply, the computer motherboard and the processor can also collect dust, which may be the reason for their overheating. This may also be one of the reasons why your computer keeps shutting down and restarting. You need to open the computer cabinet and clean the dust off the computer parts. The CPU board and the processor can also overheat because of many applications running. If this is the case, then it is suggested to keep the running of applications as less as possible or increase the size of Random Access Memory (RAM). Bad capacitors on the motherboard is also one of the reasons, why your computer keeps shutting down very often.

The 'Automatically Restart' Setting
If you are using Windows XP operating system, there is a setting that indicates the computer to reboot if it detects an error in the system's operation. In order to check if this is the problem, click on 'Start' and 'Control Panel', then select 'Performance and Maintenance'. Click on 'System', then the 'Advanced' option, and select 'Settings' from the 'Startup and Recovery' section. You will find an 'Automatically restart' option, which you need to uncheck for preventing the system from rebooting. Read more on computer keeps restarting on its own.

These were the possible reasons, why your computer keeps shutting down and rebooting. You also need to check if the power cables are properly connected to the cabinet and to the UPS, as loose connections can also be a reason for system shutdown. The most common cause of the computer getting shut down or restarted is due to overheating of the power supply and other internal computer parts.

my computer monitor keeps shutting off randomly for no reason. It isn't the sleep function, I've already checked that and it happens when you are in the middle of using the system. I am running XP


The monitor shuts off or the video card shuts off?

If it's the video card it's probably a heat or driver issue.

If it's the monitor it's probably a heat or ROM issue.

Anybody, please help! I need it! Sonicwall issues


There are many reasons for your problem, make sure you have the Computer and Register PC are in the switch section of the Sonicwall - not in the WAN port. The router should allow traffic to flow by default. Check the Operating system and turn off any firewalls, the router will take care of that.

check trans light comes on after a few blocks of driving


Go buy the repair manual for vehicle (about 20 bucks) AND a code reader.(between 50 and 300 bucks. Both specific to your vehicle AND vehicle year. Million reasons for check engine light - but that light is basically saying, "I'm seeing something wrong, so check my vehicle computer for what I'm seeing" and the fact that it goes away or may go away just says the problem may be intermittent or keeps being cleared for some reason, either the problem fixes itself or the computer clears code for some reason, probably the former.
