Ibm netvista shuts down on start up

Elderly friend has a IBM net vista running windows 2000 pro. It worked great until a week ago. It began to power off and shut down just as windows going to load. I went into the set up and changed nothing, I turned it on and it worked great. She turned it off that same night, and the pc just turns off. Fan stops two seconds later it shuts off. I tried to boot from windows xp disk and when it says press any key to boot from disk, it won't recognize keystrokes and tries to load windows, it shuts down. When I go into set up I can't select anything, its like there is no keyboard plugged in. Please help! She's a grandmother with a grandchild starting school this week, and they are broke!

1. if possible check and see how dusty the system is inside.. used compressed air cans to dust it off.. don't touch any components... watch esd so ground yourself while you're at it
then test
2. you're power supply may be dying: ground yourself to the same ground as the computer (watch for esd) and replace the powersupply.
then test.
the keyboard or controller may be damaged, check for resource conflicts in your bios related with keyboard (make sure no other items are using the same irq's.. check plugs, test with other key board.. replaced motherboard.
random shut down could also mean that the cpu is overheating.. make sure the cpu fan is undusted and working.

Anybody know how to enable the AGP slot on an IBM NetVista 8305? Thanks.


1.
Shut down your computer and reboot to the BIOS. Reach the BIOS by pressing the Access IBM button on your keyboard or by pressing the F11 key.
2.
Use the arrow keys to scroll though the options to locate the video VGA graphic chip set. Follow the onscreen instructions to save the new BIOS settings.
3.
Turn off the machine after the BIOS settings have been saved. Unplug the power cord from the electrical socket.
4.
Open the side access panel of the Net Vista. On some models the panel will slide off; on others you may have to loosen the two thumbscrews holding it in place. If you have a desktop configuration instead of a tower, slide the top cover off the machine.
5.
Remove the existing AGP graphics card from the machine. You may need to use a screwdriver to remove the screw holding the card in place.
6.
Locate the proper slot for the new card. The new card may use the same AGP slot or use a PCI slot. If necessary, remove the dust cover for the selected slot with a screwdriver.
7.
Slide the new card into the slot. Screw the holding screw into place if the card requires one.
8.
Plug your monitor into the connection on the card. Plug the machine into the power source and turn the Net Vista on. Follow the onscreen instructions for installing the proper drivers if needed by your operating system. Replace the side panel when everything is working properly

Please rate me if this solution works for you

Thanks......Have a great time.

Windows XP will not shut down.


I don't know if you've tried this yet,but here it is just in case.



Click Start, and then click Control Panel > Performance and Maintenance>Power Options>In the Power Options Properties dialog box, on the Power Schemes tab, click the Power schemes drop-down list and select the power scheme that most closely matches how you use your computer.
adjust the System standby and System hibernates settings if you are not happy with the default selection. On the Advanced tab, you can adjust the default behavior of the power buttons on your computer. Click Apply>OK

I have netvista 6578rbg, it can boot from the hard disk


Hi lyonson, I gather at one time the drive did function with Vista? IBM has some fix on their web site. Click this link below.

http://www.ibm.com/search/?v=14&en=utf&lang=en&cc=us&hpp=10&catx=Y1zkzPzk6z93z46zP7&q=netvista+6578rbg&cp=&lv=c&cat=k6&x=12&y=10
Even if one of these fix's does not match your exact model no# . Try one that is close. If it does not help call IBM. I assure you it is not your PC but Vista. (There has been & will continue to be more down time with MS's Vista than any other previous version of windows to date). If non of IBM's files listed help you, please call IBM from this link. http://www-304.ibm.com/jct03004c/support/operations/us/en/contracts?cm_re=masthead-_-myibm-_-cs-contracts

I wish I could help more but other suggestions involve erasing the drive & that's not a good idea if you have data on it.
I would appreciate it if IBM solves this issue or one of the firmware’s fix your issue & you post the results. I’d call IBM my self if I had all needed information written on the NetVista PC.

Good Luck!
