On start up, hit F12
When the menu for boot options comes up, choose IDE or Hard Drive diagnostics.
I think you'll find you have a bad hard drive.
I have 640 Dell workstations, and I have seen this a number of times.

My sisters A205-S5804 laptop keeps shutting down but only when it's processing files..If it's idle it sits there for hours


it may be overheating, when it processes files the proc gets hot i suggest a cooling pad of some type see if that helps, when it shuts down, is it hot? are you getting any messages or does it just shut down. try this: hit windows key +R and when the box pops up type eventvwr and check the system logs and see if it tells you why it's shutting down. if it's heat related it should say. let me know if you need any help

Power off issue for GX280


just run scandisk for your windows driver and check for any errors.

i once got this problem i just ran scandisk and some errors are found in the filesystem and they were removed
after that i have no prob shutting down my pc.

and if possible try to run a virus scan like avast or avg. etc.., this could take long if you have a monster harddrive and data.

hope this helps..

Hp dv9000 will not shut down or burna disc correctly


What error message is being 'thrown'?
If your system boots and runs take a look at the "Event Logs" on your system. They can reveal a lot of information.

Have you added any new software to your system? Have you had any "Automatic Updates"downloaded and installed? WIN XP SP3 has been known to cause a few problems. Try un-installing WIN XP SP3 and see if this helps.

Do you have a virus program and an anti-spyware program? If you do update them and run them. Let me know what happens. Binary Bob

Its keep saying advrcntr.2dll,which was not found on this system.


Ok well hopefully this should solve you problem:

Download the .dll file from here

Extract it to (im not too sure so do them all)

C:\Windows\System

C:\Windows\System32

C:\Windows

Reboot your computer

then either try the application again or get another copy of it

Goodluck i hope this solves your problem

Hi, it sound to me like you have a heat problem.

Check your heatsink fan on the processor and also clean out all dust from the haetsink and motherboard.
