Re: Turn off with in 1 min.
That is most likely the proccessor overheating and shutting down.
Remove the processor's heatsink and fan, clean off all the old thermal paste with alchohol and a cotton swab, you can use a piece of plastic like an old credit card to remove any stubbon thermal paste.
Reapply the thermal paste (about the size of a grain of rice is sufficient) and reattach the heatsink and fan then start the machine up again.

Hello jaysmith362, Your computer problem has 3 different cause: 1. VGA cable is not plug-in properly into the computer 2. Your System memory is not properly inserted. 3. BIOS problem
To solve your problem it. 1. Please ensure that your VGA is properly inserted into your VGA port of the computer. Or if you got an Videocard see to it that it is plug-in to your videocard. 2. You have to remove your system memory then return it properly into your memory slot. 3. Or by BIOS resetting, in your motherboard you will see an CMOS reset in it, try to remove the jumper then insert it in the other portion of it (it always has an 3 pins or 4 pins in the BIOS reset, if the BIOS jumper is located in the 1 and 2 pins try to insert it in the 3 and 4 pins). then restart your computer then turn it off after 3 seconds. Then bring it back the BIOS jumper into normal that is 1 and 2 pins.
I hope it will solve your problem Thanks for using FIXYA...;-)
Hi, we have ways why computer restart, 1. the power supply can not drive it, so replace your power supply, good if you have voltage regulator. 2. Swap memory chips from good one.3. Check if capacitor in *********** board is bloated.
The UPS may not be sufficiently stable on power-on to run a PC immediately.
Try going into the BIOS setup after the restart and look for the option that has the computer "Start up automatically after power failure." Turn this off. That will take care of problem 1.
If this also takes care of problem 2, you may want to check whether the UPS has a problem. Start by plugging a couple of lamps with 100 Watt bulbs into the UPS outlets instead of the computer. Turn it on - the lamps should behave normally, not flicker or change brightness. With the lamps and UPS still on, unplug the UPS. The lamps should stay on with little or no change, and the battery warning light should not come on right away. If the UPS fails this test, its battery may need to be replaced or it has a regulator problem.
Turn the computer off.
Turn the computer on.
Wait a minute or two -- it may "time-out" and reset it to the "slowest" speed.
If that fails, look closely at the motherboard,
or read the manual for the motherboard, to find a "clear BIOS" jumper.
Turn the computer off. Move the jumper from "1-2" to "2-3".
Wait a few seconds. Move the jumper back to "1-2".
Turn the computer on, with the "default" settings.
I would suggest that you do a factory reset on your mobo. To do it, here are the steps you can follow.
1. make sure that computer is OFF and unplugged from the wall 2. locate the 3-pin jumper on the mobo that is near the cmos battery 3. once located, remove the cmos battery 4. then from the 3-pin jumper, if the jumper is connected to pins 1-2, switch it over to pins 2-3 5. return the cmos battery back 6. plug the computer back then turn it ON 7. you will probably get an option to reset or restore settings back to factory, it that's the case, continue with it 8. after doing so, turn the computer OFF again and unplug it 9 remove cmos battery then return the jumper to it's original position 10. put in the battery back then turn the computer on again 11. go to the bios and set it back to the setting that you have set it before 12. check and see if problem has been resolved
* I would suggest getting a new cmos battery if it's already old
