    Unit will power up for a few seconds then shuts itself off. If you pull out on the power button it may stay on a little longer, but when you let go it turns itself off.

Hiya

this cud be many causes, a corrupt driver or overheating
try booting into safe mode to find out if it is a driver or software issue, if it does not then i wud suggest checking your cpu fan is working as you say it shuts itself off.....as new cpu's have a thermal protection built into them to stop the from cooking.....

let me know if you have any joy

Starts. & shut down immediatly


Rootkit and boot viruses do this.best solution is to try safe mode...if it still restarts then you need to either piggyback the drive onto another machine and run several antivirus boot kit virus checks.....tdskiller...malwarebytes....kapersky rescue disk....to name a few....if yiu can't remove hdd and you are able to download hirens boot disk 15.2 and put it on a usb stick you can setup the boot sequence in the bios to run the usb first...thus will install a temporary copy of windows Xp onto the computers ram.this bypasses the boot sequence of an infected computer.then run combifix.
you can also download combo fix from bleepingcomputer.com
This is a complete package that runs rootkit checks and cleans out most of the things that cause boot loops.good luck.

Ho 6500 f pavilion desktop won't boot up windows


Computer does not boot up The problem maybe the RAM, it could be faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you. Just like you sometimes need a mechanic to repair your car, sometimes you do need a technician to diagnose and identify the fault or faults on your computer. Not only does a good service technican have the experience to deal with this type of problem, they also have the equipment that allows them to look at things the average computer user can't see, and he has a collection of replacement parts that can be used to quickly test individual components on your computer.

How do i turn off safe mode


Most computers when you boot it up give the option of "Boot Menu" upon the first few seconds of powering the machine on. Look at the screen and see if it reads Press F1 or F2 for Boot Menu. From there you can toggle off the safe mode option. Sometimes it's the delete key or alt key for some other computer providers as well.

Hope this helps,

Marty

My Dell Dimension begins to boot then sits there as if asleep


It sounds like it's probably the power supply. Computers require more power to boot up than they do to keep running, so if it's fine once it gets going, the power supply may just be dying. If you have a multimeter and know what you're doing, you can test the power supply connectors to see if any of them (especially the ones leading to the motherboard) are not giving the proper voltages.

How old is the computer?

My computer won't load. It's asking me to insert the windows vista installation disc. Under that, it says: "File:\windows\system32\winload.exe status:0xc000000f" please help me!


You may need to change the boot order in your bios so it starts the CD drive first. You will need to use your manual to do this because there are different bios's. When Vista boots hit repair and it should repair it. Are you, or, were you dual booting your computer with Linux or XP? This can sometimes cause that error.

Dell Dimension 2400 Freezes frequently


check inside the case of the computer to make sure that the interface cable between the hard drive and the motherboard are fully connected. Also check to see if the RAM modules are fully inserted into their slots. If not, they try removing them one by one, until the computer starts up faster. If this doesn't fix it, then try a new hard drive, and interface cable.
