Probably overheating and thermal protection is kicking in. Get some compressed air and blow out all the vents.

Next time it is on, listen to see if you can hear the fan(s) running. If you never hear a fan, then that is your problem.

Hello, my emachines e4259 shutts down after boot up., i tried to install another version of vista but itts still stutting down in install program. what can it be?


If it is physically shutting off (like someone yanked the power cord) than it is a power supply

If the computers screen goes black, but the computer still runs, it could be RAM or a motherboard failure

Hi,

I suggest try to check these things on your machine.

->Check if the machine is Overheating.
->Check which part of the machine is Overheating.
->See if the Fan of the machine is Running(Feel if the air vent of the machine)

Cause of Automatic Shutdown:
-Memory
-Hard Drive
-Fan is not working

Most likely those are the cause of the machine keeps on shutting down unexpectedly.

Computer keeps freezing, will not control alt delete. Have to shut down manually, but only to freeze again.


sounds like you have a virus boot your pc in safe mode to do this press f8 on your keyboard after the first startup screen you should get a screen up with boot options choose safe mode let your computer start up then run your antivirus program when finished reboot computer hopefully this will solve your problem

Emachines w2828 keeps shutting down reboot/Screen Freeze


I dont thing this is a virus problem but a heat problem. if you dont mind getting inside the box see how clean it is and put your hand on the power box case .. then unplug all the hardware except the mother board then turn the unit on, if it goes on then plug 1 hardware at a time.

Lately, my laptop (Winbook) has been overheating and shutting down. Any ideas?


3 possible causes for this:
  1. Bad Power Supply....heating up and shutting down
  2. Bad Motherboard...heats up and freezes
  3. Bad Heatsink/processor....fan/heatsink no longer keeping processor cool enough to operate shutting your machine down
If when the laptop overheats, it just shuts down and doesn't freeze or lock up, it's most likely the Power Supply. If it just freezes/locks up, its much more likely that the problem lies with the motherboard. Hope this helps with your laptop problem. Best of luck.

Mouse freezes & Hard drive LED indicator remains 'ON' all the time.


You could be running too many programs all at once.

Have you done a CTRL ALT DEL to bring up the task manager?

Check the "Performance" tab. If the CPU is at 90 to 100 %, for a long time, and the notebook is offline, then u could have a virus that is attempting to get on the internet and therefore slowing you down.

Since ur notebook is new, Have you set up all the programs to NOT check for automatic updates in all their options areas?

Lots of times all the major softwares are built in with default options to check for updates and auto install those.

So if you could look for those too and uncheck them...then reboot. You should see a performance difference.
