My hp computer shuts down unexpectedly - Computers & Internet

    my HP dc5000 shuts down unexpectantly. At times this will occur after running for about 10mins and other times it will shut down immediately after boot-up. Recently had new RAM installed when it would not power-up at all, it would just flash lights and beep. The new RAM fixed that problem, but it has been shutting down, as if someone cut the power off, on its own ever since. Could it be the RAM causing this?

The most common reason behind this type of behavior is a failing hard drive. When a Hard drive is failing it causes corruption in the filing system used by your operating system. if this is the case, its is recommended that you backup all your data as soon as possible.

Though this is the most common reason, by no means is this the only reason. It could be caused by the following:

  • Corrupt Operating System
  • Bad RAM
  • Bad Power Supply
  • Case Short
These are just a few of a possibilities. You will have to be a little more specific as to its behavior before and/or after your unit unexpectedly turns off.

Gateway MT6840 unexpectedly shut down and wouldn't


First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

Windows keeps shutting down unexpectedly


Your computer is overheating, it is shutting itself down to prevent damage to the internal components.

Your computer should be serviced by a computer technician. He/she will clean the components and chassis of dust. This will increase airflow over the components, meaning your system will be stable and will not shut down unexpectedly.

Take care!

My HP DC 5800 PC, Shut down unexpectedly. It is not happen regulerly. Some times it happen twice a day and some times it happen once a month. My operating system is Vista business.


Most unexpected shut downs like this are caused by over heating. Is the computer in a closed in space? If so try moving it to where it has plenty of room to breath. If this does not help I would suggest trying to replace the current fans to be sure that they are in working order.
