    Mine is an HP Pavilion. Does the same thing, runs for 5 seconds, turns itself off. After many attempts (maybe 20), it will finally stay on. Replaced power supply - no help.

    Only solution so far is, don't turn it off.

    when booting the system I
    get three short beeps ? Anyone

    I have the same problem. The problem just kept getting worse and now the Computer turns itself off before starting up properly. If I disconnect the hard drive the computer starts up fine and stays on - monitor works OK, drives work OK too. As soon as I reconnect the hard drive the computer shuts down again.

Hey! i had the same problem after i took the computer apart for a clean!!! What happened is that when i took the heatsink off the cpu, the thermal paste had fallen apart a little and i put it back on.... to find computer booting up for about 3 seconds then turning off. i think that when you fire the comp up it turns on the cpu causing it to overheat and shut itself off, just cleaned off old paste and put on some new paste and it fired up! hope this helps you! sorry bout the slight delay!

Sounds like a hardware failure. Possilbly the motherboard, more than likely, the power supply.
But then - maybe neither.
Shut it off completely, once you restart, start hitting the F8 key ( once a second ) until you see the " Safe Mode" choices screen. Drop down and select the " Last known Good Configuration" option and hit enter.
If this doesnt work, try the same proceedures ( restart - F8 ) but this time select safe mode - at the top of the list.
If you sucessfully boot in safe mode, you have a system file problem that could be virus related, file table corruptions or registry problems or all combined.

EMachines eMD620 suddenly shutdown and not boot anymore


When this happened was the laptop overly hot? If the laptop's head got too high it could have shutdown to protect itself. It wouldn't boot until the heat had disparate. Sit you laptop aside for about 30 minutes and see if it will boot then. If it does you might want to check out a cool mat.

This desktop dell vostro turns itself on and off without the button being pushed. sometimes it makes it to windows, and seems to run just fine, then it goes to shutdown by itself... then turns itself back...


Well in the system Bios or setup there are options where you can have the computer turn itself on automatically at a certain time. However, the fact that yours is turning itself on and off seems to indicate that it is either over heating or it is running into an issue when trying to boot and it keeps recycling the boot process. There is an option that you can set that will turn off automatic restart on boot. Turn off the computer and then turn it on and start hitting F8 repeatedly until you see Safe Mode as an option. Scroll down through the options and you will probably see an option that lets you stop automatic restart on boot, and take it if it is there. This will allow you to actually see the error message that is causing your computer to reboot itself.

My laptop wont turn on and yet its fully charge. The power light keeps on blinking with orange and when i push the start button, it turns green and when i stop pushing, it turns orange again-blinking.


Hi.

This sounds like there is a problem with the battery.
Remove the AC mains power and take out the battery from the laptop. Plug AC power back in and try booting the laptop up.
If it boots up let it boot into Windows/linux and then shut the computer down as normal. Remove AC power and re-insert the battery. Plug AC back in and power it up, see if it does the same thing. If it does the same thing the battery is faulty. If it boots up with the battery in then there was a glitch.

Hi, there i own dell latitude d620 when i press the power button it appear led power light and not boot, and it off itself why is this? please help me....


Remove the Battery then clean the metal contacts on the Battery and in the battery compartment then press and hold the power button on the Computer for 30 seconds.
Next, reinsert the Battery and try to turn ON the Computer. If the Computer keeps turning off then connect the AC adaptor to the Computer then try to turn it ON.
If the Computer keeps turning off automatically even when the AC adaptor is connected to it then the issue is with the power supply unit and requires to be replaced.

Beeps 2 times & a warbling noise when trying to boot up - unplugging power lead & pressing ON/Off button & reconnecting power lead starts up OK - but it can be OK for several days & then repeats the p


The Cause of Problem:

The Power Buttons electrical circle sometimes just braked it by one of sensors and the result is the 2 beeps and Power Supply is in protected mode error.

The whole computer is turn off but the power button is turn on and this is the nub of the matter. Because if you want turn on the computer you can't because already turn on but just the Power button and you can't do anything.

The solution:
You need just change the Power Supply and don't do anything just the power cable put into the Power Supply after turn off computer.
Finaly change back the Power Supply.

HL-1250 shuts down by itself


Sounds as if this is an overheat or a short circuit. you may require a new laser engine or power supply. Disconnect the laser motor from the power supply and them turn it on. If your led's stay on, it's the laser engine. If not, it's the power supply.

turn power off... turn power on, right after turn on, keep tapping F8 till a boot screen shows up. then select safe mode.
after you boot up into windows, change the setting.
if it won't let you then you need to go into device manager and uninstall the display adapter. then restart computer.
the display adapter should auto install itself to default 800x600 or 1024x768.
