    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.

My computer has been running fine for a long time now...all of a sudden it wont keep the time when i turn it off and now when i start the computer it doesnt boot....please helps


You should go replace the CMOS battery, its looks like a button cell flatten out. I don't know about your booting problem, but I think you should try reseating (taking out and putting in) the ram or the Memory Modules. If this doesn't work, you should try reseating the Video Card.

P5qc power failure


What you should try always, is to reset the BIOS by clearing the CMOS. On some motherboards, you can use jumpers instead of unplugging the power and taking the battery out. If it still turns on without you pressing the power button, you should look into your BIOS and see if you need to change some settings about A/C Power Loss in the Power section.

Hi...

The problem that you have are same in common, if your cd room will not boot you need to first boot your cd room, you just go to the BIOS to first boot your cd room,, when you turn on the computer you need to press the delete key (or F2) after that, use the arrow key to select, chose the boot priorities, then you need to first boot your cd room, after the cd room first boot, press F10 to save, the ok

Good luck !!!
