Try starting it in Safe Mode, by pressing F8 when the computer boots and selecting start in Safe Mode. If this lets you log in without shutting down then it is a problem than can be fixed relatively easily. Everything will appear bigger on the screen when it is in Safe Mode don't worry about that for now.

If you have installed any new hardware recently that may be affecting your system then uninstall it while you are in safe mode by going to Control Panel>system>device manager and right click on the hardware that you installed and uninstall it. Reboot the system and see if this solves your problem. If not reboot the system in Safe mode again as explained in the first paragraph then go to Start>programs>accessories>system tools>system restore and choose a date when you know that your system was working with no problems and press restore. Once the computer has restored it will reboot. If asked choose start windows normally.

I hope this helps you resolve your problem.

Dear Friend,

HP Pavillions are not good... Buy a new Laptop that dosnt use Nvidia graphics card.

The problem resides in the graphics card Heating up to madness.
If you know how to open your Laptop, Dissassemble it and remove the processor. Heat up the Graphics card with a hair blower for 5 to 10 minutes. put the hair dryer about 1 cm distant to the graphics card.
After that - let it cool and make sure you put back everything correctly, screw it up and Voila...
Your laptop is new again..

Toshiba A135-S4527 will not automatically shut down


If you truly believe the problem happened right after installing the new mouse, then you should start by uninstalling the software for it. Go to Control Panel -> Software -> Uninstall. If this fails, you can use the System Restore utility to rollback the Windows registry to a time before you first installed the new mouse software. Have you tried to unplug the mouse and not use it, atleast on the attempted shutdown process?

My laptop turns itself of after 8 minutes - every time i turn my laptop on it lasts for about 8 minutes then turns itself off automatically how do i stop this? My HP laptop keeps shutting itself off after...


Sounds like something to do with a power saving feature either from HP itself or from Windows. It could also be that for some reason your computer is overheating, which it than shuts itself off to protect the processor. I would try playing with your power saving features, and cleaning out the fans.

IDIOT LIGHTS COME ON WHEN DRIVING


The ignition switch is going bad. What is happening is when your driving the switch is actually shutting off and turning back on. Try shutting it off yourself and see if it simulates your problem. These switches are a common problem. After the switch starts to get worse you will start haveing problems getting it started. The switch will allow to crank the motor but it will not turn on the vehicle. You will notice that while you are cranking you have no idiot lights on the dash when it does not start. Please let me know what you find or give me more info to help you further.

Window shut down automatically and restart, then shut down again... It happened after a window update yesterday lunch time.


Recovery SettingsOne of the things that is quite different about Windows XP compared to Windows 9x (9x is shorthand for Windows 95, Windows 98, and Windows Me in all their various versions), is that one can control how it responds to certain critical errors—those that cause the infamous Blue Screen of Death (BSOD). In Windows XP, the default setting is for the computer to reboot automatically when a fatal error occurs. If that fatal error only occurs when you're shutting down, the system reboots automatically.
If you haven't changed any of the system failure settings, you should be able to see the error by looking in the Event Log. But a better long-term solution is to turn off the automatic reboot so you can actually see the error when it happens—chances are it will tell you enough about itself to let you troubleshoot further. To change the recovery settings to disable automatic rebooting:
1.
Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
2.
Click the Advanced tab.
3.
Under Startup and Recovery, click Settings to open the Startup and Recovery dialog box.
4.
Clear the Automatically restart check box, and click OK the necessary number of times.
5.
Restart your computer for the settings to take effect.
Now when you go to shut down and a fatal error occurs, you'll at least see it and it won't cause an automatic reboot. You still have to sort out what's causing the problem, but that gets us to the next section quite nicely.
