    My Emachines w3052 would shut down and beep. I pulled out the old PCI modem and it works fine now. I cant say if putting another PCI card in there would effect it that way again, but I will avoid that slot.

I don't know my computer shuts down automatically.

In order to advance on the resolution path, could you please check the following :

This problem could come from a power saving mode that we see more often these days.
You must ensure that there is any setting in the BIOS that could cause the machine to shutdown ? If you want to make sure it's comes from the BIOS or from the Operating System (I suppose you use Windows), I recommend you to boot a linux live CD on a usb stick or CD. My recommendation would go to download and burn the latest Kubuntu CD, then boot on it (without installing it of course), and wait for 2 hours to check if the computer did stop or not.

Beeps: deda, deda, deda, and RED led on motherboard flashes along with beeping. Sopmetimes happens if tower moved slightly, or may do so if left in idle mode, shuts down and starts the beeping. ...

This series of beeps tells us that your RAM is some-times not being seen by the computer system.

You need to remove the RAM modules and clean the gold finger connectors with tissue paper.

Clean out as much dust as you can with a vacuum cleaner, then reinsert the modules in the correct orientation.

Easy as they will only go in one way. There is a cut out on the RAM module that separates the gold finger connectors.

Kind Regards

Won't complete booting

Sounds like at the very least, the hard drive is. This is common when a file required by the OS is corrupted, and the OS tries to not damage data so it restarts or shuts down.
