Sounds like the power supply in the computer is shot, may need to replace it. They are cheap now to replace, it is a do-it-yourself job. Go on google and search for "Power Supply Replacement Directions".

My e machine computer will just shut off after 5 or 10 min.,


I had an Emachines W3609 that did the same thing, I changed the 350-watt power supply with a 550-watt and it still shut off, even using the newer one. I thought just the first one was bad but I guess not. It had more than enough power to power it up but nothing. And it used to randomly restart at times and then just shut off. Try and get a new hard drive maybe that will help. Good luck!

Message keeps popplng up about low battery and then shuts off..am i suppose to get new battery and if where..thank you


Hello.

Hello.

The most common reasons for power issues are the battery, power jack and power adapter/cord.

Power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty.

Where to purchase a new battery depends on your particular location.

You can order a new battery through your laptop's manufacturer or a local computer store or computer supplier.

Hope this helps.

My inspiron 1000 laptop from dell won't turn on. The adapter cord is not getting hot. I was defragging the computer when it shut off. Is this the adapter cord?


Hello there:
ok the first thing that i would suggest is to remove the battery and unplug the power cord from the computer
now check the area that the battery connects to and get a q-tip and some rubbing alcohol and clean the contact areas where the battery connects to the computer at really good and let dry
next if the computer has a reset hole on the back of it use a toothpick or somthing small and press in on the reset for 2 min and than release than press and hold in on the computers power on button for one minute and release now plug in only the power cord and turn on the computer and it should now start
than after it does put the battery in and let charge for a min of 30 min
than you should be ok from there ok
Please feel free to post a comment to me if you still have problems ok
Hope all of this is very helpful for you
Best regards Michael

Have a Gateway Laptop Computer Model #MT6708. Previously computer had blank screen and no power. Currently purchased new battery and power cord. Computer now operating screen and power is on. However, when...


First thing check that the battery charge light is on when the battery and the charger are connected.
If it is it indicates that the power supply is charging the battery,
If it isnt it may indicate a fault with the battery or that the charger is not compatable with the laptop or that there is a fault with the charger.
If the battery is charging then try running the laptop on battery only without the charger and on charger only without the battery.
This will eliminate which one is faulty.

You mentioned that if you wiggle the cord then the light comes on again.
Check to see if the charger end plug is lose or the actual port on the laptop is lose.
If the charger plug is lose then return to seller and make sure they gave you the correct charger. if the actual port on laptop is lose then perhaps u got a bad connection and you need electrician or local laptop technician to open it up and solder properly on motherboard.

Let me know how it goes.

Installed new 2 speed motor olny low works


IF the filter is clean, then your problem is electrical. First make sure you are not using an extenesion cord. These pumps do not work well with a cord over 6ft long. Then make sure that the pump is on a dedicated outlet. No Microwaves, computers competing for power. Most likely the pump is not able to draw enough power and is shutting off.

Not powering on


In all actuality, it shouldn't make a difference. But there are select cords out there that may have a short or deliver the wrong voltage. That is why in the Sony warranty it says that the warranty is void if you use a cable thatisn't approved by Sony for use with the PS3.

So does the red standby light come on when you power on the toggle switch in the back?? If not then it is the power supply. You will need a new power supply installed.
If it does the old Green/Yellow/flashing Red when you push the front power button, the you have some motherboard problems and need to call Sony or sell it and get a new one, or find the problem and fix it.
Hope this helps. Good luck and happy gaming!!
