If the computer shuts down with no warning then it could be your power supply is faulty, which explains it not turning on sometimes. Just check the back of the PC to make sure it is plugged in properly (TURN OFF ALL POWER TO THE PC BEFORE CHECKING). if this does not help, get it looked at by your local qualified computer technician if you don't know how to replace a power supply. Also, a connection to the motherboard to the Power button may have a fault somewhere, which also means take it in for a look if you don't know what to do. If it does give you warning with 'Windows is shutting down' it can be the following things.
1- Your power button on the PC is sticky and movement causes the computer to think you have pressed it and so it shuts down, which can also explain why it wont turn on all the time. Just use some household grease cutter and spray it on the outside of the button, turn off the power supply to th computer and press it in and out a few times to get it back to working order
2- A Virus is shutting your computer down on you, but this does not fully explain why it won't turn on but this could be an effect of the virus so use a virus checker to see if this is the case
3- Your computer system is getting too hot and usually a computer has setting which shuts it down before permanent damage happens. Check your PC fans to make sure they are running and feel around where your computer sits to see if its warm or hot and replace the fans or put your PC in a cooler environment

Hope This helps

My hp 1630n keeps shutting down for no apparent reason. sometimes it goes all day then shuts down, sometimes for 10 mins. it isnt running hot either. replaced power supply with one that is 400w and it...


This might be an indication that a hardware is failing. go to BIOS and leave it turned on, see if it will still shut down randomly. If it does, then it is definitely a hardware problem. If it still under warranty, call HP for support. You can also visit HP Support Website for more info.
If it is hardware problem, try isolating it by re-seating the parts which has an integrated chip like RAM, VIDEO CARD and CPU. If you have two sticks of RAM, try each one without the other and see which one is failing. You can also switch to the integrated video if you have one to test the graphics card. Make sure you have the proper knowledge on how to handle these parts as this might cause damage on the computer and electric shock.

Computer wont start and when it does it shuts itself down


Sound like a power overload system is kicking in, which means either a bad power supply or shorted circuit else where. Disconnect the DVD, CD, and any other devices to narrow it down. Try another known good power supply. If all this fails, it's going to be a problem with the motherboard, by elimination. There can be an intermittent capacitor or electronic heat sensitive part that's shutting down the computer. There are diagrams and videos on the net that can guide you through possible problems, in case you want to fix it yourself. Google "Intermittent Computer Startup" and you will find some good suggestions. One site is this one:

Good luck.

Computer keeps shutting off without warning


If the PC doesnt show the shutting down dialogue, then hardware proble if it does then its a software problem. Try to replace the powersupply, abnormal voltage sometimes causes this problem, memory and motherboard errors can cause your PC hangs up or blue screen but will not shut off.

Won't shut down completely


If shutting down XP takes what seems to be an inordinate amount of time, here are a couple of steps you can take to speed up the shutdown process:
  • Don't have XP clear your paging file at shutdown. For security reasons, you can have XP clear your paging file (pagefile.sys) of its contents whenever you shut down. Your paging file is used to store temporary files and data, but when your system shuts down, information stays in the file. Some people prefer to have the paging file cleared at shutdown because sensitive information such as unencrypted passwords sometimes ends up in the file. However, clearing the paging file can slow shutdown times significantly, so if extreme security isn't a high priority, you might not want to clear it. To shut down XP without clearing your paging file, run the Registry Editor (click Start > Run, then type regedit in the Run box) and go to:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management

  • Change the value of ClearPageFileAtShutdown to 0. Close the Registry, and restart your computer. Whenever you turn off XP from now on, the paging file won't be cleared, and you should be able to shut down more quickly.

    Note: Please be careful when editing the Registry; you can do a lot of damage here. Don't change or delete anything unless you know exactly what it is.

My laptop won't shut down properly!


Is it possible that you have changed the settings of what buttons do what on your system? E.g. you could have changed the power button to "switch user" instead of "shut down", to check this (in XP) go to "Power Options" (in Control Panel" and then click on the "Advanced tab" at the top, then select "Shut down" from the drop down menu at the bottom of the window.

If this is already set to shut down then maybe you could do a system restore in case another setting has been changed, restore it to before the PC started doing this.

Alternatively try actually choosing "Turn off Computer" from the Log On screen (press Ctrl + L to get to this screen, or choose switch user/log off). If you are using Vista I beleive that there is a shut-down option from the Log In Page there (which again you can access by pressing Ctrl + L on the keyboard.

Hope this helps!

Emachine shut down


No, it's just the USB ports that are still being powered.
Totally normal in most new computers. Same thing with the PS2 ports.
There are jumpers on the motherboard that can change this if you really want. It's designed like that to keep things like you have powered for when you do turn it on and need them.
