Without having the specs on the motherboard or knowing how old it is, it's difficult to say if it is beyond repair. Although my experience with computers shutting down that quickly while attempting to boot have been a problem related to processor overheating. Processors get very hot within seconds of powering on. If the processor cooling fan or the thermal paste is not working as intended the system will shut down quickly. You may want to check those two possibilities before purchasing a new motherboard.

I have a Gigabyte EX38 DS4 motherboard. A few months ago the power light light would blink after I shut windows down and it wouldn't turn on again. If I unplugged the computer for a while it would stop...


As you may already know, your computer will shut down after power on if if the power supply does not receive a power good signal from the motherboard. Since you already tested the PSU in another computer, and you know the PSU is good, either you have a bad mobo or some device connected to the power supply is draining excessive power from the PSU and causing it to shut down.

Try removing the 4 pin pin power plugs from ALL devices, such as the floppy drive, CD drives etc.
If the system stays on when you power up, then you can isolate the faulty device by re-connecting them one-by-one. If the system still shuts down your Mobo or CPU is bad and you might want to take it to a PC technician to determine if it's worth fixing.

Asus P5KC motherboard problem ???


Does your system give off any kind of beep or beeps before its shuts down? from what it sounds like, you might have a short some where , a bad mobo or bad cpu. Try using another cpu on the mobo and see what it does.

Stand by


Standby does not turn off the computer. It reduces power consumption but does not turn the CPU off or the power supply. Because the cpu is still on the cooling fan stays on to cool it. If you want it to turn the fan off or be silent I suggest using hibernate or shutting it down completely.

Computer shuts down but does not turn off


Mchem, you actually have 2 separate issues going on there.
  • Open control panel > open the system control panel
  • in the system properties, click on the advanced tab
  • in the startup and recovery section, click the settings button
  • In the startup and recovery dialog box, under system failure, remove the check from the automatically restart option
  • click ok
  • click ok

  • Open control panel > open power options
  • in the power options properties, select the advanced tab,
  • in the power buttons section,
  • When I press the power button on my computer: click on the drop down menu and select the shut down option
  • click ok
Sebastien123, you only need to run the first part of this solution.
