It is often caused by a hardware failure. The first thing to do is make sure you do not have any USB memory stick type devices plugged in. Computers don't like them plugged in while starting. If still no good, unplug all of the devices attached except for the monitor. By this I mean the keyboard, mouse, ANY USB DEVICES/ but leave the monitor plugged in. Try starting again. If it boots into windows normally, press the power button on the computer to make it shut down again, then plug each thing in one by one and repeat to see which is holding it up. If it still won't get past the BIOS screen, you have an internal problem in the computer box itself. Hope this helps

It keeps shutting itself off ?


When does it shut itself off? Is this happening time you press the power button and during the boot cycle it shuts off without completing the boot to windows? If it shuts down after you've worked on it for a while it could be that it is running hot. If you let it sit a while to cool off then press the power button, if it completes the boot cycle and allows you to work it is definitely running hot. Normally when they run hot if you immediately try to reboot, it will fail. If you let it cool off it will boot successfully. Computers run hot because of a fan not working, dust clogging the fan vents or the Thermal Paste around the CPU and Heat Sink has become hard or too thin to keep the unit cool. If it's not running hot you might have a power supply or motherboard issue. Try removing the power cord and press and hold the Power Button for 30 seconds to release any Static Buildup. Then plug the power cord back in and try to reboot.

My Gateway GT4010 PC keeps rebooting itself before


Try replacing the hard drive cable. If that doesn't fix the problem, then you may have bad RAM, bad motherboard or a bad power supply. Sounds like a hardware issue and not software. try booting your computer in safe mode since it doesn't load all the device drivers. If it still reboots then you'll have to keep swapping parts and booting up the computer to isolate the problem.

Emachines w2828 keeps shutting down reboot/Screen Freeze


I dont thing this is a virus problem but a heat problem. if you dont mind getting inside the box see how clean it is and put your hand on the power box case .. then unplug all the hardware except the mother board then turn the unit on, if it goes on then plug 1 hardware at a time.
