Re: PC automatically shuts down

Hi pank, Take a look at the BIOS setups in these machines. Business HPs and Dells have a setting to allow automatic shutdown and startup based on time. Another explanation is timer software; all of the computers I manage run a software timer that shuts down automatically at night. You might also want to talk to your network administrator since there are lots of management tools that allow remote shutdown of computer. It could be something they?re doing on purpose ?.. There are lots of other possibilities but I would check these out first since they?re more likely. Let us know how things go and please don't forget to rate the posting.

Automatically Close Programs at Shutdown

When you shut down Windows, if you have any programs running you'll get a message box warning you that a program is still running. You then have to close the program and tell XP again to shut down. It's a fairly pointless warning—better yet would be if XP automatically killed the programs without issuing the warning. That way, you wouldn't get error messages and wouldn't have to close each individual application before shutting down your computer.
To have XP automatically close programs at shutdown, run the Registry Editor and go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop. Edit the AutoEndTasks key so that is has a value of 1. If the key doesn't exist, create it as a DWORD value and give it the value of 1. To disable it, either delete the key, or set the value to 0.

Hp invent repeating startup error

If it is showing a blue scree of death (BSOD) and shuts downbefore you can read the error message try this:
Turn the computer off, then turn it on and immediately start hitting the F8 keyrepeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Scroll down below Safe Mode and youwill see an option to Disable Automatic Restart. Select it and rebootyour machine. Next time it boots up you will be able to read the errormessage. You'll probably need a system disc or repair disc to fix theblue screen error message.

I have a HP Compaq DX2000MT computer. When I want to start up the pc, he gives 10 beeps and the following message : Chassis fan not functioning, check fan connections & call for service. Shutting...

Without the chassis fan the pc would overheat and fry so it's shut down. Do what the warning message says: open the case, clean the interior and check the wire connector of the fan. If the fan still doesn't turns then it has failed and it will have to be replaced - a new one costs$10 at every pc shop.
You will need the manuals for service and maintenance

When I shut down my computer, I think that it is shutting down completly. All lights are off indicating that it is shut down. Then a small blue window will appear and will say "Entering Power Safe Mode"....

If you are turning off your computer by pressing the front panel power button, it is probably just putting Windows to sleep but not shutting the computer off. If your computer has Windows Vista, the default is to hibernate and not shut down even if you shut down through Vista. The "power save" message you see is coming from the monitor, which is letting you know it isn't getting a signal from the computer anymore but the power is still on. Windows will start up again from sleep mode if someone or something moves the mouse or presses a key.

The solution is to make sure the computer is actually shut down. In Vista you can do this by clicking the arrow near the power icon on the Start menu. This gives you the option of shutting down instead of hibernating. In XP, shut the computer down using the start menu shutdown option instead of the computer power button. Then the power will shut down completely.

Could be a few different possibilities-
Power Supply failing
Overheating Issue

first thing i would do is to try booting the computer up into safe mode with networking. to do this:

Shut off your computer and turn it back on- immediately start pressing the F8 key repeatidly until you get an advance boot menu- then go to safe mode with networking and press enter on your keyboard- See if Windows operates normally while in safe mode- If so then issue is probably a Virus.
