Try this

Sounds like the power switch is busted

And by power switch I am thinking you mean Power Supply

Gateway MT6840 unexpectedly shut down and wouldn't


First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

Is there a fault?? All UL listed generators including Kohler are required to lockout on a fault on shut down. This really sounds like a problem with your 2-wire auto start connection between your automatic transfer switch and genset. RDT model automatic transfer switch it is the 2 middle wires on the green connector and terminals 3&4 in the generator. close to run and open to shut down. Any open at any time will cause the unit to shut down. The 12 will shut down instantly upon an open because your 5 minute cool down is built into the transfer switch.

The local municipal power supply cut on and off intermittently and several times browned out over the last week. the PC could only be restarted after unplugging for a while. Often this had to be repeated...


sometimes in side the power supply over time the parts go bad a little at a time. it will work as lone as you leave it on but if you turn in off the switch mode power supply will not restart due to the parts that go bad. replace the power supply and it should be ok. there could be other things but this is the most likely.

Come on, boots up, then shuts down 5 - 10 minutes later.


check your power options make sure you don't have hibernation enabled, its in the system control panel. try booting from a linux live cd like Ubuntu which you can download for free. If it runs fine under linux, its a windows problem, if it keeps shutting down its a hardware problem. Could be bad ram, or CPU overheating.

Toshiba Satellite A55-S306 doesn't come out of hybernation


Turn the PC on, when it is booting up, keep hitting "F8" until windows boot options come up, choose "Safe Mode" and then once it boots into safe mode fully, go to the start menu and choose shut down. After it shuts down, turn it back on and it should go back into normal mode. From now on, don't use Hibernate, its buggy and has been since XP.

what has happened is your hard drive as failed and that is why it shut down and then gave the unmountable boot volume. You could try repairing windows using your XP cd but it's a new hard drive i recon.
