How to repair start-up on my computer
How long is shortly? If it runs and brings up the Windows Desktop and
you are allowed to work for 10 minutes or longer then it shuts down,
most likely the laptop is overheating. One way to tell if it is
overheating is to immediately try to turn it back on after it shuts off.
If it will not boot back up, it's overheating. If you let it sit and
cool off for a while, then try to boot it back up and it does it
successfully, it's overheating.Causes of Overheating:1) Dust all inside
the computer. Fans clogged with dust, dust around the vents.2) Fan not
working 3) The Thermal Past around the CPU has dried up or is too thin
the keep the unit cool.When you plug in the power cord is there any
lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC
Adapter of thepower cord?
When you press the power button do you
hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any
beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the
light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the
laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not
showing for some reason.
Beep tones and blinking lights tells the
technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting.
Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking
