My Lenovo Yoga tab 3 keeps shutting off and going back to the locked homescreen. It does it all the time, i cant really do anything on it w/o it shutting off. Any awnser?


Does it shut down, then restart? Or does it go back to locked screen but stays powered up?

If it shuts down, the processor could be over-heating. This means cooling fan might be broken or running too slow.
If it just restarts, then check your settings in the 'power-saving' section, assuming your're on Windows OS.

Computer keeps shutting off every five minutes or so


Computer may be shutting od due to following reasons:

Computer Virus
There are higher chances of a computer shutting down due to the interference of a computer virus. The virus gets into the computer and fiddles with crucial sections of the operating system, which may cause the system to shut down automatically. You need to install a good antivirus software and get the computer scanned thoroughly for any malware and viruses. Also see to it that the operating system and all hardware drivers are updated.

Power Supply
The computer power supply unit is an equipment that is installed in the cabinet to provide power to the system for operation. Your computer can shut down, if there is not enough power supplied to it for handling the programs running. If you are using the computer for running intensive software such as PC games, the system would require more power than what is actually available. Another reason can be overheating of the power supply. After the power supply is used for a substantial period of time, there is a possibility of dust getting collected inside it. And this may cause it to overheat, resulting in the shutdown of the desktop computer. If the power supply is at fault, you may need to get a new one installed.

Overheating of the Motherboard and the Processor
As with the case of dust getting collected in the power supply, the computer motherboard and the processor can also collect dust, which may be the reason for their overheating. This may also be one of the reasons why your computer keeps shutting down and restarting. You need to open the computer cabinet and clean the dust off the computer parts. The CPU board and the processor can also overheat because of many applications running. If this is the case, then it is suggested to keep the running of applications as less as possible or increase the size of Random Access Memory (RAM). Bad capacitors on the motherboard is also one of the reasons, why your computer keeps shutting down very often.

The 'Automatically Restart' Setting
If you are using Windows XP operating system, there is a setting that indicates the computer to reboot if it detects an error in the system's operation. In order to check if this is the problem, click on 'Start' and 'Control Panel', then select 'Performance and Maintenance'. Click on 'System', then the 'Advanced' option, and select 'Settings' from the 'Startup and Recovery' section. You will find an 'Automatically restart' option, which you need to uncheck for preventing the system from rebooting. Read more on computer keeps restarting on its own.

These were the possible reasons, why your computer keeps shutting down and rebooting. You also need to check if the power cables are properly connected to the cabinet and to the UPS, as loose connections can also be a reason for system shutdown. The most common cause of the computer getting shut down or restarted is due to overheating of the power supply and other internal computer parts.

Dell 3100 won't shutdown keeps restarting


Hi

the problem and few solutions are well explained on this microsoft page.
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/helpandsupport/learnmore/russel_02may13.mspx

I would recommend you try the first option.

1.
Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
2.
Click the Advanced tab.
3.
Under Startup and Recovery, click Settings to open the Startup and Recovery dialog box.
4.
Clear the Automatically restart check box, and click OK the necessary number of times.
5.
Restart your computer for the settings to take effect.


Now if there is a error while your computer is shutting down, you will get a blue screen with error details and it won't go ahead and restart on its own.

If you do get a error please post me the details from it and alteast the first set of 0x000... numbers from the left, the ones inside ( ) are not a must but may be helpful.

Comuter will not stay in standby mode.


So why do you need the computer in stand-by mode anyway? My computers are either on or off. Off saves power and hardware.

My computer won't shut down it just keeps restarting


The most common shut down problem is that the system will reboot rather than shutting down. In most cases, the reboot is triggered because Windows XP is designed to reboot after a critical failure. To stop windows from rebooting in case of a failure, you need to take the following steps:
Right click on My Computer, Select Properties, Click on advance tab, Click on Settings under Startup and Recovery, Uncheck the option Automatically Restart under System failure, Click Ok twice and try to shutdown the pc. If it shows any error code then let me know

When enabled, this allows the user to type numbers by pressing the keys on the number pad, rather than having them act as up, down, left, right, page up, end, and so forth.

so restart and enter set up(bios) and change it to lock numbers at start up
