Re: computer shuts down

Almost certainly an overheating problem. Speed Fan will provide a temperature monitoring solution if you don't have one built-in: This program will also give you S.M.A.R.T. info. Open the case and look for dust bunnies, especially in the heat sink and fan areas.

My Dell inspiron 518 will not turn on when power button is pressed. Green LED on back of power supply lights and orange LED on motherboard turn on. No fan operation on anything. Thinking it is the switch...

Green LED on PS means it's getting AC power. Orange light on motherboard means it's receiving power from PS but it may not be the correct voltage. The power supply isreceiving power from the source but is unable to properly distribute it to thecomponents. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defectivemotherboard. Just to make sure that nothing else is causing the problem, removeany PCI cards like modem, video card, sound card, etc... Remove the memorymodules and disconnect cables to CD/DVD drives. Look at the USB ports to see ifany are damaged.

System was up an running then, Then shut down

It sounds to me like it overheated and something burnt out, but I could be wrong. The main pieces in a desktop computer are: power supply, motherboard, cpu, ram, and video card (which is on the motherboard for lower end systems.)
Each one will need to be properly tested to find out which part(s) is(/are) failing, and the failing part(s) will need to be replaced.

Gateway GT4010 boots then starts beeping and shuts off

First check your power supply section and check your power fan that is running properly. if ok then the suspected area is your processor section. please check it if its collar fan nor running properly then clean up or change that. and the other advice is please check your processor pin which are too tiny. be careful about these.

Dell XPS 200 Computer shuts off leaving blinking amber light

3 most common solutions to your problem are:
  1. Bad power supply; once it heats up will quit without warning
  2. Bad heatsink/fan; processor heats up and will lock up your Pc
  3. Bad motherboard
Try opening the machine and give the inside a thorough cleaning, paying special attention to the heatsink and fan. Once clean and you've ensured the fan is operating, put it back together and see if your problem is fixed. If not, a new power supply will likely fix your problem. Best of luck.

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.

Dell Optiplex gx280 shuts down and orange power light blinks

It happens because the power supply is overheats and computer goes to standby. The power supply is 160w or lower. Specially it will happen if you put more devices in such as video card or sound card. So the only solution you have is to place a small 1or2 fans toward the power supply to make it cooler. And 1 more thing the power for the fans should come from other sources.
