Question about Intel Gigabyte GA-8IPE1000-G 865PE Socket 478 DDR 400 ATX Motherboard w/SATA, LAN(Gb), USB 2.0&Audio (MGA8IPE1000G)

1 Answer

My computer shuts down at random intervals, most of the time it happens when a larger program or someting with a large grafix demand is running, but their are times when it will shut off when nothing is being run except windows and its' componants. I got the computer from a friend who built it himself and it did not do this at first. I checked to make sure that everything hooked up properly and did not find any problems. It has an GA-8IPE1000-G rev 4.0 motherboard, 1x 512mb, and 1x 256mb DDR ram both installed on channel A,(could that be an isue?) Any one have an idea why it might be doing this now?

Hi, Random shut down is usually the hard drive. You need to get it tested at a repair shop and ask if it could be repaired or if you will need a new hard drive. If it's not too big of a problem yet, they might be able to do a lowlevel format which will eliminate bad sectors and do a new install. However, if there's too many bad sectors, it might need to be replaced. Good Luck and let me know what happens.

My lenovo g560 randomly shut down


Sounds like your taxing your system too hard. Perhaps you need to purchase a beefy-er CPU, graphics card, or cooling fan.

Model # 52sx4d lg randomly shuts down, intervals between time has decreased recently, now wont power up at all


Hello,
Well I just joined regarding a differant problem with my LG and seen this one.
I had basically the same problem with mine where it was randomly shutting off but would turn on by itself right after.
What the problem with mine was, was a solder joint on the power supply. Tech found 2 bad solder joints, repaired them and works great. This happened about 2 years ago. Hope that helps

MY COMPUTER SHUTDOWN WHILE IT HAS A 60%REMAINING BATTERY. UNEXPECTED SHUTDOWN. MY LAPTOP CANT RESUME THE PROGRAMS RUNNING AND UNSAVED DOCUMENTS AFTER THE UNEXPECTED SHUTDOWN HAPPENS ..WHY MY OTHER LAPTOP...


If the Computer restarts randomly, then the issue might be due to any damaged Operating System Files.
But, if the Computer shuts down randomly, it is due to the Processor.
All the Processors will be designed in such a way that, if there is any overheating issues, the Computer will shut down randomly.
The overheating might occur due to the malfunction of the Cooling Fan in the Computer.
As this is a overheating issue, it would be better to get the Unit examined at the Service Center.
Replacing the Cooling Fan in the Computer should resolve the issue.

Possibilities:
1. overheating, and automatic shutdown.
Check that the fans are working.

2. bad RAM, causing "random" crashing.
On a "good" computer, download the free 'MEMTEST86+' software, and run it, to test your RAM.

3. Leaking capacitors on motherboard, causing "voltage-spikes", leading to "random" errors.

4. Bad disk-drive. Remove the disk-drive.
Connect it as a "slave" drive in another computer,
and run 'CHKDSK' ("Check Disk") to look for problems.

Switched off at random twice yesterday and is running way slower


NP--Whenever I find that type of problem, I first suspect malware, then power or heat, and then maybe programs that just shouldn't be running.

Try running MSCONFIG. Shut down programs or utilities that you don't recognize.
