Question about PC Desktops

Why does my computer suddenly shut down during use?

Dell xps 200 suddenly shuts down during use. Some times after several hours and sometimes after only a few minutes after turning on. When this happens it is several hours before I can use it again. The tower doesn't feel overheated only warm.

Remove the side panel and have a look if your cpu fan is turning.... you may need to blow the dust and dirt out of it as well... if the tower even feels remotely warm that's likely the issue... also check the fan on the power supply. either way it will likely need to be cleaned

What Could Cause My Computer To Shut Down For No Reason?


What brand of pc is this? Download a diagnostic program to test internal functions. Sounds like maybe a motherboard or power supply issue.

My Dell Studio XPS 7100 Desktop Computer has suddenly developed a whirring sound. What could cause this?


That is a fan causing the problem. First thing to do is open the side panel and clean out the dust, sometimes that helps. Next, with the side panel open, turn on the computer and look to see which fan is causing the noise, they are easy to replace. If it is the CPU fan it may be a more involved repair but its usually not too bad.

Hi Have a Dell Pc Windows 7 OS. it will not shut down unless I hold the button. Start-up in good shut down is always a problem


This is a possible malware or virus attack. Your system is encountering data or system corruption preventing it to execute the command during shut down. Best fix is to reinstall Windows 7 in your computer to erradicate all errors and make sure to install an updated security software (antivirus) afterwards.

Dell xps 200 shuts down without warning. The powe...


Opitions:
1.) Your system may have an over heating problem
Make sure all your fans are running and not making excessive noise.

2.)You may be a victim of spyware/maleware infections. You will need to have your system cleaned. This should help resolve your issue.

I would recommend trying CCleaner first to see if this helps you. Please keep in mind this will not rid your system of everything just keep you a float and offer you a fighting chance.

Please keep me posted and updated on your issue. I am here for you and will see your issues out till resolved.

Have a great and wonderful day :)

Thank You

My XPS 200 keeps shutting down and power light blinks


During when does your computer shutdown? Please check the diagnostic lights at the back as well which ones have light on it during the time it would shutdown.

Since you said that the light is blinking yellow it just says that your power supply is running outside its normal operating range. So most likely you would need a change of power supply. Maybe a higher wattage would be better.

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.

Slow, overheating, shuts itself off


sounds like your internal fans are taking early retirement, from all the symptoms..like running a car with no oil, you don't want to run a dell desktop without internal cooling..need to replace that fan..not too hard, actually.
