Computer shutsdown unexpectedly

My computer just suddenly shutsdown without any warning and the power button does not turn it on, i have to unplug it and wait at least 10 seconds before putting it back in, when i boot, it asks me to go into power settings, I have tried loading the default settings and booting but it takes me back to the same screen. At first i thought it was overheating so I left it unplugged for a night and let it cool down, when i boot up, i logged into windows and tried to make a recovery disk but it shut down halfway through. I tried turning it on again and it just shutdown while I was on the power settings.
I think its a hardware problem.

It sounds like it is overheating. Take the side off the case and see if your CPU fan works. Replace any fans that do not work or feel loose. And while you are at it, take a can of air and blow the dirt out of it.
Leaving it off overnight will not prevent it from overheating. A computer can overheat in a matter of seconds under the right circumstances.

Windows keeps shutting down unexpectedly


Your computer is overheating, it is shutting itself down to prevent damage to the internal components.

Your computer should be serviced by a computer technician. He/she will clean the components and chassis of dust. This will increase airflow over the components, meaning your system will be stable and will not shut down unexpectedly.

Take care!

Using windows xp the system shutsdown again and again during my work without giving any warning, however working with windows ME it works smoothly, why?


Windows XP "works" the CPU more than Windows ME.
So, the computer heats up, as the CPU works "harder",
and the computer overheats, and shuts itself down.

Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC power.
Remove the battery.
Purchase a can of compressed-air, and give the computer a "blow-job", to blow out all the accumulated dust, which is acting as an insulator, preventing the air-flow in the laptop from cooling itself down to "normal" temperatures.

I have a Vostro 1700 laptop. Normally i would press the start button the laptop to start up the computer, but recently, when i put the power switch on on my plug socket on the wall the computer just starts...


- buttons, especially the power button could be grounded. This needs replacement and repair. You will need to contact the manufacturer for support if warranty is still active. A technician needs to be there to replace some parts

- The reason why the computer went straight to diagnostic mode is because the power button could be grounded since it's turning on automatically when plugged and when the power was disconnected the system shuts down unexpectedly. Turning on a computer that experienced unexpected power loss may result to running in diagnostic mode

- You might as well check the battery.

Unexpected shutdown in dell inspiron 1545


it's not clear if the laptop shutsdown while in use or while its idle. it it shuitsdown while its idle meaning keyboard and mouse not touched for about 5 minutes this might caused by the power options from the control panel. try to turn off the power options make sure it is set to never.
if shutsdown happens while moving mouse and touching keyboard this might be cause a conflicting windows update. try to reboot computer the boot to F8 then select last known good configuration. if this fails try to run PSA test. power off the laptop then press and hold on the Fn key then press power button at the same time just one, this will run the pre-boot self assessment to check memory and hdd problems, once you see colors display press Y to continue testing, take note of any error code might display such as 0142 and 0146 this are hard drive issues and might needing to replace your hdd.

Cannon printer quit working suddenly.


Is it possible that the cord came unplugged from the transformer itself instead of the printer or wall plug?
A power outage shouldn't affect it, but a power surge can. Please use surge protection circuits on your computer equipment. It's so much cheaper than repairing or replacing them.
Take it from someone who learned the hard way....
You can try a printer reset. Turn the printer off, unplug the power and data cables from the machine. Wait at least ten minutes to allow the printer cache to be purged.(Canon's recommendation)
Then plug back in and turn on.
I hope this works for you! Good luck!
