My computer sarts automatically when I want to shut down


it seems that your computer restart when you attempt to shut down. this problem due to short in power button in the cabinet. open the right side of the cabinet.most probably there will be red&white twisted thin wire from front panel for power, the colour may vary manufacture to manufacture.be carfull with it. see at left bottom of your dell PC mother board the wire will lead to two pin specifying power, restart, hdd etc.. short it with your screw driver. if system turn on then it is problem with switch replace it or if it not work then reboot the os.

Dell Inspiron6400/E1505 restarts automatically after shut off


The problem of your laptop is that once it has been attacked by a virus. In that very case that virus may be removed but the damage it has made to your OS cannot be restored unless you format your laptop with Windows XP/Vista.
Or next best reason may be problem with your laptop RAM.
You should quickly consult a good hardware engineer for sough ting your problem out. Bye

Problem regarding shut down


At least it doesn't Atomically shut down. that's a bigger problem.


but seriously give us a clue. no computer actually shuts down automatically, you have to push something or set it up to shut down on a timer or something. you've given us nothing to work from.

some ideas: remove the virus, remove torrent programs that might be keeping the computer running all the time, reinstall the OS.
