    What kind of system is it? Desktop, Laptop? What is the model Number?

    When it powers off, does it reboot, or does it turn off, and stay off?

This can b caused by a few different problems
1) The machine can be over heating, maybe due to a bad or slow running CPU Fan.
2) Bad power supply
3) Can b software problem, maybe a Virus
Try turning off all of your start up programs, you can do this by going to the run box and typing msconfig, at the header of the page select start up and disable all, Restart the machine if
it' runs, let me no, if it' still restarts try starting the computer in safe mode by keying F8 at startup If it still no work get back to me.

My first guess is that you have a virus.  If your virus check software cannot find the problem, other possibilities are a bad power supply or power switch.

I have an LG Wt1201cv top load washer, the drain pump stays on. It comes on the minute the power button is pushed and stays on for a couple of minutes after the power is turned off. The washer will not...

That sounds like the 'Anti-Flood' sensor at the very bottom of the washer.
There is either an actual water leak, setting it off, or, perhaps, there's a cockroach stuck under it (!)
Remove the front lower panel, (or other if easier) and inspect.

My machine wont stay on wash starts turns a few times then turns itself to the "on" mode

If the drum is turning then its most likely the tacho on the back of the motor or the wires connecting the tacho to the control panel. So the motor is turning but the panel can't control the speed so will switch off straight away.
If the drum doesnt turn but you hear the motor kick, then the drum belt is broken...

E machine monitor turns itself off and on

The same thing happened to me today. I was just sitting in my room then i hear a click and the cpu is on it stays on for a while then cuts off. It then cuts on and off with few seconds in between. It then stays in that way cutting and off for about a minite or two and then cuts off completely. A few minutes later it starts again. Also in the time it its off it will not turn on by pressing the power button. Sometimes it completly boots up by itself and then shuts itself down. If I shut it down manually while its on it'll turn itself on immeditaly after. What's going on! Will the warranty cover it? Do I need a new computer?

Emachine 3240 possible power problem?

I would suggest try to swap the power supply out with another known good power supply.

I've seen where even though the light on the motherboard is lit, it is not getting enough power to start the machine up, especially if you have a higher end video card connected to it.

Maytag washer

Have you tried unplugging the machine, or turning off the breaker if the plug is hard to reach, for 24 hours. The computer may have to reset itself.
