Emachines et1831-07 shuts down mid boot

I have a emachines et1831-07 and its shutting down about 3 or 4 seconds into the boot process. I was told it was the power supply. So I bought a 550 watt rocketfish power supply and its still doing it. Any suggestions?

In addition to that, check also the heatsink on the processor if it needs dusting, it may be filled with dust that it doesn't allow air to pass through to cool off the processor.

Please keep us posted.

This happens because your CPU is overheating, open your PC and blow any dust off the openings and CPU/Power supply fans, if you think one of the fans is not working... replace it.

SOURCE: emachines shuts down by itself all the time

There are a lot of problems with Emachines as far as motherboards go. Since you've already replaced the power supply, it's safe to say that it's not causing your issue.

Since you seem comfortable with the inside of your machine, go ahead and take out all unnecessary components. If you've left your machine the way it was since you've bought it, start with the modem card that's in the bottom PCI slot. Often, those can cause issues with the computer not starting up, staying on, etc.

Also ensure that the machine is free of dust, and that all cables and connections are secure. Try not to let things float freely, and make sure you're plugging the machine into a surge protector, and not directly into the wall.

Power supply sounds fine. If the pc won't power up it could be your motherboard. If the pc is powering up and you get a 'no signal' on your monitor it could be your gpu.

SOURCE: come on, boots up, then shuts down 5 - 10 minutes later.

I recommend checking your power settings in the control panel, it should actually be under display settings. It may under those settings somehow be set to shutdown in 10 minutes. You can find the power settings, sleep mode, UPS, and hibernation under the "screensaver" settings of display. Look for a tab on the screensaver settings that says"power settings".

The TV shuts down after a few seconds

You will need more serious diagnosis than can be given here. A TV is like a computer, It has a "Boot-up' process and when it fails to 'Boot-up' properly, it shuts down.

Starts up then shuts down within 3-5 seconds

is this happening everytime you start the machine? What is being displayed on the screen? Do you hear the fans running when you press the power button? Do you hear the disc drive running? Do you hear the cd drive click once and the light on the cd drive door come on for a second or two? Is it posting anything on the screen during the boot process? Is it getting to the actual windows desktop which is where you see your icons? Computers shut down for a reason. Either some piece of hardware is not working such as a fan, or some hardware is faulty (such as the memory, cpu or motherboard), or some software issue or a virus has taken over.

Shutdown problems

I assume it is not shutting down. Do a complete reset, unplug computer from wall push power button in for 3-5 seconds, then plug it in and restart the machine. Then let it complete the boot up process then go to start and shut it down again see if it shuts down now. Thanks for the question hope this assists you. John

Emachine 725 keyboard does not and machine hangs up

Re-boot and see if it happens again. To shut it down, press and hold the power button till it shuts off. Remove the battery and power adapter and then hold down the power button for about 10 seconds. Then re-install the battery and adapter. Push the power button to energize the laptop.

Computer won't begin boot process and shuts down in seconds...won't give time to try to boot from recovery disk

This could be a power supply problem, first to assertane what the problem is you will need to take the side panel off, make a note of where the cables go before touching anything, remove any ribon cables from the motherboard and any other peripherals attached to the computer ie printer, scanner,etc, you only need the keyboard and mouse attached at this point, reboot the mechine. post back what happens and i will run you through the next step.

I put in the recovery desk. I pushede F11 as prompted. I then pushed "R" for recovery and the computer shuts back down before recovery.


Some model of emachine will cycle through the recovery process. When your pc shuts down after pushing R, is it immediatly or does the pc perform a bit longer and then shut down? Also, when it shut down, do you push any buttons? (you should not have to.)
