Why is my all-in-one powering down?

My All-in-One will power down unexpectedly with no warning. I'm running antiviral that is kept up to date so I don't think its infected. Any thoughts?

My Dell windows 10 will not log off circle keeps spinning


Usually, this means that something either running in the background, or an app, or an update trying to install is keeping the pc from shutting down. Wait about an hour if it is still just sitting there spinning you may want to do a hard power down.

WARNING forcing your pc to power off may have unexpected results not limited to unable to power up and lost data.

To force the pc down press and hold the power button until the unit switches off. Immediately restart the unit and do a thourough review to ensure proper operation.

Why is my acer aspire shutting down


If you're running Windows go into Control Panel and check Event Viewer. Look under Windows, System, and look at any Warnings (Yellow triangles with exclamation marks) If you're seeing error codes you can look those up; if "unexpected shutdown" shows up a lot your laptop could be overheating or it may be a power issue.

If you believe a virus may be the cause of your laptop's shutdown problem, run a virus scan on the system to find out if any exist.



if your laptop keeps shutting off


If your laptop suddenly shuts itself off for no apparent reason, there are several factors that can contribute to the problem.


When you troubleshoot the laptop, remember that it is also possible for a combination of causes to be at work.

Excessive Heat


Keep Cool


All newer laptops have built-in heat sensors that shut the computer off when it exceeds a pre-set temperature threshold. Install and run a temperature monitoring utility to determine whether the laptop is overheating.

might be getting hot

check you CPU make sure its securely seated and has thermal grease

Hardware Issues


If you replaced or installed new hardware in your laptop, use the device management utility to review if there are any resource conflict or failure reports. You can also remove unnecessary hardware and run the laptop to see if the problem persists. If it doesn't, reinstall each hardware component and re-test until the laptop fails.


Operating System Issues


The operating system start-up controls can affect how the laptop performs.

Follow the operating system developer's instructions for entering the start-up program, and confirm that the settings are what your laptop requires.


Power Supply


If your laptop is not getting the correct power it requires, it will shut down completely. Test the current of any outlets you use with your computer, employ a surge protector to ensure steady current, and confirm that the power supply itself is not defective.

Battery


Failing batteries can produce unexpected laptop shutdowns.

Use a battery monitoring utility to determine whether or not the battery is healthy and replace it if it isn't.


Malware


Unfortunately, rootkits and viruses can cause your laptop to shut down without warning.


You will probably have to take the hard drive out of the laptop to be able to scan it fully and remove any malware that is installed, or the laptop will shut down before the scan and repair can finish.

Asus u52 shut down unexpectedly


When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.

My Sony Dream Machine won't save the correct time. When I set the date, it defaults back to 2009, and even when I get the correct time set, the clock won't advance. It's been 8:52 PM for...


My wife's unit has the same issue - tried the firmware update (from Sony's website) and their suggested fix with no luck. Still works as a digital picture frame, but wrong date and stuck time kind of disappoint.

FYI - Suggested fix for stuck date/time:

Unplug unit.
Remove backup battery.
Leave for 30 seconds.
Plug back in and then put battery back.
Set date and time.

Didn't work for me, but maybe you'll have better luck.

Acer 5520 power shutdown


Possible heat issue. Check the cooling fans and see if theyre running. Usually one on the bottom, back or side of the laptop. Make sure that the cooling vents arent blocked during use.
