Re: pc switches off on its own

Sounds like a power supply problem, or an overheating problem. Is the cpu case expelling hot air? open the case verify that is has at least 1 working cpu fan. It should also have at least 1 other fan inside the chassis.

Why does video pictures on my lap top all go offafter 3 seconds

Does this happen on regular web pages or when running other apps like Word? I repair laptops and have found that sometimes the screen switch is flakey and needs contact cleaner to get it working properly again.

HP Dv5t laptop wont switch on

Computer does not boot up The problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you.

Hi there my acer aspire 4315 laptop turns all white when i turn on my laptop?? i dont know why this does this??? but i have sent it to a expert but they didnt fix it at all. i often fold the screen down...

At least you know the back-light works. There is a ribbon cable that connects the video to the LCD screen from the lower part of the laptop - sometimes it wears out because it is not properly seated, then it breaks. Try connecting an external monitor to the VGA port and see if you get the same symptom. If it works ok, then that ribbon cable is broke.

Hi questpilot,
what you're saying it can be 3 possible case
1.its the backlight that have problem and I give it 90% to your problem.The behavior of spoil back light sometime you can use and sometime you can't if you tab the switch that mean you power off the light and after that you power on it again so this will work for 1-2 second
2.Bad inverter or bad chip on that inverter this always happen but like this case sometime after switch, you can use for nearly a week or two. so I give it only 40% for your case.
3.Its the lid actuator but you already push it up and down already and still the same.and also when you push it down and up the light turn I think this is working fine.
