Computer shuts down by itself

My computer has been emitting alarm sounds then it goes blank and shuts off. A couple of times it resisted my efforts to reboot it, when I turned it on, just the alarm kept going on but the screen and powering up never happened. Sometimes, I can switch it on and it comes on normally. What could be wrong with it? It's still happening - earlier this morning.

Open your computer case and check the microprocessor fan, it should be either dead or if filled with dust, clean it, it should fix the issue.

SOURCE: My computer keeps rebooting itself.

First check the cmos (3V disc shape)battery on your motherboard is ot flat, as this causes reboot loops. Also check that the processor fan is free of dust and so you can count out overheating.

SOURCE: edited boot config now computer beeps three times fans turn on high and screen stays black

Hi,

You can restore the "menu" of the "startup" to how it was before.

The idea is to reset the CMOS/BIOS to the original factory settings.  There are 2 ways of doing this:
1. Is to hit F2 again and look for Default Settings, click on that, save and exit; or
2. (Preferably), open your PC and look for the reset jumper (3 terminal with 2 shorted via a jumper). This is normally located very near the backup Lithium battery. Temporarily, move the jumper to the opposite pair and replace back to original position after a couple of seconds.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need additional information..

Good luck and kind regards.

SOURCE: Emachine T6216 Automatically Shuts down

Hi MIchael,

Before I start replacing hardware, I would boot to safemode, and let it run that way to see of the problem repeats. In Safemode, a lot of drivers and software that may be causing the problem won't start up.

As soon as your start your machine, tap the F8 key about twice a second. This should bring up a screen with several options. Select Safemode. You will get some warning, so just click yes on those. Your screen will look really strange, since your video drivers won't install. Let it run like that for a few hours. BTW, you won't have internet.
If that still reboots, or shuts down, chance are good it a hardware issue. Might be your Heatsink on the cpu is too dirty to cool, but the techs you took it to should have cleaned that.
Get back with us, and post how that works please.
You can also right click on My Computer>Manage>Event Viewer and look thru the different catagories. Look for issues with red marks on them. To read them, just click on them. This may give you idea what is failing.
A issues that is random is hard to troubleshoot.
Good Luck!

SOURCE: My emachine is stuck cycling at start up

no computer is trash when you are dealing with a software issue.

boot up and tap on the f8 key... when you get to that screen... choose safe mode... if it successfully boots.... go to start menu... and restart again... it should boot... if it wants to do the update let it.... if still nothing.... f8 again and choose last known good configuration

My system arms but emits no alarm sounds on or off.


Could be a bad computer. If aftermarket, it is in the alarm computer. If original equipment then it is in the car computer. Before pursuing this, check to make sure your spare remote causes the same problem. There is a "remote chance" (pun intended) that the problem is with the remote itself. Not likely, but worth proving to yourself.

it sounds like your motherboard is shutting itself off to protect itself from overheating or some other system failure. you should verify all your fans are running at the correct speed. if it seems like everything is running fine, you can probably turn that off in bios. obviously if there is something wrong with the fans, then you need to replace them. Another options is maybe the processor is getting too hot which is why it's shutting down. open the case and remove the heat sync from the board so you can see the processor. clean the thermal paste off the processor and apply a new generous layer. put the heat sync back on and then try and restart. make sure before you do ANY of this you unplug the computer! good luck and let me know if it works!

I have a compaq presario CQ50-215NR notebook PC, and after a couple of hours of watching videos, the screen goes blank, and nothing can function, although the power is still on. What is causing this?


The most likely culprit is heat. When a laptop overheats, it shuts down to protect itself.
Buy an inexpensive cooling pad at Stuff-Mart or a computer store or simply slide a paperback book under the back edge so that air can circulate under the machine.

Hp flat panel monitor comes on shows logon and then blank screen


Ok, another words, monitor powers up for few seconds and shuts down by itself. If green LED on the front panel turns off as well or stays on?
If stays on, then inverter turns into protection mode because of old backlight lamps.
If it turns off in same time with an image on the screen, then there are some bad electrolytic capacitors in the power supply.

Hi, I got my on tour a couple of months ago and it worked fine. But just recently it starts stopping emitting any sound one hour or so after I start it. No sound at all, and the light goes off too. If I press one of the buttons, the light will glim just once.

Machine emits continuous high pitched bleep and power light flashes blue/red


If working OK, probably means that the temperature alarm goes off because is getting hot the PC. I suggest to check why is that happening. All fans working OK? is the CMOS temperature alarm set too low? check your motherboard instructions booklet- It will tell you what the beeps mean probably in the last pages. Good luck
