Auto restart without warning

I have been on my pc for a while.. then all of a sudden it restarts itself. So I looked at it, it was still clean from last week and nothing was overheated. I start it up again.. and 30 seconds or so after loading windows and some other programs like winfox and msn etc... it shuts down.

Go to control panel>administrative tools>event viewer and look in the left hand listings at programmes etc and see if there are any red crosses or exclamation marks to give a clue as to the problem, but if you know it's not overheated and you have'nt recently installed any other software and recently scanned for virus and spyware it is probably a driver problem.

I have an Asus Zenpad,1year old. Yesterday suddenly it tablet frozeon automatic update, Completely stopped,now have only screen Asus logo circle dots spinning nothing else Thanks Marie

To reset it you should hold the power button until the pc shuts off. Then restart it and let the updates continue. If it still tries to update, just let it sit and finish. Do not restart it. It should restart itself. Worst comes to worst and it is bad still, post another msg on here and we can go into safe mode to turn auto updates off. Good luck!

My PC keeps restarting when playing this game

Computer randomly restarts is not something unique happened to you. Sometimes there is a dreadful total crash of the system and sometime it sends different errors, upon restarting nothing happens.

-- First of all disable the auto-restart option from your control panel settings
-- Remove any recently installed maliciously software/add-on or any other application or toolbar.
-- Try to cool down your PC as the overheating due to overuse of computer may result in system freezing and sudden restarting.
-- Update your BIOS.
-- Update the drivers
-- Make it sure the error is not caused by the deficient power supply. You may try to change the power supply.
-- Conduct the registry clean up scan for quick fix of the problem.

-- Remove flashy games and/or untrusted antiviruses/antispywares. Conduct the security scan through the most powerful scanners only.

If you have already been experiencing the computer automatic restart and shutdown problem then use PC optimization tool like Reginout to fix such kind of issues instantly.

1995 jeep wrangler just stops running without warning.

A bad crank sensor will shut the jeep off suddenly, while driving down the road, then restart later and it repeats over and over until you replace it.

My Toyota Starlet is demon possessed!

Not without trying to narrow down the choices.
If it shuts off like you turned the key its probably something electrical like a relay or the coil.
But you would really need to troubleshoot it when it happens to narrow it down.

My pc frequently restarting anytime

It may be possible that your CPU is overheating and the BIOS restarts your computer for safety reasons.

You should open the tower and clean the inside of it. Unplug the cooler from the processor, clean the fan od the cooler, install new cooling paste on the processor and put them back.
It should work perfectly.

N.B: Do not change the BIOS settings.

My car still stop all of a sudden without any warning and then it will have a little bit of a hard time starting.

If it starts fine when cold or will restart after it cools down and run until the engine warms up, have your TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) replaced. I have seen quite a few lately that will "warm" up and cause the car/truck to gradually run rougher as the engine compartment heats up and once it sits and cools off will restart and run again. You can go to auto zone, advance auto, etc and have them run a free diagnostic test on your car and tell you for sure if any TPS trouble codes are stored

Dell XPS 200 Computer shuts off leaving blinking amber light

3 most common solutions to your problem are:
  1. Bad power supply; once it heats up will quit without warning
  2. Bad heatsink/fan; processor heats up and will lock up your Pc
  3. Bad motherboard
Try opening the machine and give the inside a thorough cleaning, paying special attention to the heatsink and fan. Once clean and you've ensured the fan is operating, put it back together and see if your problem is fixed. If not, a new power supply will likely fix your problem. Best of luck.

Car suddenly turns off

Check your RPM sensor.  Mine did virtually the same thing.  It was NOT the fuel pump like Audi dealer said-after I repaired it.
