Random shutdowns are normally caused by your computer overheating. The CPU has a protect mechanism that automatically shuts down when it reaches a certain temp so it does not damage the CPU. If you are computer savvy you can download a program called HWinfo or check your BIOS for CPU temperature readings as it runs..otherwise take it to a technician, however, as I always recommend have the technician show you the increased tempature before agreeing to any hardware fixes..if you have any questions let me know. Pls rate this solution.

Good day everyone,what is the cause of pc that suddenly shuts down without any warning,after a few minutes i turn it on again same thing happen,i noticed two bad caps get puffy and i changed it,but it


This is hard to find out without having the hardware at a hand. For example, even though you dust it off, maybe the memory slots are still dirty, also is always a good idea to clean the memories edge with a pencil eraser. Another thing that could be causing this problem is that maybe your cooler fan is not working at the right speed, making the computer freeze or even shut down without notice. The same thing goes for the processor.
If you know a bit about computer, go into the BIOS and set everything to default, reboot. Good luck.

When im typing on my keyboard it shutsdown my computer. For Example: I press the enter key and all the open programs close and the computer just shuts down. then im typing in an adress bar and get done...


It can be virus problem. Try to go in 'Safe mode with networking' (press few times F8 when computer start to get menu options). Download ESET (Nod32) Online Scanner:
http://go.eset.com/us/online-scanner
Scan your computer with repair option on.
After that update your Windows. If you can't do that from Microsoft, you can use AutoPatcher.exe utility:

I don't think it is keyboard problem.
You have free AVG good antivirus for homeusers.
Good luck!

My pc is shutting down what should i do to prevent it?


You haven't mentioned if it turns off abruptly or shuts down telling you that the PC is shutting down.

- When your PC turns off abruptly, its mostly the CPU which heats up. The reason may vary from the CPU fan stopped working to CPU gone bad.

- If its a proper shutdown, most probably there is a virus on the PC.

KIndly feel free to ask me if you need further clarification

Computer won't power off


The most common reason for this problem is that ACPI (the Advanced Configuration and Power
Interface) isn't enabled. To enable it:
Click Start | Control Panel, select Performance and Maintenance.
Click the Power Options tab.
Select APM - Enable Advanced Power Management Support.
Click OK.

Help! my sansa is randomly shutting down!


These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.

Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced.
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/driverList.asp
If these fail, then:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).
You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer.
