SOURCE: the computer starts then shuts down.

once you start your computer, once its in the bios load screen hold down the f8 key, this will bring up the advanced boot options screen. choose disable automatic restart on system failure. whats happening is that it sounds like your computer is giving you a stop error and automaticly shutting down as to not lose data. try this and if it trys to shutdown, this time it will give you a blue screen with an error code so we can find the sole cause of your issue.

SOURCE: I cannot logon to my PC

Start your PC in safe mode, to do this repeatedly tap the F8 key as soon as you turn the power on. This will then bring up an "options" screen listing boot in safe mode, safe mode with network support etc. Just use safe mode. If it goes directly to windows instead - shut it off and try again til u get the safe mode screen. The arrow keys control the selection to choose.When it starts in safe mode a black screen will usually appear with a bunch of writing, this is normal, after that it may "hang" for as long as 5 minutes, before coming up with a login screen. Sometimes hitting enter or escape will bring up the login screen faster. When you have a login screen, login and disable the updates using the software control options for the software that is trying to update. You might also go to control panel, administrator options, then services and disable automatic updates temporarily. When your pc starts in safe mode - it starts with minimal drivers and does not run updates- this allows you to change settings. You can then reboot normally and it should start properly without updating before starting.

SOURCE: when i turn my dimension 8200 on it will not

Your operating system or Master Boot Record is corrupt. Which version of windows are you using?

It may be possible to repair the problem with your windows disk. Boot from the Windows disk but make sure you read the instructions for windows repair carefully because some options will format your hard drive.

To rescue the data here are some things I do:
Make a boot disk with USB support and transfer the contents of your drive ton an external harddrive. Or, you could place your hard drive in another computer as a slave drive and retrieve your files that way.

Laptop will not shut of after closing the lid


In Windows XP, Open Control Panel, Power Options, set to High Performance, set Sleep and Hibernate to no/never, set what to do when lid is closed. Use this procedure: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-xp/help/setup/configure-power-management It's a good idea to Shut down at Start Menu and unplug when not in use to prevent damage due to power surges, and IF the battery malfunctions, prevent a fire hazzard.

Dell Vostro 3500 suddenly shut down, start up and works fine, after 2 minutes turn off without any warning message this happened after i installed bios upgrade A10 from dell.com


this is happening because of bios upgrade but not in a bad way. May be there is a hardware problem just starting so new bios upgrade is detecting that and thats why its restarting.

basically sudden shut down occurs in either cases- Fan not working or hard disk(or RAM) gone bad.

my advise is to contact dell customer support and they will guide you thru trouble shooting steps.
they will guide you if your warranty is not there.

You should start it up in safe mode. To do this, you repeatedly press F8 as it's starting up, until you come to a menu of startup options where you'll see options such as safe mode, safe mode with networking, etc. Boot into safe mode. Once you're in safe mode, you can do lots of stuff like roll back the updates, disable certain startup services, etc.

Porblems shutting down my new Dell Inspiron Vista (32 bit) Notebook


ROB, TRY GOING INTO POWER OPTIONS AND GO THROUGH THE SETTING THERE. IT HAS DIFFERENT SETTING THAT SAY THINGS LIKE " WHEN I CLOSE THE LID ON MY LAPTOP I WANT IN TO GO TO SLEEP" ETC. YOU SHOULD FIND A SETTING THERE THAT HANDLES WHEN I HIT SHUT DOWN I WANT THE COMPUTER TO I.E. SLEEP, HIBERNATE,STANDBY. I THINK YOU SHOULD GET THE IDEA. CHECK THOSE AND SEE IF THIS HELPS SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM.
