Problem with computer running

My computer has random times when it decides to crash and I am forced to restart. Sometimes my computer will not work after this problem has occured. Normally I let my computer sit for an hour or so and it works. Occasionally my computer will not work for 24 hours or more but so far it has eventually worked. Its been over 24 hours now and my computer is still not working. When I turn it on, the power supply fan is working and running, but the computer will not even load to the first beep. Any suggestions are appreciated.

It sounds like it's overheated. If you can do this, remove the covers and check the CPU fan and make sure it's running and not full of "bunnies'. Check the heatsink under the fan for dust also. Check the power supply fan to see if it is moving air. If you can, try running without the side panel to see if more air works....

When you do an install of Windows XP to 8 the system restarts automatically to run some of the programs in resident memory. I would suggest that you try a new install of your OS, If you are running a clocked CPU you should unclock it to remove that from the list of possible causes. The problem may also be a symptom of some upgrades to Windows not having been installed. The most common faults with this type of symptom is the lack of the Dot.Net upgrades from Microsoft the minimum needed is version 2 but the version level is currently at Version4. If you are still having the Kernel power problems you mat have a failed motherboard or more likely a dodgy psu. When you spend that sort of money on a MOBO and CPU/Graphics package you need to get a good (named ) PSU preferably at least a "Bronze" certified item.

Reiniciar el equipo


Normal restart: select restart from the apple menu, or press the power key (the sleep/restart/shutdown dialog appears), then click the restart button or press the "r" key.
Forced restart (use only if the computer crashes or freezes): Press simultaneously the Apple, Control and power keys.
Forced shutdown (use only if the computer won't respond to anything, not even a forced restart): Press and hold the power button on the computer until the computer shuts off.

My computer keeps shutting down randomly. Also when i try to use F10 it will not respond if i try and run error checking the system will crash/shut down or give me a black screen. Basicly it randomly...


Possibilities:
1. overheating, and automatic shutdown.
Check that the fans are working.

2. bad RAM, causing "random" crashing.
On a "good" computer, download the free 'MEMTEST86+' software, and run it, to test your RAM.

3. Leaking capacitors on motherboard, causing "voltage-spikes", leading to "random" errors.

4. Bad disk-drive. Remove the disk-drive.
Connect it as a "slave" drive in another computer,
and run 'CHKDSK' ("Check Disk") to look for problems.

Sounds like the relay (should be found with the fuses) for the wiper system is at fault. Either that or the wiring has shorted somewhere. Most likely a new relay is required.

Toshiba Satellite a215-s4747 randomly crashes


Hi!

When you says you run hardwarae diagnostic I guess that it is the hardware diagnostic tools from the computer itself.

Try downloading this software, it is a ISO image, so burn in a CD and boot from that CD.

It will boot up and run a memory diagnostic in DOS mode.

I think that this is a memory problem.

P.S. Did you clean the memory contacts and memory slots in the computer?

Do you have more than one module of memory RAM? In that case try with only one and switch with the second one to see what is the defective module.
