SOURCE: My Acer Aspire AST180 shuts down with no warning

Sounds like you have a faulty power supply. The internal parts of your pc produce alot of heat, and if a part is heating up, then it will cause your pc to shut off.

With you saying that unplugging it , and then waiting , and then it comes back on, it sounds like once some part has cooled off, then the pc works.

My bet would be your power supply. Do make sure however, that all your parts are still tight in their sockets.. ie processor, memory , etc. I saw a pc that shut off at random times because the heat sink didn't make good contact with the processor once in college. So you want to check those things.

SOURCE: Dell Dimension C521 power shuts off spontaneously

It sounds like your power supply fan may be overheating. The easiest way to determine this is to open the case and look at the fan while it is spinning- if it is indeed spinning at all. I find the best way to get an idea of the functionality of the fan is to shine a flashlight on it at an angle. If you can detect fluctuations in the rpm visually, you know where the problem is. Then it's a matter of changing out the power supply. If, however, the fan seems to keep the same rotation speed constantly, we'll need to look further. Let me know what you find out before we go deeper into the system.

SOURCE: Dell Inspiron 530 randomly shuts down and restarts

Sounds like it could be a virus. Or, a heat buildup problem - are all fans inside machine working? Is the fan inside the power supply operating? Was there any work done inside the computer recently?
If the hdw is all ok, go out and buy yourself a copy of Norton Internet Security 2009 - 1 user lic - $49.99 @ Staples. Do *not* buy any earlier vers. of this software! Install, update it, run computer computer scan - probably will find/remove some/many viruses.

If this helps, please take the time to rate my response to you.
Thanks and good luck.

SOURCE: My gateway dx4300-03 starts up

By Cyclontech!

Hi, The solution to fix the problem is by changing your power supply. Just make sure that you replace it with a 500W or higher and not with the same 300W which does not have enough power for this system, plus it is defective. I have changed the power supply to 4 diferent gateway PCs same model dx4300. And all 4 are working perfect. And run a check disk on CMD to fix the disk errors that were created every time you unplugged it and turned it on again.

Most likley you have a fried power supply. Try this first unplug the computer from the power cord for 5 minutes then plug back in and go into safe mode see how to go into safe mode below.

To start the computer in safe mode 1.
You should print these instructions before continuing. They will not be available after you shut your computer down in step 2.
2.
Click Start and then click Shut Down.
3.
In the drop-down list of the Shut Down Windows dialog box, click Restart, and then click OK.
4.
As your computer restarts but before Windows launches, press F8.
On a computer that is configured for booting to multiple operating systems, you can press F8 when the boot menu appears.
5.
Use the arrow keys to highlight the appropriate safe mode option, and then press ENTER.

While trying to set up with my WyFlyer WDB20B it lost or changed the IP address and Ican not get it to communicate with my computer. How do I reset the IP address or determine what the new one is?


shut down your computer, unplug the hub for about 1 minute. plug it back in then turn on your computer. if it still can't find it, do the same thing, but after unplugging your hub, there is a reset switch in the back, very tiny hole. press for 5 second to restore factory settings and then plug it back in and restart your computer.

How do i remove the back off a sony vaio to replace usb ports? i have took all the screws out but do not want to put to much pressure on as do not want to break it! (Repairing it for a friend)


You cannot easily replace the usb ports as they are soldered as part of the motherboard. If the ports are not working then go as follows and attempt to reset them

I'm going to assume that you're running XP (home or pro). . This is the sequence to use
1. Right-click My Computer and select Properties
2. Click Hardware
3. Click Device Manager
4. Expand the Universal Serial Bus Controller
5. Right-click each USB device listed and select Uninstall
6. Click OK to confirm removal of each device

Note: Repeat steps 5 and 6 until all devices under UBS Controller are removed

7. Shut down computer.
CAUTION: Ensure that the Shut Down option is selected instead of Restart.
8. Wait a few seconds and turn computer on. When it reboots you will see "Windows has detected new or added hardware"

Note: You will have to insert your Windows CD, if prompted.

These steps will refresh the USB ports.

Added Notes: 1) If your mouse is a USB you will have to use the keyboard to shut down your computer. 2) It would be wise to unplug everything from your USB ports EXCEPT your mouse and/or keyboard before you restart the computer to avoid Windows replicating any printers, scanners, digi-cams, etc. Once Windows has refreshed your USB controllers and ports, shut down again. reconnect, and restart.

Good Luck
