    It could be just an overheat.



    When your computer startsenter CMOS/Setup and see what temperature the CPU is running at in CPU Health if your board and BIOS supports it - see if it is running near theShutdown limit.

    Is the machine just turning off or does it go through the windows shutdown process?

Hi there.
It sounds like the system is overheating.
Open the side panel and remove all the dust that you can see, a clean dry soft paintbrush should do the job, make sure you clean the CPU fan and heatsink (the metal block behind the CPU fan).
Once that's done the computer should stay on all the time but remember to clean the insides of the case periodically to prevent this problem form arising again.

Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

Amanda, as an emachine specialist, this problem is more likely to be due to a faulty motherboard. the boards fitted in these computers were never wonderful and this is just one of the symptoms of motherboard failure. See my website at http://www.motherboardsrus.net and select the emachines support pages thereon. If you need more help let me know. Chris the computer doctor 07926-106150

Bad setting. If you press and hold the power button, the computer will shut off. That will keep you from having to unplug it.

Online play is very choppy and I often get kicked off line.


Hello,
There are a number of things that can cause this, namely your internet speed.

Make sure you have high speed internet with at least 10mbps download and 1mbps upload for best results. Game play can also be affected by wireless. If you are connected to your router via wireless, try using a network cable instead. If your wireless signal quality varies a lot it can cause disruptions in your connection. If you have any P2P programs running such as emule, limewire, torrents, etc... Shut them down as they tend to sap your upload speed which in turn, affects your game. If your computer is not that fast and doesn't play the game without online mode very well, it could be worse online being you are now rendering more elements into the game. Lastly, EA Servers may be over loaded at peak hours which could also affect your game play.


Check your internet speed here http://www.speedtest.net and also your link quality here: http://www.pingtest.net


Make sure your ping is at least below 80ms and your link quality is A or C. Any less and you may have trouble playing some online games. And again, for the speed, it's good to have at least 10mbps download and 1mbps upload. My connection is 50mbps download and 3mbps upload with ping grade A and ping 3ms, so I have never had any problems myself with online games and real-time streaming J

Hope this helps!

Hi, My Samsung R580 I3 JBB2-US keeps on shutting down. If I close the lid when I re-open it shuts down & I have to restart or it freezes and I have to force restart. Sometimes when I boot up it...


Hi,
You can try go to Start - Control Panel - Power Options and check what you want computer do when you close the lid of your laptop. Fix that and restart laptop to apply the setting.
If the boot up not complete and restart by itself, in my opinon, there is something wrong on the start up process, could be hardware malfuctions, could be a software not compatible. Try check the start up process to see.(use Start- Run: msconfig)
If this happen often, you should call the Samsung customer services to find out. Laptop i3 should still under warranty.

Hope this will help.
Thanks for reading
