Hey Hi,

Restart Your System And Hit F2 So that u can enter BIOS and leave the system as it is and check whether the system is restarting in the BIOS as well and if not then your system has VIRUS INFECTIONS and if not then.

If its restarting in the BIOS as well then take your system to a local computer guy and get the HEATSINK CHECKED because of the thrmal greasing has leaked your system is not in position to sin k all the heat its generating so u might have to replace heatsink and may be processor.....

But make sure that u do that fast because if the THERMAL GREASING is the issue then it may damage further..

Computer suddenly shut down and won't restart

This type of shutdown problem occurs mainly due to following few reasons, 1) SMPS problem 2) RAM failure 3) Over heated mother board chip(s) or seldom over heated CPU 4) Virus or worm problem or OS problem. 5) Over heated power cords
Do the following steps one by one (to detect the exact source of problem) First replace the CMOS battery, change SMPS, check power cord, run the PC directly (without UPS), remove the data cable from hdd. if it runs well then set the data cable with hdd, if it does not work then definitely there is mother board/cpu problem. And if it creates same problem after fitting the data cable - change the hdd or format hdd and reinstall os. your problem would be solved.

Our computer shuts and turns itself on repeatedly with out any warnings.

Is it old or screwed up? the fan that cools the CPU (processor) could be broken and it just gets really hot and it turns off the make sure your computer is not fryed take it to some compouter guy that knows what theyre doing and have then check on it

After switching on the power supply, my pc takes around 3-4 minutes to start with APC UPS, earlier it was responding within half a minute

Have you taken it off the UPS and tried connected direct to an outlet.

Does it take the same amount of time?

If so you have a software or hardware conflict that is new and needs to be researched carefully.

try using the windows error log to see if there any startup errors.

The router is running fine all hook ups are fine changed the wireless card took that to a computer place and it was running fine at the shop when I got the pc home unable to access the internet even though...

The cable internet is not "seeing" the computer. The router is blocking it. That is why it works if you plug it into the modem directly. How to solve this is to turn everything off and unplug power to modems and routers for 3-5 minutes. Then replug in routers. Then restart computers.

That is why it worked at the computer store. Everything was shut down and restarted.

Also, sometimes it is necessary to call the ISP (for example Comcast) and have them re-send the signal. Also going to Control Panel Network Connections and choose "repair the connection" will reset the signal.
Be patient it will work.

My PC often restarts automatically when the main supply goes.

Hook up your computer directly to a surge protector or wall outlet and leave it on for a while and see if it restarts automatically, if it doesn't then you know your computer is fine.

If your computer still restarts automatically even with it not hooked up to a UPS then you know at that point theres a problem with the computer and not the UPS backups that have been plugged up to it. At that point it can be anything from an operating system issue to a hardware issue.

Also if you can verify that the computer is fine without it being hooked to a UPS then make sure the next UPS you get you only hook up the desktop and the monitor to it. This is a good way to make sure not to many items are hooked up to it that may be drawing more amps then normal.

Pc is restarting every 3 - 4 minutes , even though it is connected directly without a UPS(it is free from viruses )

i am a pc tech and of course i can only listen to you and give advice and things to do to determine the source of the issue, i am first thinking overheating,dirty fan blades and a cloged cpu heatsink will surely cause this kind of problem,? is the pc new/old, is it clean or not,and also what is the make and model and specs , ram, processor, hd gb, and if possible open the side of it and look for lots of dust and look for the fan and be sure it is working there will be atleast 2 one for the inside box and one on the motherboard(the large circuitboard) see if they are working and if they are clean . get back to me and i will respond asap Robert Alan

Alarm sound from UPS

The battery of your UPS is totally discharged..
Try replacing the battery..This will yield you best results..
Coming to the monitor..I think your SMPS is also spoiled because of UPS..
So replace SMPS also..
