Plug out your pc, hold the power button for a few seconds and then take out the battery. Then wait a few minutes and put the battery back in. This should reset your cmos. If this doesn't help then the problem might be a corrupt bios, defective psu, faulty cpu or memory.
I would unplug it from the wall wait a full minute and then plug it back in. Also look to see if there is a breaker reset button by where the power cable goes in.
If no lights flash and you can't hear any fans or drives power up when you plug the power in and push the power button, you probably have a bad power supply. I doubt you have a bios problem because the device would still have some sign of life even if the bios was corrupt.
Hi! Welcome to Fixya.
Have you try booting to BIOS and wait if it will still shutdown?
Going to BIOS requires you to press F1 or DEL (or other keys depending on manufacturer)
If it will not then try Safe Mode (F8) and check if it will still shutdown. If the system will still not turn off, then you may try re-installing Windows or run stress test that will utilize the system and force it to shutdown. If it did then it may be the motherboard or other parts that needs to be replaced.
If you are lucky (that computer did not shutdown) and able to re-install windows that the end of your problem. but if you are still having the same problem then possibly your computers motherboard may have a leaked capacitor or some sort.
Hope this instruction is a great help.
Thank you for contacting Fixya. Bye for now.
Change your BIOS battery.
I have an old Shuttle XPC sn41g2. It's been running almost constantly since it was new. About a year ago it started to be difficult, it was difficult to start and sometimes I had to try several times before it started. At the end I had to disconnect and reconnect the mains supply everytime i had to reboot the PC. Then one day I discovered that the prosessor was running at the lowest standard frequency so I went to the BIOS to set it right, did so and rebooted, and the prosessor stil wouldn't run right. After some thought I changed the BIOS battery, went to the BIOS, resat all settings, then it rebooted normally and since it has been running like new.
Usually components (ram, video)give beeps to let you know where the issue is. I tend to start with the power supply when I get no indication. From there, ram. After that, I look at the CPU if I have one to spare. After that, I start recycling. You may also try to jump the start button wires, just to be sure. Don't hold them together, though...just bump long enough for the PC to get the signal, if it is going to...
