Re: My system will restart itself after shut down

You may have a virus, or malware, or RAM problems.
use a good malware or virus software, and run with the last updates. sometimes in SAVE MODE is better to run,
most of the time, could be your RAMS.
you can use carefully one dimm of ram first then another. to see if shutdown well or do the same.

Acer Aspire 7560 wont restart

Before shutting down your system click on any programs still running and shut them down. This will cut the time for normal shut down to take place.

You could also run a hard drive diagnostic to see if it has any errors. There might be some if you don't let the computer shut down itself. Restarting can also cause the programs to become corrupt, if they didn't shut down right. Running a defrag on the drive will also help it shut down quicker.
Look on the net also for information on getting your PC to shut down quicker.

Also had this issue on the Touchsmart IQ526. Removed the CMOS battery, waited some minutes, then powered on. The power button remained blue and had video again. Reinserted the CMOS battery and put the unit back together. Note - the battery was on the mainboard.

I have an E machines t5026. I just upgraded the memory to 2GB 1x2 1gb sticks. The machine confirms the new memory is there and runs very quickly now. However it randomly shuts down and reboots by itself.....

Unexpected system shut down and restart after new hardware install is a result of installing the hardware either wrongly or its incompatible.
You will have to Reinstall the RAM chips.
Remove them, then fix them and make sure they are correctly fixed into *********** board.
If the RAM chips are compatible with you motherboard and it is correctly installed,
then the problem will be solved.

Thank you for using Fixya,

The computer will just randomly do a windows shutdown and then restart. Cleaned, changed the power supply and still does it.

Computers may not be smarter than people, but if they’re designed properly, they will shut themselves down before overheating to the extent that they do themselves damage. If the smart person keeps turning the computer back on and figures out a way to foil the protection, the unit is probably doomed. Once a unit shuts down for thermal event protection, it may refuse to power back up for a fixed period of time, five or ten minutes, or it may begin to boot and shut down immediately as soon as it boots to the point that it can figure out that its too hot. The over-temperature protection is generally a BIOS rather than an operating system function, so one sign of an overheated unit is one that shuts itself down while you’re using it and then refuses to boot as far as the operating system unless you leave it alone for an hour or so to cool down. Unless you’ve been working in a very unfriendly environment, high temperatures, direct sunlight, etc, you should take even a single overheating shutdown as a warning to back up your data at the first opportunity and to give the cooling system a serious cleaning. Check the CPU fan if it is spinning and also the CPU itself put thermal paste. So that the heat from CPU will absorbed by the heat sink.

My pc turns off itself

Check your cpu heatsink/fan. This sounds like an overheating problem as the cpu has a sensor that will automatically shut down your system to prevent it from frying. Hope this helps.
