    When you hit the start button do you hear the hard drive kick in or anything? Does the monitor even come on when you hit the power button?

Computer does not fire up. I do have steady green light on power supply. All motherboard connections appear to be tight.I have come home before to a beeping noise in the past. After resetting the machine...


That beeping noise may be due to over heating.
Most machines today have a temperature setting that will turn the machine off once the temperature reaches a certain point.
Safety feature to avoid damaging your cpu and components.
The shut down and restarting allows the CPU to cool down briefly.
Thus allowing you to start the machine again. Usually it will shut down again once the temperature threshold is again reached.
Good test is let the machine sit for 30 min. If it immediately starts up and shuts down a few minutes later. Heat build is usually the problem.

Typically this is due to heat sink or Fan on the computer CPU.
Check to be sure both are connected to the CPU and functioning.
If you have a fan on top of the heat sink above the CPU. Make sure it is working correctly. Dust build up over time will eventually kill the fan bearings or reduce airflow. Heat sink can and will become clogged with dust also. Replacement fans are easy to find. Heat sinks are even easier to clean.
Depending on your machine and CPU position replacing the fan can be a challenge. But can be done in a few minutes with minimum tools.

Each bios has different post codes and it is difficult to tell what is happening with out knowing the bios of your particular machine. Listen for the beeps and check your computer manual.
You can also google for this. Here is a web site that lists a few bios P.O.S.T codes.

Once you know the beep sequence you can look it up. Usually points to the problem and you can go from there.

Good luck!

PC SHUT down


three things i find to cause this,

one, the power supply is bad,
two, the power connector is lose or not push in
three, the heat sink on the processor has come off. This will cause the cpu to over heat and self shut off.

to test the power supply, pull the connector off the mother board and short the green wire to any black wire with a paper clip, this will switch on the power and see if it stays on.

if you need to replace it, you cannot use a regular atx power supply. E machines have a different pin out.

Burners shut down at set temp but fan continues lowering temp


the reason he told you not to cycle the power is because some where there is a flashing light that he can decode and tell him where to start looking for the problem. Call him next it happens and don't touch the power or the stat until he gets to see the unit.

No sync means no video signal to the monitor. The rest sounds like a corrupted OS. This could be from a number of reasons, including a virus. If you have NORTON or MacAfee, Your open to a lot of attacks. Get AVG free, and use Mozilla instead of IE.
The reason the fans come on full speed is the MB senses a high temp on the CPU, until the bios fan control takes over after POST. This is normal on most systems.

Turns on, then shuts down before anything shows on monitor


Is there more than one fan inside the computer? Did you double-check the connection from the fan to the motherboard? Sometimes a computer will shut down if it doesn't sense that the fan is turning on, to prevent the computer from overheating.
