Re: problems with computer breaking down all the time

Since you are renting it, you have lost authority to fix it yourself or even having someone else do it. You should contact Radio Rentals and get a different one. Chances are, the computer should be formatted and a new operating system installed fresh. If Radio Rentals gives you permission to modify or install software, then there are many options to try for free so help repair any viruses and spyware. Avast Antivirus is good and free, Comodo Firewall is better than the Windows version and is free, Spybot Search And Destroy is free and helps with spyware. Remove programs that are no longer needed and defragment the hard drive. Use Eusing Free Registry Cleaner to keep the registry clean. The fun is about a computer to me is troubleshooting them. If you need any further assistance, please ask.

What Could Cause My Computer To Shut Down For No Reason?

What brand of pc is this? Download a diagnostic program to test internal functions. Sounds like maybe a motherboard or power supply issue.

It won't let me go to desktop, and it keeps shutting down and restarting. Ive tried taking battery out and turning it on and off but nothing will happen.


This sounds to me that there are bad Electrolytic Capacitors, on the motherboard.


Starts at 0:04


To be more detailed;

A Capacitor slowly builds up a charge inside, then releases it all at once. Crude example would be a large swimming pool being filled up with a garden hose, then one wall of the pool is taken down all at once.
(Some cameras use capacitors in their flash device)

Capacitors on the motherboard are used as Filters, and Voltage Regulators.
The one's used as voltage regulators are in the Motherboard Voltage Regulator Circuit.

Some of capacitors used in the motherboard voltage regulator circuit, are used for the Processor. The 'Brain' of the computer.

A Processor MUST have a steady, 'clean', supply of voltage, and it Must be kept within tight tolerances of the Processor's voltage range.
Cannot be too little or the Processor will not turn on. Cannot be too much or BIOS will turn it off.

Electrolytic capacitors have an Electrolytic Paste inside. After time the paste breaks down. Chemical decomposition. It's normal.

Computer engineer's know the paste breaks down after time. They use a capacitor, or capacitors, that are rated at twice of what is needed for the application.

This way when the capacitor's capacitance breaks down to 50 percent, it is still 100 percent good for the application it is used for.

Designers have come up with a deterrent to this problem. They are now using solid Polymer capacitors.

My solution is based on that your motherboard has Electrolytic Capacitors on the motherboard.
Some of the newer motherboards use both Electrolytic, and solid Polymer capacitors. For this design of motherboard I am referring to the Electrolytic capacitors, also.

If the motherboard is bad replace it. Of course this all hinges on if it is feasible. Cost of motherboard compared to replacing the computer.

Post in a Comment if this is your problem, and post the computer manufacturer name, and Model Number.
The Model Number can be found on the back of a desktop computer, next to the Windows product key, or up on the side of the computer tower.

[For an HP or Compaq computer this is on a white Service Tag.
P/N = Product Number, and the number I need ]

This way if you like, I can look up the price of a replacement motherboard, and see if this is a feasible alternative for you.
Then I can guide you in replacing it.

Hello Sis,
I guess your computer has a big problem with a virus which your anti-virus wasn't able to detect. If I were you, I will back up all my files on a separate drive then format your computer. This crazy problem already happened to me and what i did was the one i just wrote to you. If you don't have the actual drivers for your computer, go back to the place where you bought it from and ask for the drivers then you can format your computer by yourself. If you are not able to do it on your own, consult anyone who is able to do it for you.... Godd Luck Sis !!!!!! Good Day !!!!!!

No booting or nothing

Did you have a power surge in your area recently? Sounds like it could have been damaged. Can you press the F8 key (continually) while it's starting to boot & get the setup menu?
