Problem turning on/keeping on computer

When I press the power button it will start to turn on for just a second, but then it shuts down. Then sometimes it will come on if I hold the plug in the back but eventually the screen will go black, all of the lights will go off but the power light and the fan is still running. Any idea what's wrong?

Toshiba laptop satellite L645D-4040 keeps shutting down


does it shut down and then just start right back up? If it does then press and hold the power button and make sure it shuts down all the way. Then take the battery out and press and hold the power button after the battery is out for about 5 seconds. Then let it sit like 10 - 15 seconds. After that put your battery back in and turn it back on and see if this solved your problem. I think its in a loop to make it keep restarting. Let me know if this helped. Thanks, Herb Stacey

Apple 20 in Imac G5 turn on for about 40 second and shut it down itself .. please help


Sounds like you need to reset your SMU and NVRAM:

To reset your SMU:
  1. Turn off the computer by choosing Shut Down from the Apple menu, or by holding the power button until the computer turns off.
  2. Unplug all cables from the computer, including the power cord.
  3. Wait 10 seconds.
  4. Plug in the power cord while simultaneously pressing and holding the power button on the back of the computer.
  5. Let go of the power button.
  6. Press the power button once more to start up your iMac.

To reset your NVRAM:

  1. Shut down the computer.
  2. Locate the following keys on the keyboard: Command, Option, P, and R. You will need to hold these keys down simultaneously in step 4.
  3. Turn on the computer.
  4. Press and hold the Command-Option-P-R keys. You must press this key combination before the gray screen appears.
  5. Hold the keys down until the computer restarts and you hear the startup sound for the second time.
  6. Release the keys.
If those don't resolve the issue, your computer will probably need service. Good luck!
