Maybe its a problem with the battery. try taking off the battery and running on power only. i know my battery has nearly reached its limit and practically has a lifesan of 1 second, whenever its overcharged in about 4 hours it turns the system off automatically. i dont know why i still keep the battery though it does make the laptop look better.

Needs servicing. Sounds like a bad motherboard or corrupt drive, what are the error messages besides the obvious fan malfunction?

    Symptoms, not error messages is what I meant. Is this a laptop. or desktop? Sounds like an intermittent power issue. Does hot weather vs cold weather make a difference?

My rome total war game keeps shuting down every few minutes, what is wrong?


Sounds like a bad graphics card in the computer. Verify that the fan on the graphics card is actually turning, it may be heating up and shutting down.

Computer keeps shuting down


The fan area of your PC is probably stuffed with some rubbish which is sticking the fan and/or overheating it - which causes the PC to shutdown every few minutes.

Open your PC and remove the rubbish

Dell dimension 370 randomly shuts down orange light flashes on pwr button


I suspect your graphics card or processor is overheating and shutting itself off to prevent damage.

Cool the unit down with additional fans, introducing cool air and exhausting warm air is key to a reliable, stable computer system.

The reason for this sudden problem is most likely because a higher resolution on the new monitor is supported, therefore making the computer work much harder than before.

Take care!

Shut down my computer the next day i started it up the windows welcome comes up and then it go blank.


okay, sounds like a virus or a windows corruption issue.... restart the computer and keep tapping F8 on the keyboard. On the advanced boot options ... select Safe Mode. and hit Enter twice. once logged on try to do a system restore.
start - all programs - accessories - system tools - system restore.
take it back a few days. see if that works. if it doesn't then revert.
Thanks. If this was helpful, then kindly rate me.

When i press power buton computers, on/off led just blinks once,cpu fan turn few times and stop, power supply fan also turn few times and stop and computer does not start.


Possible bad power supply, hard drive, and or CPU. If there is a computer repair store close to you, I would take the hard drive to them and have it checked out thoroughly to make sure all the sectors are in tact and possibly have the power supply OHM'd to make sure the proper amount of voltage is coming out in order to turn the computer on in the first place.

Computer Keeps Shuting Off/Battery is Useless


Try running a good malware program like AdAware. Often these spyware programs can driver your processor to 100%, causing it to heat up too much and shutting things down. Once you have the anit-spyware loaded, bring your system up in safe mode. This will allow the spyware to search the hidden partitions on your fd, along with the rest of the disk.
