You may be dealing with bad or overheating with your processor or memory. If possible, try swapping out your memory chips to see if that does the trick. If not, you will have to try swapping out the processor (much less likely you'll be able to swing that).

Laptop randomly shuts down


This problem might be occur due to old BIOS version installed on the laptop.
If your system shut down unexpectedly within 10-20 minutes while playing games or scanning the system which takes high cpu usages then the problem is of BIOS and try to install the new BIOS version.
for that visit the site of your laptop company.

I bought HP Pavilion dv5 6 months ago and fan not working


Your cooling fan sounds to have went out,causing it to overheat and shut down.It also could be something in the fan stopping it from turning.Try cleaning it or blowing it out with it off.But it mostly sounds to have went out.

Try this. Go into your setup screen ( F10 or DEL ). From here set up the system to boot from another device ( hopefully you have the original Windows disk or a bootable 3.5" Disk)
I would like you to change boot sequence and boot from one of these other devices ( hoping that you don't have an infection which jumps to your clean boot - to prevent this on bootable floppy, open the little door}..

E-machine desktop powers up and shuts right down


Yes absolutely it is the power supply and EMachines have a reputation of using less than great power supplies. Do not turn it back on as it may cause damage to motherboard components. Now as for as getting a new one they are not expensive. FIrst you have to open the case and see what the wattage is on the current one..then go to a website like TigerDirect or NewEgg and order a new one. They are not hard to disassemble or assemble. Just a few screws and unplug some wires. So anyone comfortable with working with computers or electronics can do it....the only tricky part is remembering where to plug all the wires back into. So no big deal, order one with overnight shipping, an hour to install and she should be back up running by early next week. If you have any questions please let me know.

Emachine T6216 Automatically Shuts down


Hi MIchael,

Before I start replacing hardware, I would boot to safemode, and let it run that way to see of the problem repeats. In Safemode, a lot of drivers and software that may be causing the problem won't start up.

As soon as your start your machine, tap the F8 key about twice a second. This should bring up a screen with several options. Select Safemode. You will get some warning, so just click yes on those. Your screen will look really strange, since your video drivers won't install. Let it run like that for a few hours. BTW, you won't have internet.
If that still reboots, or shuts down, chance are good it a hardware issue. Might be your Heatsink on the cpu is too dirty to cool, but the techs you took it to should have cleaned that.
Get back with us, and post how that works please.
You can also right click on My Computer>Manage>Event Viewer and look thru the different catagories. Look for issues with red marks on them. To read them, just click on them. This may give you idea what is failing.
A issues that is random is hard to troubleshoot.
Good Luck!
