    thought of that but moving or shaking of the laptop doesnt cause it to shut down. i let it it all night in dos and set up and it didnt shut down. i also let it sit for 3-4 hours in windows safe mode and it didnt shut down. only seems to do it when loading windows or when i am working on some applications when i am able to get into windows which is far only in safe mode. in normal mode i can only get as far as loading the desk and it shuts down before it finishes. any other suggestions?

Keeps shutting down and takes several trys to start again only to shut down later


If the computer is overheating it will shut down to save the hardware from heat damage, the temp is pre set. It may get hot, due to air flow in a minute or and hour. What does the "screen comes up says problem " say? Check the fan and vents for dust and clean, improve air flow around bottom vents and side vents. Perhaps a Laptop Cooler? When the computer shuts down unepectedly, the computer see it as a crash and will load in that option screen. Run a 'Check Disk" on the OS drive buy opening computer in start menu, right click the drive with the OS (C), open properties, Tools, Check now, choose all options, follow instructions, reboot.

I DID A SYSTEM RESTORE AND NOW STARTING UP IS ALL I GET. EVEN IN SAFE MODE.


You need to repair your Operating System (OS) using your installation CD.
If repair doesnt work, then you need to reinstall your OS.

Hp pavilion a1220n shuts dwn after loading hp8500 pr drv xpsp3 os


If you can boot into safe mode, then once in safe mode open system restore and then restore to a couple days prior to the install of the hp drivers. This should fix the problem. If you need to know how to get into system restore let me know your operating system (Vista or XP)

Computer crashed, won't go to windows


Hi,

When you start you computer, after the bios flash. press the F8 on your keyboard before the Windows start loading. You should have an option to select to go to safe mode.

Select the safe mode option only. See if it will load the Windows under the safe mode option. If it did load the Windows under safe mode. There is an issue loading the driver of your Windows O.S. that i why its not booting under the Normal mode. Sometimes this is cause also by a Virus on your computer. You can run the Anti-Virus program under Safe mode to check for viruses

To fix this you may need the Original Disc of Windows O.S.
You can reboot the computer. Load the disc make sure that under the Bios option the CD drive is the first boot. Then save it.
after rebooting. Follow the on screen instruction on how to repair the O.S. There should be an option to repair the O.S. when you boot the computer using the Windows O.S. Disc

Note:
If you could do a backup of your files, do it first before repairing the O.S.

If it will not resolve the issue, you will have to reformat your computer.
