    Ok Try holding down the power botton for 5 to 10 sec and see if the works. If not we will try some thing else.

Shut down automaticaly

Not much to go on, "shut down automaticaly" on battery or AC or both? A computer will shut down, or hibernate, if thats what you mean, that's a power setting? If a computer overheats it will shut down automaticaly to save the components from heat damage. If there is dust in the fan and vents it will shut down. If it is not getting sufficent air flow from vents on the bottom of the laptop through the vents on the side. One option is a Laptop Cooler.Is it shutting down when you are on it? When it's left unattended? Respod to this post for further assistance.

Hi, what you have not tested for isolation is your power supply, re-seating of processor for 20 minutes, cmos clearing or battery removal and mother board swapping. If all your isolation seems futile the worst is the mother board.

When i shut down my computer the screen does not shut off automaticaly

Possible errors in the OS and it will be good to use the restore action so as to set the PC to an earlier set date. make sure your PC is virus free. If you have the same issues then the OS must be reinstalled, the drivers installed after a good anti-virus is also installed.

My computer sarts automatically when I want to shut down

it seems that your computer restart when you attempt to shut down. this problem due to short in power button in the cabinet. open the right side of the cabinet.most probably there will be red&white twisted thin wire from front panel for power, the colour may vary manufacture to carfull with it. see at left bottom of your dell PC mother board the wire will lead to two pin specifying power, restart, hdd etc.. short it with your screw driver. if system turn on then it is problem with switch replace it or if it not work then reboot the os.

Check that cooler on CPU is turn on (to connector on mobo). If it not connected - CPU will overheated and system shut down.
