Is this a desktop or a laptop?

In either case, it could be one of your fans is not functioning. There is a fan on top of the heatsink on the CPU. If it's not turning then the CPU will shut itself down before it's destroyed...this is a good thing. If this is a desktop then the case fan may have failed. Make certain both of these fans are turning. You will need to open the computer to see the CPU fan.

If they are both turning then it's possible the CPU heatsink fins are filled with dust. This prevents airflow. If this is the case, use your vaccuum cleaner to get the dust out. This will be much easier if you have a desktop, opening laptops is more involved.

Please let us know what you find.

Acer Aspire 5002WLMi PC Notebook Laptop shuts down automatically


  • Start tapping the F8 key. The Windows Advanced Options Menu appears. If you begin tapping the F8 key too soon, some computers display a "keyboard error" message. To resolve this, restart the computer and try again.
  • Ensure that the Safe mode option is selected.
  • Press Enter. The computer then begins to start in Safe mode.
  • When you are finished with all troubleshooting2_bing.gif, close all programs and restart the computer as you normally would.
If this does not work you will probly have to go back to factory settings

Umm... can't boot to windows at all so the program that was provided wont work, can't reinstall windows automatic disk eject on startup!


Hi,

Restart your computer. Immediately after the screen goes blank for the first time, press the F8 key repeatedly. The Windows Advanced Options menu appears. If the menu does not appear, restart your computer and try again. Use the cursor keys on your keyboard (your mouse will not work) to select Last Known Good Configuration, and then press ENTER. Windows XP attempts to start.

If you recently installed new hardware, shut down your computer and disconnect the hardware. Then, restart Windows XP and troubleshoot your hardware to get it working properly.

Restart your computer and press F8 again. This time, choose Safe Mode and press ENTER. Windows XP attempts to start in Safe Mode, which does not automatically start programs and hardware, and displays very primitive graphics. If Windows XP starts successfully in Safe Mode, you can remove any programs or updates you have recently installed. Then, restart your computer normally.


Good luck!
And Thanks.

My computer restart after 30 min automatically


This could be a thermal problem, or perhaps some application is shutting down/restarting the PC? look in the "scheduled tasks". to see if anything is there, if so remove. Check in the Error logs to see if they report a problem. if so remedy it.

Pavilion dv7 keeps shutting down


  • This may not fix your issue but its worth a try ...let me know how it goes
  • If the computer appears to shutdown and then attempt to restart without displaying an error message, do the following to disable the automatic restart on error setting.
    1. Click Start , right-click Computer , and then select Properties .
    2. Click Advanced system settings , grant permission to continue if prompted, and then click the Advanced tab.
    3. Click Settings in the Startup and Recovery section of the Advanced tab.
    4. Deselect the Automatically restart checkbox under System failure .
    5. Click OK to close the Startup and Recovery window, click OK again to close the System Properties window, and then close the Control Panel window.
    6. Restart the PC.
    Disabling the automatic restart setting allows time to view the error message that displays on the screen. Contact the manufacturer of the program or device that is causing the error for specific information about the error message.

    Hp laptop random shutdown - overheat?


    Your CPU is likely overheating. Very likely the thermal conducting material between the CPU chip and the heatsink may have shrunk and now impeades the thermal transfer.
    You may need to remove the heatsink and put new thermal paste and perhaps copper shim to restore the thermal contact to the heatsink.

    The Computer has trouble restarting Windows XP. I have to shut it down and unplug it for at least 2 minutes in order for it to start normally past the black screen. Otherwise, it will keep restarting...


    I'm guessing from what you are saying, that it will in fact boot to safe mode. the culprit is most likely a resently added program. my other favourite is thermal shut down. remove the cover (after it is shut down and power is removed) and see if it's filled with dust and dirt. when the case is off start the computer up. are all the fans working as well ?

    Shut down problem


    Try getting in through Safe Mode by tapping the F8 key while the computer is booting.

    If you can get in.

    Right click on My Computer, select Properties, click Advanced, click on Settings for Startup and Recovery. Make sure there is NOT a check in the Automatically Restart box.
