Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC

1 Answer

My e machine shuts down unexpectedly.

Only hardware change in 6 months was new monitor. When coming out of hibernation, it shuts off. Also shuts off right after splash screen during boot. After 4 attempts to boot, I get system repair utility going, which enables a full boot. I am running one hard drive with XP or can boot up Vista (Vista sucks) on the other HD. Both fail during a cold boot or coming off standby.
Strangely, when in bios and staring at the temperature, the warmer the system gets, the better my chances of booting up. ??? But it's true. Vista shuts down more quickly than XP. Graphics card? CPU? No dependable pattern here, mostly a standby or boot problem but sometimes during no particular event at all. No weird sounds to clue me in, no new beep codes.

It could be a virus that your anti viral software isn't picking up. you could try to change your settings so that you boot from a disk and your drives are set as slaves( by changing the jumpers on the back of the drive, all info on a little sticker) and run an updated anti virus program. Also, if it turns out your drives are not going to play and you have a back up of your system, format the drive and start over. hope this helps, if not, sorry ;)

My m14x keeps shutting down when i usethe keyboard


Open Control Panel, Power Options, Set to High Performance, Open Advanced Power settings, Set Sleep and Hibernate to Never, adjust other advanced settings to your preference. If this fails to fix, Return it at once while your warranty is valid. After Dell bought Alienware they sort of went south.

How to start up faster, via enabling hibernation on your notebook.


Starting up much faster. When your computer hibernate, it stores whatever it has in the memory to the hard drive and then shut down. Once you power up again your computer come out of hibernation and return to it previous stated, and therefore booting up faster.
To enable hibernation on your computer do the following: On your desktop right click then go to properties, once in properties then go to Screen saver tab in there chose monitor power button. Once in the monitor power chose the tap for hibernation, then enable hibernation.
