My system worked properly for last 10 months. but before couple of day system is shout down instantly, i tried to start it again, but after the bios screen shutdown again & again................ after...


maybe the time you install os you did not install properly, or you make an online windows update,
you need to check what application you installed last before you encounter that problem, if still appearing the problem got device manager and disable the "automatic shut down on system failure"

thats it

good luck

My system is shutting down and restarting and it shows system shutdown by thermal

When you have a thermal shut down, the first thing to check is the Heatsink/fan assembly. When you computer is cool, open the side panel, and power up the computer, and make sure the fan is spinning on the processor. If it is, observe the interior of the computer, and see if there is alot of dust and lint build up around the fan assembly. Obtain some heatsink compound, and carefully remove the clip or bracket that holds down the heatsink fan assembly. carefully clean off the bottom of the heatsink, and the top of the processor, and reapply heatsink compound in a thin layer to each surface, and reattach the heatsink/fan assembly, after you have cleaned it up. this should take care of your problem.!

My pc get restarting

Mostly this problem exists only when your computer is affected my virus. If the computer turns on and if you are able to get into the desktop screen and then if its shuts down, then its a virus. Try formatting your pc and install a fresh copy of a OS.

Or if the PC shuts down soon after you start the computer, its the hardware problem.Open the CPU case, remover the RAM and insert it again. try to clean the dust,

Windows will not turn computer off. I have unpluged every thing and all fans but the hard drive. I get 0.01 dcv when the computer is running and the same when I try to have windows turn the computer off....


This usually happens if Windows is having trouble closing a program. The easiest way to avoid the problem is to close all programs before you close Windows.

If that does not help, you need to track down which program is causing the problem.

If you are running Windows 95, remove all shortcuts from your StartUp folder.

If you are working with 98/ME/XP, uncheck all the programs listed in StartUp in the System Configuration Utility (you get to the utility by opening Start/Run and typing "msconfig" without the quotes in the Run box and then clicking on OK).

Shut down the PC. Reboot. Shut down again.

Then add one program back, shut down, reboot and shut down again.

If Windows shuts down as it should, add a program back to StartUp and repeat the shutdown, reboot, shutdown routine. Do that until you have pinpointed the errant program and reinstall it. If you are running a screen saver, consider it also to be a prime suspect.

Your Advanced Power Management, or APM, utility has decided to take leave of its senses.

Disable it, both in your BIOS file and in Windows.

That little sound riff that accompanies the shutdown is hitting a sour note.

Go to Control Panel and click on the Sounds icon to open the Property dialog box.

Scroll down in the Events box until you see Exit Windows. Change the sound settings to None.

Your TEMP folders are bulging at the seams.

If the C:\Windows\TEMP folder gets overloaded, all sorts of bizarre events can ensue. Clean it out. While you are at it, clean out your Temporary Internet Files folder as well.

Updating XP with the latest Service Pack may also cure the shutdown failure.

However, it is also possible that Advanced Power Management, or APM, is getting in the way of the shutdown routine.

APM may not be enabled in your XP configurations, but it may be turned on in your BIOS, a memory-resident program that controls how your PC sets itself up.

Microsoft recommends that you go to the Control Panel, click on “Performance and Maintenance,” and choose Power Options.

Click on the APM tab and click on Enable Advanced Power Management Support.

Personally, I don’t like automatic power management on desktops because it can cause all sorts of bizarre behavior. I would leave Advanced Power Management disabled in Windows and turn it off in the BIOS.

Consult your PCs manual to determine how to enter BIOS’ Setup file. Sometimes, as the PC boots, you can see a message on the screen that tells you which key to press to enter Setup. Press it before the screen welcoming you to Windows appears.

Once in Setup, look through the various sections until you find the option for controlling power management. Choose to turn it off.

For guidance on other XP shutdown problems, consult article 308029 in the Microsoft Knowledge Base. Use the article number as a search term at the support site below. Good information is also available at the site.

Cpu fan still running even the system was shutdown

Unplug your computer from the wall socket. Then the only power it will have is the battery that keeps the CMOS information. There will not be enough power for anything to run.

Don't forget to rate this solution.

System shutdown

Systems that shut down after being powered on can point to an over heating of the CPU. Other factors come into play with overheating. Too much dust build-up on & under the CPU fan blades. Dust builds up in-between the heatsink fins (Thus the CPU fan can not cool the CPU chip.)
The CPU fan may be running too slow. When the PC system shuts down it’s saving you from hurting the system. You did not list the model number of you're system. Check you're system & clean the mentioned parts. Use canned air & a dry clean small paint brush to help remove possible dust buildup blow the dust away with the canned air.

Your computer shuts down slowly because there are a lot of services that run in the background that have to close before the computer shuts down.

Another reason that it will be slow is because of some programs that stay in residence have to close too.

Running defrag and scandisk will sometimes speed up startup and shutdown.

Computer shuts down but does not turn off

Mchem, you actually have 2 separate issues going on there.
  • Open control panel > open the system control panel
  • in the system properties, click on the advanced tab
  • in the startup and recovery section, click the settings button
  • In the startup and recovery dialog box, under system failure, remove the check from the automatically restart option
  • click ok
  • click ok

  • Open control panel > open power options
  • in the power options properties, select the advanced tab,
  • in the power buttons section,
  • When I press the power button on my computer: click on the drop down menu and select the shut down option
  • click ok
Sebastien123, you only need to run the first part of this solution.
