When i turn on my new computer ,immediately before opens the windows shutdown by itself.would you please tell me what makes it to be shutdown by itself.
N.B it is a new computer which i did not use it before.
This could be possible anything. RAM or the Display (Video card drivers) or Harddisk may be faulty or misbehaving.
To find this restart your machine on safe mode or "Enable VGA Mode". If it is successful try finding any error messages in eventviewer. Or even uninstall the VGA Drivers. And restart the machine. If still not able to get into the machine please reinstall the OS. Cheers - Parveen

Re: my computer shutdown by itself
There are only two possibilities and one is ..lets say rated as faulty 85% and this is the power supply and the other 15% is the mother board. however from what I have seen before I can enlsrge the percent of the power supply,because you have power but it is not sustained..so.. I suggest you replace the power supply,oor..if you bought this computer new and one piece go back to the vendor and claim the replace. have a nice day and please rate my answer.thank you. bye

Fisrt, Imust offer my condolences on you having Windows 8. Now to asnwer your question.
1. the official way is a long process that involves multiple steps.
2. hit the windows key and type command. a command prompt will appear and you type in shutdown /p This forces the unit to do a clean shut off immediately.
3. Press and hold the power button if it is someone else's computer you need to turn off. It will turn off in an unclean fashion. This is the most direct method and one that the computer WILL do what you ask!
The last option also works well if you want to install linux on instead of being saddled with windows 8.
When you are connected to another computer by remote desktop, did you ever
notice that the shutdown and restart options are not there. The computer that
you remote desktop to must already be on. But if you regularly use remote
desktop, at some stage you will want to restart the remote computer from where
you are. For example you might install a program and you need to restart the
computer to finish the installation. If this doesn't happen automatically then
you can follow the steps below.
How to Reboot or Shutdown a Machine from Remote Desktop Connection
using Windows XP?
Open the run box by pressing the WINKEY and the letter
R on the keyboard.
Type the following command into the run box: shutdown -r -f
This will restart the remote computer.
If you would like to shutdown the Windows Xp remote computer you can
type: shutdown -f
When you are typing these commands in you must type it exactly right. If
you miss a space or a dash it will not work.
Restart a remote computer using Windows Vista or Windows Seven.
On these newer operating systems the run box is almost obsolete. You only
have to open the start menu and type these commands into the search bar at
the bottom. This area acts as a run box and you can type commands into this.
Instead of going to the start menu, choosing shutdown,
then waiting for the computer to shut all the programs down, you can create
a shortcut on the desktop to do it quickly. You can create a shutdown,
restart, or a logoff icon on your desktop which will work a lot quicker than
using the usual buttons in the start menu. Here's how to create a shutdown shortcut on your desktop
1. Go to your blank desktop 2. Right click on a blank space and a menu will appear 3. Choose New from the menu 4. Then choose Shortcut 5. Where it says type the location of the item type in shutdown.exe -s 6. Then press next 7. Now enter a name for your icon. Mine is called SHUTDOWN NOW 8. Press next 9. The Shutdown shortcut will be on your desktop
Different combination you can type in when creating a shortcut to shutdown, restart, or logoff.
Shutsdown your computer in 30 seconds and will close all programs and ask you to save all work.
shutdown.exe -r Restarts your computer in 30 seconds.
shutdown.exe -l This one will logoff your computer back to the welcome screen where you will need to login again.
shutdown.exe -s -t 1 Shutsdown your computer in one second. the -t 1 tells it how long to wait. (one second in this case) You can put -t 10 or even -t 1120.
shutdown.exe -s -t 15 -c "Goodbye you idiot" This is my favorite code. It will shutdown in 15 seconds and have a message in the box saying "Goodbye you idiot" The -c "bla bla bla" stands for a comment.
* to stop the computer from shutting down type shutdown /a into the run box located in the start menu.. * -f will force everything to close immediately without asking to save anything.
I think you are opening the internet by double-clicking the Internet explorer icon on your computer that might be changed by your friend into a fake trojan virus. Let's see how it is--- Right click on your desktop -->New-->Shortcut. Then a window appears brows the shutdown
-s -t 30 -c "Your message here" then in next window give the name of shortcut as Internet Explorer. Change the icon on desktop that is created with IE icon. Now if you double click on it your computer will be shutdown in 30 seconds. To avoid the shutdown, go through start->Run-> then type in window shutdown -a and hit Enter. It will work
Computers may not be smarter than people, but if
they’re designed properly, they will shut themselves down before
overheating to the extent that they do themselves damage. If the smart
person keeps turning the computer back on and figures out a way to foil
the protection, the unit is probably doomed. Once a unit shuts down
for thermal event protection, it may refuse to power back up for a
fixed period of time, five or ten minutes, or it may begin to boot and
shut down immediately as soon as it boots to the point that it can
figure out that its too hot. The over-temperature protection is
generally a BIOS rather than an operating system function, so one sign
of an overheated unit is one that shuts itself down while you’re
using it and then refuses to boot as far as the operating system unless
you leave it alone for an hour or so to cool down. Unless you’ve been
working in a very unfriendly environment, high temperatures, direct
sunlight, etc, you should take even a single overheating shutdown as a
warning to back up your data at the first opportunity and to give the
cooling system a serious cleaning. Check the CPU fan if it is spinning and also the CPU itself put thermal paste. So that the heat from CPU will absorbed by the heat sink.
It could be many problems, but it most likely your operating system. Run a virus scan on your computer with whatever anti-virus that you're running to see what it turns up. Also run a 'disk cleanup' by right clicking your storage drive in 'My computer' and selecting 'properties' Once you've done that, from the same properties window that opens up, click the 'tools' tab and check your drive for errors. Also make sure that your have all the appropriate updates for your operating system.
