Check to make sure you're not going into Stand-By mode. Click on the Start Menu....Shut Down and make sure you're not clicking on Standby.

My Dell Inspiron 530 used to freeze up ever so often. I would have to manually shut it down and restart.After a while I found out that running the AVG scan it wont shut down so often.One day while booting...


This is a system fault error condition, including the power supply. Only the +5VSB rail on the power supply is working correctly.

ports to see if anyare damaged and then try powering on the system to see if you get a green power button.

I have a ET1831 and after about 30 minutes the machine shuts off. All programs run fine. Do I have a power supply problem or a mother board problem? How best do I diagnose the problem?


It could be a Power Supply issue or Hot chip condition on the motherboard due to lack of Air Flow for cooling or a problem with the motherboard. The first things I would check for are a Virus and Air Flow. There are a couple of Viruses out there that will do this. Get a can of compressed air and open the case and clear all the air channels and blow the dust out of it. With the case open turn the computer on and make sure the Cooling fan on the CPU works and the fan in the Power supply is working. If the CPU fan is not working replace it. Same with the the power supply fan, you would have to replace the complete power supply if that one is faulty. If your Video card has a fan on it make sure that is working as well. You maybe able to replace that fan if it's not but you may have to replace the video card if it isn't working. That would present you with a situation that the Video shuts down but the rest of the computer stays running. You will also want to check your power saver options and make sure you don't have them set to shut the computer down on time. I use screen savers and Hibernate settings to protect the screen from burn in but rarely actually shut down my computers.

Fan works randomly....when it's not working plug


Hi, If the computer is hot near the electrical plug in the back of the computer then the power supply needs to be replaced. This will also cause overheating problems if the fan does not exhaust enough air. You should not run the computer in this condition because the power supply can short out and take other components with it. Also there is a risk that it will burn up. Power supplies are very inexpensive and can be changed by anyone with basic computer repair knowledge. Hank

My XPS 200 keeps shutting down and power light blinks


During when does your computer shutdown? Please check the diagnostic lights at the back as well which ones have light on it during the time it would shutdown.

Since you said that the light is blinking yellow it just says that your power supply is running outside its normal operating range. So most likely you would need a change of power supply. Maybe a higher wattage would be better.

Dell 5150c shuts down orange flashing light


It was a faulty or worn out power supply fan. I just replaced it and the computer has been running for about an hour and a half and still no shut down. The system temperature is stable. It runs quieter now. New fan cost 13.88CAD.

Emachine shut down


No, it's just the USB ports that are still being powered.
Totally normal in most new computers. Same thing with the PS2 ports.
There are jumpers on the motherboard that can change this if you really want. It's designed like that to keep things like you have powered for when you do turn it on and need them.

This happens because your CPU is overheating, open your PC and blow any dust off the openings and CPU/Power supply fans, if you think one of the fans is not working... replace it.

Hard drive light stays on and system freezes


You may have a hardware problem of some sort. The first place I'd start is to check the power supply voltages. If one or more voltages is off tolerance, this will cause all sorts of symptoms. if you have a voltmeter check especially the +5, +3.3, +12, & +5 standby voltages. Use this site as a reference http://pinouts.ru/Power/atx_v2_pinout.shtml If the supply checks out faulty, buy a replacement, or, if tech savvy, you might repair it-- probable component defects= one or more electrolytic capacitors. Other possible problems are Memory errors (try subbing a RAM stick), hard drive developing errors, or a bad chip on the motherboard. If you have some spare parts, RAM, hard disk, you can try subbing parts and narrow down the problem.
