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 pc is shutting down and I can't wake it up without shutting down the power from power supply. The Antec 300 tower has two blue lights- the top light starts blinking when it has shut down and I


sounds like a power supply problem

Test your PSU power supply unit or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle of restarting or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive



Test all leads that attach to your hard drive power and data cables IDE SATA
the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

hope this helps

Does this refrigerator go through a shut down cycle where the light and everything go off?


Hi,
Most do not... the compressor will shut down, but the fans will stay running...

since you did not list a make and model I cannot say about yours for sure...

When I turn on my computer it runs for a couple of seconds and then stops.


Unplug everything inside the computer, except the motherboard and the front panel power on switch. Power up the computer. If the PS fan continues to run, (power supply doesn't shut down)and the CPU fan runs, then power off the unit and reinstall each device, one at a time, turn the power supply on after each device is installed (and off, before installing the next device).
You can not easily start the power supply if it is not connected to the cpu motherboard.
If the power supply shuts down with only the motherboard attached, then you will need either another power supply, to test the MB, or another MB to test the power supply.

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.

Temp fault


check all the internal fans, if even one does not start, the projector will soon shut down!
every fan has three wires, one is the stop signal, that should stay "low" in most models.
this wire might be white or yellow, the red is + supply/blue or black is -supply(or gnd).

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.
