I suspect if its starting the boot process then shutting down.
Problem may be
1: Virus or Spy ware.
2: Two antivirus programs installed. I
3 Installation improper.
4 Or hard drive or bad Memory ( Memory Failed)
5: Mother Board damaged

Why doesn't my Dell XPS 8500 boot up?


hold the power button in for a count of 8 and it should shut all the way down. Then try and turn it back on

If it still does not boot, do you still have a warranty? Could be motherboard gone bad. Usually if it is memory or video your will hear beeps

Fan on Dell M5030 Starts on startup and then shuts down but computer continues to boot


Lots of fans are variable speed. Meaning they spin faster when the computer is hot and slow down when not. It's most likely spinning down. If the fan was bad the computer will either shutdown or generate an error during BIOS and halt the boot process.

Inspiron 530 desktop--- computer boots up, runs just fine for a while, then monitor displays gabled multi-colored patterns, then evetually shuts down.


What is shutting down, the monitor or the computer. Check the power light on each for proper diagnosis. You either have a bad monitor, a bad video display card or a bad PC, specifically a power supply or motherboard. This is a classic symptom of something getting too hot and shutting down. One way to test the monitor is to plug it into something else for an a period of time and test. If you're PC is shutting off, try unplugging unnecessary peripherals, i.e. CD/DVD drives, floppy drives, external USB peripherals, etc. Start with just the video adapter, keyboard, mouse and monitor. Let us know what is shutting off, for further diagnosis.

Dell inspiron 1300 starts up and then immediadly shuts down


Sounds like a bad motherboard. Does the fan spin up at very high rpms before shutting off?

Inspiron 6000 starts to boot but then shuts down after only 10 seconds. New Battery, power supply measures ok. Caps lite is on.


Try reseating the RAM memory modules, see if any change.
If no change, remove, battery, Drives, Wireless card and RAM, see if the system will run longer or give an error code. If something changes, add 1 RAM module and try again. If the system runs, then add items back one at a time until you determine the faulty item.
If the system issue doesn't change, odds are a motherboard problem. Motherboard are about $100 on Ebay

Could also be a virus, some viruses shut the computer down. Try downloading avg free edition from http://free.avg.com
Otherwise you have to take it apart to check the fan etc

Dell Inspiron 1000 will not boot up.


Greetings,

The symptoms you described are normally common motherboard failure signs.

Try removing the ram and hard drive from the computer and then try booting the computer.
