This is power settings, controlled through the display properties applet.

Right click the desktop, select 'properties' (or personalise in Vista) and the applet or menu depending on your os will open.

My acer all in one z5600 runs for awhile and then shuts down very annoying!!!


Start by cleaning the fan or fans, heatsink, and vents, you may have to open the computer. When you open, you may as well replace the Thermal Paste on the CPU and Graphics Chips. Overheating will cause shut downs, heat sensors set to detect a set temp. will shut down to protect vital components from heat related damage. ALSO, Open Control Panel, Power Options, set to High Performance, open Change plan settings, under Plugged In, set both to Never, open Advanced Power settings, go through thr Advanced settings set Sleep and Hibernate to Never, Adjust to your preference. It's a good idea to Always shut down your computer when not in use, it will last longer and a reboot everyday will reset the machine. Make sure ALL your Windows and Acer Updates are current.

15 to 20 mins screen will go blank and will have A black screen reboot and it will work 10 or 15 mins. RELOADED XP AND THIS DID NOT HELP, SAME PROBLEM


Your Dell OptiPlex GX260 PC Desktop computer is overheating. It is shutting itself down to prevent component failure.

Ensure that the Processor heat sink is clean of dust so sufficient air can flow through the heatsink and cool the processor.

Install additional fans in your computer 120mm are best but 80mm fans will do fine.

Clean the computer chassis of dust as well.

Thanking you

My computer monitor keeps shutting off randomly for no reason. It isn't the sleep function I've already checked that and it happens when you are in the middle of using the system. I am running xp


Click Start, click Control Panel, click Performance and Maintenance, and then click Power Options.

Now you will see Power option Properties.
Now see the Settings for normal power scheme.

Under this Make sure that the options like Turn off monitor should be set on never and not on After 5 mins or 15 mins

After changing the settings hit on the apply button and then click on ok.

Check this link and you will be able to unuderstand more...!

Dell Inspiron 530 randomly shuts down and restarts


Sounds like it could be a virus. Or, a heat buildup problem - are all fans inside machine working? Is the fan inside the power supply operating? Was there any work done inside the computer recently?
If the hdw is all ok, go out and buy yourself a copy of Norton Internet Security 2009 - 1 user lic - $49.99 @ Staples. Do *not* buy any earlier vers. of this software! Install, update it, run computer computer scan - probably will find/remove some/many viruses.

If this helps, please take the time to rate my response to you.
Thanks and good luck.

Window shut down automatically and restart, then shut down again... It happened after a window update yesterday lunch time.


Recovery SettingsOne of the things that is quite different about Windows XP compared to Windows 9x (9x is shorthand for Windows 95, Windows 98, and Windows Me in all their various versions), is that one can control how it responds to certain critical errors—those that cause the infamous Blue Screen of Death (BSOD). In Windows XP, the default setting is for the computer to reboot automatically when a fatal error occurs. If that fatal error only occurs when you're shutting down, the system reboots automatically.
If you haven't changed any of the system failure settings, you should be able to see the error by looking in the Event Log. But a better long-term solution is to turn off the automatic reboot so you can actually see the error when it happens—chances are it will tell you enough about itself to let you troubleshoot further. To change the recovery settings to disable automatic rebooting:
1.
Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
2.
Click the Advanced tab.
3.
Under Startup and Recovery, click Settings to open the Startup and Recovery dialog box.
4.
Clear the Automatically restart check box, and click OK the necessary number of times.
5.
Restart your computer for the settings to take effect.
Now when you go to shut down and a fatal error occurs, you'll at least see it and it won't cause an automatic reboot. You still have to sort out what's causing the problem, but that gets us to the next section quite nicely.

Computer won't start up!


Waiting for 10 or 15 or even 30 minutes doesn't make much sense to me. What kind of flash drive or drives do you use? .. USB Thumb/Pen/Flash drive? .. If your flash drives in "My Computer" folder just happen to disappear, does the computer still working or freezed state? When you say your computer does not want to start on AT ALL.' the machine is not running at all or just that the operating system is not booting up?
