You are going to have to test several things when trying to diagnose the problem.

1) It could be *********** Board. Most computer shops will have a test cpu or each particular motherboard cpu style, this allows them to test your CPU and Mother Board.

2) Yes, It could be your power supply. Power supplies do go out randomly, normally a common problem is people forget to upgrade the power supply when they upgrade, say, a video card. Depending on the size of the power consumption of the new hardware the person would need to upgrade the power supply, other wise they end up having the same problem.

3) Have you upgraded your RAM lately? If so then double check to be sure *********** Board can handle it, otherwise it will reset like it is.

Well I hope this helps.

I have a hp pavilion dv1000 laptop and it randomly hibernates


Go to the control panel > Power Options, click on the hibernation tab and uncheck it. Click on apply and ok. Hibernation can damage older HP systems such as the DV1000 that is running XP, make sure it is turned off and also go through the power settings and change the setting for closing the lid on the laptop. Change the setting to "Do Nothing". This will keep your system from getting corrupt.

Hp dv5190us randomly restarts


If the laptop is restarting and you mention that you did a system restore so it is definetly not a software issue. It seems to be a hardware malfunction either on the motherboard or the power supply unit inside the laptop.Please contact HP .. Good luck.

2005 HP M7170N WILL NOT TURN ON. GREEN LIGHT ON POWER SUPPLY IS ON. THERE WERE NO PRIOR SYMPTOMS. CHECKED POWER BUTTON WIRE IS PLUGGED INTO MB.


It sounds like you have a hardware failure more than likely it is your motherboard and possibly your ram that have to be replaced. Life expectancy for almost all computer hardware is 3-5 years depending on how often it is used. If everything is securely connected as you say it is, your first step is going to be to replace the motherboard.

Is the LOGISYS Computer PS575XBK 575W ATX12V SLI Ready Power Supply compatible with my HP m7170n desktop computer?


Hi,

Yes this supply is compatible with your case, the only worry is that they have some mixed reviews. given you cannot run SLI in that case though I would think it should do fine.

Hope this helps FixYa,

I have an hp pavilion laptop (intel P4 w/896 mb RAM and radeon 9000 graphics).It shuts down at random times. I don't mean it locks up, it shuts down completely and will not come back on for several hours.


This problem can be cause by overheating of your computer or thsi is a problem with the power supply of the computer, first thing that you can do here is to try adding a coller like CPU fans to make sure it wont overheat, but if after that still have the same problem a power supply repalcement is already needed....

Hello,

That is a power failure, please try change the power supply..or test the voltage in the wall outlet if it rate 220 volts if not then power supply is the main causes. Sometimes the software's got conflict due to virus infections.
