Starts to boot up then boots back down.

Its not the greatest machine by far the battery is a bit poor, but it has always booted up, now it starts to boot up, then gets to a certain point and just boots back down, and starts again.

Any help would be welcomed.

Install your Mac OS disc in your machine and start it up while holding down the C key. The machine will boot off of the disc and then you can access the top menu . Look under utilities and launch Disk Utility. Do a repair to your hard drive and then quit the program.
Before you restart, be sure to select your OS on your hard drive as the startup disk via the same menu.
See if this eliminates your problem.

You have to go to the BIOS and set the boot menu to boot from CD or DVD first boot second will be Hard Drive click F10 and save this. Making sure to have the reboot disc in the drive restart machine. Press any key to boot from CD or DVD will appear do this this should start the process of recovery. Follow the on screen instructions. Also it may behoove you to do a go back process which is in Safe Mode hit F8 key and choose safe mode when booting up. Go to start menu-go to run type in MSCONFIG go there and you will see a box come up with a bunch of options.
Once there choose launch system restore or whatever it says to do a system restore once there go to an earlier time it will reload your computer to an earlier time. If you set this up and allowed it. By default it is usually allowed to cache earlier dates go back as far as you can. Select this option and allow the computer to go back. If this does not work then just do a restore and be done with it.
Last resort get the free Hirens Boot CD can be had at btjunkie.org you will also need utorrent to download these torrent files once you install utorrent go back to btjunkie.org and get the Hirens Boot CD by typing in the search box, download this and make a disc of it. Place the disk in the drive and it will boot to the program click on format hard drive or hard drive options click where it says format hard drive. Delete all partitions and select C drive as the primary the one with the largest space always. I hope this assisted you with this issue. John

The computer is not booting up and if it comes on it automatically shuts off.


It is likely due to overheating. I would leave your system for a bit to allow it to cool down. When you start it, prop it up from a flat surface a bit simply by putting a pen or a small article to allow for some airflow under it.
Usually a laptop not booting and shutting itself down is related to a hardware failure, low battery, or safety shutdown in case of over heating.
Give this a go, Let the laptop sit for 10-15min while off. Then unplug the laptop and remove the battery. Then plug it back in without the battery. See if it boots. If it is still shutting off. Contact the manufacturer for support or a local technician. -Ravi Shanghavi

Toshiba m35x-s349 turns on but does not boot


check battery power. Lots of times laptops won't boot if the battery has gone down to low. Probably has just enough charge to turn the machine on but not enough charge to boot the machine.

Powerbook Aluminum G4 15 booting up problem


The backup battery connects directly to the logic board. From the symptoms you are describing (rather clearly, thank you), it seems apparent that your logic board may be faulty.
There are two more things you can try.
1) Reset Open Firmware: Unplug-replug your backup battery, then boot the system holding down Control-Option-O-F. Your machine will boot into Open Firmware. Type the following commands, pressing the "return" key at the end of each one:
reset-nvram
set-defaults
reset all
Your machine should restart at this point. If it starts successfully, you should be done. Otherwise,
2) Reset the Power Manager. Turn the machine all the way off (no power). Simultaneously press Shift-Control-Option-power button, then release. (Do not press the fn (Function) key during this sequence.) Wait five seconds, then press the power button. If it starts successfully, you should be done. Otherwise, you will need to see a man about a logic board, which is probably not a cost-effective repair on a 1GHz G4.

Whirlpool Duet washer leaking during clean washer cycle


the highest water fill cycle for your waher is the clean cycle.it will fill up with 2x the normal amount of water in this cycle than any other.look for a cut or wrinkle in your door boot(grey rubber outer ring that seals between door and boot)if you find one,only fix would be to replace door boot.also clean inner door glass that comes in contact with door boot ring,any hard water build up or sediment(dog,cat or human hair)will break the seal and allow it to leak.good luck

I have seen this problem before, after booting to the external monitor go into the display settings and try setting the resolution to 1024 X 768 and the color settng to 16 bit or preferably 32 bit. If you can do this, then shut down the laptop remove the external monitor and try booting on the LCD display. BPCS
