Hello babydluv06

If U look in the control panel - power options, U will see options that may be confussed with turning off. If after reading these options the pc is actually turning off, then look into a overheating problem. The pc BIOS has settings to shut down the pc if the temp exceeds a preset point. If this is the problem, then

Shut the pc off and unplug.
Open the case and vacuum out the dirt and MB. Be sure to blow or **** the dirt out of the cpu fan. Use plastic nozzle and be careful not to displace and connections. While U are there, gently push connectors together to make sure they have not come loose.
Plug your pc in and insure that all the fans work.
Unplug and reassemble the case.

Plug in and try.

Good Luck

When I am downloading a film...I leave my PC on but when I go back to it after about half an hour it has switched itself off stoopping my download can you help please ty mike


There is little info on your problem but I think you mean the screen went black while downloading a film. Normally computer monitors turn themselves off (dormant) to save energy and the life of the monitor's screen if not used for 10 or 30 minutes, depending on the settings, but the download just keeps going. Mine is set to 10 minutes. All you have to do is disturb the Mouse and see if the monitor screen switches itself on. There is another power saving option, and that is the Computer itself. If the computer is not used for one hour, it too goes dormant, but can also be set to switch itself completely off after the download is completed. However, if a computer is left on for over an hour, it can switch itself off to save energy and the computer's own wear and tear. It all depends on the computer hardware and the settings. If it is hardware controlled, then it may or may not switch itself off but it still goes dormant. Or it can be set to whatever you wish it to do, stay on all the time, go dormant after a set time or switch off if there is no prolonged activity.

This desktop dell vostro turns itself on and off without the button being pushed. sometimes it makes it to windows, and seems to run just fine, then it goes to shutdown by itself... then turns itself back...


Well in the system Bios or setup there are options where you can have the computer turn itself on automatically at a certain time. However, the fact that yours is turning itself on and off seems to indicate that it is either over heating or it is running into an issue when trying to boot and it keeps recycling the boot process. There is an option that you can set that will turn off automatic restart on boot. Turn off the computer and then turn it on and start hitting F8 repeatedly until you see Safe Mode as an option. Scroll down through the options and you will probably see an option that lets you stop automatic restart on boot, and take it if it is there. This will allow you to actually see the error message that is causing your computer to reboot itself.

I have a HP Z400 with windows xp sp3 installed. Recently the computer has been randomly turning itself off twice a day with no error messages. The computer can be turned back on right away and nothing...


I would update the drivers, check with the chip set manufacturer for updated firmware and run diagnostics on the RAM and hard drive.
That should cover most angles.

Power supply turns itself off


could be another part in the computer shutting it off. Try unplugging all your drives and then put them in one at a time and reboot every time to see if it still shuts off.

Pc keeps turning itself off


I would suggest you first disconnect the computer and give it a good cleaning inside. It may just have so much dust inside that it is overheating. Here are detailed instructions on how to do it. http://www.directron.com/cleaning.html

My pc turns off itself


Check your cpu heatsink/fan. This sounds like an overheating problem as the cpu has a sensor that will automatically shut down your system to prevent it from frying. Hope this helps.

Computer keeps turning itself off


Does it reboot or just switch itself off? If it reboots it could be many problems with many solutions.
Does your computer feel hot? Check the temperature with a download from http://majorgeeks.com/download.php?det=311 this should monitor your boards temperature once loaded.
