This type of shutdown problem occurs mainly due to following few reasons, 1) SMPS problem 2) RAM failure 3) Over heated mother board chip(s) or seldom over heated CPU 4) Virus or worm problem or OS problem. 5) Over heated power cords
Do the following steps one by one (to detect the exact source of problem) First replace the CMOS battery, change SMPS, check power cord, run the PC directly (without UPS), remove the data cable from hdd. if it runs well then set the data cable with hdd, if it does not work then definitely there is mother board/cpu problem. And if it creates same problem after fitting the data cable - change the hdd or format hdd and reinstall os. your problem would be solved.

Choose Safe Mode, when at the choice window, to select either Safe Mode Desktop, OR System Restore, chooses system restore and choose a time before you had the "Problem" and follow instructions. This should get you back.

My computer get restarted very often


Perhaps the computer is overheating and shutting down to protect its components. If so, blowing out the inside of the computer and the heatsink fins on the processor could alleviate such a problem.

When a computer shuts down for such protection, it seldom damages the harddrive. If there's a sudden loss of power, a surge of power across the heads could damage the disks as the head drifts across them. Usually a disk check can repair this type of damage. But even with damaged sectors, most data would be recoverable.

When I press standby button the standby led doesn't turn on


First, make sure you have an internet connection. If so, shut down the modem. Pull out the power cable and Coax cable from the back of the modem. Then first put the power cable in, then the coax cable and then turn on the unit. Restart your computer to verify a connection. Then try to press the standby button. If this doesn't work call your internet provider and they can reset the modem remotely for you.
Good Luck.

PC will not start-up after sudden crash


try unplugging the power cable, holding down the power button for 10 seconds, then plugging it back in and turning it back on. also, there should be a set of 4 lights on the back of the dell (A, B, C, and D) for diagnostic purposes. Check them and compare them to your model's light diagnostic look-up on Dell's website.

Power button failure


  • Power Light Shuts Off
    If the power shuts off during game play (even as much as 30 minutes after the system is turned on), then turns off and won't turn back on or the fan isn't working, the system needs repair.
  • Power Light Flashes
    If the power light flashes once when power button is pressed, then turns off and won't turn back on, the system needs repair

    Computer shuts down but does not turn off


    Mchem, you actually have 2 separate issues going on there.
    • Open control panel > open the system control panel
    • in the system properties, click on the advanced tab
    • in the startup and recovery section, click the settings button
    • In the startup and recovery dialog box, under system failure, remove the check from the automatically restart option
    • click ok
    • click ok

    • Open control panel > open power options
    • in the power options properties, select the advanced tab,
    • in the power buttons section,
    • When I press the power button on my computer: click on the drop down menu and select the shut down option
    • click ok
    Sebastien123, you only need to run the first part of this solution.
