If your case fan uses a 4pin molex instead of a three pin which pluges in to the board. Than that's why it only shuts off when the system is powered down.

P8b75-mle will not shut down


Hit control alt delete and look and see how many running programs you, most of the time it is a background running program that locks up the shut down process. On average you should have only 60 to 70 programs running. Reduce these and your start ups and shut downs will be much quicker, there are third party software that can enable you to do this with ease, or you can search google .

Thermal shut down on Gateway 500r

I have a ET1831 and after about 30 minutes the machine shuts off. All programs run fine. Do I have a power supply problem or a mother board problem? How best do I diagnose the problem?


It could be a Power Supply issue or Hot chip condition on the motherboard due to lack of Air Flow for cooling or a problem with the motherboard. The first things I would check for are a Virus and Air Flow. There are a couple of Viruses out there that will do this. Get a can of compressed air and open the case and clear all the air channels and blow the dust out of it. With the case open turn the computer on and make sure the Cooling fan on the CPU works and the fan in the Power supply is working. If the CPU fan is not working replace it. Same with the the power supply fan, you would have to replace the complete power supply if that one is faulty. If your Video card has a fan on it make sure that is working as well. You maybe able to replace that fan if it's not but you may have to replace the video card if it isn't working. That would present you with a situation that the Video shuts down but the rest of the computer stays running. You will also want to check your power saver options and make sure you don't have them set to shut the computer down on time. I use screen savers and Hibernate settings to protect the screen from burn in but rarely actually shut down my computers.

In between doors on side by side fridge is hot. Whirlpool GD5phax


you need to fix the fan down by compressor as it cools the cond coils and causes proper orp of cmpressor . if it not running the comp runs too hot and does not pump the refergent and may be shutting of on overload . the high tempt between the doors will be less with fan working . but some warm tempt is normal .. mm

Boots up fine runs for awhile then shuts down for no apparant reason.


Most times if computer runs and then shuts down it is mother board over heating. It shuts down to prevent damage. Try to clean you mother board fan and also make sure no dust in the exhaust part on the bottom of the computer. You can clean it with air can for computers just make sure you hold it upright because if it is sideways or upside down it will put out freezing air and it can damage you computer. Hope this helps.

GE GSH25JSTASS doesn't freeze or cool


Ok, first off, replace all thermistors, freezer (2) & refrig (2). Then check that evap fan is working properly. This is a DC volt fan, not ac volt. There have been some issues with these, I would replace if problem continues.

How this box works, main control board monitors everything from how many times doors are open, how long they are open, how and when I/M drops ice, etc.... Every so many hours, depending on how many times the doors are open, you got ice thru the door, etc... it will shut down and go into defrost mode. When it is time for defrost mode it will run refrig into a "sub zero" state, shut down evap fan, run deeper into sub zero effect, shut down compressor when the thermistors say it's cold enough, turn on defrost heater that melts any frost in evap, then turn compressor back on for a few minutes, then turn evap fan back on. Most techs think that the mother board is defective when in fact the thermistors are not measuring temps correctly within the whole unit. If the thermistor say, hey mother board I'm only 60 degrees in the freezer, then it will keep running the compressor trying to get to zero or -1 or till the darn thing freezes up and stops moving air.

Find another tech to work on your unit, one that has some electronics background and/or computer knowledge. It takes a electronics & computer degree to work on these units and understand how they function.

Doors, some of the new frigs have magnetic door gaskets, if it is not staying shut, replace door gaskets. If door stay open or is leaking air (especially around ice shoot) it can cause some really weird stuff to occur, like thermistors saying I'm cold at the inlet to evap but not at the top of evap and mother board will try to correct it's self by running longer. One other thing about door gaskets, if the drain plug in the evap area is frozen or plugged up, doors won't shut properly and stay shut.

For one thousand dollars, I'll come to Florida and fix for you, 200 to fix refrig and the rest for a good time at Disney World (LOL). Good luck. Contact GE for repair on this unit if you can't get good results from your repairman. Their people, like me, go thru extensive training on these boxes. You can thank our goverment for the energy codes that have gone into effect over the years requiring mfgs to have to keep the cost of running these refrigs down as low as possible, the only way to do this was to computerize these boxes. Good luck

My cooling fan on my mother board start making noise now as soon as you power up the pc it shuts down could it over heat that quickly or did it ruin mother board?


It is possible to burn out a processor in a matter of seconds without cooling. Please do not attempt to restart the unit, until you replace the colling fan on the processor. If it's not the processor fan/heatsink, you may have lucked out, but don't restart it till you replace the fans.The fan that sits on your cpu is the main concern, if it's one of the others the board should shut down automatically in order to stop this scenario from occuring.

Stand by


Standby does not turn off the computer. It reduces power consumption but does not turn the CPU off or the power supply. Because the cpu is still on the cooling fan stays on to cool it. If you want it to turn the fan off or be silent I suggest using hibernate or shutting it down completely.

XPS 600 serious Boot up Problems!


sounds to me like the fan is on the way out ,and if the cpu gets too hot the pc will shut down.
check that the fan is not obstructed,clean it if it is full of dust, replace it if it is not working as it should.

also listen to the power supply fan, is it working ok,this could cause the same type of problem but for different reasons.

good luck
