Why does my Dell Inspiron 531 keep shutting down?


cpu maybe overheating, check all fans are working, maybe a fault in motherboard. There should also before an error report log on your operating system which might give you a clue. try putting your hard drive into another pc (as a slave drive) and scan it for viruses before putting it back into your pc as the master again.

Why does My Dell Inspiron 531 computer keep turning off


There are several possible causes for this. Laptops are notorious for dust buildup and overheat issues. Take compressed air and blast out the vent areas. If you can push enough air through the vent leading to the CPU cooling fan, that may clear out dust clogging the fan, preventing proper CPU cooling.

The next possible issue is a threat.

Boot into safe mode - keep repeatidly pressing F8 key as soon as you power on - until a menu comes up. Using keyboard up/down arrow, select "Safe Mode" (with networking if available).

Next, install Malwarebytes (free version) and perform a full scan. Also scan using your current antivirus.

hope this helps,

Danny

Laptop keeps shutting down


There are a few reasons, bad power supply adapter, cooling fan is not working or there is dirt blocking the ports causing it to shut down, battery issues, "remove to verify" the DC jack in the laptop has become intermittent and must be dismantled down to the motherboard level and flipped over for solder touch up.

Security adware virus Multiple virus programs (webroot/norton/etc) have been unable to completly remove this virus. I have a Dell Inspiron 520 with Vista 64-bit. Thanks


If MalwareBytes Anti-Malware tool and Avast anti-virus boot scan do not rid your system of the virus, you may have to remove the hard drive from the infected computer and using an adapter, attach it to another computer such as a laptop or another desktop. The adapter attaches to the hard drive and then uses a usb for the interface. They can be bought at computer stores for around 20 bucks. Once you have attached the infected drive, double click on the "My Computer" icon and then right click on the infected drive icon. Scroll down until you see the selection for either "scan with MalwareBytes" or "Scan with Avast". ONce these scans are complete, replace the hard drive back into the original system. Another great scanner is Super AntiSpyware. All these are free downloads at www.filehippo.com

Is quick heal is better than norton or which antivirus is better in dealing with virus


hi,
any anti-virus is good for your computer as long as it is compatible with the requirements of your operating system (OS). If you have internet and networking connection it is reliable to use norton anti-virus or avira anti-virus..Hope this may help you.

HELP!!! Computer stopped working when anit-virus was installed?????


Assuming you are using windows xp. 1. Boot up into windows safe mode by pressing the "F8" key during boot process. 2. Choose "Safe Mode without networking" on the menu and after entering your desktop a pop-up will appear telling you that you are using windows safe mode, just press "OK" then uninstall Norton Anti-Virus. 3. Shut-down and/or reboot computer. Another alternative would be to boot into safe mode and perform a system restore. If you choose to do this, you still need to uninstall Norton Anti-Virus because a system restore will only fix just system files not programs that were installed. In other words, you will have a partial installation of Norton Anti-Virus in your computer. As to why this happened, could be a compatability issue with the use of Norton and some other program. Good luck.
