Computer keeps shuting down


Shuts down when? Right after you boot it up? Or does it run a while then shut down?
If it shuts down after it has run for a while then the computer is probably running hot. Either the CPU Fan is not working or the Thermal Paste has dried up or is too thin to keep the CPU Cool. To prove it is running hot, let the computer sit for a while then boot it up. Once it boots up use it until it shuts down and immediately try to boot it up. If it does not boot up that means it's running hot. But if you let it cool off then try booting up you will be successful.

My computer recently got a fake Microsoft security virus, the whole thing is shut down to the point I cannot access any programs that could delete it. It won't even let me get on the internet! And now,...


Boot into safe mode.
F8 before Windows boots.

Scan with Combofix for example.

Scan system files (OS cd needed)

To use the System File Checker, follow these steps:
  1. Close any open programs on your Desktop

  2. Click on the Start button

  3. Click Run

  4. Type this command in the Run box: SFC /SCANNOW

  5. Click the "OK" button

Computer shut on and off repeats over and over again


When you say "funny noise", you could have a hard drive failing. On Dells, if you push F12 while booting, you should get a boot menu. Diagnostics should be in that menu, it's a Dell feature. Anyway go in there and run some tests and see if it reveals anything. If the tests pass cleanly, you may just have a Windows problem.

Toshiba Satellite A55-S306 doesn't come out of hybernation


Turn the PC on, when it is booting up, keep hitting "F8" until windows boot options come up, choose "Safe Mode" and then once it boots into safe mode fully, go to the start menu and choose shut down. After it shuts down, turn it back on and it should go back into normal mode. From now on, don't use Hibernate, its buggy and has been since XP.

I cannot even log into my laptop it seems to be locked


Keep your finger on the powerbutton for at least 10 seconds that should shut it off.

If that doesn't do it remove the battery from the bottom.

Now try restarting it and see what happens.

Won't complete booting


Sounds like at the very least, the hard drive is. This is common when a file required by the OS is corrupted, and the OS tries to not damage data so it restarts or shuts down.

Gateway lcd monitor


First, narrow down the problem to either the monitor, or to the computer itself. Either try the monitor on a spare or friend's computer, or try a known working monitor on your computer. I'd guess your computer is where the issue is at- it isn't booting the Operating System (MS XP or whatever O/S is present on the hard disk. if the computer is the issue, try booting from the CD which came with the computer, (assuming you have that CD). Or, you could see if some computer tech savvy person has a bootable floppy diskette. Basically a "no-boot" problem, can point to a number of problems: hardware issue (bad hard drive etc.), or an operating system problem.
