Sounds like my Acer tower recently. Would lose display but HDD and fan/leds. etc were all happily humming along. Could do hard reboot and maybe no worries for hours or even a day before it would do it again and then maybe several times in a few hours. Issue turned out to be a bad stick of RAM. I got both replaced and no repeats in over a week. A friend talked about a memory tester called ORTHOS. Might be a free online tool? Not sure. Overclockers use it a lot from the looks of a quick GOOGLE I just did.

My aurora which recently had its motherboard replaced has been shutting down seemingly at random. Sometimes when I'm watching hulu or playing a game.


It's probably heat-related -- start the Windows Task Manager, and minimize it, and then view HULU -- the CPU-meter probably will rise to 100% and stay there. The minimized Task Manager will be a small icon on the bottom-right of your monitor.

The "harder" the CPU works, the hotter it gets.

Be sure that the warm air leaving the back of your tower has some place to go -- don't back your tower directly into a wall, or put it tightly into a computer-desk.

It sounds like you have a board that is not booting at all. Remove everything from the board except the system RAM and CPU and switch it on. If it boots now, shut it down and then replace each individual item one at a time, booting the machine after each item is refitted/connected until you fit something that prevents the machine from booting. Pay special attention to system RAM sticks by removing them/it and refitting it as bad connections in the RAM socket can also cause a boot failure but removing and refitting the sticks usually cures this issue.

Melting plastic smell/ computer slow and shuts down after about 15mins


Hi there.
The reason you can smell burning plastic and why its shutting down after a short time is because its overheating. This can be caused by a build up of dust on the CPU fan, overtime with dust build up computers struggle to keep themselves cool and tend to shut down unexpectedly, chances are this is the problem with your machine, my advice would be to remove the power cord, open the side panel of the computer and clean all the dust away from inside the tower, do this with a soft, clean paintbrush making sure you remove the dust carefully and gently, also make sure the CPU fan and the heat sync behind it is completely free of dust or any other foreign objects.
Once you are happy that its clear of dust, close or return the side panel, plug in the power cord and turn the PC on, you may find that the PC will stay on for longer with the smell dramatically reduced.

Please post back with the results and thanks for using FixYa!!

My computer keeps shutting itself down without warning. I have live one care which prevents virus to pass through the system but the computer will stay on for a little while then shut off then stays on for...


It is possible this is caused by overheating. Check the power supply fan first, probably in the back of your computer tower. Do you feel any airflow? If so, the next thing to check would be the CPU fan/heat sink. Many motherboards have a temperature gauge software nowadays, or you can download one for free online to see how hot your CPU is running.

2 Possible solutions:
  1. Replace Power Supply if there is no air flow.
  2. Put in a new Processor Heatsink/Fan

Emachine t5026 not power on. replaced psu.


I would test the memory. Also I think some computers will shut down if the fan on top of the CPU quits working. Or maybe one of the other fans or the Hard Drive quit and is drawing too much juice causing the PSU to shut down. It sounds like something may be grounding.

Computer shutting down


do you get a blue screen when it shuts off? or... does the monitor just turn off, or does the computer tower and everything turn off?

If everything turns off,(like a normal shutdown) try checking your power options in the control panel, to make sure there aren't some power saving settings that are causing it.

If its a blue screen type issue, then there may be a hardware problem that is causing the computer to shutdown to avoid further damage to the system.
