Problems with dell optiplex sx 270 shutting down again n again


What Operating System are you running - if Windows what version XP, vista, 7? When is it shutting down, after you get into Windows (or other OS) or when trying to boot up? Are there any error messages? New machine or old machine - if old has anything changed? How long does the system stay working before it shutsdown? Is it getting too hot, fans blocked etc?
Lets start by working out if it is the hardware (Dell and devices connected) or the software (Windows etc) It is difficult to know without more details of the problem but here are my best suggestions
Try safe mode - running windows try in safe mode (F8 when starting windows), check error logs
Test the hardware - I would start by disconnecting all external devices, USB disk and other devices. If possible also remove any extra boards you have added to the machine. Even the mouse, USB sticks, anything plugged in (but leave the keyboard). Try this, do you get the same problem.
Test the OS - If you have a live CD such as Ubuntu (can be downloaded from here: http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/download ) then try booting the system from this and see if you still get a problem
Can you run a virus checker on it, how long does the machine stay running. You can try downloading from here from another machine - http://www.avg.com/us-en/avg-rescue-cd-download and making a CD, run the rescue anti virus.

Hi,


If your system is stuck on the Windows Start Screen Screen you can try to boot using Safe Mode by restarting the computer and tapping F8 while it is booting. When it successfully load the Operating system you can disable some startups on the machine. Click on Start then click on RUN, type MSCONFIG on the dialog box located on the lower left of your screen. Then Click on the SERVICES tab. Put a tick on Hide All Microsoft Services then click on Disable All button. Disabling some startup software may fixed the problem. Restart the computer see if it will works. If not then you need to Reinstall the Operating System to your machine.


Thanks for using Fixya.

After (successful) restoration of desktop 838GM, boot-up get stuck at black screen with message that "NTLDR is compressed, press ctrl alt del to restart". When I do the ctrl alt del, computer reboots but...


The startup files are corrupted.You need to put the windows disk in the DVD and make the computer boot off that when it starts up. Booting off the DVD may need to be set in the BIOS if the machine does not do it automatically.
When the window comes up you select install windows.
Second option is repair my computer. Then follow the prompts.

Sony Vaio desktop will not load windows


what your describing is a hard disk failure the computer cant or wont read the hard disk to boot the machine, so it shuts down. Sounds like the hard disk died from a bad virus. and the computer wont run. Best I can do for you is either format the Hard disk and reinstall the operating system or buy a new hard disk. Cheers

Computer shutsdown unexpectedly


It sounds like it is overheating. Take the side off the case and see if your CPU fan works. Replace any fans that do not work or feel loose. And while you are at it, take a can of air and blow the dirt out of it.
Leaving it off overnight will not prevent it from overheating. A computer can overheat in a matter of seconds under the right circumstances.

Dell xps 600 windows booting problem


You would probably do right to reinstall Windows. The bios handed off to Windows long before the splash screen comes up. It is probably a faulty driver or corrupt registry entry. If it was me I would reload Windows
