Why does my computer keep randomly shutting down?


That used to happen to me when too many applications or screens were left open. Turn it off completely after closing everything down. Give it a moment and start it up again. Just remember to ourge it and close things down on occasion, and hopefully that will help you. This was me using a MacAir, and the same in past on other laptops. Good luck.

My computer is very slow, sometimes freezes or won't load and will not shut down


If your laptop computer won't shut itself down even after you select the "Shut Down" option from your "Start" menu, this means that too many programs are still open on your computer. Before Windows can shut down, it needs to manually close all open software, and having too many programs open can severely delay this process or cause Windows to lock up. Closing these programs will help your machine shut down as normal.
b> Right-click on your task bar. Click "Show Windows Stacked." This will maximize all of the program windows for all open programs on your desktop. The windows will be stacked one on top of the other on-screen. Click the "X" box in the corner of the first window to close that particular program. This will reveal the next program window in the stack. Continue to close these programs until you see your desktop wallpaper again. This, coupled with the fact that your task bar should now be cleared of all program icons, indicates that you have successfully closed all program windows. Your laptop will now shut down normally.

The fan is continueslly running and computer takes lot of time to start and shut down. and it is heated also .


The operating system is corrupt in your computer. You can try to run disk cleanup, disk defragmentation, and try to install ccleaner in your computer and clean the old files from your computer. That will be a temporary solution for this.

But if you reformat the operating system in your computer, it will work perfect.

A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down


What windows are you using? This is often caused by a failing service or corrupt program, or damaged system file.
A simple way to fix/replace damaged file. Start button > run > type sfc /scannow
This requires a i386 folder on your computer or a recovery disk or windows installaiton disk.
If this doesn't repair the problem, turn off all programs in startup (start button > run > type msconfig > click on startup tab > disable everything > restart.
If this doesn't fix the problem Determine what program start the problem.
If you need more time click start button > run > type shutdown -a > this will abort the shutdown.

Also run cleanup - open my computer, right click on the c drive, select properties, click disk cleanup

Laptop is not able to boot even in safe mode


Have you done a Disk Cleanup?
This will remove old compressed and temporary files and free up diskspace.
If you have never done this before, it will take a long time to complete (it depends up on the size of the hard disk as well).
Click on My Computer then right click on the C drive and click on Properties then Disk Cleanup. Tick all the boxes to recover the maximum amount of disk space and click OK and YES to perform these actions.
Do not cancel, let it run till it has completed, you may elect to do this when you are not using your omputer.
Disk Cleanup and Defrag should be done once a month to keep the computer running efficiently.

Computer wont boot and i cant get to the start screen to try rec


The computer needs maintenance periodically just like a car needs servicing. The computer generates temporary files when it is running and these consume hard disk space if they are not removed, also these files will slow down your computer.
To service your computer you should at lease once a month do a Disk Cleanup and a Defrag.
The Recycle bin should be emptied periodically.

To do a Disk Cleanup Click on My Computer, then right click on the C Drive, then click on Properties, then Disk Cleanup, then tick all the boxes to recover the hard disk space. (This process could take a few hours depending when it was last done and the size of the hard disk).

To do a Defrag, click on Programs, click on Accessories, then System Tools, then Defrag. then select the C Drive, then start the Defrag.

Again this will take a long time, you may want to start these processes overnight, don't stop them let them run till they finish. The next time you run them, it will not take as long.

Blue screen w/msg: A promblem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.


Youre probably going have to restore it. By doing that if there is a hardware issure it should be obvious by the installation process.

Sometimes a video card can go bad and cause this to happen. If you have another card laying around the house you might want to swap them and see if thats the case.
