It might be the button on your system case mine does the same thing i believe it can be a security saftey feature that when the fans stop its safe to restart and some cases come with a back case switch sometimes this needs to flipped to ensure a start now these are a couple ideas the other is a loose lead power button wire is connected wrong inside on mother board or is loose check by opening and looking

    heres a quick suggestion you might have already tried but its a way to actually find out if the power supply is the main colprit

    the actual power plug connected to the power supply disconnect there back of comp

    this is what they call a battery purge even for like 30 seconds it has built in battery not worth much but keeps the memmory intak by little slider when power button cord is put in this releases all the data to be reinputed into comp its a saftey feature

    2 things we will look at seeing that your comp ran before with no problems

    1 the power supply

    most comps come with a basic 400 to 600 power rating for there power supply the smaller basic supply's that came factory where out faster

    better longer lasting power supply are the beafy 800's these are better quality supplies

    if your system is basic its probably just wore the power supply out the electrical charge just helped tell you that power supply time was up simple fix replacement power supply

    2 the actual power cord

    this one is easy just pull the power cord look on it to see if there is any scorching any where on it some cords are rated some arent they tend to like to burn them selfs up inside there protective jackets

    if scorched replace cord this is something most folks dont look at as a source of the of why a comp stops functioning

Shuts down


This is a typical symptom of a failing power supply. Replace your power supply and see if the problem still persists.

Please notify me should you need any further assistance.

I have a K8V-MX motherboard. Recently, when i start the computer i will sometimes get no video, sometimes i will. When it doesn't work the monitor just goes into power save mode. Everytime everything...

that happend to me aswell, coz the asus motherboard are like that.
1st unplug all the cabels from the mother board like, harddrive ID and Cd-room ID, leave just the power supply on and try to start Your computer if it doesnt work take off the cabels of USB or anything else that is connected in the motherboard and try to switch it on, if that doesnt work.

get another graphic card and try with it maybe u have prob with ur graphic card, and if that doesnt work take of the motherboard from ur case and try to switch it on like that coz ASUS MOTHERBOARD are really silly sometimes.
hope that Helps.

My computer starts up but then switches itself off after about 15 secs, both the psu and processor fans seem to be working ok, can you help please ? thanks

Does it restart when it shuts off, or just stays off? If it restarts, then shuts down, then restarts again, it's likely a bad power supply unit.

CPU fan not running?

If the fan isn't running, the computer probably shut itself down because it overheated. Check to make sure the cable going from the fan to the motherboard is securely plugged in. If it is and the fan still doesn't run, you have a faulty fan and need to replace it before you start up your computer again. It's not good to run a computer that hot.
Please rate, thanks!

After shutting down my computer there is no sound

Check your computer if there is a program running called deep freeze. If it is active have it disable re-start and install again your sound driver.

You can try resetting the cmos/bios by unplugging the power cord. Open the case. Find the battery mounted on the board. Use a flat tip screw driver & lift out the battery. (About the size of a quarter). Wait about 15 seconds & pop the battery back onto the board. Plug you're power cord back in & power on the PC. If the system still does not boot, re-check all data & power connections for solid connection. Remove you're memory & firmely reseat. Try again. Still no? Replace power supply.
If the system still does not start & or gives no beeps, no LED lights & no fans power up. Than you're board is most likely dead. (So hate giving out bad news)

Shutting off

i have the same problem...laptop randomly shuts down, but its even done it within a minute of turning it on so i don't think its a heat issue. Sometimes it'll run for over an hour with no problem and never shut down, but other times it randomly shuts down sometimes within a minute, sometimes maybe 10 mins, sometimes 30 mins or more ...its maddening! i'd love to find a solution if anyone's found one. Thanks.
