Question about EliteGroup GeForce 6100SM-M Motherboard

1 Answer

Randomly shuts off

There doesn't seem to be any one thing that makes it shut off. I can be doing something, or I can be doing nothing & it'll just die as if I'd pulled the power cord. Any suggestions?

I'm running Windows Vista 32 bit, AMD 64x2 5600 processor, Geforce 8600 GTS video card, 2 GB RAM, a 400w power supply, and my temp according to Core Temp is usually between 30c-50c.

04 gmc envoy randomly shuts off. it does it when your at a stop light and about to proceed. it seems like it wants to stall (its a automatic) but either will shut off or it'll proceed but really slow....

Read the codes off of the engine computer with an obd-II scanner. If it's missing and shaking as badly as you say, then there probably are codes stored in the engine computer that can point you in the right direction.

Acer Aspire 5742, Completely Shuts off, error free, randomly.

If your computer is shutting off randomly, there could be a multitude of issues. Most of the issues are hardware related.

1. If you're able to use your computer for a little while, and it randomly shuts off, it could be one of a few things.

a. Overheating processor: You may need to replace your processor, or clean out the inside of the computer.
b. Fans not working: Your fans could be disabled, and keeping the computer from receiving cooling which can overheat the processor as well as other vital components.
c. Dying battery: The battery in your laptop may be going bad, and could need replacement. Does it charge completely, or does it only fill up partially after a long period of charging? If it's the latter, you will need to replace it.
d. Dying hard drive: While this one isn't as likely, and usually doesn't cause the computer to shut off instantly, it's still something to consider.

2: If your computer shuts off before the desktop even loads, it's most likely a hardware problem.

a. Dying battery: Again, your battery may be dying, try removing it and keeping the laptop plugged in when you turn it on.
b. Broken hard drive: Your hard drive may be broken, try finding an external hard drive with Linux or another operating system installed on it, and go into the BIOS when your computer first starts up. Find the "Boot devices" option, and tell it to make the primary boot device the external device with the operating system installed on it. If the computer starts up fine after that, you may need to re-install your old operating system, or replace your hard drive.

I left my iPod in a bag with a wet swimsuit . now it's messed . The top volume button won't work , the volume changes on it's own then the iCon stays on it and it randomly shuts off . What's wrong and can...

Unfortunately the chances are its suffered from moisture damage.... Apple will have to fix it, its unlikely you'll be able to go to a 3rd party store, or they may not do it correctly. I have a suggestion though. Shut it off. Don't turn it back on. Leave it in a hot press for 72 hours. That'll let it dry out fully. Then fully charge and turn on. If that doesn't work its probably fried. After something suffers moisture damage you shouldn't turn it on until its fully dried out or it gets worse. Sorry man.

Sometimes my jeep sputters like it is running out of gas but it isnt then when i press the gas all the way to the floor it does nothing ,and then it dies if i shut it off and crank it back up it its fine...

The first thing I check for this sort of symptom is the fuel filter. Sometimes you get a bad load of gas with sand or other stuff in it, and it clogs the filter. When you try to accelerate, it either fails to respond or dies. When the engine is off, some of the material seems to fall off and it will run again for a while. It's the cheapest thing to replace, and usually easy to do, so it never hurts to try.
