Old Gateway system (Desktop), Celeron 800MHz. After being on for 30min to an hour, operating system quits. Monitor displays first "no input" then "power saving" and will indefinitely keep cycling between...


sounds like its an over heating issue,i would check the fans to make sure they are all working and clean.Check that the cpu has thermal paste and that it still good(if its stiff or crumbles when you take off the heatsink it needs to be replaced)also check the memory is seatted all the way in.

When i shut down my pc it shuts down, but the psu stays on, i can turn it off by the button but not by the desktop, any ideas???


Hi, "Sleep" mode or "standby" mode allows your computer to go on standby or sleep until you "wake" it up again. This is a power saving feature which is usually used for a few hours. You can change it to completely shut down everything (including power supply) in power supply options in your control panel. Check out your help section for sleep or standby options. Hank

Stuck dvd tray


There are many ways to eject a DVD. Try this.

Shut down the computer (complete power off, not restart)
Hold down the left button (Apple mouse?)
Push the power button
Keep holding the mouse button down until it either ejects or the grey pinwheel appears. (It's not an instant process)

Usually, eject/F12 will open the drive up. If that does not work try.
Open terminal and use the command "drutil tray eject"

You can also try command-option O + F and type"eject cd"
If none of this works your drive may be bad or the power cord is loose. You will need to open it up or seek professional service.

When I shut down my computer, I think that it is shutting down completly. All lights are off indicating that it is shut down. Then a small blue window will appear and will say "Entering Power Safe Mode"....


If you are turning off your computer by pressing the front panel power button, it is probably just putting Windows to sleep but not shutting the computer off. If your computer has Windows Vista, the default is to hibernate and not shut down even if you shut down through Vista. The "power save" message you see is coming from the monitor, which is letting you know it isn't getting a signal from the computer anymore but the power is still on. Windows will start up again from sleep mode if someone or something moves the mouse or presses a key.

The solution is to make sure the computer is actually shut down. In Vista you can do this by clicking the arrow near the power icon on the Start menu. This gives you the option of shutting down instead of hibernating. In XP, shut the computer down using the start menu shutdown option instead of the computer power button. Then the power will shut down completely.

My Dell Dimension 9200 will not power up reliabily.


what i did was myself i download I8KFanGUI, and turn my fan speed on high, now it has been working without shutting off, plus also I went into the bios and turned "speedstep" on, since i heard windows xp will use it regardless of the bios setting... that may have caused some problems itself causing a switch off. A few times though i could not start the pc, so i opened the case and snapped out the ram (not removing completely, just undoing the insert snaps on 1 side) and start the pc (might've had to unplug and replug a few times to get it to power on)... but i'm guessing i'll rarely have to do that... since i couldnt shut down the pc right 1 time it happened like that. But it is working now!
