    Please be more specific?

    How long does the unit stay on before shutting itself off?

    If you just boot it up, and not open any programs, does it stay on? or only shuts down when under a load?

My monitor it turn on and off itself


Try connecting your monitor to a different computer.
If it still turns on and off, the monitor is failing.
It needs to be replaced.

I have a Dell Dimenstion E521 with Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit, that powered itself off last night, booted up fine the first time. Then it powered itself off again within 5 minutes and just kept powering...


There is a setting in BIOS that determines what to do when when the computer receives power after a power failure. There was a time when this was set as power on; computer would power on automatically computer receives power after a power failure. I think this answers your first question.
In Windows you have a setting to 'Automatically restart' when the computer encounters a hardware/software problem. When unattended, the computer can turn on and turn off by itself repeatedly if there is a problem.
The repeated on-off can lead to more errors. If the problem is with the hard disk, it is likely to get damaged further, where finally you cannot go beyond the BIOS settings. In a Dell machine, F2 should be pressed to enter the BIOS setup.
Do not hesitate if you need further help.

Logitech Z-5300 Turns off and on by itself


Hi...
Im not sure if this will help u but check ur Remote's power botton.
Maybe its stuck?
It happened to me before... Was wondering y it turns itself on/off and found out later that the power botton on remote is stuck.
U should hear the clicking sound everytime u turn it on or off.
Otherwise... something else is wrong with the power switch on ur remote.

I Think its a loose connection in electric circuit. Due to vibration in the woofer the connection might be going off. Check the power circuit for any loose connections.

Computer turns itself on


if you can get into bios check and see if there is any type of alarm or auto on set up. If not or if its not that big of a deal just use the switch on the back of the power supply at night. Make sure you shut down your computer before switching this. It will definately keep the computer from turning on by itself.

Turns off and on by itself


Ok so its connected to your pc?
check settings on the monitor itself [if you'restill able to do that]
disconnect all your usb devices restart your computer and try again.

Is it in a cold room ? that might be the problem.

Is it in the same powerbar as your computer ?
I'm not sure but if your power outlet where you connect it is simply looped to the rest that are in use [lazy electrician] then it might turn off because a power shortage.

Good luck
