Sometimes it happens battery charging, If you can off the outlet and your lap top automatically off thats the time you will change your battery.

Dell OptiPlex GX110 hangs at post


Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive


Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

even something as small as a faulty electrical extension or fan lead can cause you problems

computers need all of the data and electrical current to travel through every working device and to have an end to be able work properly


motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail

check all electrical power input and extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working


also check the Cmos battery and computer RAM modules make sure they are securely seated with no dust built up or in the sockets on some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in

check you CPU make sure its securely seated and has thermal grease

hope it helps

You tube videos start and stop


The videos need some time to buffer/load.

This is indicated by the pale red line that is usually in front of the play bar which is the darker red bar.

Pause the video for around a minute for the video to buffer.
Then push play button.

You may need to set the detail down to 240p to increase the speed at which it loads.

Press DEL on startup and select "last best known config that worked" If that doesn't work you have probably corrupted the Win registry.Will need to take back to store, beware that if its a software fault you will have to pay and may lose all your data n the HDD!!!

My PC will only turn on for 1 second and then shuts down. I've disconnected everything such as fans, hard drives. I put on a new power supply box and CMOS battery. Can the switch in the front be faulty?


Is your computer plugged-in to a power bar?

If yes kindly disconnect it from there, then try to plug-in your computer's power cable directly to a wall outlet, you can also try other wall outlets, if this one will still not work, there might be a problem already with the motherboard.

I also encountered this problem before.

It could be one of three things. It could be a bad battery, a bad ac adapter, or the recharging circuitry could be bad. I would try pulling the battery out, and see if the laptop will startup and run strictly off of the ac adapter. If that does not work, you have a bad ac adapter. If that works, and the battery has any charge left, try running it strictly on the battery. If it doesnt work, you have a bad battery. If it does work, the circuitry is bad and you will probably need new motherboard. One other thing you can check is where the ac adapter and battery plug into the laptop, and make sure there is no corrosion that could be causing a short.
