Have to perform shutdown twice


The problem is the computer is old. You dont need to shut it down twice. You just need to wait patiently the first time.

In any case the computer is way due an upgrade. 2Gb Ram is small fry these days minimum is 4Gb

How much ram can i upgrade my compaq presario? I keep getting conflicting info. The tech at Office Depot said I was maxed out 2Gigs and upgrading any more would shut it down. But I'm reading forums...


One good and easy way to find out for sure how much RAM your computer can hold is to go to WWW.CRUCIAL.COM and run their SCAN MY COMPUTER feature.


This handy utility will scan your hardware configuration and tell you exactly how much RAM you currently have installed and what type it is.


It will also tell you how many RAM slots are fitted on your motherboard and what the maximum memory capacity is for each slot and the total capacity for that motherboard.


If your computer does have room to add more RAM, it will provide you with specific recommendations as to exactly what type and size of RAM stick to get to maximize the memory capacity and performance of your computer.


I hope that was helpful to you, good luck.


Joe.

Computer shuts down unexpectedly


Your Computer is overheating and is shutting down to protect it's self from damage. Your Computer needs to be serviced/cleaned of any and all dust. Pay special attention to the CPU cooler and graphics card. Install as many fans as possible.

probably wrong buss speed or memory configuration. may need to have HP specific RAM. the older machines can be rather picky about 'proprietary' Ram configuration. have an older Compaq laptop that accepts (it fits in the slot), from a Dell laptop, but doesn't like it!
Boot-up shows it as extra Ram, but shut down gives me weird vertical colored bars and i have to shut down manually. you may want go online, if you can, and order HP upgrade Ram for your desktop. perhaps you should replace your system with a newer desktop! sounds rather old to me! no offense- we make do with what we have! my first computer was a commodore vic20- 1981! then a c64- much better for the time-1982- then a c126- 1984. then Dos 1.0, Dos 2.0 Dos 3.0 Dos 6.6 windows 96, etc. even had Pong, Atari, NES (love dragon warrior 4) now p4 toshiba satellite-keyboard sucks!!. laptop. my wife has a desktop 3.2 G CPU 2G Ram .at least i'm portable!
So, consider an upgrade. check E-bay, or Craigslist.com.
what OS are you running? Win98? 2000? ME?

The computer starts then shuts down.


Try booting up the computer pressing whatever key the Dell needs to boot into BIOS (F10, Delete key, F1...pay attention to the screen) and leave the computer on for about 15min. See if it cuts off then. If it does its more than likely your power supply. If it doesn't then its not hardware related.

I need to re down load my drivers on my emachines


Is your "Turn off Computer" shut-down option is greyed out?
Go to power options in Control Panel and click on Advanced tab. Check setting under "Power buttons".

Also check Power schemes on first tab, drop down box making sure "ALWAYS ON" is not selected.

Computer crash/need upgrade


I need more information to properly assess this problem.

What sort of P.C. is this? How old is it? How much R.A.M. (Random Access Memory) do you have? What O.S. (Operating System) are you currently using?

My first "guess" is that this is a lack of R.A.M. Games usually use an awful lot of memory for their graphics functions in their programs.

Today's standard for most computer operations are about 1 G.B. (Gigabyte) of D.D.R. (Double Data Rate) R.A.M. (Random Access Memory)
