This desktop dell vostro turns itself on and off without the button being pushed. sometimes it makes it to windows, and seems to run just fine, then it goes to shutdown by itself... then turns itself back...


Well in the system Bios or setup there are options where you can have the computer turn itself on automatically at a certain time. However, the fact that yours is turning itself on and off seems to indicate that it is either over heating or it is running into an issue when trying to boot and it keeps recycling the boot process. There is an option that you can set that will turn off automatic restart on boot. Turn off the computer and then turn it on and start hitting F8 repeatedly until you see Safe Mode as an option. Scroll down through the options and you will probably see an option that lets you stop automatic restart on boot, and take it if it is there. This will allow you to actually see the error message that is causing your computer to reboot itself.

Thus AVR part of the computer?


AVR = Automatic Voltage Regulation

It is not part of the computer. You buy it separately.

It protects your computer from power surges,
thereby increasing the durability of that equipment overall.

Why we use firewall?


Firewall protects your computer from differnt malicious threats that are hidden and try to enter your machine from back door.

And if your connection disconnects automatically, there is some virus issue, scan your full PC.

And yes you can turn that shutdown off, by typing "shutdown -a" (without quotes)

Computer has viruses which might be why it has a the blue screen


Try entering safe mode and doing the virus scan:
  • Switch on your PC
  • Before the Windows Logo screen appears press F8 to get the startup options menu
  • Chose Safe Mode
  • Once your computer boots, run AVG and let it remove all the viruses. Reboot and it should go into Windows as normal.You might have to rerun the scan a few times to get rid of everything but it should do the job.

Not able to enable password login


Firstly start by opening your run box and enter control userpasswords2

When the user accounts window opens, check the box which states 'Users must enter a username and password to use this computer' and apply the setting.

You will be requested for the username and password of the account you wish to automatically logon as for following reboots of your system.

Right click on the Desktop.
Left click on New > Shortcut.

The -s parameter is used to shut down the computer.

The following two parameters can be used with -s:
-f Forces running applications to close without warning.
-t xx Set timeout for shutdown to xx seconds.

The following command would shut down instantly.
%windir%\System32\shutdown.exe -s -f -t 00
