    I have a NetVista 71G (8317) desktop that similarly switches off after about 20 seconds. The time it takes for this to happen has reduced slowly over the past few weeks. Now, after windows (XP Home) has fully booted it stays on for about 20 seconds. I do not have to start any apps. I just sit and watch it switch off! Help!

Hi. If the PC wont switch on, try this simple trick - remove the power cord from the pc. Press and hold the power button on the pc unit for 20 seconds (this will totally discharge the power supply). Try reconnecting the power lead and switching on. If this works - happy days, if not then it could be either a bad Power supply or even a dead Motherboard.

Where is the volume knob?

Is there a power cord? If not the speakers just adjust volume from your computers volume control.

My Advent 5611 freezes after about 20 mins after switching it on. I can't do anything apart from switching it off and on again. How can this be fixed? Everything on the laptop is standard, nothing has been...

This is a result of your system overheating,there are a
number of reasons for this one is that there may be
dust blocking the airway to the prossesor the
second is that your fan may not be working if so it will need replaced.

Ac in socket keeps switching laptop off


Either you have a dodgy notebook PSU or the DC socket has a dry joint which will either need to be soldered or replaced. Either way i would recommend getting this seen to before you short the motherboard out.

Unless you are 100% confident with a soldering iron i would not attempt this yourself and instead take to a specialist.
