My computer starts up and then shuts down after seconds what do I do in order to swipe the whole thing out and fix it


This isnt a vehicle question but. If its a lap top then pull the battery and plug it in. If it stays running with no battery then the battery is junk. If it still shuts down then listen for the fan to come on during start up. If you dont hear the fan tbe computer may be getting hot teal fast and shutting down. Take it to a qualified tech to have it replaced before you fry tbe mother board

Starts up then shuts down within 3-5 seconds


is this happening everytime you start the machine? What is being displayed on the screen? Do you hear the fans running when you press the power button? Do you hear the disc drive running? Do you hear the cd drive click once and the light on the cd drive door come on for a second or two? Is it posting anything on the screen during the boot process? Is it getting to the actual windows desktop which is where you see your icons? Computers shut down for a reason. Either some piece of hardware is not working such as a fan, or some hardware is faulty (such as the memory, cpu or motherboard), or some software issue or a virus has taken over.

I won't shut down my laptop


Why is it exactly that you wont shut off your lap top...? I've actually hear that leaving you lap top on constantly is ok for the unit. I myself constantly leave my lap top on all the time and have had no issues with it. Hope this helps Shannon

When I push the power button to power the lap top up the light display that says outlet power changes from green to amber and the laptop will not power up.


try removing the battery and just use plug power only if it boots normally then change the battery and the change the power supply unit as well I would just start with the power supply unit first then see if the battery charges up if not the battery is bad replace it. Now if the computer will not start with the battery removed then you have a power supply issue.
Change and replace it. Hope this helps. Also when computer lap top get hot they will shut down to protect the computer wait and let it cool down then try to restart your computer. If this does work and the lap top restarts normally get a fan cooler that is USB powered and the lap top sits on top of it. Also make sure the fan is running and is not stopped. Clean and dust it out once in awhile. I hope this assists you with your problem. John

My laptop won't start... please


Not sure but it sounds like the hard drive is causing the problem. Lap tops are set up so that any problems with them they shut down, and a bad hard drive will shut you down the way you are describing. The only test i know for this is to remove the hard drive and see if you can get the computer to at least boot. If you can with no hard drive then it usually means the drive has failed. Not sure if this will help, but hope it helps.

I have a toshiba satellite laptop the screen is black


Shutting the computer down could be done by holding the Power Switch down for 10 seconds, rather than unplug/no battery "solution". A blank screen is more often than not caused by the failure of the screen's backlight. Plugging an external monitor in the ext monitor port would verify the computer still works, and I am sure it does.

THE SCREEN ON MY LAP TOP IS DANCING


It's probably a virus. Try doing an emergency scan. If you have Nortan AntiVirus it'll be easier. So try doing that and I hope it helps...
Good luck
