Do you get a blue screen when it shuts off? or... does the monitor just turn off, or does the computer tower and everything turn off?

If everything turns off,(like a normal shutdown) try checking your power options in the control panel, to make sure there aren't some power saving settings that are causing it.

If its a blue screen type issue, then there may be a hardware problem that is causing the computer to shutdown to avoid further damage to the system.

it sounds like your motherboard is shutting itself off to protect itself from overheating or some other system failure. you should verify all your fans are running at the correct speed. if it seems like everything is running fine, you can probably turn that off in bios. obviously if there is something wrong with the fans, then you need to replace them. Another options is maybe the processor is getting too hot which is why it's shutting down. open the case and remove the heat sync from the board so you can see the processor. clean the thermal paste off the processor and apply a new generous layer. put the heat sync back on and then try and restart. make sure before you do ANY of this you unplug the computer! good luck and let me know if it works!

SYSTEM TRIES TO COME ON BUT ONLY MAKES IT TO THE CONFIGURING SCREEN THEN IT SHUTS ITSELF BACK DOWN, THIS IS CONTINUOUS. I have a Dell Inspiron 531. Please advise. Thank you, Candace


It sounds like it could be a problem with overheating, which is causing the machine to turn itself off. Try opening the side cover, and carefully cleaning the motherboard and especially the CPU fan - which is the large fan probably on top of a silver box with loads of fins on it. Carefully remove the dust, and see if this clears up the problem. It may be worth removing and refitting the memory whilst the computer is open, to reduce the problems of bad connections between the cards.

If it doesn't fix it, then reply here with any error messages that pop up on the screen.

15 to 20 mins screen will go blank and will have A black screen reboot and it will work 10 or 15 mins. RELOADED XP AND THIS DID NOT HELP, SAME PROBLEM


Your Dell OptiPlex GX260 PC Desktop computer is overheating. It is shutting itself down to prevent component failure.

Ensure that the Processor heat sink is clean of dust so sufficient air can flow through the heatsink and cool the processor.

Install additional fans in your computer 120mm are best but 80mm fans will do fine.

Clean the computer chassis of dust as well.

Thanking you

That sounds like either a graphics problem or more likely a memory problem. Try taking out a couple sticks of RAM or leave just one in and try that.

Dell Inspiron 530 randomly shuts down and restarts


Sounds like it could be a virus. Or, a heat buildup problem - are all fans inside machine working? Is the fan inside the power supply operating? Was there any work done inside the computer recently?
If the hdw is all ok, go out and buy yourself a copy of Norton Internet Security 2009 - 1 user lic - $49.99 @ Staples. Do *not* buy any earlier vers. of this software! Install, update it, run computer computer scan - probably will find/remove some/many viruses.

If this helps, please take the time to rate my response to you.
Thanks and good luck.

power supply fuse maybe trip/busted, you let repair the PSU to repair shop or you replace it with the same wattage rating or higher.
