    Does it make any difference whether you operate from batteries or the adaptor?

    I would try using it with a fully charged battery (and the adaptor disconnected) to see if it also shuts down without warning or if the circuit that monitors the state of charge is still functioning. If it is, then you should get at least a few seconds warning before the system shuts down.

    If it acts the same regardless of power source, then the problem is probably beyond any help you can get here since it is then likely to be located on the main board.

    If the unit acts differently when changing the source of power, then the adaptor is probably at fault.

    These are prone to failure due to a flaw no one seems to want to avoid and can be fixed in the design for little cost.

I had a similar problem with one of my computers at home. It actually turned out to be a virus on the computer, what I did to fix it was, called the customer support for my system with happened to be a dell and through tedious work they talked me through how to fix it. But it sounds to me like your problem is a virus, possibly a trojan horse that got in there somehow. You want to be careful though because I was told that each time the computer shuts off the virus spreads.
Good Luck,

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they might be faulty make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electical extensions even something as small as an electrical fan and its lead can cause this problem or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs all electrical power and data to continue through every working device and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

make sure your graphics card is securely seated with no dust built up or in the socket

hope this helps you

The mouse appears to be on but the pointer on the screen does not move. The keyboard is still working. The re-set button does not correct the problem. Re-booting the computer does not work.

The same thing happened to me today. Somehow, something uninstalled my setpoint mouse software?!?!
While I was actually using the mouse?!?!
(it just stopped moving all of a sudden)

Don't ask me how/why this happened but I fixed it by unplugging the MX1000--both power and usb connection, plugging in an old serial mouse, rebooting the computer, opening mouse properties, going to the Mouse settings (in Control Panel), clicking the Setpoint tab, telling it to look for an update to the Setpoint program, letting it download and install the program automatically, then unplugging the old serial mouse, plugging in the MX1000 (usb first, them Power) and Voila'! Working as it should once again, even without a reboot. :o)
I love this mouse--perfect size, fast, programmable, accurate, long battery life, Perfect!

I have a dish remote and a toshiba tv. The volume and mute and on and off does not work all of a sudden. Every thing else works. What do you think?

The remote may have reset itself somehow losing the code. You would be better served to replace the remote and reprogram the remote to your TV. Without this the problem may reappear and become increasingly persistent.Thanks for using Fix Ya.
