My computer monitor keeps shutting off randomly for no reason. It isn't the sleep function I've already checked that and it happens when you are in the middle of using the system. I am running xp


Click Start, click Control Panel, click Performance and Maintenance, and then click Power Options.

Now you will see Power option Properties.
Now see the Settings for normal power scheme.

Under this Make sure that the options like Turn off monitor should be set on never and not on After 5 mins or 15 mins

After changing the settings hit on the apply button and then click on ok.

My computer keeps shutting down randomly. Also when i try to use F10 it will not respond if i try and run error checking the system will crash/shut down or give me a black screen. Basicly it randomly...


Possibilities:
1. overheating, and automatic shutdown.
Check that the fans are working.

2. bad RAM, causing "random" crashing.
On a "good" computer, download the free 'MEMTEST86+' software, and run it, to test your RAM.

3. Leaking capacitors on motherboard, causing "voltage-spikes", leading to "random" errors.

4. Bad disk-drive. Remove the disk-drive.
Connect it as a "slave" drive in another computer,
and run 'CHKDSK' ("Check Disk") to look for problems.

Computer shuts off randomly


i suspect that there could be driver issues on your system that made your computer to shutdown, if you stil changed your power supply, and cd drive, then there might be a problem with the cable that you are using or the slot from your motherboard. If you install the cd drive you should check first from bios if it can be detected. Is your drive an IDE or SATA?

Dell Dimension 9200 keeps shutting down and won't start up


the key issue on the uncommanded shutdown is the POWER LED. If upon shutdown, the power LED Flashes AMBER, then the power supply is suspect.

If no flashing amber indication, then the next think I check is the heatsink (Processor overheating) remove, clean and apply arctic Silver heat transfer paste, see if the issuje goes away

Last but not least if the system is failing to boot, and displays a 3 4 diag LED code, then you may have a RAM module that is bad or may just need reseating. Running diags off of the Rersoujrce CD is something to look at too

I have an asus F3Sv laptop\ 8600m gs card\3gb ram\vista ultimate os\this machine has been fine for a year i play games on it (i know there not made for that)the last month or so it has taken to shutting...


It could be a power problem when playing games.
When a games starts up the graphics card starts to draw more power from the system.
Its could be that your graphics card might need replacing or that your power supply might need upgrading. PC systems, more so gaming systems, like to have alot of power.
Also before this I would try and download the latest graphics card drivers, to see if that helps the problem.
