Computer wont start and when it does it shuts itself down


Sound like a power overload system is kicking in, which means either a bad power supply or shorted circuit else where. Disconnect the DVD, CD, and any other devices to narrow it down. Try another known good power supply. If all this fails, it's going to be a problem with the motherboard, by elimination. There can be an intermittent capacitor or electronic heat sensitive part that's shutting down the computer. There are diagrams and videos on the net that can guide you through possible problems, in case you want to fix it yourself. Google "Intermittent Computer Startup" and you will find some good suggestions. One site is this one:

Good luck.

Power supply turns itself off


could be another part in the computer shutting it off. Try unplugging all your drives and then put them in one at a time and reboot every time to see if it still shuts off.

Computer turns off on its own not all the time but once or twice a week. I turn computer off when Iam not using it


It could be "bad" RAM (Windows crashes, and shuts itself down, to prevent corrupting the files on the disk-drive).

It could be "overheating" (hardware shuts down to prevent combustion).

Monitor turns itself off


hi, you must have enabled power saving options. Thats why your monitor shut down. you can disable, just do the same:

1.Right click on desktop
2.Select properties.
3.Select "ScreenSaver".
4.Select "Power" under Monitor power option.
5.There select "never" from Turn off monitor (drop down menu).

Now your monitor will not turn off automatically.

On shutting down my laptop it gave the message, "installing 1 of 1" do not turn off your computer. It did not turn off all night. I turned it off by using the on/off button then shut it down...


When you start your laptop, press F8. You will get a menu (Normal boot, Reboot...). Choose Last good known configuration (something like that).

Computer keeps shutting off


Hi,
The problem more likely seems with the power supply or the front power button. Donnot try switch on the computer again and again it may cause damage to the motherboard. Use the following link to pin point the problem.
