It turns off within 5 minutes of it turning on

My computer will not stay on. Everytime i turn it on, it will start up and I can't click on anything and no programs will load. Then it just gets a black screen and turns off. It also gets really hot. I don't think the fan is working. could it be overheating?

Have you checked the battery. I had the same problem, found out that battery wasn't put well. How about you pull out the battery and put it back gain.

Yes, this could be caused by overheating. If this is due to overheating, it's most likely that the processor has burnt up. You will need to take it in for a professional hands-on diagnostic in order to find the exact cause of the problem. Overheating can cause several different issues within a machine.

Need to bypass the security fob. Won't start


You can bypass the fob IF you know the security code.

DO NOT sit on seat, lift bike off kick stand, or anything else that will activate the security mode!

Turn IGN to IGNITION.

Quickly (within 2 seconds) hold BOTH turn signal switches until confirmation signal (KEY icon flashes at fast rate, in odometer window, a flashing "-" will be followed by 4 more dashes = "----")

Enter 1st digit (a) in PIN by pressing LEFT turn signal switch (a) times (i.e., 5 times for the number 5)
The 1st "-" will become the 1st digit (i.e., "5")

Press RIGHT switch signal 1 TIME.
The 1st digit is stored and the dash will flash.

Enter 2nd digit (b), and repeat sequence until done.

After the 5th digit is entered, the KEY icon stops blinking, and the system is disarmed.

The system will stay off until the IGN switch is turned off.

If at any time during disarming sequence an error is made, wait 2 minutes before trying again.

Starter will not engage anti theft light is on it is a 2005 cobalt


I found this on a website try this

1. Put the newly cut Master key into the keyway and turn it to the ON (RUN) position. A "security" indicator
light on the dashboard will stay on for 10 minutes.
2. Within 1 minute after the indicator light goes off, turn the ignition to "OFF", then return to the ON (RUN)
position. The indicator light again will stay on for 10 minutes (Do not remove the key.)
3. Again, within 1 minute after the indicator light goes off, turn the ignition to "OFF", then return to the ON
(RUN) position. The indicator light again will stay on for 10 minutes. (Do not remove the key.)
4. When the light goes off the third time, the new key is programmed into the computer and will start
the car. Remove the key and then re-insert it into the ignition lock and start the car.
All previously stored codes will be erased. To stop the process at any time, simply remove the key and use
an existing key to start the car.

Help Please!


Try removing the battery and connecting it to the computer.

If it shows up on the Computer, format it.

To format in My Computer>Device Name (Lyra)>Right Click and select format.

This will erase everything on the device and allow you to start over.




Best of Luck.

Monitor turning off


If I understand you problem correctly, your monitor is turning off when it remains idle? Does it come back on when you use the keyboard or move the mouse? If so, then this could just be caused by the computer's power-save settings. This can be adjusted by right clicking on the the desktop and selecting propeties. Go to the screensaver tab and click on the power button. From here, you can either set the "Turn Off Monitor Time" to never, or to a greater period of time.
