This behavior on your PC can only be caused by a malware/worm/trojan/virus. If you can no longer start any applications because it quickly shuts down, the only solution is to re-format and re-install your computer. If you still have a chance to run system restore, then restore it to a point where it is still working properly.

My Acer Veriton X480 turns off after few seconds and won't boot.


Have you cleaned it lately? Is it getting sufficent air flow? A few cans of compressed air and a can of Electronic Contact Cleaner spray. If so, I would suggest the PSU may be bad. Reseat the memory mods, Try to reboot. If it starts, LED's blink, then completely powers off, Test the PSU with a multimeter, replace if necessary. Do you get anything on the monitor? Or does it shut down before? Had you done any hardware or software updates/upgrades?

The computer suddenly shut down & will not re-boot. On turning on there may be a few seconds to allow option of opening up in safe mode which is applied but within a few seconds the system shuts down...


Bad Power Supply.
Weak voltage power rail.

One of the leading causes of computer failure.
Replace the Power Supply.

[The next cause of failure is the computer is dirty inside, as well as inside the Power Supply's case.
Dirt, dust, etc, takes a Power Supply down quick ]

Need guidance of how to replace your Power Supply, or guidance in finding a decent replacement Power Supply let me know in a Comment.

My Dell Dimension begins to boot then sits there as if asleep


It sounds like it's probably the power supply. Computers require more power to boot up than they do to keep running, so if it's fine once it gets going, the power supply may just be dying. If you have a multimeter and know what you're doing, you can test the power supply connectors to see if any of them (especially the ones leading to the motherboard) are not giving the proper voltages.

How old is the computer?

Computer well not boot


The computer may have done a routine software update that automatically reboots the PC when complete. HP is known for this. If it fires up when you turn it on, no worries. If its DOA then thats another issue. Best regards.

When i click on to my msn it lets me sign in but after a few seconds it says there is a problem and the programme cant run properly it then closes it


Try a new search engine such as google and see what happens. What happens when it closes? Goes blue screen, back to desktop, etc? Sounds a little like you may have a virus, trojans or some malware. Run a good antivirus, AVAST is good and free also AVG is Free. Nortons and McCaffee expensive and very little support and slow your computer down.....

Start up


If the Computer In question is a PC Desktop computer a few issues. First power supply may be malfunctioning. Second check the the CPU fan inside computer is running and not full of dust when you turn it on. If it's dusty, get vacuum cleaner and clean it. Fans need to be able to work without overheating because CPU runs hot.
Thirdly try to take out battery and restart computer. If starts up replace with new battery.

In Case it's a laptop. Take out battery and try to run using power supply and if turns on place battery back in. If battery isn't charging you will need a new battery. Let me know how you go!

My home pc trouble in windows xp professional


Hi chirutha,

Which version of Windows are you running? I would suggest running System Restore to a point maybe a week ago and then trying it again. You can find System Restore from your Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools menu. System Restore for Windows is non-destructive and won't delete any data files (music, pictures, documents) that you've put on the computer. It's also reversible.

You can also access System Restore directly from booting into Safe Mode (after the system POST startup messages run when the computer is booted up, press F8 until the Windows Boot Menu comes up and select Safe Mode).

If you can't power your computer down, hold your breath and then hold the main power button for five seconds and it will shut down.
