    When I shut down my computer I did it from the on/off button not the start menu.

    No that doesn't work

  • virginiamary Aug 15, 2008

    All these suggestions are good but I'm thinking that there's something wrong with the computer because for a while it's been slow to download my homepage and sometimes it didn't even respond so I end up shutting it down to reboot.

Back power cord is loose just press that firmly. and try it in another socket (the main outle) it will work.some times the est card in side becomes cold because of moisture and the screen takes time to appear.

    If the computer is always freezing this can be a problem with one of the hardware components of the computer like the hard drive, memory or processor , if you can trun it off for a about an hour then try to boot it up again and listen for any beeping sound when you reboot it ,that will help us in diagnosing the problem...

All you need to do is take off the power cable from the back of the computer leave it unplugged then try to push and hold down the power button for 60 seconds without connecting the power cable, then release the button reconnect the cable and it will definately turn on and boot to normal windows.

Computer shuts Down during boot up


I will need to know at which stage of the boot up it shuts down for example can you see the windows logo? If you can get as far as the windows logo. Turn your pc on and hold f8 after the bios screen.

Gx620 boots up, then screen goes blank, reboot gives blank screen with cursor blinking. will boot with cd but still shuts down after a minute or two.


Remove the battery and open the case. Look inside the computer with a flashlight to see if any of the capacitors are busted or leaking from corrosion. The capacitors look like little battery towers, but they are not as tall as the AA or AAA batteries.

If the capacitors are bad, your computer goes bunkers.

Shut down computer and when I went to reboot it it would not turn on. Green light in back is on


Hold Power button in for 10 secs... see if starts... if not, unplug for 5 min and plug back in and try to start. Motherboards can lock up in the BIOS or it could be a power supply. If this solution doesnt work, leave power plug out over night and attempt again. If fails again... it maybe the power supply.

My new iPhone 3GS shuts down my computer when I plug it in


Hi I had the same problem, for a few days the new Iphone worked fine then started to appear as digital picture divice then just shut my Laptop down as soon as i plugged it in. I contacted Apple who were very helpfull and sent me 4 mails with advice. The one that worked for me was ...........
If you have anything running on your pc/Laptop with Logitech driver it conflicts with the apple drivers. I had a built in webcam on Laptop and when I typed Logitech in the search on start menu found it was run by that driver. I uninstalled it and deleted all the relavent files plugged Iphone in and no more problems except I now dont have a webcam but I thought small price to pay.

I hope this Helps
Best wishes

Power went off while downloading something


ok check in the back of the computer and see if the fan is coming on when you press the power button on the computer. if fan is not coming on then you need to replace the power supply that has the fan on it. this cause the computer to shut off and stay off. if the fan is working then use the system recovery disk to do a factory reset. put the disk in the drive and turn the computer on while holding down F1 or F2. then you will be taken to the windows screen. follow instructions from there and you will be fine

Presario s6500nx stops loading at set up screen


sounds like you have board problems.
unplug everything from it first and see if this helps could be something you have plugged up could be bad too.
you will have to open box and look for damage and then one by one unplug something and then reboot to see what it might be.

Computer won't start


Can you see a green light on located on the mother board ? I had the same problem with mine right after the warrranty was off, The mother board failed, But you should make sure thats it first by making sure everything Inside of the computer is tight and secure.Unplug and make sure there is no power on and unplugged,Before you touch anything inside your computer discharge any static electricity by touching the metal on the inside of the tower. The Memory modules Make sure that they are pushed in securely in there slots and video card is Pushed in and tight, and any other extras you may have plugged into it, After you do all that put everything back and try to reboot see if that get you up and going. If not let me know I can Help You fix it or repair it myself if you would like, just leave message here or email me. bear350cid@yahoo.com Happy Holidays
