Computer that will turn itself off , please help!

For some reason my computer will shut itself off after around 30 minutes or so. I've tried turning off hibernation but that didn't work because it was already off. Also, for some reason I have to wait around 30 minutes or so before turning it on again or else it wont start up. This has been going on for at least 6 months now, can anyone help? And please don't use too many technical terms because i'm not so good with computers. It is a Microsoft Windows HP made in 2004. Please help!

The problem is overheating. Take the pc apart and clean any dust from the fans inside. Use compressed air and be careful to not bump anything. Please remember to turn off the computer first. There is a large circuit board inside with a fan on it, this is the cpu. Clean this one thoroughly because it is causing the overheating. Another tip is to not set the pc on the floor where it sucks in dirt. Hope this helps.

SECURITY LIGHT COMES ON WHEN DRIVING,EVERYTHING IS OK BUT AFTER MAYBE 4 OR 5 TIMES OF SWITCHING OFF THE ENGINE, NEXT TIME TO TURN KEY TO START ENGINE TURNS BUT FUEL IS SHUT OF. PASS LOCK OPERATES. WE THEN...


The most common reason for this condition is a faulty ignition switch. It loses contact momentarily while cranking, causing a voltage loss to the security system and starts the 10 minute security timer in the computer. It will not start until the timer runs out. Usually the key has to be left on after a start attempt for the ten minutes. Some cars require 30 minutes. I hope this helps you and please rate this,

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.

When i open the gallery, phone shuts down


what has happend is that the phone has detected a virus, like if you have ever used the wire that came in the box to connect to your computer to charge or to create mass storage and the computer has an undetected virus that can get into the phone via the wire, so what i recomend you do is that you scan your computer for undetected viruses, and also restore factory settings on your phone turn it of for 30 seconds turn it on and try again, if this does not work contact your service provider or LG themselves and treat the situation from there.

Sounds like something to do with a power saving feature either from HP itself or from Windows. It could also be that for some reason your computer is overheating, which it than shuts itself off to protect the processor. I would try playing with your power saving features, and cleaning out the fans.

MY TOSHIBA TURNS ITSELF OFF.


If it shuts down normally then all you may have to do is a system restore to when it didn't have the problem. To do that, all you need to do is press start, press run, then type msconfig from there after pressing enter you will see the button system restore.

If it shuts down randomly (as in the entire computer just goes capluey and everything just stops working) It is most likely a grounding issue inside the laptop (electrical short circuit) and to be honest, your computer is trying to protect itself by turning off. The best way to solve it is to have a tech inspect the motherboard on the lappy, or get it replaced. A temporary solution MIGHT be to press and hold the power button for about 30 seconds with the battery taken out and the AC adapter disconnected, and then shaking the computer, and tapping it (gentle to moderately) underneath (best to flip the lappy over to do this. This will knock off anything conducting that you wouldn't be able to get at. Again this is a temporary solution and may or may not work. I hope it does though! :)

E machine T3418, won't turn on


I wonder if your computer is overheating. Try powering off the computer and leaving it off for about 30 minutes, then try turning it back on to see if it boots up.

You also might want to try to open the computer and unseat and reseat the memory modules (of course when the computer is powered off).

TV shuts off


I would suggest that you guys turn the unit off when this happens, unplug the unit for 30 seconds, plug it back in, and see if this helps. If this does not solve your problem, you should call 1-800-448-2244, so a service center in your local area can be found for further assistance.
