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!
Re: Computer that will turn itself off , 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.

It is possible that your computer is overheating and is shutting down to prevent it from doing any harm to itself.
Make sure that all fans are clean, there must be no dust present as it hinders airflow!!!
Install as many fans as possible. Computer temps should be in the region of 30-40 degrees centigrade. To avoid CPU throttling, where the CPU slows down to prevent frying itself.

Hi. the mother board seems to be having some initialization issues during boot up. this is common when the mother board is failing. i would check to make sure the battery on this board is working. if it is, the board my be ruined. power board seems to be fine. please rate and god bless.
check power cord plugged in properly and no blown fuse in house electrics. if all correct and still will not work. unplug power cord from back of computer for 2 to 3 minutes and try again. apart from that you need professional help.
Waiting for 10 or 15 or even 30 minutes doesn't make much sense to me.
What kind of flash drive or drives do you use? .. USB Thumb/Pen/Flash drive? ..
If your flash drives in "My Computer" folder just happen to disappear, does the computer still working or freezed state?
When you say your computer does not want to start on AT ALL.' the machine is not running at all or just that the operating system is not booting up?
