Most likely its an over heating problem

most of the time when the computer (CPU) is overheating the computer will shut down by itself to prevent the (CPU) from damaging.

so all you need to do either clean the fans (internal and external fans). or maybe you will need to replace them.

My emachines desktop el1333g-01w wont boot up windows the computer starts but goes into the startup repair screen and stays there


sounds like you need to re-install your os win xp w7 w8 its what we call rolling where the boot up gets to a certain point then forgets what to do so it just keeps going around and around hope that helps.

I have a netbook. the product name is aspire one and the manifacturer os Acer. when i turn the laptop on it turns on but then it stays in a black screen. what do i do? im working on a paper that i have to...


Keep tapping F8 once u press teh power button to turn on your computer.
No select safemode with networking.
Once you get the desktop, save your paper which u were working on to a flash drive or to your email.
Since you didnt specify the OS, i wont be able to give u a details info on doing system restore.
Anyways the next step is system restore to a date on which the computer was working fine.
If that doesnt help, try tapping Alt+F10 instead of the F8 key to start system recovery to reset the computer back to the factory settings, however u will lose all your datas which u put in.

If u can tell me the OS, i can tell u how to start system restore.

Keep me posted on the status of the issue.

My brother disabled my computer. he took something out of the tower. when i turn on my computer, teh screen stays black and the light on the on button blinks. what did he take out?


There is no way of knowing, he may have disconnected some power leads, taken the memory out, you will just have to get him to tell you. If he wont, take something out of his pc (or misplace something he likes till he tells you :)
Good luck

Computer turning of


It sounds like the power supply is going bad. If you decide to replace it get the same or higher watts. You can get power supplies pretty cheap, but cheap isnt always good.

Restore emachine


Your machine has two ways of repair: SYSTEM RESTORE and SYSTEM RECOVERY. System restore is a Windows utility that rolls the machine back to a point where the machine worked before the problem. System recovery is an eMachines tool that puts the machine back the way it was when you first got it. Restore wont delete your data, recovery will and can. If the problem is catastrophic, and youve backed up your data off of the machine, use the recovery option. Your recovery partition (or a recovery disk) is needed to do this, and it involves pressing a key while the computer boots up. Check your documentation for your model of machine.

My Emachine wont stay turned on


My first guess is that you have a virus.  If your virus check software cannot find the problem, other possibilities are a bad power supply or power switch.

My computer is truning off


It sounds like you definitley have malware (some type of viruse and or trojans) I would perform a system recovery if i was you which this will delete everything and start Windows from the beginning when you first purchased the computer. You may do this by
turning off the computer all the way. turn it back on and immediately start tapping either F11 or F10 until it appears with System Recovery then make sure to do the system recovery process. It should take about 25-30 minutes and your computer should run fine, Although yes you will have to put your personal items back on the computer (like pictures,documents, etc) but your computer should run fine... Let me know how it goes and if there is anything else I can do to help you out.

Want shut down


Click Start, then turn off computer, and make sure that your computer is not set to standby or hibernate. This works if you are running Windows XP or Windows 2000. Hope this helps!
