I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Before I was having installation problems like I have posted previously, but now when I turn on my computer, after like a minute, the cursor freezes and you can't move the mouse.  Then, the computer automatically shuts itself off.  I last scanned for viruses with Norton AntiVirus 2004 on 1/1/05.  Can anyone tell me why this is happening?  How can I fix it?

Answer:my computer shuts off automatically

If it wont turn on after it shuts down, it kinda sounds like the computer may be overheating. That would mainly be the processor, but there are so many things that could cause it to shut off like that. But not turning back on and having to wait some time, that really sounds like a heat issue. CPU or RAM could be over heating. A bad hard drive would not be doing something like taking 10 minutes for the computer to turn off if the physical plates the data is stored on or the ARM that reads the data is bad. IF you have an intel only go tohttp://www.techpowerup.com/realtemp/for an AMD and intelhttp://www.almico.com/sfdownload.phpMy second Link also shows temps for the Hard drive if it can get it.A buzzing sound could be anything from a bad system fan to a bad hard drive.If your doing something with the harddrive, that is when you should hear clicking/scraping. If the HD is NOT doing anything and you hear the noise, then it is not the Hard drive as others have mentioned.( they dont like that they are wrong and game me a thumbs down...Boo Hoo LOL)Gregs Idea of unplugging the HD and letting sit may not work, becuase it will not be under "load" which means when your surfing the net, listening to music. It could stay on for hours and not over heat because its just idiling and not doing anything.Download my programs I linked, I recommend speedfan (second link) and turn on the computer and start doing stuff, watch the temps.

Hello,

Over 2 weeks ago my girlfirned's computer was infected by Win Defrag. I had attempted to remove it, althoug hthere wasn't much information about it available. I thought I had succeeded as it was no longer reappearing, and the system seemed to be running fine.

Last night, my girlfriend informed me that the computer turned itself off automatically and wouldn't turn on. When she did get it to turn back on it said "Windows was unable to start." The computer (Dell Inspiron 1564) then ran the Windows Startup Repair utility and said it found problems to repair and attempted to repair them. She was able to get the computer up, and as she started to do a MBAM scan, it turned off again without notice. Also SOPHOS Anti-Virus detected Troj/Agent-PPD in her Temp files which according to SOPHOS has been "Cleaned Up."

The AC adapter is fine, the battery is charged. Her old desktop computer (Dell Dimension 5100c) had the same problem which was caused by many hidden viruses and overheating.

I was able to get the computer on long enough to run a MBAM scan (no malicious items found) and a HiJack This scan, and below is the log.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Answer:Computer shuts off automatically

Could be an overheating problem, the PC is protecting itself from damage by shutting down rather than damaging it self. Check the PSU, all the Fans esp. the CPU on the CPU itself. Also make sure all the PCI cards are slotted in securely.

If possible install a tool the monitor PC temperatures to see where the issue is.

We have two HP XP computers. The fan on computer 1 recently stopped working. We took the working fan out of computer 2 to retrieve some information on computer 1. We attempted to boot-up computer 1, and after about 10 seconds, the monitor went blank and the computer sounded like it was shutting down - it froze. We attempted to turn the computer off with the power button, but to no avail. After pulling out the power plug a couple of times and retrying the above, we gave up and put the working fan back in computer 2. However, when we turned computer 2 on, the above scenario with computer 1 repeated itself with computer 2. The fan is still running, monitor turns off, computer on, but not doing anything. Did we trigger something moving the fan around? Is there some kind of reset button? Did something get unplugged? Not really sure what we need to do....

I hate to admit here but I need help. My neighbors computer continues to shut down immediately upon turn on - maybe 3 seconds on turning it on and it shuts down. The PS fan starts up then the fan on the MB then it just goes down. Won't turn on again unless I unplug then plug back in. Definitely no virus because prior to continuously shut down it would stay on for about 15-20 minutes and I was able to do a full virus scan/spybot etc. Either way, when I looked inside CPU it was dirtier than anything I ever saw .. from the fans to the board itself. I cleaned that all out. I switched out PS thinking that was the problem, but it still shuts down. Switched out HD and even removed RAM. It was working fine until she had Windows XP put on it. (Which I really do not think that is the prob cause it was working fine for about 2-3 weeks after it was installed.) I had the PS hooked up to motherboard and no other hardware. Still shuts down. The capacitors look good upon initial visual inspection. Something tells me it was initially an overheating problem because of the grime/dirt on the fans and all inside the CPU. What else can I try to determine what the prob is here. Any help would be appreciated.

Answer:HP Computer shuts down automatically

If you can, take everything out of the pc except the ps and mobo, and use it in another case. If it works fine, it probably the mobo. Also, take the cpu out and use it with the other system.

hi guys. well i reinstalled windows 2000 professional on my desktop. for some strange reason, the computer shuts down automatically for no apparent reason. for example i'f i'm listening to music and doing something, the computer will just reset itself. my analysis is that it is right next to a wireless router. i had a prior experience that there was a cell phone on top of the desktop and as soon as it start ringing, the computer reset automatically. so i was thinking that the desktop computer is sensitive to the wireless frequencies that is coming from the wireless router. tell me what you guys think....

i guess my best bet is to try and move the desktop away from the wireless router...

Hi,

I have an Intel Core 2 CPU 2.4GHz with 2GB RAM desktop, and recently I just took the CPU fan out to clean it out (and checked the CPU paste while i was at it).

When I turn my computer on, it turns it's self off, automatically, after about 1-5 minutes.

The fan works, and it's not heating up like mad.

Thanks,

Answer:CPU - Computer automatically shuts down (desktop)

The heatsink is supposed to be heating up, because that would mean that it is effectively diffusing the heat from the CPU. If it doesn't, that means the CPU cooler is not fastened correctly. Re-seat your CPU cooler and make sure you fasten the pins correctly (I assume you're using the Intel stock fan, with the tricky mounting system).

My computer shuts down by its self. I'm pretty sure I know what's the problem but I just want verify if this is exactly the problem. Unless it's possibly a virus or anything else that's causing this which I doubt.

My genius theory is that I don't have enough power for my computer.
My graphics card is a GTX 460 which requires 450 WATT, and my current Power Supply currently has 450 WATT i think. So I'm assuming I just need a larger power supply to fix this? Am I correct?

I just want to verify if I'm correct before I buy a new power supply. It shuts down while I play games, and now its shutting down even though I'm not playing a game.

If it is the power supply, any recommendations for a new power supply?

Speccy Text File Attachment below

Answer:[SOLVED] My Computer Shuts Off Automatically

Two possibilities

1. Overheating. Though unless the inside of your computer is all dust, this is very unlikely
2. Not enough power. The 460 requires 450w of power, idle, but when you try to stress the card at ALL it will try to draw more power. 550w is the bare minimum you should have, as well as a good brand.


Take out the graphics card, see if it keeps restarting. If it does not, get a new power supply. If it does, it is probaly overheating

Hey All

Hoping someone out there can help me on this one cause I really dont have much of an idea as to what could be causing it. Since yesterday my computer has begun to shut down automatically after I have been playing a game for around 10/15 minutes or so. It doesnt come up with any error messages or make any weird noises or anything, it just automatically shuts down. The weird thing is that it only does it when I am playing a game, any other time and its fine.

I thought it might be something to do with temperature but my CPU runs at around 62/63 during a game, hot, but not enough to warrant a shut down i would have thought and my cpu temp has been 10/15 degrees higher than this and never shut down, usually it just freezes if its a temp problem. I though maybe it was a virus or something due to the sudden occurance of the problem, no warning signs etc. Ive done full virus/adware scans and nothings turned up :S

Anyone have any idea what this could be I'd be most grateful as Oblivion is coming in a few days and I wanna be able to play it for more than 10 minutes!

Thanks in Advance.

I need your help people.
My friend's computer automatically shuts itself down whenever it is opened.
It continues to load up to the desktop but then it shuts down quickly and displays the shut down message "saving your settings..." then it turns off..

it is running on a Windows XP professional..
and has about 300 MB of RAM
it also has two hard drives with 20 Gigabytes each...

Here's what happened before this..
-The last time it ran I had a problem running BitDefender and any other antivirus / anti spy softwares because the system shuts the program down. I installed Trojan Remover and scanned for malicious files but then in the middle of scanning, the computer freezes and I restart it pressing the reset button on the CPU.
-I tried restarting in safe mode but it just freezes so I repeated restarting the computer in normal mode for about five times then finally i was able to run Bitdefender, Trojan Remover, and Ad-aware.. but there came an error message saying that "RegEdit cannot be accessed" or something like that..
-When I ran Trojan Remover there were about more or less 5 files that were detected as "internet worm" I tried choosing "disable from running by changing its reference" and it says "the policy on registry editing was reset" but then whenever i run Trojan Remover again these files are still detected.. i didn't know what to do so i left that matter

I am having a problem and I am not sure sure how to solve it. As stated in the title, the computer turns on automatically, beeps then shuts down. I have tried clearing the CMOS through the jumper way, but that does not seem to work. I am going to get a new lithium battery to replace the CMOS the battery way, but I am not confident that will work.

I am not sure if it's an overheating problem as the computer has been turned off for hours and still shuts down automatically after the beep. I have tried unplugging everything like keyboard, mouse, etc. except the power cable but I am still having the same problem.

I have tried using an old PSU but I am not sure if I am connecting everything correctly with that one as it has different cables to my current one.

The computer boots up automatically after I switch on the power switch at the back of the computer, beeps then instantly shuts down. If I leave the power switch on, it repeats the boot up, then beep, then shut down problem every few minutes.

I didn't had to remove the motherboard so I know everything is connected. I switched the cooler master fan that came with the heatsink because it was broken but it worked just fine before I applied the thermal paste. The new fan I got is Noctua NF F-12.

Answer:Applied new thermal paste and now my computer automatically shuts off

How much thermal paste did you apply? Did you remember to clean the old stuff off first? Is your heatsink properly secured down?

Double check all power connections and components (e.g. RAM and PCI cards).

May also be a good idea to unplug all extra components other than 1 stick of RAM and (if you don't have an onboard GPU), your GPU.

If it still doesn't boot, you can try removing your motherboard from your case, hooking up basic components again, lay the motherboard on a piece of cardboard and try to boot up outside of the case in case something on the mobo is shorting out.

Sorry about wall of text but its a pretty deep problemThis problem started about 2 weeks after I built my PC. One day, it just went poof and turned itself off. 3 seconds later, it automatically turns itself back on. I went into my windows and turned off the setting that means it automatically restarts after power loss, but it will still turn on on its own. I managed to fix this issue for about a month by opening it up, just fiddling about (things like pushing cables like CPU power and mobo power) and then I unplugged it from my surge protector and into my wall socket. It was absolutely fine for a month, I could play the most intensive games, temps are not a problem and nothing would happen. However, a month passed and then one day it turned off and turned itself on again. I am stumped.My educated guess would be that it's the PSU acting up but I am not sure why I fixed it for a month. I have noticed that every time I open up the computer and fiddle inside, I seem to hold off the shutdowns for a week or a few days. I have run memtest for about 2 passes with no errors, and I have not yet seen it shutdown when not in windows. It hasn't shut down in safe mode or in the bios (however I havent tested it for very long)My motherboard was already replaced before the build as it was DOA, and I have run stress tests on the GPU and CPU. (nothing happened)Any help is greatly appreciated, my main question is why was I able to stop the shutdowns for a month, and why is it that... Read more

Answer:Computer randomly shuts down and turns itself back on automatically

Hi,
 
Based on your information, you may have an issue with your reset button. As you built the PC, you're aware of where that is connected to your motherboard. Please disconnect it completely and see if that makes a difference.
 
I'm not sure by your description if when you "shut down" the PC yourself, if the PC stays off. Could you verify that. I'm guessing that what you're describing is the PC is not shutting off, but rather doing a restart or reset.
 
You haven't indicated if the Windows is giving you any BSOD or other message, or if it just goes black, and restarts. Please provide that as well.
 
Let me know,
 
Kurt

How do I stop my computer from automatically shutting down, restarting, or going to a blank (dead) screen (which can only be solved by unplugging) whenever I connect to Windows Media Encoder?

It usually doesn't happen right away, but sometimes happens as soon as I connect to the internet radio station I'm playing on, and now always happens right when the screen saver is kicking in. The first few months I used Windows Media Encoder 9 this never happened, then it started happening every now and then, and now it's come to the point where I must always gaurd and keep my mouse or computer from going to the screensaver page.

How do I make sure the encoder can keep running without my supervision and stop the computer from just randomly shutting off?

Hi, a small blue windows appears quickly only when the computer is connected to the internet, and then the computer shuts down. The window appears too quickly to read it thouroughly, but it may say something about dumpreg.

I had a bad virus on my computer and I wanted to boot it into safe mode. So I tried and everytime I tried it wouldn't work. I kept getting this message on a blue screen saying my video driver failed to initialize and it shut down automatically but it would boot up normal if I didn't try to go into safe mode.

So I read that you could set your computer to automatically boot into safe mode from msconfig so I went in and set it to boot into safe mode automatically every time I powered up. So I turned off my computer and tried to.

No matter what I do, no matter what option I select the blue screen with the error about my video driver comes up and it shuts down automatically.

What can I do to fix this? Anything? Is there a way to change the way my computer starts back up (to normal becuase the normal startup doesn't work) from before windows loads or away to access a DOS window or something?

I'm using XP home btw

I cannot even boot into the Windows XP CD. I put it in my CD drive and powered on and it didn't work. The F8 menu still comes up and nothing I change still works.

I changed the bios to boot from the CD drive but it still presented me with the same F8 menu which still takes me to the blue screen error about the video driver.

I pressed F2 when it started up and moved the CD drive up to number 1 from the boot setting then I pressed Esc and saved and exited. Then when I restarted nothing had changed

Over the past few days, my computer has been experiencing high CPU usage. Upon attempting to perform a Malwarebytes scan in safe mode, I would find the computer has somehow shut down automatically during the scan. Since I would leave the computer unattended, I am not sure if any particular detections occur prior to the shutdown. The same thing also occurs when I perform a SuperAntiSpyware scan during safe mode. I am using Windows 7 as the operating system if that helps, in case it's an issue with the OS.

I have an E-machines T5254 and just a couple of days ago the PC started Shutting off for no reason. I checked to see if the fans were working, and the were spinning. I looked in the BIOS and I see that the CPU Fan is at 1240 RPM and the System Fan is at 0 RPM. I figure that is the issue, but what fan is what. There is a Fan on the Mobo, and there is a Fan on the top Back of the PC. Need some help here. Thanks

Answer:PC shuts down automatically

"System Fan" is the fan connected to the case. If it is spinning but the BIOS is reporting 0 RPMs then the sensor on the fan has failed. Could try cleaning it with canned air or better yet you may just want to buy a new one.

I have a K8VGA-M motherboard, AMD Sempron 3400+ CPU, 600watt psu, 1.5GB memory, 120GB HD, nvidia 6200 GC and the usual mouse, keyboard, etc.

My problems started this morning. Used PC last nite and it was fine. This morning it shut down on me after about 2-3 minutes then restarted again a few seconds later then shut down again. The shutdown is sudden like a loss of power. Occasionally their was a few beeps like a 'nee naw nee naw nee naw' until I switched the damn power unit off. I opened the case and checked everything. Removed the CPU and checked the paste which I applied about a month ago and put the CPU back, fan plugged in, etc. All looked good but again it shut down and this time it didn`t even POST and the keyboard (USB based) would not work. Changed the keyboard for a plug in one (not USB) and this one worked yet the PC would not reach POST. Removed the 512MB chip and tried again. Got to POST then it switched off again. Replaced the chip and removed the 1GB. Same again.

The PC takes a good 5-10 seconds to come on once the PC is switched on, the network lights for the Ethernet cable come on, go off then come back on again before the PC powers up and shuts off. I am at a total loss as it worked ok yesterday.

The PSU was from Ebay as was the mobo.

Quick Addendum: I did replaced the 13 Amp fuse in the PSU plug before it started going batsh*t crazy and not getting to or beyond POST.

Hello,

I've had this before and I think it was a virus. But I've run the removal tools this time and it had not fixed the problem and I have XP2 on my machine so this should include the fix anyway.

When I boot up my machine, it works fine, it gets to the log on screen then after a few minutes maybe just 30 seconds it starts the shut down process (i.e. saves settings) and powers off. I am able to log in if I'm quick enough but it still shuts downs like I've selected to shut down from the XP Start Menu everytime.

I was pointed to the following MS support page (which is to do with restarting and not shutting down) and it worked for a while. Then it started again and running this fix doesn't help any more.

I just purchased the Acer Aspire AZ1-621 UR22 21.5 inch All-In-One Touch Screen Desktop and it shuts off automatically after 2 minutes. I haven't downloaded anything and have all of the factory settings. Running Windows 8.1 The ONLY things I have done are set up my password/username and then started looking around on the desktop. I have no idea why it's shutting off. This is a refurbished unit and I'm realizing now that this is mostly likely why it was returned How do I stop it from not shutting off automatically?  Thanks in advance for any help

Hi flyinc There is definitely an issue with your AZ1. Despite the fact it is a refurbished unit, it should still work! Best thing to do is return it for a replacement. It's a good unit, but yours is definitely faulty!

I recently bought Ideapad U400, and have been fairly happy with it. But recently I have noticed that it suddenly shuts down, I mean the computer just blacks out and then restarts showing the "Windows did not shut down properly" message. This has happened twice.

I am worried that something may be seriously wrong with this machine. Please Help.

Answer:windows shuts down automatically

Hi hfxcastillo,

This may be the problem. A vulnerability in Windows XP, NT, and 2000, in combination with the W32.Blaster.Worm that exploits this vulnerability is causing some computers to shut down automatically with the following error:
"System Shutdown
This shutdown was initiated by NT AUTHORITY/SYSTEM Windows must now restart because the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service terminated unexpectedly."

To solve this problem, you will need to take the following steps:

1. Download and install the patch from Microsoft that fixes the vulnerability. The following page has the patches for Windows XP, NT, and 2000:
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=823980

If your computer does not stay running long enough to download this patch, you will need to do the download from another computer and place it on a floppy or, if you have a Zip drive, a Zip disk. You can then take this disk to your computer to run the patch.

2. Download and run the following removal tool, which will scan your computer for the W32.Blaster.Worm:

http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/w32.blaster.worm.removal.tool.html

Hello

I have some trouble with my laptop, I have a Dell Inspiron 15 with Win7, when I install the Win 7 I had to reinstall all drivers, I had to download them from dell.com but I had no wireless connection because the driver was missing, there's another computer I took from a friend, I noticed that it turns off by itself automatically but well, I got no explanation about it, anyway I downloaded the wireless driver from the desktop and got it into my laptop via USB, now I found that my laptop does shuts down by itself like the other desktop from where I downloaded the driver. Please help.. what should I do?
It's not about hardware issues or overheating issues or driver issues, it is a virus

We need to run a GMER scanDownload GMER and save to your desktop.

If so, select NO.Make sure all options are checked except:SectionsIAT/EATDrives/Partition other than Systemdrive, which is typically C:\Show All (This is important, so do not miss it.)Note: If GMER crashes or hangs, please retry running a scan. Only this time, in addition to the options mentioned above, uncheck Devices as well.When the scan is complete, click Save and save the log onto your desktop.Post the log from GMER along with the other logs.

Hey guys,

Got another one fore ya here, well my parents PC just turns off right after the Windows XP screen comes on. I tried that a few times with the same affect. My next thought was too boot into Safe Mode and to see if I can find a virus or something. Same thing, right after loading the drivers, shuts down. All I can think of is it might be over heating, but I dunno. I have done my best to spray all the dust outta of the tower, and that worked for some time, but now its back to its old issues. Any thoughts or help on this would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:Pc Shuts Down Automatically Onstart Up

Check to see if the fan on the CPU heat sink is spinning up to speed, and see if it has any dust inside. Check to see if the air intake locations are clear, try running it with the cover off and see if that makes a difference. Make sure that the heat sink if firmly attached. If the computer is several years old you may want to replace the thermal compound between the CPU and its heat sink. If you download Everest Home Edition you can monitor the temperatures without having to enter the BIOS.

Answer:Mysql shuts down automatically

Ok, I've taken care of the error message shown above. Since my installation is not in the default c:\mysql directory I had already created my.ini in the WINNT directory with the following values:
[mysqld]
basedir=D:/inetpub/mysql
datadir=D:/inetpub/mysqldata
[WinMySQLAdmin]
Server=D:/Inetpub/mysql/bin/mysqld-nt.exe

Then, to eliminate the errors on running mysqld --console for the first time I also had to copy the subdirectories within the original data installation folder, which in my case was D:\inetpub\mySQL\data\ , to the directory I specified d:\inetpub\mysqldata.

The original mysql data files are now in the new data folder and so I don't get those same error messages

My Satellite SA30-303 keeps powering down. I suspect it's an overheating problem. Any suggestions?

Answer:Satellite A30-303 shuts down automatically

Hi

You could be right.
In my knowledge the OS could shuts down the notebook if the temperature was increased to the critical level.

You know that every preinstalled device in the notebook produces warmness.
Sometimes more when the devices run with full performance.
The devices run with full performance when the heavy performance applications like games runs on the notebook.

On my notebook Toshiba power saver controls the cooling method and the CPU processing speed. I think this is also preinstalled on your notebook. Therefore you should firstly check these options.

Furthermore you should check your cooling module ventilators. Sometimes the dust and debris prevent the notebook from properly cooling.
You should also have enough free space around the notebook for the properly fresh air circulation.

After the latest update my pc automatically enters sleep mode and, if left alone shuts down completely after about an hour.

In system settings I was able to find the sleep settings and reset the monitor time-out to 'never' and, I think, hard-drive sleep to 'never.

This solved part of my problem in that it no longer goes to sleep.

However, I like to keep my pc running with programs such as Outlook minimized so that I will receive incoming emails, etc.
When I leave my machine to go and do some other work it is incredibly frustrating to come back an hour later and find that everything has automatically shut itself down and I have to restart the whole shebang, which takes considerably longer that a normal start-up.

Can anyone tell me where I can find the settings to cure this?

Hello,

Thanks for this nice forum.
There are almost similar problems posted here but not exactly - so this post..

I hv a 8 year old PC with following specs

P4 1.5 G Hz
WIN 2000 Pro ( installed it 3 years back in 2nd HD - other HD still having
old WIN 98 SE )
640 MB RAM

3 FANs - CPU / cabinet / PSU

I will provide other details if needed during troubleshooting.

The PC was working fine all these years. Then since last month it started this behaviour. While starting - after random time (varrying from 3 sec to 1 min) it shuts down. I can hear the fans stopping and it looks just like a proper shutdown; there is no error msg or anything.

Sometimes the booting doesn't even goes to BIOS screen & sometimestimes it goes upto WIN 2K loading screens - it is just random.

After shutting down - it doesn't do anything like restarting. I need to switch off the power supply mains and then again need to press the power on buton to try again

If I try several times - then it is getting on.

And then (this is where my problem differs from other similar problems) - if I keep the PC ON - it NEVER shutsdown automatically. I kept it on for over 20 days and no problem

So heat is not the problem - and not even the motherboard.
If I shutdown and quickly restarts ( say within 5 - 10 minutes) - it starts OK. But if I keep it down for overnight - and then try to start next day - it is giving the same problem. That time CPU and everything is absolutely cool.

Answer:Solved: PC automatically shuts down while booting within 5 sec - 1 min

Ive had this on one of my old pc's it was the PSU(Power supply unit) One of the 12v rails was only putting out 8v from cold. When it was turned on and off a few times the retained voltage was enough to get it up to 11.2v which was enough to get it started once it was there, no problems. Should be a cheap fix if you can still get a PSU for that machine

How can I fix this problem

Answer:Equium A60 shuts down automatically after 10min

Hi Osama,

This sounds like a classic case of over-heating caused by a build-up of dust and debris in the coolling vents. I suggest you try using a vacuum cleaner hose against the air intake grilles on the bottom of your notebook to extract the dust and debris.

Also make sure that the notebook is not used in an environment where there insufficient air getting through the cooling system.

Hello
I have a Dell Inspiron15 laptop. The specs are as follows :
Intel i3 processor
4gb Ram
1gb AMD graphic card
512gb Harddisk
Two months ago my laptop got overheated and it automatically got shut down. After this i took my laptop to a professional and he cleaned the laptop and the overheated problem got solved. Now when i switch on the laptop chkdsk comes and when i continue with it laptop powers off suddenly. When i switch on the laptop it got powered off even before chkdsk comes. I waited for 5 minutes and then i switched on and i canceled the chkdsk and it went to the login screen. This is happening for past two months. Every time i have to cancel chkdsk or it gets powered off immediately. Even though i am in Bios settings, after some time it gets powered off. I tried booting into Ubuntu from Usb and it gets powered off after some time. Puppy Linux is installed in my laptop before and i even can't get into it. I have to cancel chkdsk and get into login screen and only then it doesn't get powered off. Somebody suggested that i take the Ram out and reseat it after cleaning. I tried that and there is no change. A problem has occurred yesterday. Black screen with cursor comes now after i cancel chkdsk. I googled my problem about the black screen and everybody tells that repair it using a rescue disk. Now i can't even repair Windows because, if i boot into windows cd my laptop gets powered off.

Hi,

this is my first post and I have done a search to try to find an appropriate place to post, so please don't kill me if this isn't the right place.

My Equium A110 cut out twice today and when I felt the base it was incredibly hot. It tends to get pretty warm normally but usually the fan kicks in. I have a feeling the fan has stopped working.

Is this something that is reasonably quick/cheap to have replaced?
I am not remotely technically minded but I don't want to have to spend days or even weeks with no online facility at home.

Answer:Equium A110 shuts down automatically

Hi

Seems the notebook overheats and therefore it shuts down automatically to prevent the hardware from damage.

I read many times about similar issues and mostly this happens if the cooling modules don?t work properly due to the dust and debris inside the cooling grilles.

If your cooling grilles are clogged you could remove the dust using the compressed air spray which could be ordered from a computer dealer.

If it doesn?t help then you should contact the ASP in your country because it could be possible that your cooling modules malfunction.
Additionally the technician should check if the thermal grease is ok or if it?s necessary to renew it.

Last but not least you should use your notebook on the desk where is enough free space around the notebook. This is very important to ensure the properly fresh air circulation.

Good luck

Prior to fixing those errors I have run a HIJACK_THIS and I'm including the log file. Does anyone see anything specific that would cause the auto shutdown and missing files ?

I am attaching 2 MALWAREBYTES files and a HIJACK log. Thank you for your help. Note: 2nd Malwarebytes scan removed HDDDoctor Rogue Virus

Answer:PC Automatically shuts down with fatal error

PLEASE CLOSE THIS TOPIC. Problem has been resolved. Removal of infections with Malwarebyes along with installing SP2 of Vista corrected the problems.

This T400 is 2 yrs old. It starts to shut down itself without any warning. I thought it's over heated, but all temp. monitor programs find it's not over heated. I can turn it on right after it shuts down.I also reinstalled the whole thing to facotry setting.But it still shuts down without warning. PLease help me figure this out. It's just out of warranty!

Answer:Help! T400 shuts down automatically, and it's not over heated

Does it shutdown after doing something in particular or is random? Do you have the latest BIOS? http://download.lenovo.com/lenovo/content/ddfm/MIGR-72858.html#bios

Hi guys !!
I have a big problem with my PC.
I bought my system 6 months ago and everything was fine till 1 week when my PC started to shut down itself automatically after I play ANY game !! For example I start to play CS:GO. When I'm on game menu (Play / Settings / ETC) everything's just fine, but when I enter a game with other players, my PC shuts down in about 5 seconds. What's really weird is that when it shuts down, he remain like that about 2-3 seconds and then it powers up again. So it's like a reboot but.. it's not a reboot...

Same thing happens on every game I play, even if it's League of Legends or Grand Theft Auto V !!

NOTE: It's not from overheating, my temps are pretty cool..
NOTE 2: Sorry for my bad English, I know I suck at this language ^^
My pc specs:

OS : Windows 8.1
Video card : NVIDIA GeForce 660 GTX (2GB 192 BIT)
Memory ram : 8 GB
CPU : QuadCore Intel Core i5-2400, 3200 MHz (32 x 100)
HDD : ST3250310AS ATA Device (250 GB, 7200 RPM, SATA-II)
 

Answer:Pc Shuts Down Automatically When Playing Any Game !!

Is it only with online multiplayer/co-op that you get the shutdowns, or does it work OK during offline or single player online?

Make model# and age of the PSU?

I'm suspecting a bad networking driver/hardware but it could well be some VPN/security software or remnant of.
