New i5 upgrade, PC randomly switches off

Q: New i5 upgrade, PC randomly switches off

I have just put an asus p775 motherboard and i5 processor into my PC, reinstalled all components with no issue, PC rebooted fine back into OS (Windows 7), after anything between 10 mins and half hour the PC just switches itself off, any thought would be welcome

Preferred Solution: New i5 upgrade, PC randomly switches off

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/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Is your CPU temperature running high?...Is the heatsink properly connected?...

my dad just bought an HP laptop with Vista Home and when he has 2 IE 8 browsers open when he trys to x one browser out it switches windows and closes the window he wanted to keep open. Why would it randomly switch and only when he is trying to close the window?

A:IE 8 randomly switches

IE8 isn't really that good. Try TAB browsing using IE8, it's much better than browsing using different windows.

Hi, I hope I'm posting in the correct place..
I've just upgraded my comp and I now have:
Bought in the upgrade bundle:
Abit nf7
512 DDR
barton xp 2500+
cpu heatsink + fan
Already had:
gforce ti4600
case with 350W power supply
40 gig and 16 gig hardrive
dvd drive
cdrw drive
floppy disk

The problem I have is that my computer sometimes shuts down randomly and goes into, i think, standby mode....or maybe it's power saving mode. Only way i can turn it back on is to unplug it and wait for a bit.
At first I thought it only happened when I used cpu intensive programs. Championship Manager 4 uses 100% cpu usage all the time, and after a few minutes my pc shuts down.

Recently it had been doing it even when I wasn't doing anything on my pc, and resulted in some files being corrupted and having to reinstall winxp.
Any help appreciated.

Hello,

Boot the PC into the BIOS and post the temp and voltage readings.

Install HWMonitor and post a screenshot of the program at idle and while under load.

System shutdowns can usually be attributed to heat or power problems.

Sometimes the screen goes haywire with random colors and lines before switchign off and sometimes the screen just goes dark. The laptop restarts iutself after two/three seconds but the screen remains dark and i either have to long press the power button to switch it off or remove the battery. Please assist with the problem.

Hi,Attempt to perform a hard reset to remove all the excess static using: http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c01684768after this step, i  recommend checking the wall outlet, the light on the charger port (ensure it isn't blinking), attempt to boot to bios using F10 while the pc is restarted, if the issue persists, contact HP on 1800-474-6836 in order to get a repair setup as you could be looking at a motherboard failure.

I have dsl service through ATT. When I tried to access ESPN360 about a week ago, I could not log in to ESPN360. In trying to resolve the problem with ESPN & ATT tech support, I learned that my IP had been switched to one starting with 99 instead of 76. I was able to reset my computer to a 76 IP. Now I am seeing my IP address being randomly reset to 99.x.x.x. Besides being annoying, is this a problem and how do I stop it?

Hi,
My Dell Inspiron 15R 5520 laptop switches off at completely random times. I've given it for service 3 times and the frustating part is during their testing, it works completely fine so the repair guy can't figure out the problem.
After it switches off, it doesn't boot for a while and just gives black screen and a bunch off beeps. ( 7 of them at intervals)

I did a diagnostic and got a CPU fan error 2000-0511 Validation 130122.

Please let me know what is this issue and how to solve this. 
Regards,
Mandar. 

A:Laptop switches off randomly

Sounds like the CPU fan is not working -- leading to overheating and shutdown.  Start by replacing the fan:
<<www.parts-people.com/index.php?action=item&id=13933>>
<<www.parts-people.com/index.php?action=item&id=14456>>(the fan is different depending on whether the system has Intel or AMD video).
If that doesn't solve the problem, the mainboard is the next possible suspect.

Whenever I'm playing high performance games my laptop switches itself off All the signs point to overheating but I think it's something else Firstly I can switch my laptop off immediately after this happens with no obvious ill effects My laptop actually has overheated before and I couldn't switch it on for a good minutes afterwards Secondly the switching off seems to happen somewhat randomly On Saturday my laptop switched itself off at least times however the next day I played Team Fortress for hours straight without any problems and my laptop was a fair bit hotter during the hour session than it ever was during the LAN Party Today it's switching off even more frequently I can't even get minutes of off.

A:My laptop randomly switches off.

Welcome to TSF.

I would look into other possibilities of the random restarts. It doesn't look like a malware related issue. Have you ran a memory check yet? Google for memtest and use that tool to run a memory test.

There are probably malware that may cause this kind of issue, but I'm leaning more towards a hardware related issue. Try posting in the hardware board for more help.

Today while typing in notepad, the keyboard suddenly switched from Dvorak keyboard layout to Qwerty. Yesterday Opera did it. Before Opera did it, Open Office did it. When I close the offending program Dvorak is restored.

I am NOT using the language bar and do not have qwerty set as a default layout, Only dvorak.

Is anybody else having this problem and/or know how to prevent it?

A:win 7 64bit RC randomly switches from Dvorak to Qwerty

Try using ctrl-shift. If that causes your keyboard to switch that might be your culprit, not capricious randomness.

I use Qwerty and Dvorak key layouts and this switches between them. Tried to configure with the Regionalization control panel and that doesn't seem to remap this keystroke. It's definitely inconvenient for spreadsheet users.

This is the same laptop that was causing problems way back in October http forums techguy org t html To summarize briefly I got it working again randomly (NOT switches heat-related) Laptop off by removing one of the two RAM chips which was kaput and later installing another Recently however the same machine has begun misbehaving again -- it switches off randomly This is not hibernation or standby the only way to get it going is the reboot After searching the interweb for a Laptop switches off randomly (NOT heat-related) solution I figured the closest answer was probably overheating the fan did seem to be on a lot of the time We purchased a cooling pad which certainly put paid to any heat issues -- and made life a lot quieter -- but the laptop is still randomly shutting off It doesn t seem to be linked to memory load -- it will fail while it is just idling -- and there doesn t seem to be any pattern to the problem it will go days without going belly up and then fail twice in mintes It has a firewall anti-spyware and is anti-virus protected so I m pretty sure this is not mal-ware related All the relevant Windoze XP updates have been done I even increased the size of the partition to make sure it wasn t a pagefile problem My next likely candidate is faulty RAM either the chip that survived s accident has finally begun to lose it or the replacement chip is on the slide Is this likely Or does anyone else have any ideas nbsp

Hi all

This isnt an ongoing problem but since ive bought my computer at launch, every month or so, it will randomly switch off, and wont switch back on until ive unplugged the power supply for a couple of minutes then plugged it back in, then it will switch back on and work fine.

Is my power supply failing me? or is it being overloaded or is it another problem
 

A:Computer Sometimes Switches Off Randomly, Power Supply?

Chances are it is your power supply if it is turning itself off like that, try using a different kettle lead. If that doesn't work, I would replace the power supply unit, it shouldn't be that expensive. Are you getting any error codes before or after the system failure?

EDIT: Saying that, I have seen problems like this before simply from to much dust build up inside the system, causing it to overheat and shut itself down.

Hi,
Today when I switched on my computer it began to start up (barely staying on for five seconds) before switching off and repeating the whole process. It does stay on long enough for me to push either esc or f10 and go into computer set up. However i am not too sure what to configure and how and as soon as i exit out of it, my laptop starts the whole on/off process again.

I am not too sure about the specs of my laptop, only that it is an Hp and has windows xp.
Please, what can i do? I would be forever grateful if someone knows how I can fix this..
 

A:Laptop switches on, begins to start up, switches off then repeats process

If you can post the model of the HP laptop, we can learn more for you.
You should find the model information on a sticker on the bottom of the machine.

It sounds like ESC or f10 will take you to the BIOS configuration utility.
Have you tried f8? You may need to press repeatedly, or press and hold.
This will take you to the option to boot to Safe Mode.
If this is successful, let us know. If not, let us know.

Next... you obviously have internet access from another computer.
There are two utilities you should download and run.
These utilities will check for errors in 1) your memory and 2) your drive.
Since they run outside of windows, trying to run them will give us a good idea if it is a hardware issue, or if it is a problem with your OS. (the f8 question may leave this an open question, but this will help get a definite answer, in addition to trying to isolate hardware faults)

To Test Memory... Using Memtest Please follow this guide...

Please note that (unless you start getting errors reported) you will need to let this run a long time.
A good way of doing this is to let it run over night. In each 'pass" there are a series of eight memory tests that are run, each more complicated than the previous. We used to advise letting it run a minimum of 7 passes, unless you start getting errors. We now advise at least 10 full passes. If you have errors reported, you may want to re-run the test with only one stick of ram installed, checked each stick until you isolate those that are faulty. That way you can limit your replacement to those that actually need it.

Also, I would like for you to run some hard-drive diagnostics, but I need to know more in order to point you to the right tools to download.
I may or may not be able to find out your drive maker from the model information you supply about your laptop.
Sometimes that information may be found in your Bios (bios sometimes detects it).
I will tell you how to determine your drive maker this way, after you tell me more about your laptop.

If I / we cannot determine the drive maker another way, we may need to have you open your drive bay cover.
Is the machine out of warranty? If not, for you to do this next step would void your warranty.
Are you comfortable opening the machine?
Do you understand the hazards of static electricity and know how to avoid damaging your computer with static?
Depending on your answers, I may have additional steps for you before we have you download your drive diagnostics.

Common one this one but in our from internet Windows 7 drops randomly 10 Windows upgrade after access case it wasn't a driver issue - it was a DNS issue For us this problem all seems to centre around DNS Windows seems to occasionally and randomly change which network adaptor it's going to route DNS requests to For those who don't know - DNS is a system whereby a name like Google gets converted to a unique machine address such as DNS servers are external computers that provide this service If this service doesn't work properly you won't be able to browse any Windows 10 randomly drops internet access after upgrade from Windows 7 websites properly One solution if you're using WiFi is to disable your Ethernet adaptor in Windows by going into Control Panel - gt Network Connections This will force Windows to always use your WiFi connection for DNS requests So how about if you use your Local Area Connection for something else - maybe for NAS Network Attached Storage such as an external hard drive My father has such a set-up with a static IP address at each end so that he can access shared storage However for some reason Windows was asking this connection for DNS which obviously wouldn't work You can confirm this by opening a Windows command window and typing nslookup and pressing Enter If it shows the IP address of your LAN adaptor instead of the Wireless adaptor this is what's happening The fix is to go into your Local Area Network adaptor Properties same menu as shown in the picture above then go to Internet Protocol Version and click Properties then click Advanced then select the DNS tab If there are any entries in the quot DNS server addresses in order of use quot box then click on each in turn and click Remove It would be worth making a note of anything in there before you Remove them just in case Note that if you access a share on an Ethernet link by a share name e g Share xxx then you may need to change this to use the device's IP address e g share Hope this helps - it sorted out our network problems immediately as Windows then always used the only DNS server it knew about which was the WiFi one For reference this was a non-Broadcom WiFi dongle and updating all the drivers both for the WiFi and the LAN made no difference - it was definitely down to the DNS issue Good luck all Richard

A:KVM Switches

I'm looking to buy a KVM switch. I want to be able to plug in my 1 monitor, logitech G15 keyboard, my Mx518 mouse, and two computers.

The problem I'm seeing when trying to select the right switch for me, is the fact that the g15 requires usb 2.0 to fully function and on top of that, a lot of power relatively speaking. Now, I know for a fact that it will have all basic functions with usb 1.1 drivers--but I want full function!

All of the switches I have been looking at are usb 1.0 or 1.1: example
For that example I had to ask their tech support what the usb technology was and I was told: "usb 1.1. That is all that's need for a keyboard to function."

Not only are most affordable--for my situation--switches usb 1.0 but they have no power cords as all the power is acquired through the usb connection supposedly.


So It seems my question is going to fall down to how usb works. If I plug my g15 and mouse into the main box of a kvm switch and it is a usb 1.0 port receiving the information (the switch is 1.0 and the keyboard is 2.0 for full functions)and then being sent out on a usb cable to a computer, will the computer receive the original usb 2.0 information? Or will it be reduced to 1.0, ie: my g15 will revert to basic function with no lcd display?

It seems logical that you can't reduce the quality of incoming info then reestablish it to the higher quality later on unless the middle device understands that higher level of quality; of course, in that situation it would never reduced the info.




By small chance, I hope there is someone out there with a g15 who uses a kvm switch and can give me some info.
I'm also just looking for any ideas and opinions from anyone.

Thank you.

It could be a number of things, but try running Memtest 1st to see if it is the RAM.

You can make a bootable Floppy, or CD. Just go into BIOS and make sure 1st boot Device is whatever you created.

Post back if it passes, get new RAM if it fails!

Hi all,

I have started to have a problem as indicated above, started today. I will be playing merrily away and the pc will just turn off as if the power has been cut. It seems to happen only when i am playing games, noted in FEAR, Sniper Elite and Quake 4 so far. I cant make it happen when using Win xp normally.
Before i go and start purchasing new psu and a bag load of new ram mods, can anyone suggest anything that i can try to pinpoint the prob ??

I have monitored the temps across the pc, they dont appear to be getting very high, (middle of a FEAR fire fight cpu at 41)

I have checked my drivers etc, they all appear to be up to date (attached Dxdiag if thats of any help).

System : Athlon 3500XP, radeon x850xp, 1024 mb ram, Win xp, Audigy 2 plat pro SC.

Any help would be most appreciated.
Cheers

A:PC switches itself off !!

How do you get 41C, during your game, do you have a case display? If so, I think that's just displaying the internal case temperature not your CPU.(depends on the case and mobo though). It is standard prob/symptom of overheated CPU, the system just shuts down!. Did you try removing side panel and blowing a fan on it?

Hello,

I'm looking at purchasing a 24 Port LAN Switch and the ones I've had experience so far are extremely loud. This switch won't be rack mounted and it will be physically in an office so noise is an issue.

Does anyone have any suggestions for a switch that is "somewhat" quiet?

Thanks,

Izzy

Loud?? sorta of a new one on me.. Like you mean the fan for the unit is overly noisy?

I mostly work with Cisco equipment and the PC's are usually the louder of all of the computer equipment in the area.

Bad thing on that note is that Cisco can be a little pricey.

I am trying to help a friend with a KVM switch to use the same monitor for both his PC and laptop. My question, can he use only the monitor function on the switch and leave the (single) keyboard and mouse alone. That is -- if he is using the laptop, he will the keyboard on it and when using the PC- he will use that keyboard.

Also, any suggestion on a KVM switch?

Hello, I am new here but am hoping I can get some help.

When I play a certain game (have done virus / spyware scan and pc is clean, game is system resource intenesive though.)at random times the PC will just switch off. (power light blinking on and off)

I have to unplug it from the mains for about 5 seconds to stop the light.
But if I just switch it back on, it starts to power up then after 2 seconds switches straight back off again.

To get it to come back on completely I have to unplug the power from one of my Harddrives.

Same happens if I just switch the pc off, I have to unplug one of the harddrives to be able to switch it back on.

Now is this the HD failing, or is it fault with the PSU?

Any help is much appreciated

Thanks
James
 

A:Pc Switches Off

You said you have to disconnect a HDD to get it to work. and that this only happens when you play a certain game. First off. check your PSU stats against your video Card. how much you vid card requires and how much your PSU puts out. not just wattage but Volts per rail.

| Output | +3.3V | +5V | +12V1 | +12V2 | + 12V3 | +12V4 | -5V | -12V |5Vsb
750W 24A 30A 18A 18A 18A 18A/22A - 0.5A 3.0A

This is what mine looks like you should have something similar to it on your PSU or the Box your bought it in( if its not OEM or you still have the Box); Also you should be able to get this info from your PSU manufacturer. this info is very important, your video card needs so many amps on a rail, if it shares a rail then it will power done, but usually you will get a notice before it shuts it down letting you know there isnt enough power for the vid card. So I dont think its that but as it happens in Game make sure you Vid card is on its own Rail. I have 4 12V rails and I highlighted Rail 2 in Green.

Second thing you can check is how many HDD's you have on a rail. check the net for limitation but usually its hard to overload a rail with HDD's alone on the provided Molex connections. usually 3 per rail. Faster drives, Raptors, use more power so be aware of these too.

Third it may be an all around psu failure. check the power requirements you need Here
This will give you an idea of what you need under load.

Forth Check your CPU and PSU for Dust, possible overheating shutdown safety mechanism. If its caked with dust get a can of Air or compressor and blow it out. And make sure not to spin the fans as the bearings could be blown to death.

Consequently I was wondering if there are any small 3-port (or more) ethernet switches that do NOT require a power supply or am I in a dream world?... Alternatively does anyone know of a cheap PCI adapter with a switch built in?... It only need be 10/100.. Don't need gigabit speed...

This looks like a malware/ trojan or a PSU problem. Run a MBAM scan, if theres a spare PSU, check with that.

In any case, since it coincides with windows updates, turn off automatic windows updates first.

Turn off Windows automatic updating in Windows 7

If the problem goes away, we know it has something to do with the updates.

Try booting into safe mode by pressing F8 repeatedly on startup and choosing the safe mode command line. When it boots into that, type in appwiz.cpl, and press enter. That should bring up the add/remove programs thing. Try uninstalling it from there. I think it's still safe mode though, so I don't know if it will work.

Try reading this thread. See if that helps.

It's not cost effective to put new hardware in a 6 year old computer. You can buy a new or semi used one for the same price at places like Craigslist. If a PC switches off, it is usually heat related. If your tech put a new CPU fan on, did he put thermal paste between the Heat Sync and the Fan? (this dissipates the heat, very important). Has the tech checked the temperatures in the Bios? Ask these questions before he does anything else. And check out the price of a new/used computer.

I am about to expand the number of networked computers at work from 4 to approx 20 while at the same time upgrading to an ADSL connection. When going to buy more hubs, it was suggested that switches may be better. Why? My understanding is hubs work at the physical level and switches at the data level. What's the advantage of a switch?
 

A:switches vs hubs

The big difference is speed and possibly distance. A hub essentially just connects the wires so data can be passed between the connected devices. All devices plugged into a hub will share available bandwidth and will receive all data passed through the hub no matter which computer it was aimed at. A switch repeats all data to the appropriate port so each port gets it's own bandwidth and data is only sent to the computer it was intended for.

DISCLAIMER: I believe this info to be correct but I an not an expert in this area so if someone feels that I erred please let me know.

Hi,
Well i wanted to connect around 20 computers to a local LAN that would then be connected to the main server and finally to the Internet. I am new to this stuff so dont have any idea as what to do.
Do i use routers or combination of router and switches.
Do I connect the computers wirelessly to the router or if not since most routers have only four ethernet ports than what should i do, if i want to connect the computer via ethernet cable. Please give detail of both options.
If i am using a private address say 10.0.0.0/8, how do i make an addressing scheme for the LAN for each PC.
thanks in advance, any help will be apprciated.

Sounds like a homework assignment. If it is, pay attention in class and this stuff will be easy.

Hi all,
My PC began getting hot pretty quickly a couple of months ago and subsequently triggers the safety 'switch-off' every time I try to start it up.
I've checked the fans, cleaned the inside of the PC, thermite paste seems to be fine, and I moved an intake fan to the back and made it an exhaust (bizarrely the company who built the PC didn't give it an exhaust!)
Despite all this it still becomes hot very quickly and switches off - I'm certain it's a heat problem (as opposed to, say, a PSU issue) because when I take the side of the case off and manually train a desktop fan on the PC it works without error.
Does anyone have any possible idea as to why this is happening? I only have one intake and one exhaust, but that has served me for nearly two years now and the PC isn't overclocked or anything like that.
Many thanks!

A:PC overheats and switches off

If you install software such as CPUID HWMonitor you might be able to see what component is overheating. This could be caused by a fault in a component.
If this problem persists I'd recommend contacting the seller of the PC and asking for a replacement or for your money back. If you live within the UK this fault that you desribe would make the product unfit for purpose which is in violation of the 'Supply of Goods and Services Act 1982 4.5'

i cant figure this out. i have a router and out of the router i have connected two switches. the switches are not linked together, but have an independent cable going from the router to each switch. one switch is an 8 port and one is a 16 port. i have three computers and and printer connected to the 8 port switch and everything works including the internet. however, the computers connected to the 16 port say they are connected, but i cannot get online.

I have changed all the cables and even exchanged the 16 port switch. still no internet.

what am i doing wrong or how do i troubleshoot.

thanks.

Both switches are Netgear and are new.

Thanks.

Hi....have decided to get a KVM switch, I need to hook up two pcs to one monitor and I think this will really do the trick. Belkin has been recommended to me and I've looked around on the Web and they seem to have a great reputation...prices are decent too. Have also looked at D-Link and Iogear, but haven't been crazy about what I've read (buyers' ratings). Office Max has a Belkin 2-Port switch for 20 bucks, with PS/2 cables attached (which is exactly what I need). Which is better....the one with cables included (cables are separate), or cables attached? I would think built-in cables would be lots better in the long run. Newegg has some that look really good too...& their prices are really affordable.

Does anyone have any info/experience on these KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) switches? Sure would appreciate some guidance on this.

Thanks!

I have had this problem with my laptop Windows XP (which I bought back in late 2001) for a while and just sort of put up with it but now I am wondering what could be causing it. When I watch a video on youtube.com or play a soccer game through the internet on gamesheep.com or put in a DVD in, my computer switches off! No shutdown, just a straight switch off. This happens occasionally when I play the soccer game but if it is a you tube video(like a tv show) or a DVD it is more than certain the computer will switch off suddenly after a few minutes into the viewing of it. Any ideas why this is happening? Cheers for any help!

This laptop is only a few months old. Recently, in most cases when the battery goes down to exactly 24%, it switches off. It does not go into energy saving or hibernation, it simply switches off, losing all unsaved user data. Destroying the user's data is about the worst crime in the computer world, so this needs some reaction, apart from the fact that battery run time is shorter than promised. I have run through the battery recalibration exercise (charge fully while off, boot, go into safe mode, let the battery run empty) to no avail. Is there any better method for battery recalibration on this computer? The first information I need to localise the fault is whether the electronics responsible for shutting down are in the battery or in the computer. Please let me know, if anyone knows.

A:PC switches off on it's own accord!

Welcome to TechSpot

Open the PC. Upon booting, check that all fans (especially on the CPU) come on.
Once your PC has been running for say about an hour, reboot it, go immediately into the BIOS and check the temperatures.
Alternatively, go to www.lavalys.com and get the free Everest Home Edition. This can also show you the CPU and mobo temperatures.
Could be your CPU is overheating. Are there any dustbunnies in your PC and/or that CPU-fan?

would connecting 2 12port hubs (10/100) to a switch 5 port split the hubs to a 50mbps connection?
 

A:Switches with 2 10/100 Hubs

Depends on what kind of traffic it will be.

If both hubs want to talk to the same device attached to the switch all the time then you will get 50Mbit per hub on average.

Assuming your network looks like this:

hub
\
switch - uplink
/
hub

If both hubs want to talk to the uplink all the time then on average the speed per hub will be less than 50Mbps. If the hubs want to talk to each other for example then the speed between them will be 100Mbit.

You say you have tried the monitor on another pc and it does the same thing. Its the monitor that is at fault for sure, it could be caused by a failing component or a dry solder joint. Monitors contain extremely dangerous voltages even when powered down. Only a monitor expert should open it up.

2) Is it as simple as flipping a switch while both computer are on without having to reboot
3) Any recomendations for one brand over another

3) Linksys. This one comes with the cables as well.
