I have a Dell Inspiron 518 desktop Pc. The computer worked fine for a long tme, then the next day i pushed the power button and nothing happens. i tried using another working power cable but it did not work. The only light that comes on is a yellowish green light on the back of the tower just below when the power cable gets plugged in. I took the front off and used my finger to push the button on the inside but it doesnt turn on. Any help is very much appreciated. Thank you.

i recently bought a new video card, processor,psu and motherboard.what seems to be the problem? i really dont have any idea why my systems shuts down. i replaced the new psu with another one but it turned off again. the technician revived it but after hes gone it turns off it the mainboard or the psu? or any component?thnx.

A:Why does my system shuts down automatically and doesnt turn on again?

Firstly, are you sure the PSU you installed is of sufficient wattage? If it's not, that's your problem. Also make sure your PSU's ATX motherboard connector is securely locked into your motherboard.

If those are not the problem then when you start your computer, does it POST (Beep at startup)? If it does, describe the beeps it gives, long and short in order. These beeps are the power-on self test which tests your hardware to ensure it works, if something isn't working it will give a certain beep sequence which tells you what the problem is if you know your BIOS's beep codes.

Also, along with the beep sequence, we need to know what BIOS you are running.

A:Desktop shuts down and doesnt turn off until after a few minutes

1. Welcome to Tech Support Guy

2. I think I am correct in saying that Dell does NOT list drivers for that computer for Windows 8, indeed your post appears to indicate this.
The fact you have managed apparently to find drivers that work - and frequently Windows 7 drivers will - does not mean that Windows 8 will like them and you may well encounter problems, as indeed it appears you are

3. This is what concerns me most
Repair HDD Sectors using a third party bootable program like Partition MagicClick to expand...

What please do YOU mean by repair HDD sectors - as if you refer to a sector listed as a bad sector and it is really IS a bad sector, in that the part of the disc cannot retain data, then there is NO program that can REALLY repair it.

In reference to the following posting,
I am not the individual who initiated this query but I did have the same issue with my Dell Inspiron 5547, where it wouldn't turn on after a power button shut down.
I followed Hema's instructions by removing the battery and charger and then holding down the power button for a few seconds, and then putting back the parts. It seemed to have done the trick... At least for now. Is this just a temporary fix?
While doing a Google search for a solution I seem to have encountered a number of people who experienced the same issue. Can you also explain why this happens with this particular Dell laptop? Is it a model flaw?
Thank you

I am using a Satellite Pro S500-139 and am having problems with my F9 key. When i type my palm touches the mouse and send the cursor somewhere else on the page. I have reinstalled the ALPS pointing device and now have access to the advanced setting that i wasn't able to get.

Although i can adjust the sensitivity etc i would really like to be able to use the shortcut to disable the mouse momentarily whilst typing. My keyboard shows that if i press fn and F9 the i should be able to disable the mouse however the function doesnt work. all the other F9 functions appear to work.

Do you know if there is a resolution to this?

I am running windows 7 pro 32 bit service pack 1.

I recently upgraded Windows 7 to Windows 10. When I power down the system from the menu, my computer does not completely turn off. The procedure I use is described below:

Click Windows_Start_button > Power > Shutdown

The system closes applications and appears to initiate a shutdown procedure. Everything appears to be shut off, but my mouse is still lit up. I do notice that the fan stops and everything else appears to be completely shut down. When I was running Windows 7 before my upgrade, my system completely powered down.

I have a dual boot system with Linux, and when I power down from Linux, the shutdown is complete, so I don't think I accidentally did anything to the hardware or BIOS.

Has anyone else experienced this? I'm pretty sure there is some tweak in Windows 10 that would fix this, but I haven't found it yet. Thanks for any suggestions you might be able to offer.

A:Power down button does not completely turn computer power off

I found the solution on another thread. If you have this problem try the following:
1. Log in as an administrator.
2. Right click the Menu button.
3. Left click -> Control Panel > Power Options > Choose what the power button does > Change settings that are currently unavailable
4. Uncheck the box next to Turn on fast startup (recommended)
5. Make sure Hibernate is unchecked.
6. Left click Save changes.
The next time you shut down the computer, it will be completely powered off. At least this worked on my machine.

Had a flawless Vista install then made some major changes to programs and thought a fresh install was in order.

After fresh install I noticed that the OS was sometimes getting stuck closing down... it would lock and I'd have to hit the reset button.

Then... I shut it off one evening and walked away... the next morning I noticed that even though the monitor was not getting a video signal and it appeared that the os was shut down... all power to fans and peripherals was still on.

Now, even though I have done another fresh install... my pc wont power off.

Yes, I am selecting power off not sleep mode and do not have hibernation enabled.

So I have an ASUS P4C800-E motherboard in a system that a built a few years back. It worked fine but the system has been sitting in my basement for a year or two unused.

I decided to take the components and drop them in a new case.

I have hooked everything back up properly (i think) but when I hit the power button, the cpu fan, power supply fan and case fans turn on for a brief second and then shut off. (the green standby light on the motherboard is on)

What do I do?

I think you can tell from my question I am exteremly amatuer at this. Simple explanations please...

A:Turn power on... fans start up then power shuts off in 1 second

With it shutting down after 1sec, I would check that the hsf is plugged in and working. If there is no fan input ie fan speed, most boards shutdown. In addition that the hsf is installed correctly. If it is loose, etc you will have problems. Most of the time when the hsf is loose, it shuts down in about 5~10sec not 1sec. I tend to think it is more of a shorting problem of the board to the case.

If that is not the case, I would attempt to pw ON the system outside of the case. There are complete instructions in a guide at the top of the forum. It is called troubleshooting guide for problem builds.

Hello everyone.
Ive read this forum but im not seeing the same situation that im dealing with so here it is. When I turn the power on, the light on the motherboard comes on the fan spins briefly but that's all that happens. The drive lights don't come on, the cd drive doesn't open, no drive checks or beeps are done. I tried all the basic power source checks listed in other posts. What is different is that sometimes the computer will complete booting up and run great. Other times I will turn it on and nothing but then within 3 to 5 minutes it will just turn on and run fine. Im trying to figure out what could be working great sometimes but then not work at all or randomly. My guess is the PSU or MB. Thanks for your thoughts

My computer suddenly shut off completely about 2 weeks ago. Then I couldn't turn it back on. In frustration, I repeatedly pressed the power on button and lo and behold, about 30 seconds worth of pushing the button convinced it to come back to life.

Then oddly enough, ever since then, the computer has been shutting off completely at random intervals and after about 30 seconds of pushing the on button, it powers up. Sometimes for 30 seconds, sometimes for up to a day. Very, very odd.

Then lately, it has been giving a disk check before entering windows. No bad sectors at all so can't figure what's going on.

Any hints?

I've checked all power connections, sniffed around for any power problems but can't figure out anything. It worked fine for about 6 months but suddenly this odd problem.

A:Computer shuts down randomly and takes about 30 secs to turn on

Sounds as though your harddrive may be about to fail

You may want to make all backups of data before it does

This problem is either
HardDrive (likely)
Heat (are all the internal fans operation ? )
You may also need to clear out all internal dust inside the computer

Hi there:

My satellite A300 fell from my desk. It was disconected.
Few hours later i wanted to turn it on but when i plug the ac cable the lights that normally comes on doesnt work.
Ive opened it to check if there was anything broken but it seems all good.
What can i do?

My battery is dead so i cant do anything with it.

A:Satellite A300 - no power lights and doesnt turn on

on this virtual way it is not easy to say what is wrong there but if there is no reaction and DC led is also not on I presume there is some problem with power supply electronic placed on the mainboard.

Visually everything can be OK but some connectors are probably damaged.
Repair (mainboard exchange) is pretty expensive so I think you should sell it on eBay and obtain other machine.

Satellite A300 is nice machine and you can get another used A300 on eBay for about 100- 150 Euros.

Try another PSU maybe yours is faulty. You said after you pressed the reset button it worked, this could be because the first time you power on computer the PSU isn't Stabilising the voltages quick enough but when you restart it has had time to Stabilise the voltages.

3- Update Drivers (Check for pending updates on the system)
4- Check for virus and malware on the system.
5- Back up date on the system reset to factory defaults.

My son's computer wouldn't shut down, it would close down the OS but the computer lights and HD would still be running. I did a scan, Ccleaner with its registry fix, and degfrag.. that made it work maybe twice. Now it is doing it again.
It refuses to turn off even with the power button (it shuts off then starts again, on its own - I am NOT pressing the "restart"). I have to unplug it from the wall to make it stop re-starting itself.
Any ideas?

Is there a way to have a computer turn on immediately once power is reaching the computer without having to press the chassis power button (ie. I turn on a power strip and the computer immediately begins booting)?

Can someone please help me. Take in mind my computer skills are just average. This isn't a problem yet, but would like to get a fix before if possible. Here it is. This laptop is only 5 to 6 months old. Windows 8. My power button that turn,s the computer on, sticks some. I have no money to take it to a shop, I was wondering if there,s a trick to fix it? Or another way to turn it on? Thanks, Chuck

A:to turn computer on ( power button )

Is your computer new and still in warranty? if the power button sticks there may be a known issue with the casing. Have you tried to reach out to the manufacture to see if there is a known issue?

I originally set my power button to "shut down" in the right click taskbar>properties>start menu>power button action

drop down menu. but now whether i choose switch user, sleep, hibernate, log off, it always shuts down. anyone know how to fix this? the button on my laptop is super sensitive and i just don't want it to power off anymore, i've accidentally hit it one too many times. thanks!

I started having this problem about days ago I run my laptop with its power cord in all the time wasn t doing anything and it had some stuff like AIM and word running and then just shut off I d HAD power won't shuts randomly down, Laptop up problems with the AC power jack coming off of the motherboard before so I assumed it was a battery thing but I hadn t gotten a battery warning Wouldn t turn on acted like it wasn t getting power even though the power CORD was lit up Took it in of course powered up for them and they found nothing wrong Has happened a few more times since then Will just randomly shut off and then not turn back on Sometimes for a few minutes sometimes hours Can I rule out viruses and anything software related since it acts like it isn t getting any power when it is off and plugged in light should be blinking Any ideas of what the problem could be Hard to diagnose when the thing acts just fine at the repair place nbsp

A:Laptop randomly shuts down, won't power up

I've been having the same problem with my laptop too. I have an IBM Thinkpad T23 and I've been running Speedfan recently and I've noticed that my CPU temp usually hovers around 154 deg. F or about 68 deg. C. I'm thinking that maybe it's the CPU overheating for the both of us. I've noticed that I can have it just sit there for over 3 days straight, but when I go to use it to write an essay or whatever, it'll shut off on me (The Prof. loves that one ). That's my reasoning on it.. and maybe that's why it didn't do that for the repair guys.

Recently I have been getting this issue more and more and its basically my pc shutting down not like when you shut it down normally or a crash or blue screen but just going down like you pulled the plug from the pc. I checked overheating in the processor and graphics card but that doesn't seem to be the case. It also only happens when playing certain games. My guess is that the power supply has gone bad and I need a new one but I'm not certain. Anybody got any idea?

A:Pc randomly shuts down like the the power shutdown

For PSU testing, I'd post over in the Internal Hardware forums for more expert advice.
As for determining the shutdowns' cause, let's try looking at these reports:
1)  Please provide this information (even though you may not be reporting BSOD's) so we can provide a complete analysis (from the Pinned Topic at the top of the forum):
2)  Please do the following:
- open Event Viewer (run eventvwr.msc from the "Run" dialog)
- expand the Custom Views category (left click on the > next to the words "Custom Views")
- right click on Administrative Events
- select "Save all Events in Custom View as..."
- save the file as Admin.evtx
- zip up the file (right click on it, select "Send to", select "Compressed (zipped) folder")
- upload it with your next post (if it's too big, then upload it to a free file-hosting service and post a link here).
FYI - If we're looking for Event ID 41 errors (unexplained shutdowns), there's more info on that here:

K wow. I was reading on the board about a guy who had the same problem. He bought a new tower and did everything as me and had same problem. As I was reading it almost near the end the guy found out what the problem was and it was bad. He said the motherboard was touching the metal inside the tower and that that way u can fry ur motherboard in secs and that's what happened to him along wid few other things connected to it. When I read that I almost got a heart attack and felt like shyt since my PC is worth some big bucks and I just bought it 6 months ago. So widout any hope left miserably feeling I unscrewed the motherboard and I have used the plastic dunno what to call it (screws) to hold up my motherboard in the air. And for the last time I decided to press the button knowing it won't work. And guess what everything turned on and I almost shyt myself instantly from the shock and happiness and almost wanted to cry. I don't know what saved me, why my motherboard didn't fry but I know I am lucky as hell like never befo. I turned on my system and eveertyhing seems to work well other than the fact that norton antivirus cant load up it's driver and my date was resetted to default but that's it for now.

Hi everyone, I bought the brand new HP Pavilion X2 from Costco few months ago, and I think i dont like the power button at all, and I find it really difficult for me to turn the tablet on even though it was being charged or not. Sometimes, it works perfectly, sometime I get failed after several attempts of pressing and holding down the power button, but no signal light occurs. I did search the problem and I think it comes from the manufacture, and one of the solution I have seen is to bring it to the store and exchange, but I bought it in Costco, Can I bring it to Costco and ask for that service ? What should I do now ?  Thanks.Nghia Huynh

Well the most likely posibilities are the Powersupply and the Motherboard. First inspect the motherboard and any other components for phyiscal signs that they have been fried (burn Marks,burnt smell).If no phisical damage is seen replace the powersupply
Here are some links to replacements.

The power button is located immediately above the  USB slots and is very easy to press. As a result, it is easy to end up hitting the power button by accident when reaching for the USB slots when the machine is tucked under a desk and you are going by touch. I've done it several times now. Would be great to move the power button to a less vulnerable location, or at least have it on less of a hair trigger so a light touch does not turn the machine off.

I used it this morning with no problems or indications of anything being wrong and turned it off when I was done, which it shut down properly. It never just turns off in the middle of gaming or anything. What could be the problem with it? Would that be the power supply? I have it plugged into a good surge protector and there was no lightning of weather effects today while I was gone. I turn it off every night before sleeping and when ever i'm done with it. Anyways, thats some usage of it. Its usually on for 6 hours a day or so and its rufly 3 weeks old. (just built). Thanks for any help you guys can give!!

I have had this problem for the last maybe 10 days, and I have even talked to customer service about it. On occasion, the laptop power cuts off at random.  The screen goes blank for about 15 seconds, then the system shuts down.  I can turn it back on, but I must verify my identity in Windows before I can proceed.  (That's why I mentioned the OS in the subject line). I chatted with customer service, which gave me a set of instructions to restart the battery.  However, I did not write those instructions down, so my attempt to reset failed.  The power cuts continue. I would like to see the instructions re-posted so I can make a note of them and try again. Thank you.

Thanks for writing to us. 
Removing the panel to take out the battery will not void the warranty as long as you don''t damage any parts inside :). 
Remove the battery and charger and hold down the power button for 10 secs then put back the parts and let us know if it worked. 
Simultaneously you can remove the memory modules as observe for any change.
Await your response.

A:Laptop randomly shuts down when running on AC power (when battery is inside)

Some batteries can't take the electricity constantly flowing threw them i suggest you take the battery out when you plug it in the wall and put it in when your on the go. You battery does work still when you unplugg it from the wall right? And im guessing when your battery starts to fail it switches to "power saver" mode instead of "high performance" mode.
so take out the battery and plug it into the wall, store the battery until well until you need it. Hope this helps.
Also could be the result of a faulty battery..How long have you had your laptop?

Hello everyone My one-year-old computer started acting up a few days ago and I'd just like to hear your opinion It all began three days ago after some Windows updates I was using my Favourites folder when it suddenly no longer responded Everything froze and you could hear something slowing down inside until only the CPU was making noise No blue screen Computer Kernel-Power reboots/shuts error randomly down, or anything just nothing at all Pressing the onn and off buttons didn't do anything for a while either until I unplugged and replugged my cable Suddenly the BIOS showed up and I rebooted the system It started a bit slower than usual and funnily enough the time and date were no longer correct from that moent on If the crash happened at say the time was still even if I had rebooted the system at around I also did two virus scans no infections found The computer also worked properly didn't Computer randomly reboots/shuts down, Kernel-Power error become hot or anything like that This happened again a few minutes later without the BIOS showing up this time and I googled around Some website led me to the Event Viewer which told me that some Kernel Power error had occurred not numbers varied too and contained 'Warning Processor-Power' messages Someone in a Facebook group told me my motherboard might not be getting enough power I don't know how the motherboard works but we have no electricity problems in the house and my battery is sitll working Microsoft forums advised me to d a System Maintenance and turn off the 'fast start-up' function which I did Then when I was listening to an album my computer suddenly switched off altogether without any warning problem or what have you as if someone had pulled the plug and battery out of it I rebooted again and tried to type something in Notepad but during that process some noise on the inside faded out again and I cuold no longer save or open any document program I could only type in Notepad What is going on here

i clicked "run" on a pop up without checking it out first, because, yes, i'm retarded. but i did, and about 3 seconds later the computer completely shut off and powered down. when i turned it on again, 1 or 2 minutes after booting up, it shut off again. this happened several times. now it won't even turn on at all. i've tried unplugging everything and waiting a while, but it still won't turn on. would a virus make this happen? or do i need a new power supply, or what?

This morning I came to my computer and it had a BSOD from my wireless adapter driver. This has happened a few times before. But when I turned it off and tried to turn it back on, it wont start! As soon as I press the power button, the lights flash and the fans get one jolt of power causing them to spin and die out immediately and then everything stops in under a seccond. What could be causing this? I did add a new new hard drive to my computer yesterday, but it has restarted fine a few times since then, and unplugging it didn't fix the problem. Other than that, I can't think of anything that is different that would be causing this. Any ideas?

First time build (September 2012). Machine has been performing flawlessly then end of September 2013 starting randomly shutting down and restarting. No particular activity will trigger this event (no BSOD). I've run memtest, chkdsk, malwarebytes, gpu-z, cpu-z, Nothing seems out of the ordinary. Temperature ranges are consistently around 26C. I've left it on for the last 48 hours with the covers off and a fan blowing directly at the inside of the case and it has shutdown 8 times. This happens even when it is idling. Truly bizarre, definitely frustrating. Need some help here isolating this "gremlin" and regaining control of my machine. I;ve attached a minitoolbox report maybe that willl help you get a better picture.

It all started when i opened some foreign file and it mustve been a virus or something. That triggered my computer to make these weird whirring clicky noises. Then my computer shut down. That day, i tryied to turn it on, it worked. However, the monitor didnt display anything. The computer was running but something to do with the bios just wasn't working.
Later on, my father fixed it.
However. NOW, the computer randomly shuts off by itself.
I'd start the computer on, and usually, the computer would start to make these noises similar to that of a computer reading a disc.
after the noises, the computer shuts off, and restarts by itself.
Anyone have any ideas?

A:[SOLVED] Button of (When I press sleep button) is not available in my Power option pr

Does the case actually have a separate Sleep Button? I suspect it's not even connected, as the motherboard manual doesn't show a connection for a Sleep Button, only a Power Button.
Windows Power Options won't list it, as it doesn't exist.

If you have a Sleep Button on the keyboard, it might not be listed in Power Options either. That would be up to the Driver software to add that option. You may have to use the software that came with the keyboard to configure the sleep button on the keyboard.

I have a compaq presario v2570nr laptop. I have replaced the motherboard, cpu, memory, fans, and hard drive. To no avail it still shuts down after about 3 minutes of operation. Whether you are in bios, xp setup from disk, safe mode, or normal mode. I thought what the hell, I will put a hard drive in that has 98 loaded on it. IT WORKS!!! 98 ran on this laptop for about 2 hrs then I shut it down. It didnt shut down automatically. Thought maybe it was the hard drive afterall, so I started loading xp on the same hard drive that ran 98 for 2 hrs. and after 3 mins it shut off. Someone mentioned that maybe it isnt xp came with xp on it. I need to know why any kind of xp activity makes it shut off abruptly, and 98 will run it no problems. Thanks for any help.

Hi, I am having a problem with booting up my computer. Everytime I turn the computer on, the HDD light comes on but the power light doesn't. When I press the reset button, everything starts working and the computer boots up. I think the problem might be the wires that get plugged into the motherboard. I don't know how to correctly install them and the manual that came with the motherboard doesn't help at all. I have a GA-7IXE4 motherboard with 1000 MHZ AMD and 256 MB RAM. If anybody could assist me with this problem, please do so. If anybody knows how the wires are suppose to be plugged into the motherboard correctly, please let me know because I think that might be the main problem. Thanks.
