I have a problem with my computer. It automatically turns off few seconds after I turned it on. I tried rebooting it so many times but still the same thing happened. Anyone knows the reason why this thing is happening on my pc? Is this a virus or my pc needs to be reformatted?
Computer automatically turns off few seconds after turned on.
There could be a lot of reasons why a computer will shut down or turn off automatically right after turning it on. We can’t just say it is overheating as you mentioned that you just turned it on when this happened. Have you tried turning your computer on a safe mode? Was the issue the same? How about turning it on without any external devices or peripherals attached to it, like printer, internet, speakers, USB flash drive, or even external hard drive? Did the same thing happen? How about the RAM? All of these are just some parts that may affect your computer’s performance but you will need to try a lot of things to isolate the issue further. I would recommend that if you have other ways of going online, to go to http://windows.microsoft.com/en-IN/windows7/Diagnostic-tools-to-use-in-safe-mode for windows diagnostic tool which can help you test your computer’s components. Or you may also bring your computer to a technician to help you do a tower-tear down and check all possible causes why it is automatically turning off upon starting.
