E-MACHINE SHUTS DOWN ON ITS OWN WHILE I AM USING IT THEN STARTS BEEPING ONCE EVERY 4 SECS


Answers :

Hi\012

First thing i would check would be to see if the inside of your computer has a dust accumulation, or the CPU fan and or heat sink are clogged with dust, this will also cause shutdowns because the computer is designed to shut down if the CPU gets too hot.
With the computer off and unplugged-----
I would check the back of the computer where the exhaust fan is for the power supply to see if the fan blades are dirty. A little dirt is normal.
Remove the side access cover on the case and see how dusty it is. If there is a lot of dust would recommend having this cleaned, or using compressed air to clean it out. (best done outside in an open area lol)
If it is clean, i would recommend plugging everything back in, but leaving the side cover off, make sure that the CPU fan is spinning. if it is making any odd noises (other than the normal fan whine) or if it appears to stall, it would be best to have this replaced.


If you have added any extra hard drives, dvd drives, or PCI/PCI express addin cards, these all consume power and can overload a system if the power supply is not rated to handle the power that is being drawn from it. This can also cause shutdowns

If everything checks out, i would start to suspect a system board issue.
a BIOS reflash may resolve this but if you arent familiar with how this is done it would be best to take it to a shop, or have someone you know that is computer saavy perform this for you. its nothing complicated to do this.
If a BIOS reflash doesnt solve this, then without being able to look at it, i would have to suspect a failing motherboard.


hope this helps, and if i have helped you please dont forget to rate.
