I have a bit of a strange issue with my computer. Forgive me if I'm a little too descriptive, but I'm not sure which details are relevant and which are not for such a problem. First, the specs:

Model: eMachines T2984
Operating System: Windows XP Service Pack 2
Processor: Intel Celeron D Processor 340, 2.93 GHZ, 256K L2 Cache, 533 MHZ FSB
Power Supply Unit: Bestec Model: ATX-250-12E REV: P7
Motherboard: I can't tell, but it appears to be an Intel motherboard by the number of Intel labels on it
RAM: 512 MB DDR SD originally, added 1 GB a couple of months ago
Let me know if you need anything else...

Yesterday, I got home from shopping around 1PM, and I tried to start the computer. I pushed the power button, and nothing happened. I checked all of the cords, and they were all plugged in. Not knowing what else to do, I opened up the case to see if there was something obviously wrong. The only thing that I noticed (other than a bunch of dust) was that the power supply unit was still hot. I shut the computer down about 5 hours earlier after about 20 minutes of use, so it seemed strange that the power supply was still hot. I unplugged the computer just in case there was some sort of fire hazard.

At this point, I called a friend who suggested that the problem might be with the motherboard or the power supply unit.

A few hours later, I plugged it back in to try to get it to work. As soon as I plugged it in, the entire unit suddenly started "running" by itsel... Read more

A:Computer Doesn't Turn on, Fans and Some Lights Turn on Automatically

I would suspect that the Power Supply Unit (PSU) is going south. If you have a spare one laying around, install it and see if the problem goes away.
You can buy a new,better PSU from Newegg for about $40.00. I have used a Thermaltake 430 watt in one of my machines for some time now and it works well.
You will have to check the size of your PSU to be sure a new one will fit into the eMachine.
Here's the page with that PSU on it. It's the last one on the list.

Hello,I have had my laptop for over a year now and there haven't been serious problems until today. While it was on (almost fully charged) and there was just some music playing, it suddenly turned off and now it doesn't turn on at all. Nothing happens when I press the power button and there is no light when I plug in the charger cable. I tried removing the batteries' cables (and plugging them back in) as suggested in a couple of posts I read and using the reset button but nothing works. Could anyone suggest anything else I could do to make it turn on? Thank you.

Is there a way to make an XP home machine turn on automatically?

I need to do this because the Pc doesnt get used much and if im not around no one will do a virus scan so i need to set it as a task, but you can bet the PC will be off when its set for.

Also its just the one Admin account on there with no other accounts but all of a sudden we are not allowed to change the background due to not having permission to do so.

We had permission before.

So any idea on these 2 problems will be great.

thanks in advance

A:Set a PC to turn on Automatically

On the first point, I can't think of a way. However, as it's not used much, it's not likely to get infected much either. Why not just do a virus scan every time you use it?

On the second point, I'm not in Vista at present so I can't check, but all users, including admin, are logged in with User Access Control. You would need to turn this off in User Accounts to change permissions.

I'm using Windows 7 x64 Ultimate. I have my power options set to turn off the monitor after 20 minutes and the computer is not set to sleep or hibernate.

When over 20 minutes has expired, the monitors do not turn off. On rare occasion they do, though (by 'they' I am referring to dual monitors).

I Googled this issue and tried disabling "Allow this device to wake the computer" on the properties page for that network device in device manager. This didn't help. What could be preventing my displays from automatically turning off? Note that during this time I have torrents running, so I'm not sure if it is indeed still the network connectivity that is causing this issue. I never had this kind of problem in Windows XP.

A:Monitors will not automatically turn off

There's probably some software running that's preventing the monitors to shut off. Maybe a software emulated a user's presence.

Could be that the system detect faint mouse movement even when it's not really moving. If you are using a very high dpi settings, try lowering it to test.

Think of other things along these lines. Use a 1 minute timer to shut off the monitors to test out things you try.

A:Can I have fans turn off automatically in sleep

If by sleep you mean standby, then you should be able to do that. In the bios, you should be able to select the suspend mode. Chose s3 rather than s1. s1 leaves the fans on, s3 turns them off.

I upgraded to Windows 8.1 and all has been great except one thing. When I leave the computer for about 10 minutes or so, the display turns off like it is supposed to. If I want to turn the display back on though, I find I'm unable to with the mouse, keyboard, or power button. It's like it is stuck in limbo and I have to restart the PC. What's wrong with it?

A:Display won't turn back on after automatically turning off

IS this a Dell? Some Dell computers will go into some damned low-power mode, and the power light will change to Orange. The only way I have been able to fix it, was to put in a new power supply. I've done this for 2 workstations already.

Check your Power Light, is it Green or Orange, or blinking? If the computer is in sleep mode, it will Blink on and off once a second. Other blinking patterns are error codes. Sometimes a system will just get stuck in Sleep mode and you have to force it back on.

When you are trying to wake the system, does the Monitor come back on? I've had computers stall like this.

Try changing your advanced power settings:

Usually you can get to it by Control Panel, Power, Power Scheme, and open your scheme and go into Advanced. Try changing the values for "hard Drive Power Down", change it to 45 minutes. Also, try setting it so that the Monitor does not turn off, just enable toe screensaver after 15 minutes or so, then test it, make sure it recovers from Screensaver.

I don't know if you are just telling your monitor to go off or if you are allowing the computer to go into Sleep mode, I would change the Monitor Off to "Never" and just tell it to sleep after an hour of non-use.

Just try different variations, with the monitor turning off or staying on. You can always choose a Blank Screensaver.

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.

What exactly 'jumps backwards and forwards', is it the mouse or the webpage?

I know Google and some other Search Engines have a function in javascript where if you use the 'Up' or 'Down' arrow-key, it will select the next or previous search result.
Google's blue arrows: I hate it, turn it off! - State of Digital

For Google, the only way i know to disable it would be to disable 'Instant Search' or Javascript.
In my opinion though, it is a pretty useful feature if i do not have a mouse in hand.

This is a recent problem, been using this monitor/pc set up for half a year without any problems, now all of a sudden if my computer is shut down for any period of time and turned back on, the monitor will not display anything until I unplug my usb mouse or keyboard. Doesn't matter which one but I have to unplug one of them and plug it back in and the monitor immediate starts working after that.

I have unplugged the monitors hdmi cable and plugged it back in and that doesn't work, unplugged the cable going to the video card and plugged it back in and that doesn't make it work either. It seems to only work exclusively with the usb peripherals unplug/replug for some odd reason. Restarting the computer and putting it in sleep mode then waking it works perfectly fine.

I am not sure what the problem is, the power supply is relatively new, replaced the original one 3 months ago, but I suppose there is still a chance it could go bad but everything works perfectly fine. I play World of Warcraft, Guild Wars 2, and Tera just fine. I also play more intensive games like the new skyrim special addition with about a dozen mods, fallout 4 & Witcher 3 with mods, things that will make the CPU/GPU draw more power and there has never been a crash or noticeable issue.

Whenever i turn on my computer, it loads the desktop, then a few seconds after it has loaded, it automatically restarts

This happens in a repeated cycle

However, if i make it so the computer has a lot to load early on, such as clicking on firefox or media player a few times, it seems to load these programs, obviously very slowly, and then the computer does not restart itself. IS this something to do with the computer being too busy to "think" about restarting?

I searched the forums, and google, but none of the problems i found seemed to restart in the same circumstances, and they didnt say anything about loading programs early on

I have turned off "auto restart on system failiure", as this seems to be common in the restarting posts, but not tested what happens apon turning the computer on yet.
Also, if this is the problem, then i don't like the idea that my system is failing every time i turn it on.

My Dell N7110 installed Win 10 free update nicely. Had some minor quirks but fixed and had to install updated software for HP products. Problem arose, when during Anniversary update, my mouse started connect/disconnect. Traced it to a bad wire at the mouse. Bought a new Microsoft wireless mouse. Plugged it in-works. But--on "Retarts" for installation of software, and on updates, at Restart black screen got message "unable to find operating system". Hard boot-started and loaded flawlessly. Tried the "restart" from the power icon-"can't find operating system". After three days of scouring the net, pulled the "dongle" out after restart screen opened, restarted normally. Went into "Bluetooth controls" turned off "Bluetooth" and tried restart, worked normally even with dongle in. And, the wireless mouse works fine. I think having the Bluetooth on and having a Bluetooth transmitter, combined to mix up the computers bios. Is there a fix for this, so I can leave the Bluetooth on for my other devices and still use the wireless mouse? For the moment, I went out and bought a new "old school" wired USB mouse and there are no issues with the Bluetooth on and the wired mouse with "restarts".

I have tried to do a system repair, system image restore, but the same thing happens. I did not want the start up repair to happen it just happened by itself. Please help!

A:When I try turn my system on, startup repair runs automatically

Did you let it run the startup repair ? I would let it run to see if there is an issue, let it fix it, and hopefully your problem will be resolved.

I like to leave my X1 Carbon Gen 6 running, but I do not want the display to be on. On my ThinkPad X280 and my other X1 Carbon Gen5 I have an option to "Turn off the display" as seen in the side-by-side picture below.  I have tried to re-installed the OS on the Gen6 unit, but this hasn't helped. Can anybody kind person out there please help me and confirm for me if this feature still works on your Generation 6 model X1 Carbon?  Thank you all in advance!

I tried checking out the flex 4 fix, but the link to the driver doesn't work. I keep putting it in tablet mode to draw and use, but the dang thing doesn't turn off. Which can be very annoying when you're drawing with it in your lap and it keeps hitting random keys. Can someone tell me which of the stupid bloatware needs to be kept and uninstalled for this thing?

Hi

I have configured ad-hoc network for internet sharing from my PC. Normally I start it by
netsh wlan start hostednetwork
As I noticed the hotspot is automatically turned off when I turn off WiFi adapter. So I have two questions:

How do I turn on WiFi by command line, so that I can control it from various commandline scripts?
How do I configure the script for WiFi for autostarting hotspot whenever WiFi is turned on?

netsh wlan ...

Ad-Hoc requires that you restart the session each time.

Connectify pro has an auto start option that does this but it's a paid version, connectify lite is free but I'm not sure if has auto start.

Download - Connectify
