Arkan Posted October 19, 2006 Share Posted October 19, 2006 I've got a friend whose computer keeps shutting down when windows is trying to boot up. When it is restarted a message is displayed along the lines of "The computer was shut down due to a previous thermal event..." I did a little research and I found it could be bad capacitors in the motherboard or bad chassis fans. I checked the fans, and they are working. No idea how to check the former, though. The weird thing is, it boots just fine to safe mode. It even worked a couple times regularly after going into safe mode, but then it started having the same problem... Any ideas? "Of course the people don't want war. But after all, it's the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it's always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it's a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger." - Herman Goering at the Nuremberg trials "I have also been slowly coming to the realisation that knowledge and happiness are not necessarily coincident, and quite often mutually exclusive" - meta Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
