Just got hold of a second hand SHUTTLE pc but found when I turn it on the fans all start and I can hear the harddrive being accessed but then it just turns itself off. Anyone know what could be causing this?

You need to start removing things, to narrow it down. :flowers:

Take out everything except the CPU, memory and video (if it is also on the motherboard use the one on the motherboard). :thumbsup:


Let us know then if it still gives you trouble. :trumpet:


Good luck.

If it's the Shuttle I'm thinking about, pay careful attention when taking it apart
Things are tight in there and you want to put it back together the same way so you don't mess up the airflow

Thanks for the replies. Yeah, things are a little packed in there to say the least!! Anyway, opened her up, looked around, could'nt see anything unusual so I put the cover back on and it booted just fine!!! Must have been a short of some kind. :thumbsup:
