OS X Server :: Computer Shuts Down - Right After Start Up

Feb 25, 2008

My comp. has worked perfectly, Then I installed some updates, Itunes i think? And the comp. Shut down, and when it restarts it works for a min or two, then freezes, and i get the beach ball, that just spins around and around forever.

if I don't try to open anything, or do anything when i restart it, it will just shut down, and restart, then when it comes to the Grey screen with the apple and the little circle below it, the circle looks all pixilated, and just freezes

that is the version its on (Taken two days ago, and sent to a buddy for other reasons completely)

MacBook :: Unable To Use System With Battery / Computer Shuts Down Hwen Start From Battery

Apr 18, 2008

My battery needed replacing for a couple of months before i dropped it from about knee level onto a sidewalk. After the drop I got the not charging icon. I thought maybe the battery had just finally died. so I did not panic about the no charge. The laptop works fine when plugged in to power with the old battery on or no battery at all. Not at all when unplugged.

When I put the brand new battery on the lap top, the computer shuts down halfway through boot up. I tried holding the power button down through boot up reset, as well as removing all power (plug and battery) and holding down the power button for 10 seconds reset.

MacBook Air :: It Shuts Off And Cannot Start

Jul 5, 2012

I have a late 2010 MacBook Air.Unfortunately, I'm in a country without an Apple store or any kind of official Apple support (no phone number to call).

2 days ago, I plugged in a little USB modem device (wireless is rare here) and my laptop shut down suddenly. It refused to restart at all until I did an SMC reset and then it was working fine (including with the USB modem plugged in).

However, the next day, the same shut-down occurred (when I plugged in the modem again) and now SMC reset is not doing anything. I've held down the start button for a very long time and there aren't any signs of life. The light on the charger shows that it is charging when I plug it in.

Info:MacBook Air (13-inch Late 2010)

Power Mac G5 :: Shuts-down A Few Seconds After Start-up?

Nov 21, 2007

I've got a strange issue with my PowerMac dual 1.8GhZ and I can't figure out where it's coming from.Last Saturday I experienced a Kernell Panic while using Safari and the Dictionary (MacOS 10.5.1).Since then, whenever I try to start my computer, it shuts itself down while the grey screen with the Apple logo is on screen. However, this isn't always the case:I can use my computer 'normally' if I press the option key at start-up and manually choose my startup disk.

I can boot from a Panther or Tiger installation disk, but not Leopard.If I try the hardware test the computer shuts itself down in the middle of the test.TechTool works and didn't find any issues with my computer. Nor did Disk Utility.I tried to erase both my internal hard-drives and do a clean install of Tiger, but the problem is still there (I have to press option at startup).I tried to reset the PRAM and Cuda/PMA. Doesn't resolve the issue.When I tick 'Restart automatically after power failure' in Energy Saver my Mac will indeed restart, meaning it thinks there was a power failure.Any idea what it might be? And why it only happens in certain situations?Do you think it's a hardware or a software issue?

Information:
PowerMac G5 dual 1.8GhZ
Mac OS X (10.5.1)

Mac Pro :: Shuts Down Instead Of Sleeping Then Needs To Be Unplugged To Start Up

Jan 25, 2010

This is a new problem, started immediately after moving the computer gently a foot to the left...

When computer goes to sleep it shuts down.

Then when I press the power button I hear the mechanical click but it doesn't power back up.

Then if I unplug and re-plug it'll start back up. Happens every time like this.

I've, reseated the RAM chips, repaired permissions and reset SDC (SMC? whatever you call it when you hold the power button in for five seconds after unplugging).

Software :: IMac Shuts Down At Start Up

Feb 1, 2009

This has been a great computer - bought new in 2004. Recently started to click "off" as it was just powering up. I thought there was a bug - so did a clean and install for OS X - but still does it. The only way to start computer is to hold the Options & Alt key and P and R key at start up until I hear 6 dinging noises of start up (why six is the magic number I don't know. But it is the only combo that works!). Once it is up and running no problems.

Desktops :: Mac Attempts To Start Up And Automatically Shuts Down?

Aug 13, 2009

My Mac attempts to start up and automatically shuts down on it's own. It continues to start and stop for several minutes and finally boots up. Once it's up it works OK. I've had it in to the Mac store and they tell me it's probably the power supply, but after leaving it on all weekend it seemed to work OK so they didn't do anything. After I brought it home it is still acting in the same way. It's only on trying to start up that it cycles through the start - stop action. Once I turn it off it's the same problem on trying to start again. Does this sound like a power supply problem?

Hardware :: Computer Shuts Off Unexpectedly?

Jul 29, 2010

I have a strange problem with my late-2008/early-2009 MBP. In the last couple of days, I have been using it and the screen goes black suddenly. It happened once for just a few seconds and then recovered, but today it completely shut off-- even though the battery was mostly charged (and I had received no warnings)-- so I had to reboot.

A few possibly relevant facts about this computer and this incident:

1) I've had it over a year and never had this problem before.

2) I had the logic board replaced recently because of an issue with sleep mode. This problem never appeared before the logic board was replaced (although this may be a coincidence).

3) Both times the problem happened this week, the computer was running on battery power.

4) Earlier this week (before the incident), I got a little warning to "Check battery" or something similar. The warning went away, though. Maybe this is a faulty battery issue?

5) When the computer completely shut off, it was also running a Time Machine backup. I noticed that TM has been having trouble today-- giving warnings about errors. Not sure if this could be related.

Macbook pro intel core duo. My macbook is turned off, when I press the power button the light goes on and the computer starts making sounds of turning on for about half a second and than shuts off. I tried removing the battery and putting it again, I tried to hold the power button (the light flickers at one point and eventually shuts off as well after 2 seconds), and tried turning it on with the adapter plugged in and unplugged.

Software :: Computer Shuts Down After A Minute Of Inactivity

After just over one minute of inactivity (no moving mouse, typing, etc.), I get a "Logout, Cancel, Restart, Shutdown" screen. If I don't quickly click out of it, the computer totally shuts down. I have an Intel Macbook. I don't believe it's a hardware problem; I've run the hardware test and it comes up clear.

Nov 1, 2009

I've got a four year old Macbook Pro 17", running 10.5.8 OSC, 2.33 ghz, 3gb 667 mhz ddr2 sdram.

The power cord was unplugged, although the battery was fully charged. I plugged in my Canon printer for the first time in over a year. It printed half a document, then the computer shut down. I pushed the power button and got the start up chord, but then it shut down again. Tried this a few times. Then I unplugged the printer and plugged in the power chord. it started, but it's very slow, and I keep getting the pinwheel.

MacBook Pro :: GPU Panic Error - Computer Frequently Shuts Down

Jul 1, 2014

Recently my MBP retina late 2012 started crashing with the screen going all black leaving the keyboard lights on. I had to force it to restart. After a couple of attempts I could finally access the computer for about 10 min before it crashed again, during which i could see the logs. As of know it has been on for 1 hour without any issues but when I run some more hardware-intense programs it crashes. Since i bought the computer from a private person without insurance im not entitled to the 3 year warranty. 

Im getting these errors:

panic(cpu 6 caller 0xffffff7fa6f6ff7c): "GPU Panic: [<None>] 3 0 a0 d9 9 8 0 3 : NVRM[0/1:0:0]: Read Error 0x00000100: CFG 0xffffffff 0xffffffff 0xffffffff, BAR0 0x102c00000 0xffffff8136841000 0x0e7150a2, D0, P3/4

MacBook Pro :: Gray Progress Bar Starts And Then Computer Shuts Off

My MacBook Pro will not start. It chimes and the gray progress bar starts and then the computer shuts off. I am able to start it holding the Command +R keys and access Disk Utility. That is where it says my S.M.A.R.T. drive is "failing". I have a backup from Time Machine from a week ago. I am concerned the computer is going to die. What should I do and is my computer going to die?.
