If you're convinced of it and nothing helps, go back to factory settings using the restore CD.
- Turning off: might be an energy saving setting. Check them in Control panel.
- Turning on: might be a "boot upon LAN" option or so in the BIOS. Check it and turn it off.
- No automatic updates: this seems something you can live with by checking manually each second tuesday of the month. Although I can't explain it.
as i explained i had virus and trojans on my computer and now its turning on and off by itself. when it does this it isnt connected to the internet.
my computer: its about 2 years old and its a laptop
brand: fujitsu siemens
Screen: 15.4" 1200x800
operating system: windows xp
processor: 1.9 Ghz AMD Turion
Ram: 512mb ATI Radeon xpress
Harddrive: 100 Gb
the external mouse i have is a logitech G5 with a cord.
i have symantec antivirus
my computer turns on and off.
it only turns it self off when im not looking and i havent logged on to my windows account, but the turning on thing happens a few minutes after i switched it off.
to solve this ive been taking the battery out and removing the power supply, but this isnt a solution for me.
i cant get the "automatic updates" turned on, and the few times ive managed it, a couple of hours passed and it turned off again.
dont know what to do about this either.
if anyone know or have any ideas on what to do id would really like to hear from you.
