Tip & How-To about HP Pavilion dv2000t 14.1" Notebook Laptop PC (Intel Core 2 Duo T5500 1.66 GHz, 1GB RAM, 100GB HDD, D... PC Notebook

Laptop is turning off by itself.

Hi.

If your computer turns off after idling for a while, then check power saving settings, accessible from control panel.

If laptop turns off while you are using it, try first reinstalling the system to exclude system problems, or test the laptop starting OS from CD or staying in Bios settings mode, so to exclude installed system.

If laptop is still shutting down, then problem may be overheating.

Overheating usually happens when the fan is not coming , therefore when the computer overheats.Or the fan is not cooling enough and computer is overheating.

Monitor computer temperature using a software, check if Fan is coming up when temperature gets critical.

If fan comes up but does not cool enough, then replace the fan, it is not efficient anymore because of a bad bearing or dust. ~Also ensure that fan is well mounted, if fan has poor contact with CPU surface , cooling will be poor.

If fan does not come up, and critical temp is not detected, then the sensor on motherboard is bad, this is very uncommon. When this happens the problem is usually related to system or power settiings , rather than overheating.

If fan does not come up and temp is critical, then fan is faulty, replace it.

There are also more than one fan on many laptops, check that one of the fans (CPU fan, video fan) is not completely ded, and therefore cause for the problem.

By using the software below you can also find out if the problem is really overheating. If temperature results within normal range, then usually it is not overheating.In that case test systtem and check power saving settings.

Here is the software to control your fan and temp. sensor state:

Hello ,
Do you have / use a screen saver or have you set some power saving option in Control Panel's Power Options. Like turning off the hard disk after xxx amount of idle time?

Is it set to power off the hard drive after xx amount of idle time ?

Right-Click the My Computer icon on desktop. Select Properties.
Next, select Advanced. Look for a block that says Startup and recovery. Press the settings button.
In System failure section, turn off (un-check) Automatically restart. Apply change.

my dell inspiron freezes after idle


This could be a couple things but we'll start with power management. Open power options in control panel and uncheck hibernate, disable sleep, and set power options to balanced.

Also check and see if its set to disable your hard disk and nic to save power.
Reboot and let the computer go idle again.

Hope this helps:)
