When ever I start the laptop, the laptop starts for a second or so and then goes off. If I start the laptop after 3-4 days, it starts properly and then goes off after 10 mins or so.

computers and laptops are designed not to damaged the hardware from it..thats why its automatically off you laptop encounters error from your harware..check the temperature, and check the fans if they working properly..if not try to clean the fans..

It is normal for a Gateway ML6732 that the fan starts when turn on the laptop and then stops the fan couple seconds after that? My laptop gets freeze all the time seconds after.


That is normal for when the laptop starts up. That is also a good indication that the fan is working ok. If the fan loud and noisy all the time then there is a build up of dust in the machine and it needs cleaning out,

Acer laptop fan stops working after 5 seconds

Check the Bios and see if the Fan is set to a certain temp or on all the time. there's a chance if it's set at a certain temp that the temp tracker (thermometer) may be borked and not reading properly. Remember, turning the fan on all the time will use up energy so your laptop will not last as long on batery life.

Fan on laptop intermittent Avent 7110

That can be normal. Normally cpu fans start up only when cpu reach a determined temperature. After it cools down it stops until temperature reaches starting point again.
Generally, when the fan is not working properly, the computer turns itself off after a while because of overheating.
If you have this problem, laptop turning itself off because of overheating (check it is not hibernating etc.), then you usually solve it by replacing the laptop cooling fan.
Generally, 'fan on laptop intermittent' is not a symptom of malfunction.
