    Thanks for your response

    This may be due to overheating of fan

    You should check where fan is sitting - is it near a heat source? Is it sitting on something that might block the ventilation?

    Can you feel ANY hot air coming out of the exhaust port?

    Does the fan initially kick-in when you power on, then subside?

Hi.. i have hp pavilion laptop and the problem is my laptop shutting down automatically at startup

Hi there,
The fan is probably stuffed with dirt, making it difficult to rotate. And if the processor doesn't get enough cooler (fan) it will heat up and burn. Thats why it keeps shutting down. The shutting down is actually protecting your pc from serious damage. So try cleaning the fan with a vacuum cleaner. Be careful not to use too much pressure. Goodluck

When i want to shut down my laptop it wont shut down. it keeps saying shutting down. I have to turn of my battary and put it back. this is not the best solution iv checked all my program files and all are...

Start-Run - MSCONFIG
unselect all the startup items and reboot. Then check if it shuts down properly (which it should now) - then go through each startup item with a reboot inbetween to see which is the troublesome one.
Bear in mind you may disable your antivirus program doing this, so make sure this one is reselected after your troubleshooting.

My computer keeps showing rapair recommened or start up normally. what is the problem

If you close your computer without using the windows bar button, it will show the repair message on startup. You should always use the "turn off computer" in the start menu to shut down your pc.
