Most of the time if a laptop is just shutting down without any press of a button or command, it is overheating and shutting off to protect the processor from damage. This thermal protection is normal, what is not normal is the reason for overheating.

make sure that you are not blocking the airflow that cools the laptop. check for dust or other obstructions to airflow. ( look for vents on the bottom, or sides of the laptop ).

Why does my computer automatically shut itself down on the same day each week.

There are a couple possibilities...first, when you say shut down, do you mean that it restarts, or it actually shuts completely off? Windows update will auto-run weekly and restart the system if necessary. Otherwise, I'd suspect something with your antivirus scanner settings.

Shuts down

Are you running xp or Windows 7?
Xp you need to boot into safemode with command prompt
then type:
Once it has done that, then type chkdsk /r /f

If your windows 7 you wiull need the disk that came with your laptop, and you can go into either system restore, or chkdsk from there.

Also if you cant get system restore going but can get to the command prompt then type - rstrui.exe

This will bring the rollback wizard

1 Answer i havwe a new compaq presario laptop 1800 model number a18xl390 and its locked up !!!! how do you unlock this model of laptop ?? can a nyone help thanks the wiz

Locked up screen?? Shut down with button, pull the battery. After five or ten minutes reinstall the battery, Push start button. Screen will say window shut down unexpectedly and ask for start command. Start in safe mode and prompts should come up about your problem and ask you to send a report to microsoft. Do that and follow the prompts. I hope that helps.

My Acer Aspire 5810TG does not shut down on battery. No problem on AC

Until you can locate the underlying cause of the problem (could be mechanical, or your particular battery power configuration settings), you can try this:

Open up a command prompt window (Start Menu > Accessories > System; or, Start Menu > Click "Run" > Type cmd in the box and press enter)

Once the command prompt session has opened, type "shutdown -s" (without the quotation marks) and press enter.

You should see a box pop up warning that shut down will occur in 30 seconds. After the countdown completes, your computer should begin the shutdown routine. This command works for restarting the computer as well, just change "-s" to "-r"

Dell XPS M1530 trouble shutting down

Try this, just to see if the shutdown actually works.

Open a command prompt and enter the following:

shutdown -s -t 05

-s is to shutdown, -t 05 is a 5 second countdown.  Let me know if it actually shuts down.
