Hi
We had the same problem so I bought a cooling tray from ebay for just over a £10 and it has worked a treat. The tray has 3 fans built in that blows cool air into the laptop, it is powered by plugging it into a usb port. Hope i have been of use
Regards
Paul

Hi I have an acer laptop travel mate , before it was operating well but now it switches of by its self even if the battery is fully charged and when its on power what could be the problem?


switching off by itself could be a sign that it is overheating or over heated and urned itself out. Are the fans clear? were the vents blocked by a thigh, blanket or loose papers underneath?

I just bought an HP mini 210 - 2080 and its keeps on turning off by itself.Sometimes it goes on but then it switches off again and again!


Try logging in safe-mode and see if it switches its self off.
To log on in safe mode, power the laptop on and keep pressing F8, choose safe mode using the arrow buttons, continue to log on. when you successfully log on, leave the laptop for some time to see if it will switch itself off, if it does switch itself off, then definitely, that will be a hardware related problem.
if it does not, then that's a virus causing it, email on xrojer2005@yahoo.com to solve the software related problem.

Amilo7600 laptop processor overheating and screen going blank


Hi,

If your laptop switches itself off when overheating, you need to replace the motherboard, heatsink. If you are still covered by warranty, you can have it serviced.

Computers may not be smarter than people, but if they’re designed properly, they will shut themselves down before overheating to the extent that they do themselves damage.

If the smart person keeps turning the notebook back on and figures out a way to foil the protection, the laptop is probably doomed. Once a laptop shuts down for thermal event protection, it may refuse to power back up for a fixed period of time, five or ten minutes, or it may begin to boot and shut down immediately as soon as it boots to the point that it can figure out that its too hot.

The over-temperature protection is generally a BIOS rather than an operating system function, so one sign of an overheated laptop is one that shuts itself down while you’re using it and then refuses to boot as far as the operating system unless you leave it alone for an hour or so to cool down.

Unless you’ve been working in a very unfriendly environment, high temperatures, direct sunlight, etc, you should take even a single overheating shutdown as a warning to back up your data at the first opportunity and to give the cooling system a serious cleaning.
Good luck

Hot spot, fan always runs? Many laptop brands and models have characteristic hot spots, like a particular corner of the keyboard or over the battery compartment. Before proceeding with the more invasive cleaning techniques that involve opening up the laptop (and potentially breaking something), spend some time searching the web for user feedback on your make and model. The bothersome hot spot on your laptop that none of your friends or colleagues have ever hear of may be a characteristic issue with your particular model and not worth a major panic.Similarly, if the fan always runs, or almost always runs, it may be a characteristic of the particular model that it simply gets hot in normal operation, or the fan control software might be poorly conceived. As long as the laptop isn’t overheating, I’d probably learn to live with a fan that seems to run too much if it’s typical for the model, and only get worried when I don’t hear it anymore.

I can't turn on my Compaq f500


So you don't hear any beeps and it just shuts off?

Most likely a faulty motherboard.
You could test this with a minipci post card

These are sold in ebay for quite cheap.

It would direct you to the problem.


But Id say its a motherboard / cpu problem if you don't hear any beeps.

Overheat?


It sounds like an overheating problem. When it is booted, does it run ok other than just being slow? Check your cooling fan and make sure it is running and not stopped up. That is a number one symtom of overheating is freezing and rebooting by itself. There is a free program called "Motherboard Monitor 5" that will monitor the temp for you and set off an alarm when it is getting to hot. Check that problem first. Hopes this helps!
