Turns off when it gets hot

Will do single scans. If we start to use alot it shuts down. After it cools off will work again. Have used same way for 2 years and never had that problem. Is there a service center somewhere that can fix it.

System shuts off after 5 min will start again if turned off and on but only plays for 5 again

It sounds to me that something is getting very hot and causing the system to shut itself down. Then when it cools off, it returns to normal. Investigation inside straight after it has shut down might reveal what is getting hot, by simply feeling for a very hot part. But be careful don't burn yourself!

Have a ford f350 with 460 starts runs fine till it warms up then fuel pump shuts down leave to cool down and fuel pump will work again and start again

What year? Newer models use a fuel pump module located in the rear. Some are on the rear frame rail and some are near the spare tire. These modules can corrode and cause issues

I have a eu 6500is generator inverter that will run perfectly for any amount of time, then with no warning just stop generating and idle. No overload alarm. No oil alarm. Nothing will just idle. If you...

this sounds like a capasitor/resistor that is getting hot under load once it is switched off and cools down it works until it gets hot again similar to that of a cars ignition coil which will get hot and cut the vehicle out but once it cools it will start again.

Gemsound pa 1005 exa keeps shutting off

I Think that something like a transistor is getting hot and then shutting down. Exploring inside might solve the problem of what's getting really hot. You could even get some Servisol Freeze Spray, and wait for it to go off then spray it on the suspected part. That will cool it down and it should start up again. If it does come on, that part will have to be replaced.

My hp620 went off during use

Did it turn back on? If not it might be running hot and needs to cool off before it will turn back on.

If it is running hot it shuts off to keep from damaging the motherboard.

If it is running hot it will boot up to windows and let you do things as long as it is cool, but when it gets hot it will shut off and not boot up again until it cools off. That's a sign that it is running hot.

Three things that will cause it to run hot.
1) Dust. Dust in the vents, inside the computer, clogging the fans and dust around the cpu and heatsink.
2) A fan that has stopped working.
3) The Thermal Paste around the CPU and Heatsink has dried up or is too thin to keep the unit cool.

To fix either of the three would require taking the laptop apart. However you could buy a can of compressed air and blow out the vents, but this just pushes the dust inside the computer, but it might work.

If it is not running hot then you have a virus or infection that is shutting it down. Download and install MalwareBytes and run a Quick Scan.
Go to and in the search box type:"Download cnet Malwarebytes" (without the quotes). Download andinstall malwarebytes from the sites download.cnet/malwarebytes. When the site opens up click on the Green Download button on the left. Do not click the Red Download button, that's junk. When it finishes installing the Gui Interface will open up with an offer to Accept a Trial Version or Decline. CLICK DECLINE you want the totally free version. Run a QUICK SCAN. As it scans, if it finds infections the number will be in red. When it finishes scanning, click SHOW RESULTS. A notepad text document will open up showing you the results. You can close the text document and go back to the Gui Interface where you will click REMOVE SELECTED RESULTS. The objects will already be selected for you. When it finishes removing the objects click ok and it will sometimes reboot your machine.

My computer starts then shuts off i havent used it for about 2 years ?

It could be overheating. Do you hear fans running when it's on? If not, the CPU Fan may not be working. Also the Thermal Paste around the CPU and Heat Sink may have dried up or is not thick enough to keep the laptop cool, so it shuts down. You will have to take the laptop apart to fix either of the two things mentioned so far.

You might have a virus that is causing you to shut down. Try booting the system in Safe Mode and see if it stays on. Turn the laptop off, then turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE option. Select Safe Mode and let it boot up. Most times the virus can't operate in Safe Mode because it needs the Internet Connection. If it stays on you will need to run your virus scan.

My computer just went belly up! It is a reconditioned IBM ThinkCenter, a little over 2 years old. It was running normally and then all hell broke lose, cooling fan went berserk sounding like a hair dryer...

Since your PC is two years old its recommended to check your computers hardware check your cooling fan
specially CPU cooling fan if that fan is broken your pc wont work and be careful turning on your PC again and again will burn the processor
