Automatically Shutting Down then unable to turn back on

November 7, 2008~

My lifebook shuts off automatically. When I attempt to turn it back on, I can hear the fan running and the lights illuminate across the top indicating that there is power but the screen remains black. I have to push the on/off switched at least thirty times before the screen finally displays. In most instances, it just continues to power off. I have used te liquid dust to clean the fan and I also have a laptop fan I use all the time to attempt from overheating. Not knowing much about computers, someone suggested that I may require additional memory. This worked for approximately two months and here I/we are again with the same issue.


In the instances when the lifebook powers on I cannot connect to the internet (which has not been a problem until the automatic shut off).

Also, I have an external wireless device (D-Link). Now I am receiving an error message stating that I need to place the usb in an 2.0 outlet. I am using a 2.0 outlet but the device is not recognized.

If there is no solution(s), I will have to restore the lifebook to original. Unfortunately, I cannot afford a new laptop and obviously I do not want to loose all info/data but if there is no solution(s), I will have no choice but to restore the lifebook to it's original state. I am SSOOOO frustrated !!!

PLEASE advise ASAP !!!

Thanks,
Rhoni B. (Chochynadl@aol.com)

Sounds like overheating, if the machine just cuts off its either power fault or overheat and the machine will hit a certain temp about 90C for a period and cut out to prevent severe component damage .
you can try cleaning again, the thing is if its been running at high degrees C it may need fresh arctic silver on the CPU which thankfully is a pretty robust one in that machine.

hope this helps, let me know if you need further help

My Ipad Mini keeps shutting off automatically, then turns back on. When the home screen is shown it just keeps glitching and shutting off. Whats wrong with it?


I would first try doing a hard reset. Hold the home and power button down simultaneously until the iPad completely turns off and the Apple logo appears. You can ignore the slide to turn off button when it appears.
If that doesn't solve the issue I would make an appointment with your local Apple Store and have the device checked out by an Apple Genius.
Hope that helps!

Sony Vaio netbook will not connect to internet - says limited connection


That's usually your router, not the computer. Sounds like your computer is connected to your router, but IT is not connected to the internet.
I would suggest shutting down the computer, shutting down router, then the modem, plug the modem back in, waiit for lights to finish blinking (should be within a few minutes) then your router, once that's finished blinking, then turn on your computer.

Toshiba A135-S4527 will not automatically shut down


If you truly believe the problem happened right after installing the new mouse, then you should start by uninstalling the software for it. Go to Control Panel -> Software -> Uninstall. If this fails, you can use the System Restore utility to rollback the Windows registry to a time before you first installed the new mouse software. Have you tried to unplug the mouse and not use it, atleast on the attempted shutdown process?

automatically shutting down is an indication of thermal issue or over heating. how ever when you say automatically shutsdown does the computer turns off? try checking your heatsink fan and the heat sink as well as the air vents. make sure all the air vents are free from obstruction and the heatsink is clear of all dust which can prevent the air from cooling your processor. if still it continues change heatsink fan and heatsink. make sure to apply the thermal grease between heatsink and processor
