The laptop is full of dust and fluff and needs cleaning before real damage is done because of overheating, buy a can of compressed air and blast it through the vents and the fan area, if you feel adventuous open the laptop up and clean it manually with a soft, clean paintbrush

When my laptop is shutting down , it always installs new updates even when I don't want updates . It's always 3 or 4 updates so it takes a few minutes for my laptop to shutdown .


If you do not want these updates, you can turn off automatic updates in windows. Open your start menu, type windows update and pres enter. Click change settings from the left menu. Change the settings to what suites you, and the click ok.

My laptop turn off, I think it got hot, I can't turn it on now. turn off Sunday


Hi
try this,
unplug dc plug from laptop. remove battery.
wait a few minutes. press and hold the power button for 10-15 seconds.
plug the dc power plug back into the laptop, but do not put battery back in yet. Then try to power on. if it powers on, let it run a few minutes, but best to keep checking to see if it is getting warm or hot anywhere. if it is getting hot shut it down immediately. If it isnt getting hot then shut it down and put the battery back in.

if it doesnt power up, then i would have to suspect heat damage to the motherboard.

Sony vaio system becomes hot and shutdowns


More than likely the fan above the processor is not working. Or the vents are clogged on the computer case due to dust/dirt. Ventilation.Check the fans.

Laptop turning off


Often, if a system turns off every time at roughly the same time, it's a hardware problem. System gets too hot, shuts down, restart it and it'll run again for a while, but not quite as long, and continue like that. Can you feel/hear the fan moving air? Possibly clogged, see what you can do to get it cleaned up a bit. Does it make any difference what surface it's on? May be covering a vent on the bottom or back.

Always shutdown my IBM ThinkPad A21m 2628 PC Notebook


It must be a processor overheating problem, check the vents are not restricted and if the fan is always on or never comes on because of a faulty temp setting then theres a overheating problem and the processor will shut down before any damage.
