take front face plate off and disconnect the wire for power and eject sensors. you will have to use the controller for ejecting a disk and powering on but quick fix and has no problems. i had to do it to mine and its still disconnected for 2 years now and now problems and no shutdowns by itself.
Instead of going to the start menu, choosing shutdown,
then waiting for the computer to shut all the programs down, you can create
a shortcut on the desktop to do it quickly. You can create a shutdown,
restart, or a logoff icon on your desktop which will work a lot quicker than
using the usual buttons in the start menu. Here's how to create a shutdown shortcut on your desktop
1. Go to your blank desktop 2. Right click on a blank space and a menu will appear 3. Choose New from the menu 4. Then choose Shortcut 5. Where it says type the location of the item type in shutdown.exe -s 6. Then press next 7. Now enter a name for your icon. Mine is called SHUTDOWN NOW 8. Press next 9. The Shutdown shortcut will be on your desktop
Different combination you can type in when creating a shortcut to shutdown, restart, or logoff.
Shutsdown your computer in 30 seconds and will close all programs and ask you to save all work.
shutdown.exe -r Restarts your computer in 30 seconds.
shutdown.exe -l This one will logoff your computer back to the welcome screen where you will need to login again.
shutdown.exe -s -t 1 Shutsdown your computer in one second. the -t 1 tells it how long to wait. (one second in this case) You can put -t 10 or even -t 1120.
shutdown.exe -s -t 15 -c "Goodbye you idiot" This is my favorite code. It will shutdown in 15 seconds and have a message in the box saying "Goodbye you idiot" The -c "bla bla bla" stands for a comment.
* to stop the computer from shutting down type shutdown /a into the run box located in the start menu.. * -f will force everything to close immediately without asking to save anything.
the only way you can upgrade the graphics on a laptop is to purchase a graphics accelerator card that plugs in to the usb slot, its not an upgrade as such but it will allow you to play high res games on the laptop, there would have to be a memory upgrade to go with that also
Nvidia are doing some good laptop accelerators at the moment but they are expensive!!!
it sounds like the video card cannot support or handle the pressure put on it by the game you are trying to play, if it is an OEM game have a look for the minium system requirements that the game will run on, you can also find this information on line, you will probably find out that the graphics card doesn't support the game, do this check with all games you try to play another thing is to upgrade your memory because some laptops don't have a devoted graphics card thus they are relient on the system memory
the problem is not your hard drive, if you are using vista then there are compatbility issues with certain programmes, if yoou are using XP all you need to do is download the latest codecs, this also goes for vista, try not to use XP programmes with vista because you will run into problems
