Your GPU gets hot, because when u start the console it gets hot, nd when u start a game it becomes hotter, when the system detects that ur GPU is hot it shuts down Automatically, the cause of this problem is common, you need to replace the GPU's thermal compound nd try to find the The Arctic Silver one, it's the best..

My Acer Laptop battery shuts down completely at 40 - 30


Go to Power Options --> On the plan you are using select change plan settings --> Change advanced power settings --> Scroll down till you reach battery and click the + next to it to expand the settings --> Where it says Critical battery level and Critical battery action (on battery) make sure that the level is at 5% and the action is to hibernate. If it's set to do nothing, it will keep running until it's out of battery and completely shut off. Plugging the AC adapter would give it more power. If that isn't the problem, check your battery's connection and consider replacing the battery.

My computer is on but no picture. It says windows was not shut down properly


Hello Pattiaknight,Make a desktop shortcut to shutdown and include a switch that forces all open apps to shut down without warning.

Just right click the desktop, New, Shortcut, type:

Shutdown -f

Shutdown -f closes any open programs without warning.

Now instead of shutting down the usual way, just use that shortcut to shutdown. If the error stops it means some program wasnt shutting down properly on occasion.

Please let me know if you any further questions or concerns.Also please rate it if you like the answer,it helps alot.
Thanks.

Accidentally put my system on standby mode..using XP OS and DIY desktop.now i cannot get out of standby mode..check KB and mouse ok..any shortcut key or other ways i can start up and boot?even my two DVD...


I think you have to shut your computer down completely and reboot. This means that you will lose any work you didn't save before going in standby mode.
If your PC has a 'reset' button (usually located near the power button), press it. Your machine should reboot. If it doesn't or if you don't have one, you can try pressing and holding the power button for about 5 seconds. This should shut down your computer completely. Press the power button once more and it should boot normally, though you might get a warning saying Windows didn't shut down properly. If you get the choice, just choose to boot Windows normally. If pressing and holding the power button doesn't work, try looking for a power switch on the back of your machine. It should be near the power cable. Flip the switch, wait a few seconds and flip it again, then boot your computer as usual. You might get the same message which I mentioned above.

Why does my computer keep shutting down?


Is Windows crashing or is it just shutting down without warning? If it is without warning, then I would suspect a failing power supply. May want to look at getting a replacement power supply.

Auto restart without warning


go to control panel>administrative tools>event viewer and look in the left hand listings at programmes etc and see if there are any red crosses or exclamation marks to give a clue as to the problem, but if you know it's not overheated and you have'nt recently installed any other software and recently scanned for virus and spyware it is probably a driver problem.
