How do you stop a laptop from shutting down?


When the overheating issue is fixed, the laptop will reset. Did you clean the radiator? Is the fan running?

2007 Panasonic 50in Plasma shuts off after being on 30 min sleep timer off, is the problem the cooling fans out/ over heating


Yes, cooling fan could be a problem. Just see whether it goes off during before shut off. If yes, the TV might need service. To know whether the fan goes off first or the TV, stick one side of any thin vibrating membrane such as a silver paper (like the one you see in cigarette packets) on the fan outlet, without blocking it, so that you can see whether it stops before the TV shuts down. Alternatively you can hand an inflated balloon which keeps flying off from the area of the fan and shall stop when the fan stops. I suggest this, in order to save your time looking at the rear all the time until the TV stops. Even then, one is likely to overlook whether the fan stops or TV stops first.

Laptop shuts down during gaming


It most likly a heat issues I got one just like yours and it runs way to hot running 720P videos when I run 1080p forget it...it lags and skip or hit dam near 200F. Use SpeedFan to monitor the tempature. Get a laptop cooler with a big fan in the middle that where the intake is for the laptop and it exit on the left side. Make sure you blow out dust from the exhaust and intake area. I am currently looking for ways to keep the fan going full blast all the time to keep it cooler longer fans are cheaper to replace not CPUs and mother boards

Computer keeps shuting down


Shuts down when? Right after you boot it up? Or does it run a while then shut down?
If it shuts down after it has run for a while then the computer is probably running hot. Either the CPU Fan is not working or the Thermal Paste has dried up or is too thin to keep the CPU Cool. To prove it is running hot, let the computer sit for a while then boot it up. Once it boots up use it until it shuts down and immediately try to boot it up. If it does not boot up that means it's running hot. But if you let it cool off then try booting up you will be successful.

It keeps shutting itself off ?


When does it shut itself off? Is this happening time you press the power button and during the boot cycle it shuts off without completing the boot to windows? If it shuts down after you've worked on it for a while it could be that it is running hot. If you let it sit a while to cool off then press the power button, if it completes the boot cycle and allows you to work it is definitely running hot. Normally when they run hot if you immediately try to reboot, it will fail. If you let it cool off it will boot successfully. Computers run hot because of a fan not working, dust clogging the fan vents or the Thermal Paste around the CPU and Heat Sink has become hard or too thin to keep the unit cool. If it's not running hot you might have a power supply or motherboard issue. Try removing the power cord and press and hold the Power Button for 30 seconds to release any Static Buildup. Then plug the power cord back in and try to reboot.

AC Condenser motor will stop at 1pm but inside unit is still running but no AC. If I turn the AC unit breaker unit off and then an hour later turn it back on. The unit runs fine all day until 1pm. Had a...


Hi, the tech should have been able to figure the stat out with out a manual to see why the condenser is shutting off at 1:00 P.M. This is unusual for this to happen, unless it was winter and this is a heat-pump going into defrost, but just the fan would shut down. Does this unit have a box on it that was installed by your electric company that shuts the unit off during high peak conditions in the summer? This would cause it to shut down at the same time everyday. If not, it would have to be something in the thermostat that is set for it to shut off at that time. It still does not make since, as it would shut both the indoor and outdoor unit off, not just the condenser. Are you saying that just the condenser fan motor is shutting off, but the compressor continues to run until it shuts off on high head pressure when the fan stops, or does the complete outdoor unit shut down fan, compressor and all at that time??. It sounds to me like this outdoor unit has a time delay relay that has a fault in it may be shutting it off at this time daily? Please let me know if its just the condenser fan motor that shuts off, or if the complete unit is shutting off all together, this will help .
Sincerely,

My XPS 200 keeps shutting down and power light blinks


During when does your computer shutdown? Please check the diagnostic lights at the back as well which ones have light on it during the time it would shutdown.

Since you said that the light is blinking yellow it just says that your power supply is running outside its normal operating range. So most likely you would need a change of power supply. Maybe a higher wattage would be better.

yes the fan will shut down during the defrost cycle. But the fan only shuts down during this cycle....other than defrost the outdoor fan motor should be running during a call for heat.

it sounds like it is overheating. but if only stops for a minute or so dont know if that would be enough time to cool off.When you start it up can you hear the fan running? does it keep running when it shuts down? if it's not running then thats the problem If the fan is running and shuts down when it shuts down then try shaking the door when you start it up the next time or you can try it the first time just to eliminate it being a faulty interlock switch. let me know about what you find about these two ideas.

Won't complete booting


Sounds like at the very least, the hard drive is. This is common when a file required by the OS is corrupted, and the OS tries to not damage data so it restarts or shuts down.
