Check the fan, it may have stopped spinning. If the fan bearing has seized, you may be able to free it by removing the fan label covering the bearing and oiling it. If it does't work, replace it.

If the fans spins freely then remove the fan and clear dust from the heat sink fins.

    The heat sink is under the fan, you have to remove the fan to get at the heat sink to remove the dust.

    A clog heat sink will cause the CPU to over heat, use a small stiff brush plus vacumm to remove dust.

Overheating is the problem, to get rid of it you need to clean the fan and the heat sink of the laptop.

Projector keeps cutting off


just in case it is overheating, blow out any dust with canned air and make sure the fans are working. also, keep anything from blocking the vents. if all that is done and it still shuts down, you have a power supply that needs replacing.

Hello, a friend recently brought me a Presario c700 asking me to fix it. When I inspected it, it has occured to me that the entire thing looks completely fine, inside and out, I've checked this thing with...


What I recommend is you remove everything you could possibly remove from the laptop (HDD, mems, cd rom, wifi cards, etc) just to check if it will turn off even when it's not booting or posting. Try turning it on with just the charger and WITHOUT the battery and see if it stays on. If it doesn't, then most likely the mobo itself is the problem.

Computer turns off by itself


I have a toshiba laptop which was unexpectedly switching off. The laptop was 2 years old. I did lots of searching online to discover this is a VERY COMMON ISSUE. The problem is, dust blocks the heatsink. When I took my computer to pieces, I found a strip of dust half an inch (1cm) thick covering the back of the heatsink which prevented air flow. If your laptop is a couple of years old, this could be the problem. When I removed this dust, the problem disappeared. If you are computer savvy, then try the following - if not, take it down to a computer shop! 1) Remove the 5 screws holding down the heat sink cover and processor cover. These are on the bottom of the laptop, in the centre, at the back. 2) Remove the 3 screws which hold in the heat sink in place. 3) Remove the heatsink 4) Take the dust out 5) Re-assemble a note: be careful not to get dust in the thermal paste on the cpu - unless you have replacement paste. Good Luck!
