It does not overheat from needing charged it simply shuts down automatically when the battery is low. Are you still having problems? Please explain.

Fist, It doesnt overheat when the battery gets low, it just powers off or goes into standby.

Why do you think it over heated?

Try this first. Remove the battery and unplug it for about 2 minutes, re-insert them amnd try to power it on.

What does it do? Any beeps or flashing lights? What color are they?

Check you power settings. It is possible that it is set to shut down at 50% battery power.

If it is overheating, that too will cause a shutdown. What is happening at the time of shut down? Are the vents on the laptop being blocked in any way?

The most common problem you get with a laptop is overheating, this can cause for it to shut down while operating to prevent more damage.

You will know if your laptop is overheating if it happens one ore more of the following:
-The keyboard and the bottom of your laptop are very hot when the laptop is working.
-The CPU fans are working all the time at maximum rotation speed and operate much louder than before.
-The laptop suddenly shuts down by itself without warning. When it just started, the laptop was shutting down after 1-2 hours and how it shuts down after 5-10 minutes of operation.
-The laptop works fine when it runs idle, but shuts down as soon as you start using any memory demanding applications (DVD player, image editing software, video editing software, etc.).
Follow this steps to avoid overheating:
-Don't use your laptop in full sunlight for extended periods
-Don't leave the laptop in a closed car on a sunny day
-Don't place the laptop on or near extreme heat sources, such as radiators, hot air vents
-Turn off your laptop before putting it in your carry bag
-Turn off your laptop when not in use for a long period
-Work on an even surface as much as possible, not on your lap!
-Clean the air vents in your laptop regularly by using a can of compressed air
-Get more space under your computer by propping it up on something when it's on a desk
-Consider purchasing a laptop cooling pad
-Consider purchasing an external fan

To clean your laptop's cooling system:
-Shut down the laptop ie do not leave it suspended, sleeping or hibernating.
-Unplug all cables from the unit and remove the battery pack
-Get a can of compressed air and blow it into all vents around your computer - this should clear out any dust and hair.
-Do Not use a vacuum cleaner.

If it is not overheating, then it is a hardware failure. Could be the RAM memory, or the motherboard. You can only corner the problem by testing with different RAM modules or motherboard.

My Dell 1721 laptop appears to have overheated/will not turn on.


Hi there!
For that problem of yours, you can only try a few things since its shutting down by itself,

First, Try to use just the charger to turn on the computer, if it does the same thing then unplug the charger and then this time just use the battery,

If the same thing happens then double check the charger if there is a light on it or of you have another
charger use it.

But after all of this things and the same thing happen,
You may want to check if you still have a warranty
under DELL because you'll need to replace the Motherboard of the computer.

Hope this helps!

HI, My Hp DV9000 will turn on but shuts off the


There could be a few possibilities here, first the ac adapter needs to be checked for voltage at the tip, it has to be between 18.5 and 19.5 volts. The battery is most likely dead or has dead cells which will not carry a charge. The third problem could be the motherboard. Try leaving the battery out and just run the laptop off the AC adapter....if the laptop runs fine , then the battery is bad and sending signals to the motherboard causing a shutdown. If the laptop is still shutting down or refusing to start, then there maybe a problem with the voltage resulator in the charger brick. If the battery and charging brick are in good condition, then the laptop may be getting a thermal shut down signal from the processor because of an overheating condition. The processor heats up immediately, if the laptop has been run overheating for some time, the thermal grease on the processor can be cooked off reducing the efficiency of heat bleed off, thus causing a shut down to protect the laptop from a terminal meltdown. Try using compressed air and blow out all the ventilation grills and compartment openings to clear out debris, hair and dust.

When there is a sudden drop off like that it may be two reasons....first the charger died and is not putting out the correct voltage to run and charge the laptop, the battery may be wesk and would not last long enough to signal an alarm....or the ventilation grills, ports and van openings are clogged with dirt, dust and debris and you need to get a few cans of compressed air to blow all these openings out to clear up the heatsink fans. If this laptop has been run and has overheated, just realize that there may be irrepairable damage to the processor or mainboard.

Typical reasons could be overheating and or the charger is on it's last legs. Do you have the same problems when you're using the computer with battery alone. Does the laptop feel hot?

The reason the charger is getting hot is because it's probably a 65W charger and not a 90W (that's just a guess though)

Let me know if I'm right or not.
