These are processor intensive tasks that generate alot of heat from the cpu. The motherboard is designed to turn off immediately when a certain heat threshhold is reached. Sometimes the cut off point can be set in the BIOS, sometimes not.

Check your vent holes for clogging. Listen specifically to be sure the fans are coming on. Also feel the top and bottom of the laptop right after it cuts off. If it is heat related, you might have to partially disassemble to clear the lint and dust from the heatsink itself.

Will not configura updates from microsoft goes to 30%then shuts down computer will not start properly after


Try running a Virus scan with AVG. When completed you can remove the program using uninstall.

Next, check to see what service pack you are running.

Go to Microsoft and download that service pack and install it.

You may also check while at Microsoft and run fixit for me.

Hope this helps


P.S . disable any virus software before running AVG

I have display problem, when i try to open laptop, screen doesnot open properly, after 2/3 times shut down it work, what is the problem


If you have a recovery partition, take a DVD disc make a copy of the operational system asp, so if your system crashes you can recover everything to factory setting. Run a full scan for virus's, go to www.download.com Type: ccleaner and run program to clean out junk files, next download smart defrag and run the program to organize hard drive files. Now if you are still having trouble run a full recovery of your operational system to factory setting.

My sisters A205-S5804 laptop keeps shutting down but only when it's processing files..If it's idle it sits there for hours


it may be overheating, when it processes files the proc gets hot i suggest a cooling pad of some type see if that helps, when it shuts down, is it hot? are you getting any messages or does it just shut down. try this: hit windows key +R and when the box pops up type eventvwr and check the system logs and see if it tells you why it's shutting down. if it's heat related it should say. let me know if you need any help

Crashed files


First of, your files did not crash. Your PC did. Your files may only get corrupted at best.

First, download a registry cleaner. A good one is Avast registry cleaner. Also download a virus removal tool or an antivirus. Avast also can be a good one. I recommend getting Avira Free version.

Boot your PC into Safe Mode (press F8 while PC is booting). Then install Avira in Safe Mode. Scan your PC. Run Avast registry cleaner. Reboot.

Converting an avi file to a dvd format


You can use a program like CloneDVD to convert from an avi to a DVD format. Then after you do that you can use the same program and tell it to burn that dvd format to a regular dvd. Keep in mind that to convert files can take a few hours so keep this in mind if your doing something big like a movie. Make sure you have a dvd-rw in your computer to otherwise you can't burn to a regular DVD.

Laptop will not boot after vrus warning.


try booting into safe mode? on a pc hit F8 repeatedly while you boot until you get a boot screen with the safe mode option. Some laptops have differant keys, eg F2, <Del>, F10, but ussualy they state this when it boots up.

when you get into safe mode, go to your run prompt and type "msconfig" hit enter. got to startup, disable all.Go to services, disable all. reboot. if this works, try running an pdated antivirus scan. I recommend using Avast! which is like AVG. It can do a start up scan. also try running something like 'trojan remover' which is free to download.

Good luck! :)

Want to completely re-install system to basic specs using CDs that came with my notebook. Already did a back-up of my files I need. Don't know what to do next.


If you insert the restore disc and reboot the machine and when the laptop is booting up hold down f12 and you should get the boot menu select the CD/DVD drive and it should be straight forward from there.
