Hp laptop random shutdown - overheat?

My HP pavilion started shutting itself down -- first the screen goes black and then the computer shuts down. At first it was just sleeping or hibernating but the longer it went on, it would shut down. Also the intervals of functioning got shorter. Also, it says the AMD Turion 64 x2 TL50 drivers are corrupt or missing. How can the computer run with the processor drivers corrupt? Installed speedfan and it is hot. Won't measure the fan speeds.

    I am the original poster. Ended up taking it to geek squad (the second store was very helpful, the first was not). Turns out the hard drive was bad. They couldn't find anything else wrong with it after complete diagnostics. We will see.

Your CPU is likely overheating. Very likely the thermal conducting material between the CPU chip and the heatsink may have shrunk and now impeades the thermal transfer.
You may need to remove the heatsink and put new thermal paste and perhaps copper shim to restore the thermal contact to the heatsink.

Overheats (I think) then screen goes black, yet the computer is still on. Have to then press the power button to shut it down.


use a VGA cable to connect the laptop to an external monitor. put them on, does any picture appears on the monitor? if not, replace your RAM and or processor. if picture did appear, then buy a new screen and replace with the old.

1- Scanning computer to eliminate malwares, spywares and the viruses from your laptop.
2- Repairing and cleaning Windows registry.
These two tips are found to be very helpful to fix the laptop shutdown problem. Almost all the computer users surf internet which could result in viruses attacking your system. Some of these infections are really pesky and cause the machines to shutdown randomly.
The registry errors, however, are the internal errors and can become a cause of system crashes and freezes. The registry keys shall be in good health to keep a system perfect.
When I noticed my laptop keeps shutting down everytime, I tested the Intel Software Partner, RegInOut to fix the random shutdown problem with my laptop.

Pavilion dv7 keeps shutting down


  • This may not fix your issue but its worth a try ...let me know how it goes
  • If the computer appears to shutdown and then attempt to restart without displaying an error message, do the following to disable the automatic restart on error setting.
    1. Click Start , right-click Computer , and then select Properties .
    2. Click Advanced system settings , grant permission to continue if prompted, and then click the Advanced tab.
    3. Click Settings in the Startup and Recovery section of the Advanced tab.
    4. Deselect the Automatically restart checkbox under System failure .
    5. Click OK to close the Startup and Recovery window, click OK again to close the System Properties window, and then close the Control Panel window.
    6. Restart the PC.
    Disabling the automatic restart setting allows time to view the error message that displays on the screen. Contact the manufacturer of the program or device that is causing the error for specific information about the error message.

    My HP's screen goes black


    When your computer reboots, go to the control panel > power options > go to the hibernate tab and turn off hibernation. Then go to the power settings and make sure to change the setting for closing the lid to "do nothing" then change the other settings such as when the computer sleeps if inactive to 30 minutes to an hour. Hibernation is causing the most problems I see with random shutdown etc. One other thing it might be also is overheating of the processor, make sure to get some compressed air and blow out the heatsink vents and grills on the base of the laptop. If these are insuccessful, there maybe the possibility that you have a Malware bug. Go here http://www.filehippo.com/download_malwarebytes_anti_malware/

    download and run this and perfrom a quick scan, when it is finished, show results and delete anything it finds.

    if the other ideas dont work then its a bad motherboard this is common in compaq and hp laptops the chip sets overheats and goes bad HP knows here is issues with the boards but has done nothing to fix this as yet.I belive the is a class action law suit dealing with HP laptops with these issues
    I run a computer shop here and deal with replacing mother board in laptops more then any other repair. you can pick up a board on ebay.I buy lots of laptop board on there just make sure you you get a seller with good feedback.i have yet to see a laptop the cycles on,off,on to be any other problem.
