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.

Open Control Panel, Power, power settings, change power settings to high performance, Disable Hibernation, sleep. When your laptop is not in use shut it down and unplug. It will last longer and a boot everyday will reset the laptop.

LAPTOP WILL NOT COME OUT OF 'SLEEP' MODE


Turn it on, then wait, u will hear the computer turning itself on and off, but nothing is showing on the screen. so make it turn on and off, 3 time.( such as hearing the computer turned off, so that one,THEN IT TURNS ITSELF ON AGAIN, next time it turns off, that count as 2, and so on). on the third shut off then u press and hold the off button, to force it to shut down, then wait. about 5-10min., or less then 5. after then u turn the computer on.it should be on by now. if not try it again. if it happens again try one more time, if it happens again. then there something really wrong with your computer.

Screen goes black on my hp pavilion dv4000 notebook


Try connecting an external monitor to the laptop, power up the monitor first then boot up the laptop. The video data will switch to the monitor automatically, check if the monitor dislays a normal image and see if the image stays on the monitor.
Also press and hold the Fn key and press the F4 key, these keys toggle the video output between the LCD screen and the video port.
Test to see if this functions correctly.
Get back to me with the results of the tests.
