Random shut down

My PC ran great for 2 years now, then started shutting down after several minutes of use. I noticed that the CPU temp is high in the boot messages (37-42 deg Celcius) and was wondering if this was the source of my problem. Both cooling fans are running and room temp is at 23 deg C. Will overheating cause a shut down? Is there a way to diagnose and fix this? I don't think its actually overheating because the heat sink is cool to the touch. Is there a way to reprogram the CPU's thermo sensor? As a curiosity, is there a virus that can change the thermo readings in the CPU and might that be the cause?

Yes.... over heating can and will cause a system shutdown..

Download and install speedfan ( http://www.almico.com/sfdownload.php ) It will most likely tell you how hot things are really getting......

Depending on what cpu you have, you may have a thermal paste problem, you may need to remove the heatsink and re-apply heatsink thermal paste to the bottom of the heatsink and reseat ontop of the cpu. This will void any warranty if you PC still has any left.

Computer randomely shutting down


As a 25 years experienced technician, some times I have clients who come to me saying " I have a computer that keeps shutting down randomely " they had it checked by some tech. and he can't find a clue what's going on, even after changing the power supply...

The reason is that the tech did not noticed the swollen capacitors on the main board usually around the CPU or the RAM...

Conclusion! if your computer is randomely shutting down, befor changing any hardware, open the box and check for the physical state of the capacitors (round aluminium cans covered in a plastic shrink) the top are suppose to be FLAT not about to burst.

They can be changed by a proffessional tech. with good tools and lots of patiance (not to damage the feed trough's on the board)

I have a JD 2305. It runs/ran fine up until this morning after the 1st snow fall and cold temps, (-5C) arrived. The tractor turns over and idles great. I let it warm up at 1/3 trottle for 15 minutes b


Without being there to trouble shoot, this is just a guess. Does it have safety switches to kill the engine if no weight is on the seat?
If so, maybe it is defective.

PC won't start up


It may be worth trying to re apply the thermal paste to the processor, make sure you remove power from the machine before you open it up. The CPU may have failed, but they don't fail very often, so try the paste first, it will only cost a few GBP for a couple of applications.

My acer all in one z5600 runs for awhile and then shuts down very annoying!!!


Start by cleaning the fan or fans, heatsink, and vents, you may have to open the computer. When you open, you may as well replace the Thermal Paste on the CPU and Graphics Chips. Overheating will cause shut downs, heat sensors set to detect a set temp. will shut down to protect vital components from heat related damage. ALSO, Open Control Panel, Power Options, set to High Performance, open Change plan settings, under Plugged In, set both to Never, open Advanced Power settings, go through thr Advanced settings set Sleep and Hibernate to Never, Adjust to your preference. It's a good idea to Always shut down your computer when not in use, it will last longer and a reboot everyday will reset the machine. Make sure ALL your Windows and Acer Updates are current.

MSI computer randomly shutting down


When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are clogged with dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed air to do this.

Laptop randomly shuts down


This problem might be occur due to old BIOS version installed on the laptop.
If your system shut down unexpectedly within 10-20 minutes while playing games or scanning the system which takes high cpu usages then the problem is of BIOS and try to install the new BIOS version.
for that visit the site of your laptop company.

Emac 800mhz will shut off on it's own randomly. I'll press start button and it start up. This has been going on a few days now.


hi my name is wesley. ok it might be a broken or loose cable in your pc check and make sure they are all in properly then go into your bios witch when you boot up your pc it will say press f1 or delete to enter setup do that then look for pc health or cpu temprature if the temp is high the pc will auto shut down due to danger. you can fry your cpu so you might have to get a new system fan they not expensive and easy to install if the temprature is not the prob then replace a few cables starting with the cable that goes into your hard drive called an ide cable. your system temprature should be about 30 40 degrees usually higher than that it will auto shut off.

HAVING FAN/POWER ISSUES


Many PC's have BIOS settings that enable smart fan usage, when CPU reaches certain temp, the fans kick on high, when it reaches a higher temp, auto shutdown. I do not reccommend disabling these until you find out what is overheating. I had a PC that randomly shut off, something was shorting out on my mobo.
