Hoover the vents - they're probably full of dust.

Try working on your laptop when you are in a much cooler environment than the usual. the possible reason for your laptop shutting down could be either the processor is getting to hot due to which the cooling unit of the system i not able to cool it down & keep the system temperature under control. I would also like to know the model of the system that you are using at the same time would also like to know the approximate age of the computer that you have been using. I possible which brand is your system & whats the Os its running on... thanks & regards

Whenever I play a video on my laptop it shuts down after a few minutes?


Many laptops don't cool as well as they should - try elevating the rear of the laptop - heavy video usage could be causing the shutdown.

My bathroom heater shuts off after it's on for less than a minute. After a 10 minute wait, a click can be heard and it can be restarted. But only for another 45 seconds


The click sound is the thermostat. It closed and the allows power to the fan heater. The thermostat is faulty and won't allow you to select a higher heat setting.

My fan does not work. I havwe tried updating the software and it is up to date.What are my other options?


There are two possibilities:

A. Your laptop is simply not getting hot enough to turn the fan on. A lot of laptops are becoming very heat friendly with newer processors requiring less power and producing less heat. Running the fan reduces battery charge faster and all laptops avoid using it as much as possible.

B. Your laptop is over heating and shutting down when you use it. This is easy to spot as the laptop will often not boot back up for 20 to 30 minutes after the first shut down. Or it will let you restart it, but the shut down time gets shorter. If this is the case, the fan is broken or jammed.

Solution is to clean the laptop out with a can of compressed air. You can also use this to spray right on the fan to make sure it is free and will spin. If this does not solve the issue, the fan needs to be replaced.

I have a toshiba satellite a215 s7422 and it keeps shutting down on me so i disassembled it and cleaned out the fan but it still keeps shutting down...i recently had the bios reset, i don't know if that...


You should look for the following answers.
(1) Are you operating your laptop in a in a hot and dusty environment (If yes you should know that computers do not like hot and dusty environments and they shut down to avoid a complete burn out of the machine more over the dust particles also can destroy the hardware and block internal fan ventilation ducts in between the CPU and the fan).
(2) When the your laptop PC shuts down place your hand underneath the laptop and try to feel hot spots. If you find areas unusually heated then this is the main cause of the shut down.
(3) If just after the shut down and a good usage the Laptop is cool then underneath than overheating shut down might not be the case.
If you determined that heating is the cause and you cannot change your environment than you should look for other heavy duty laptops that are robustly designed for hot environments.
I do not think that resting the BIOS can cause this.

Wii keeps shutting down


First, I would advise you to not power up the console if it's getting hot. When the console is running, can you see the small fan on the back spinning? If not, you can probably buy an external cooling fan like this one.

This will act as a surrogate cooler to replace the original fan, and should allow the console to stay cool enough to remain on.

Sudden shutdown


What you have not indicated is whether it shuts down or restarts. If the laptop restarts then it is possible that the processor is a celeron and there is a problem of a overheating. If you are sure about all software issues be alright, I suppose you get a new fan. At times after a fan has gone weak, regardless of the contacts it has with the processor, it will still not cool; but it also be good to check the processor temperature if its goes over 60 degrees. good luck.
