    I have the same problem. I believe it is caused by a fan and overheating but I'm not sure. It probably requires professional service, parts replacement, and it may be more expensive to fix than the cost of the laptop.

    i have the same problem, if you have any thing at all on the screen try hitting f10 , that should bring up a different way to your desk top

    I posted the problem with my laptop a few weeks ago and was asked for a little more info.My laptop shuts down while i am working on it . and steps that i have taken to try and solve my problem are posted .



    i used a can of compressed air to clean what i can so there is no cloging of filters ( if any). so the fan seems to be working fine (i guess)

    as for going to sleep . no it does not go to sleep it just stops and the only way to use it is to turn the power off and turn it on again.

    the problem usually comes when i am browsing streaming videos or youtube. and recently it is happening when i use an anti virus software like sypbot or AVG. it is starting to look to me that when the processor is working more that one program it shuts off. ( it has an AMD Athlone XP-M CPU).



    Friends have said that i should be happy that it lastd this long ( being an e-machine and all)

Test your monitor. To do this, you will need another monitor.

Plug in any desktop monitor to the output port on the back of the laptop. Restart the laptop.

If you are able to use the laptop using this other monitor, then your problem lies in a part called a video power inverter.

It is possible that it could be the lcd backlight, but that is doubtful.

The power inverter is available at many online markets for a relatively small cost. Installation is generally easy enough that any person with reasonable mechanical skills and a set of small screwdrivers can do it.

I once walked an 11 year old boy through the process from 1200 miles away over the telephone.

good luck

SOURCE: eMachine e627 screen blank

I am assuming you have plugged the screen into a known working power source. You have pressed the 'on' button to turn the screen on and you have hooked up the screen to the back of the computer. What I need to know is if when you power up the computer if you see any text at all from the post AND if you see any lights on the front of the screen itself. (most all screens have lights on the front of them to tell you they are turned on, and most of the time the light is green). If the screen is on but is getting an orange or amber light that means something. Also if you see text or something on the screen initially but not in windows then it could be a resolution or driver issue.

My Toshiba P35-S611 shuts down without warning a short time (2 min-45 min) after it boots up. The battery isn't hot but the heat dissipation fins in the back are very hot.


Indications of laptop overheating problem:
  1. The keyboard and the bottom of your laptop are very hot when the laptop is working.
  2. The CPU fans are working all the time at maximum rotation speed and operate much louder than before.
  3. The laptop suddenly shuts down by itself without warning. When it just started, the laptop was shutting down after 1-2 hours and how it shuts down after 5-10 minutes of operation.
  4. The laptop works fine when it runs idle, but shuts down as soon as you start using any memory demanding applications (DVD player, image editing software, video editing software, etc.).

Solution:
If the CPU heatsink is not clogged with dust and lint completely, you can use canned air and just blow it inside the laptop through the openings on the bottom and on the sides. It’s nice as a precaution measure, but it might not work if your laptop already has a problem and the heatsink is completely clogged.
  1. Open the laptop case, so you can access the CPU fan and the heatsink. In some cases you can access the heatsink through the latch on the bottom of the laptop. Sometimes (for example Toshiba Satellite A70/A75) you have to open the laptop case all the way down.
  2. Carefully disconnect the fan cables on the system board and remove the fan. If the fan makes unusual sound when it spins (grinding sound), I would recommend to replace the fan.
  3. Clean the fan and the heatsink with compressed air.
  4. I would also recommend removing old thermal grease from the CPU and applying new grease for better heat conductivity.

My laptop shut down after powering out with no warning and will not restart.... Toshiba L550 screen stays black but when I hit the enter key it beeps........any suggestions


“My Toshiba laptop suddenly shuts down by itself without any warning. Sometimes it works fine for hours, sometimes it shuts down in 10-15 minutes.” This complaint we hear from our customers over and over again. About 15-20% of all Toshiba laptops we get for repair, suffer from an overheating problem. Yep, OVERHEATING!
This is one of the most common problems with Toshiba laptops we deal with.

My laptop keeps shutting down at random times. I


Computers may not be smarter than people, but if they’re designed properly, they will shut themselves down before overheating to the extent that they do themselves damage.

If the smart person keeps turning the notebook back on and figures out a way to foil the protection, the laptop is probably doomed. Once a laptop shuts down for thermal event protection, it may refuse to power back up for a fixed period of time, five or ten minutes, or it may begin to boot and shut down immediately as soon as it boots to the point that it can figure out that its too hot.

The over-temperature protection is generally a BIOS rather than an operating system function, so one sign of an overheated laptop is one that shuts itself down while you’re using it and then refuses to boot as far as the operating system unless you leave it alone for an hour or so to cool down.

Unless you’ve been working in a very unfriendly environment, high temperatures, direct sunlight, etc, you should take even a single overheating shutdown as a warning to back up your data at the first opportunity and to give the cooling system a serious cleaning.
Good luck

Laptop Shuts down to black screen without warning.


it may be over heating !!
turn it on and run it till you hear the fan turn on, then check if there is much air coming out of it.
if not use a vacuum to **** air throw it as you blow hard into the slot that the air should come out of

Power failure


your laptop may become overheated and that is why it shuts down, make sure the laptop is on a hard service so that the fan can get air. hot weather can cause problems as well.
