Does it feel hot?

Sounds like it's overheating. It's very common with this model.

Let me know so that I can diagnose it correctly.

Thanks!

    OK well since it's a good idea to clean out your system anyway you should try picking up some compressed air from Best Buy, Wal-mart, etc.

    Take the laptop outside, remove the battery, and then spray the vents out. Make sure you keep the can level so that it's just air, not the cold stuff.

    Give it a minute or two to rest, then place the battery back in and see if that improves anything.

    Let me know.

My computer has frozen during shutdown it has never happend before.Please help !!!


this sometimes happens with operating systems.nothing to worry just press and hold down the power button of the pc for 5-6 seconds and you will see that the system will shut down completely.then just turn it on the normal way you do and it should work fine.if it is vista then it may give you a prompt to start windows normally.just hit enter on that option.

My laptop computer shut down when run for 5 minutes or so. Do you think is the cooling fan?


It could very well be.

Does it feel hot?

Does it last longer when you boot it up for the first time?

Air condioner climbs to 86 degrees


First check your coil behind the filter. If this coil iss clogged the unit will over heat and cause the compressor to shut down. It sounds as if either the evaporator coil (inside) or the condensor coil (outside) may be clogged. If the unit is icing up on the inner coil then that coil is clogged or low on freon. I would think it would be cloggged instead of freon problem. To clean this coil you can go to the hardware store and buy a can of coil cleaner and use it following the directions The outer coil you would have to remove a/c from sleeve and take the unit outside. Using a water house flush the condensor coil from the outside in to remove debris.. These coils should look like a brand new car radiator when you finished cleaning. Reinsert the a/c back into wall sleeve after letting the water evaporate from the unit as to not spill water through out the area. Good Luck

My new 21' flatscreen monitor keeps shutting off :(


Usually when an LCD display shuts off on it's own this can be a power supply issue. I would say if you checked all the connections you may want to contact the manufacturer. If it is only a few months old then you should be able to get it replaced under warranty.

Also, you may have an auto shut off feature enabled on the display itself. You may want to go through the display's menu to very that this is not the case.

You can start by uninstalling the program you installed before this started happening. You can also do system restore which you'll find in start>accessories>system tools.
If nogo, try disconnecting devices on the back of the computer except the keyboard, mouse, monitor and power. Turn the computer on without them. If the issue disappeared, reconnect what you unplugged one at a time until you find the culprit.

Shutting off


i have the same problem...laptop randomly shuts down, but its even done it within a minute of turning it on so i don't think its a heat issue. Sometimes it'll run for over an hour with no problem and never shut down, but other times it randomly shuts down sometimes within a minute, sometimes maybe 10 mins, sometimes 30 mins or more ...its maddening! i'd love to find a solution if anyone's found one. Thanks.
