HP 7410 shuts down

I have an HP 7410 All in One, and it continully shuts down by itself, goes into what looks like a sleep mode first, then just turns off. When I press the "on" button, it won't start up. I switch the plug into a new outlet in my wall-mounted surge protector, and then it will boot up. When it happens again, I switch it back to the original outlet, and it boots up once again. I have 3 other devices plugged into this 6 outlet surge protector, and everything else works fine. Any ideas as to why this would happen and what a fix would be?

    I would say about 12-15 hours. I've never actually timed it....just know it does take awhile. I'll use it one day, and it's usually down the next.

    Overheating



    Basically every computer and laptop has a processor inside

    That processor gets extremely hot when on however there

    Is a heat sink with fan which cools it at all times.

    Over the years dust builds up around the fan and heat sink

    And blocks the air vents preventing cool air from coming

    In and out. This causes the processor to overheat and

    The reason why it’s shutting is because your laptop

    Is doing so automatically to protect it.



    To sort this out, you should switch off your pc or laptop

    Remove the cover and access the heatsink and fan

    It will need to be cleaned with a brush or an air-can

    Properly and once this is done air should go in and

    Out easily without overheating.



    It is also recommended to add thermal paste

    To the top of the processor however

    You’ll need to remove the heat sink completely

    For that. Making sure it is applies 100% back

    On the processor.



    Overheating is serious and must be taken care of

    Asap. Here’s a link to a tool you can download and

    Install to monitor your computers temperature

    Download SpeedFan 4.37. free.

How to open hp laptop in sleep mode


This is a common problem on HP computers but also has many causes. If your laptop is not coming back on after being put into sleep mode, it could be a software issue among a few other things. If your computer has a hibernation mode I would suggest using it to get around the sleep mode issue. This mode will save everything the way it is and shut down completely. When you restart the computer it will open up just as you left it. Just like sleep mode except with a restart. This does not solve the sleep mode problem but easily provides a power saving alternative to it.

Hp pavilion ze1115 stuck on hibernating..


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.

Hp g72-227wm has a broken lcd screen i have a hp compaq le1711 vga flat screen hooked to my lap top it was doing fine i log off out of windows and shut down the pc when i turn it back on the flat screen...


Check monitor is set to correct input (VGA, DVI, HDMI) if it goes to sleep instantly.


Otherwise screen resolution is set too high. Boot into safe mode by pressing F8 during boot. Login and lower screen resolution.

How do I disable sleep mode on my IBM R52 laptop?


This will probably be in the BIOS, when your pc first starts, press the delete button, this will take you to the bios, have a look around till you find it, to go out of a page press escape, when you have turned sleep mode off press F10 to save and exit.
Or when you turn your PC off , select shut down, not sleep, thats easier :)

Acer iconia a500 tablet shuts itself off


This might sound a little stupid, but 1 is it plugged in when you put it sleep mode, and when u open the screen do you physically have to turn it back on. Sometimes when you put a computer in "sleep mode" and its not plugged in you lose power slowly

My hp laptop is automatically turn off


More info would help, does it just shut off, are you doing anything when it does this.

my guess with what info you gave,

1. the computer goes into "Sleep Mode" when not used after time.

2. Computer goes into "Power Save Mode"

3 Computer goes into "Hibernation"

all of which may seem like your computer shuts off
