Hi,donnoll...
maybe a strange idea,but check the power supply..actually unplug from motherboard and look inside the plastic cover for any discolouration,also check that the pins are secure...

When it does shut off, can you start it up right away or does it take some time before it starts up? if yes, it is the CPU that heats up prompting the system to shut off.

However, if no, it could be a loose connection somewhere. Please advise....

Recently our laptop (4yo) shut down unexpectedly after being used for 45min to 1 hour! I was wondering what the issue is? Is there anything which can be done by us? We are out of warranty.


things that happen to older laptops are that over time there tiny processor power supplies build up with lint from the air that is passed thru them sometimes even making the tiny cooling fans in there stop , then its only a matter of a few minutes and it overheats and shuts off , after several hours cool own it will restart , but wont stay on long , then the cycle repeats . if its caught in time and no power supply parts are ruined sometimes a Pc repair shop can dismantle one and clean it

PC shuts down. When you turn on the pc it shuts


try to change the source, that should solve the problem. But before try reset CMOS. (if you don`t know how to do it by jumper simple remove the battery from the mainboard for 5 minutes and then plug it back on..and after that turn on your computer and press F1 for default settings)

My pc is shutting down what should i do to prevent it?


You haven't mentioned if it turns off abruptly or shuts down telling you that the PC is shutting down.

- When your PC turns off abruptly, its mostly the CPU which heats up. The reason may vary from the CPU fan stopped working to CPU gone bad.

- If its a proper shutdown, most probably there is a virus on the PC.

KIndly feel free to ask me if you need further clarification

No sync means no video signal to the monitor. The rest sounds like a corrupted OS. This could be from a number of reasons, including a virus. If you have NORTON or MacAfee, Your open to a lot of attacks. Get AVG free, and use Mozilla instead of IE.
The reason the fans come on full speed is the MB senses a high temp on the CPU, until the bios fan control takes over after POST. This is normal on most systems.
