I can not reboot immediatly but insteaed I have to wait a little while adn then re start it. Could this be a virus or a broken fan? I just got this a year and a half ago!

This is a heat problem. Get a can of compressed air and blow it into all the holes in the side of the computer and bottom (if there are holes there). Most likely there is dust build-up inside.
This should help.

be sure to rate my solution, please.

My lap top keeps shutting off


Overheating When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are clogged with dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed air to do this.

I won't shut down my laptop


Why is it exactly that you wont shut off your lap top...? I've actually hear that leaving you lap top on constantly is ok for the unit. I myself constantly leave my lap top on all the time and have had no issues with it. Hope this helps Shannon

My note book become heated and shut down I have been checked the fan is working


One of the things people purchase with lap tops is a fan pad that assists with heating distribution. You can purchase these just about any electronics store. Your fan also may be working but not working to its fullest capacity they are designed to shut down when they get hot no worries.
I would have this checked out and purchase one of those lap external USB fans for cooling assistance. They do work my friends all have them it is common these days and also blow them out once in awhile keep dust down. I hope this assisted you with your question thanks for using FixYa for all your questions. John

All my saved pictures have been deleted and the screen continually goes blank


Greetings and thanks for the question, there are various reasons why this happens. Without having your computer here to see what is going on is anybody s guess on how to repair it. If I may offer some suggestions. Since I also do not know what operating system you are using I will assume it is Win 7.
I would personally go to control panel and check my power options to make sure I do not have the settings set you close display or sleep mode or anything set to soon to close your machine down. Often times people have these set to go off there are defaulted usually to save battery usage and your lap top from getting to hot and shutting it down. The thermal switch may be activating sooner than normal. What some folks do is purchase one of those underneath fan coolers to keep their lap tops from getting to hot and constantly shutting down.
This can be the case have this checked out at least set the lap top for more time before closing down or turning the monitor off. Let us hope it is not more serious than appears. Like a lamp in the monitor going out. If it is new the lap top I would not worry about that issue because it is intermittent. Which leads me to believe it is a thermal or a shut down issue. Get the cooler fan for your lap top I recommend anyone that reads this post to also do this as well. Clean your lap top blow them out it is critical to do this to keep dust away and keep it clean.
Now there is recovery software which is free to download Click Here to check this out to retrieve lost files. Also important to get those precious memories separate off your computer and on to separate CD or DVD or storage USB stick so that when this type of thing happens you have not lost your precious memories. I hope this helps you. John

Laptop shuts down


HI- I have one and it shuts down to. For us it was a problem with overheating and dust in the laptop. I beleive there are heat sensors inside the laptop that go, so that could be it. For the most part, when it shuts down, we have found it to be dust as after we clean it, it doesn't happen as much. For the dust- the first time blew air into the fan outlets (both of them) and a ton of dust came out. Sounds simple, but it worked. A tell tale sign may be if your laptop sounds louder than it normally does. We use the compressed air can every so often and even just put the vacum nozle over the fans (you'll hear them whirl and see dust coem out). I also have the lap top sitting on a "vent filter" like people use for thier heting/ac vents (WEB Electrostatic Vent Filters).They come in 4x12 sheets and are cheap. The fans **** up a ton of dust and this helps keep some of it out. Good luck...Steve

Could be overheating - can you hear the fan working? Try installing temperature monitoring software such as Speedfan.

Toshiba Satelite M10 cooling system not working


If you DO NOT hear the fan running, have it looked at by a professional. Your fan may have died. If you can hear the fan running, blow out the fan exhaust port in the opposite direction of normal air flow. Especially on lap tops, the heat sink cooling fins become completely clogged with dust. When this happens the processor overheats causing it to run slow and eventually shuts itself down to keep from going super nova. You should blow it out at least once or twice a year. Also, if you use your laptop on the couch or in bed, place it on a hard surface like a cutting board or something similar that will allow air to flow underneath the computer. This will also help prevent dust from the cushions or blankets and such from clogging the cooling fins on the heat sink faster than usual. Remember blow it out in the opposite direction of normal air flow. You want to blow the dust out the same passage it came in through.
