Did you get the battery checked? OR maybe it's an issue with the PowerJack connector on the motherboard...have it checked ASAP.... Also take out the battery and plug straight from the wall jack using the Adapter to ckeck if power is coming.

    Then have the charging port checked. If it indicates a problem, you'll have to get th elaptop replaced as the charging port is hardwired onto the mobo.

My labtop wont load my desktop, but the screen comes on.

this might sound really silly but some laptops after a while get a glitch where they cant power down fully and go into sleep or hibernate adn i have seen it happen to people who do not allow the battery to completely drain occasionally, had a family members did this recently. Just to rule it out turn it on and shen you hear fans and see lights even with no desktop, press and hold on the power button 3-5 sec until it shuts itself down, then do a normal start when you can see no lights or hear any sounds. Good luck.

My laptop shuts down suddenly

Is it overheating? Is the fan and vents clean and allowing sufficent air flow? Was it left unattended and shut down? If so change Power settings to High Performance, change Sleep to Never, Change Hibernate to never. I don't know your OS to give detailed info.

Power button stuck down on gateway laptop

I doubt this would work twice, but a 30-min drive to the repair shop unstuck my power button. It was even in a padded case. Cheapest repair ever! (Hate me if you must but worth a try right?)

The button has been flaky for months. One day the laptop suddenly turned on by itself. When I turned it off it immediately started again from sleep/hibernate/shutdown. Pressing it 20x, spraying with compressed air and swearing didn't fix it. Instead of pulling the battery, I set Power Plan to "Power Saver" with everything set to minimum after 5 min., power button to do nothing, and NO timed shutdowns.

Turns off suddenly

Laptop turns off suddenly? 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.

My laptop keeps making beeping sounds when i type.HELP!!!

Do a system restore to a point previous to the power failure shut down. It sounds like the abrupt shut down glitched the system.

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.

sounds like you have an intermittent problem with your AC adaptor or dc input jack. Does the light on the AC adaptor light up when you plug it in? If it does then your dc input jack may be faulty. If the light on the ac adaptor does not light then replace the ac adaptor. Good Luck!
