Question about HP Pavilion zd8000 Notebook
Can anyone tell me why my laptop shutsdown unexpectedly after roughly 20 to 30 minutes turned on. I don't think its an overheated problem as the fans are going. Please help
The heatsink assy. is cloged up with dust and free flow of air has been restricted. This will cause CPU to overheat ,shutting down issues.Use a can of air and blow it all out..

A bit late, but here goes. It probably *is* overheating, even with the fans going. Easiest and cheapest way to find out is to go to your local supply store and buy one of those cheap platforms that raise your laptop up a bit to allow better circulation underneath. I was having the same problem, bought one, and it hasn't shut off since.

Hi, There might be 3 possibilities why your laptop is shutting down: 1. You have a shortcut key in your keyboard that is pressed (accidentally or reacting to other keystrokes) that is configured to shut down your laptop; 2. You have a virus that is programmed to shutdown your laptop after a pre-determined amount of time; and/or 3. Your battery and/or AC adapter is no longer capable of supplying the power needs of your laptop. A few things you can do: a. Verify/Check if you have enabled any key stroke shortcuts for a quick shutdown; b. Check your Control Panel, Power Options, Advance tab, for any autoshutdown features, disable; c. use a known good/updated anti virus program and scan your drives. It might also be a good idea to run a program similar to Ad-Aware to scan for malicious ads; d. Charge your battery overnight and see if the problem persists. Or run the laptop with the AC adapter always plugged in to the mains and to your HP Pavilion ZD8000. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.

You need to remove your motherboard from its base and clear out the dust bunnies properly.
If you do not want to do this, sell it to me.

Because it over heats, clean it out
