Laptop shut down

Hi just wondering i have a gateway laptop md2614u was giving to me by my coworker and it didn't really start up and i figured that one out. i went and take out the cover and take out the fan and heatsink out and underneath was dusty as heck and i clean that up with air spray can and put it back together and worked fine until it went shutting down. so i even bought new battery for the laptop too and i switch my new battery back to my old battery and thought it would ok and sometimes it shuts down fast other times alittle bit longer. what do you think it could be wrong with the laptop thank you.

Sounds like it is getting too hot. Does it feel real hot when it shuts down? Is the fan and power supply working well and unobstructed so they get good air circulation?

It does the same on AC and Battery? Open the Control Panel, select Power Options, select High performance, set Plugged in, both to Never, Open Advanced Power settings, set Sleep and Hibernate to Never. Use this procedure: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms700612(v=vs.85).aspx ALSO, right click a open spot on the desktop and select Personalize, set Screen Saver time.

Push start button on gateway laptop md2614u


Hello Howard,
It has been my experience that the switches that are used on a laptop motherboard are a switch called a membrane switch. This type of switch is made of a elastic cover over a spring assembly. The problem with these switches is that the spring or elastic cover do weaken over use and time. The only cure is to replace the switch. On a motherboard it is less expensive to replace the machine unless you have the technical ability to replace the switch it's self. And that may not be all. Some switch assemblies may have more then 5 switches in the assembly. They can be very difficult to repair. If a electronics repair shop in your area reputes it's self as a component level repair then it might be worth a try. Be advised that there probably will be a check out fee that is paid up front. We hope that this helps you.

I would remove the heatsink and fan, clean the processor surfaces with methylated spirit or isopropanol, use new heatsink compound and that should fix your issue. Yes yes, heatsink pipe should get hot!

Actually this is a hard drive fault most likely, or a faulty had drive. If you don't have a recovery disk you are going to have to start the machine and try to do a recovery to boot repair. You can usually access this with F10 or F12, not really sure on a gateway.

I suggest you wait at least 1 hr before trying to restart it. Leave the laptop off during this time. This will give enough time to the CPU and other components to cool down.
