30-50C is normal idle temp, 50-100C when running stuff but anything over 70C is getting a little too hot if you ask me but i\'m not an expert on that one. The only thing you can do is make sure you have cleared out as much dust as you can from the inlet and outlet vents on the PC, make sure they are free to suck air and blow air, clean the fan blades, if still having probs thing about getting a better fan. The common mistake people have with laptops is using them on a bed or cushion which is a big NO no as this will block vents and end up burning out the PC, will overheat. Always use on flat surface. PC\'s have much more airflow so temp will be generally lower than a laptop as laptops are very compact not ideal for ventilation.

SOURCE: gateway md2614u shut down

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!

Laptop shut down


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?

My MD2614u I believe overheated. It had been in use all day while sitting on a wooden desk. The computer was shut down by putting it in sleep mode. A short time later we tried to reboot and all of the...


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.

I have a ML6230 Gateway and it keeps shutting down after a few minutes. Doesn't matter if it is running on the battery or AC. Changed power settings so it is not hibernating and the fan is running but...


Computer shutting off after a few seconds to a few minutes

This sounds like an auto shut-off signal given by the processor because of a possible over-heating issue. This usually happens when the laptop has been run for an extended time without having the dust, dirt and debris cleaned from its cooling vents and grills. After time, the thermal paste on the processor bakes under the extreme heat and starts to flake off and lose its efficiency at cooling the processor.
Get a few cans of compressed air that you would buy at an office supply store and using short bursts, blow out the dust and dirt from all the ventilation grills and vents first, make sure the laptop is powered down and battery removed. Then, open all the compartments and clean them out as well including the cd/dvd tray. There is a small black hole on the dvd bezel, just stick an open paperclip in it and it will pop the tray open. Blow a good blast in there to clean the dvd player.
There is the possibility that the thermal paste will have to be replaced, that means you need to gain access to the heatsink and remove from the processor, clean all the old thermal paste from it and apply a small thin layer of new paste to the top of the processor and replace the heatsink, securing it evenly with the attached screws.

Gateway 7405 GX Fully shuts down at random intervals


It sounds like a thermal shut down when the processor over heats,one thing it might be is that the heat sink is not seated properly on the processor.When removing the heat sink make sure you have thermal paste to place between the processor and heat sink.That should give you a good starting point.
