SOURCE: Random hanging and unit shutdown typically after few hours of operation

Firstly please disregard first answer and the second is on the right line but I,m sure you will find the problem to be a software issue not a ram or hdd problem as these will present themselves at the start, not 2hrs or more later.( will contradict myself later)

firstly run a complete virus scan and any other programs you have associated with this.

If this comes back clean then as second answer suggests run a Chkdisk or scandisk.

If your confident enough to strip down the laptop and expose the cpu & fan then it may well help if you clean this and apply some compound to the heatsink as this will help cool the cpu as this may well be the problem, despite what I said at the start..hope this will help

SOURCE: lenovo laptop shutdown suddenly after working for a while

Hi James, replace the fan or If it's still under warranty have it serviced. Suggest you stop turning it on until the fan is replaced. It could be the fan cooling the CPU. You don't want it to fry.
The shut down process is normal when over heating is detected by the system.

SOURCE: Gateway P6860fx Shutdown

What you need to is Down Grade to windows xp 64 bit. This is what the system was really designed for trust me i bought mine back in april. and after 2 months of dealing with best buys idiots who know nothing other then commission on what they sell and some pakistani guy telling you that you voided something and it worked when they sold it to you. i Delved heavily into the mod scene to see what i could to do with my 1,300$ paper weight. After much searching and forum scouring i got all the drivers i needed to get back to xp 64 bit. right now my system only consumes 342 mbs of ram. i have the graphics card overclocked to 1084mhz using 177.66 forceware drivers from nvidia. i have absolutely no issues playing any games be it halo 2. crysis. age of conan. and my personal favorites the half lifes. i eat through games like its butter and online play no lag whatsoever on good servers. only issues for me is i am a 3d artist and have a couple of speed issues with renders inside of maya 2008 64 bit and zbrush. small stuff like plane clipping and overlay of desktop showing through when fully maximized. believe it or not thats it. i dont give a **** what people tell you about the sagers and the alienwares. My p6860fx scores around 12356 on 3dmarks06 but that program is just a reference for the uber dorks who hook up like car radiators to theyre computers trying to get a number that means nothing. its all about your jaggies thats it. the reason your laptop runs hot is because Vista is retarded and doesnt know how to manage anything even its self. if you look at your processes most of them are vista pinging microsoft trying to fix it self and it takes priority from you the user since microsoft is trying to get more feedback for sp2. ok hope this helps someone

SOURCE: Vizio shuts itself off

There may be some components failing in the power supply or one of the circuit boards that are causing too high a current pull.

I realize that this answer is very vague. Without doing proper diagnostics, it is impossible to guess at something like this.

Out of warranty repairs on these sets can be very expensive. I would suggest that if the set is going to be expensive to service, it would be best to replace it with a known brand name that offers an extended warranty with local service. You will pay more, but you will have dependability and better quality.

Hi darthz,

I see that you are having issues with your Wireless and Blue tooth not turning ON.

Basing on your query you mention that you tried FN+F5 and the Physical switch and it will not turn ON the Wireless card and your Bluetooth device on the Laptop.

In this case there is no other way but to call Lenovo and have the machine sent back to Depot repairs on this case since the issue will be the Hardware and may need replacing in the Depot warehouse which is in Grapevine TX, it will take 5-7 Busienes days for the repeiars, and I am assuming that your system is still in warranty since you have a Z360 Laptop. call Lenovo
877-456-6686 you will be asked for a Serial number your Full Name Contact # and E-mail for registration on the issue.

I hope that this will be helpful since there is no way on fixing your concern over the Internet. Have a nice day.

If the Computer restarts randomly, then the issue might be due to any damaged Operating System Files.
But, if the Computer shuts down randomly, it is due to the Processor.
All the Processors will be designed in such a way that, if there is any overheating issues, the Computer will shut down randomly.
The overheating might occur due to the malfunction of the Cooling Fan in the Computer.
As this is a overheating issue, it would be better to get the Unit examined at the Service Center.
Replacing the Cooling Fan in the Computer should resolve the issue.

This sounds like a overheating problem (a CPU thermal shutdown).
This is caused by a faulty fan or the heat-sink and fan is clogged with dust. Check the fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the faulty fan. Check the fan/heatsink assembly and remove/vacuum the dust from these components.
