Hi, my HP Pavilion Dv7 1130us laptop has started shutting down on its own lately. It happens at completely random times, and I am unsure what the problem is. I know there is a error occurring, though, because there is a error popup that shows when I turn my laptop back on. Here is what the error is:
I am hoping that someone will be able to read that and make sense of what is causing the problem. This never happened for a while, and I havnt really done anything drastic with my computer lately. Any recommendations? Thanks!

Re: HP Pavilion Laptop shutsdown randomly, need help.
This looks like a bad memory stick. That looks like a memory address where the error occurs. Keep track of the messages you get and see if they are similar. If it's a memory address you may run the computer for quite some time or a short time till you use enough system resourses to fill up the ram to that bad address then it will die. The confusing part is it shows the program or device that was loaded into ram that failed and sometimes you think it's that program or device rather than the ram that caused it. In this example it shows possibly 4 addresses. 40000080 8A57DAD0 89FF6F30 8A234F44 Three of those are pretty close together. If you see more that start with 8A or 8B I'm maybe right.

1- Scanning computer to eliminate malwares, spywares and the viruses from your laptop.
2- Repairing and cleaning Windows registry.
These two tips are found to be very helpful to fix the laptop shutdown problem. Almost all the computer users surf internet which could result in viruses attacking your system. Some of these infections are really pesky and cause the machines to shutdown randomly.
The registry errors, however, are the internal errors and can become a cause of system crashes and freezes. The registry keys shall be in good health to keep a system perfect.
When I noticed my laptop keeps shutting down everytime, I tested the Intel Software Partner, RegInOut to fix the random shutdown problem with my laptop.
Are you having any problems with the laptop overheating or shutting down unexpectedly?
Generally the fan should only run as much as it needs to in order to maintain an optimal temperature. the fan will be turning off as the laptop will be cool enough. if however, the laptop is very hot to touch you may have a faulty sensor telling the fan the laptop is cool when it isnt. this generally leads to the laptop crashing or shutting down though if thats not happening i recommend contacting HP for guidance.
it is most lekely functioning properly if you arent having any other adverse effects
Laptops are designed (by software) to shut themselves off as a protection measure. The most common problem is high temperatures. Do you hear your fan racing while you are using it? Do you sit your laptop on soft surfaces (like the bed or carpet floor) while using it? Do you smoke around your laptop while using it? These are common things that cause high temperatures on your laptop and will cause it to shut down. May not be your case but just a though. I would take it somewhere or open it up yourself(if you are pass your warranty time ONLY) and clean out the dusk with some air.
seems like it mioght have the blue screen of death. go to google, and search for a program called "Bart PE" download this program, run it and let it burn to a CD. Now, boot the laptop from this CD, and let it load. Now click on go, and find the command prompt. type in "CHKDSK C:/r" and let it run. once it finishes,l reboot and take the CD out. Now your laptop should work perfectly. Best of luck dude ;)
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.
