Overheating can be one of the problem. Also try removing any usb port connections [printer,scanners,pen drives etc.]. Use the laptop where ventilation is good. Download this program..."EVEREST" to check the temperature and other system information from here http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4181.html Do not try to blow air as the dust might affect cd-reading capability of your laptop's lens.You can refer to these images on how to disassemble
http://www.insidemylaptop.com/disassemble-sony-vaio-tz-laptop-remove-hard-drive/ if you can somehow protect the lens by covering it up with something then you can blow some air inside to clean of the dust specially on the CPU area,you might also want to apply a little thermal paste [you can get it from a computer hardware store] Hope that will do otherwise I would recommend you to show it an authorized service personel.

Tv randomly turns off. Not sure if it is overheating or if something is broken.


Hello,
It sounds as if you are having problems with the AC Power reaching the television. Please verify the cord is firmly seated the tv's ac inlet
Also check the wall outlet (and power strip) by plugging in a lamp into it and see if it flickers when the tv shuts off.
Good Luck!

Why is my generator just shutting down randomly?


It is not the stalling that is the big clue it is the fact that it wont restart after it stalls that is worrisome. The things that you can check are the temperature of the unit. This could be vapor lock due to poor ventilation by the housing around the generator. IT could also be from overheating of the ignition parts for the same reason.

What could cause frequent overheating and random misfire on diagnostic


Frequent overheating is caused by low fluid level for coolant, coolant fan not working, or stuck closed thermostat.

The random misfire could be caused by a bad sensor like an O2 sensor, for example.

Wish you luck on this repair.

I have a 99 ford ranger 4x4 and its overheating and ive replaced the rad,waterpump, thermo, and hoses and its still overheating but not all the time its random


Hello! The most important question is what type of coolant are you using? There is a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) #01-23-6...It relates to the only coolant that can be used in your Ford...Do not use coolant made with Propylene Glycol...It will damage the cooling system...Only use Ethlene Glycol based coolant...Since you have replaced all major components and still have a problem...I would suggest back flushing the engine block...A back flushing kit can be purchased at most auto part stores...The random nature of the overheating may also be associated with electrolysis...Using a digital volt meter set to read less than 1 volt...Put positive probe into recovery tank and negative probe to ground...Start engine...Any reading over .3 volts is indication of a problem...Electrolysis turns coolant to goop and will not circulate...Send results...Guru...Saailer

My GT5662 is locking up completely where I can use it so I have to hard reboot it and sometimes when it boots completely fine it will randomly restart. What is the problem, I need help!


!) how old is the *cough cough i cant believe you bought a gateway cough?2) have you opened the case to see if there is a **** ton of dust on thie inside? maybe your processor is overheating because the heatsink fins the dissapate the processor's heat are caked with dust? the processor overheating will cause these symptoms exactly... with a pc other than gateway. with a agateway you can never truly tell what it is because they **** so bad. but the first place to look is the inside. clean out that dust and the freezeups and random turn offs will stop. if there is no dust, then do a checkdisk on your harddrive, tho i doubt it is the cause of the random turn offs. the only other thing that would cause random turn offs if there is no dust is a motherboard that sucks, i mean is going bad or bad already. clean out that dust!

Power is erratic. Shuts off randomly.


it could be caused by a lot of things. isolate it first. since its randomly shutting down, try first in normal mode. does it heats up before it turns off, if yes its an overheating issue. you may need to replace fan or even motherboard of your pc. have you checked your battery? is it properly seated? or is the problem happening when your system is plugged with the ac adapter? try to check the power cable.

Computer Randomly Cuts off


processor overheating. When it gets too hot it automatically shuts your pc down and boots it back up. Even if the fan is running, it could not be supplying enough cool air anymore.

Random Overheating Problem on Peugeot 206


It sounds like your thermostat has gone bad and sticking close, Replace the Thermostat and Antifreeze. When replacing the thermostat, buy a fail safe thermostat so you will not have a overheating problem when the thermostat fails. Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted, be glad to help.

My TV turns on and off randomly!


Remove the rear cover & turn set on, pull all the connectors off one at a time and push back on. I have had loose connectors cause this problem, and by doing the above has fixed it. Note do the pull off and push back on of the connectors, with the tv unplugged from the AC outlet.
