The overheating problem will cause the CPU to shutdown and it won't boot up again until it has cooled dowm.
The problem could be a faulty fan that has stopped spinning and or the fan and heatsink assembly is clogged with dust.
To fix the problem, remove and vacuum the dust from the fan and heatsink assembly, check the fan and if it does not spin freely, replace the fan.

My electric dryer will start but will not keep running

If it makes a growling sound when starting or the drum is very hard to turn by hand then you prob have the motor overload shutting down the motor preventing overheating of said motor. If your dryer is on of them fancy smancy dryers with on board sensor to detect moisture and save enegy by shutting down quicker then you could find the sensor strips inside the dryer (usually below and back of filter) clean it good with windex and retry. The wax from dryer sheets gum and sometimes metal objects short out the sensor strips and so the controls thinks the clothes is dry. Goes into shut down countdown.

My 2005 chevy malibu classic keeps stalling/shutting down

you might have a short circuit in your car, or a loose cable somewhere, I don't think the car is overheating, I think that the temperature sensor (commonly screwed to the engine by a water return hose) is not working well, probably the bimetalic material is all wear out, you might consider change it.

My laptop shut down after powering out with no warning and will not restart.... Toshiba L550 screen stays black but when I hit the enter key it beeps........any suggestions

“My Toshiba laptop suddenly shuts down by itself without any warning. Sometimes it works fine for hours, sometimes it shuts down in 10-15 minutes.” This complaint we hear from our customers over and over again. About 15-20% of all Toshiba laptops we get for repair, suffer from an overheating problem. Yep, OVERHEATING!
This is one of the most common problems with Toshiba laptops we deal with.
Indications of laptop overheating problem:
  1. The keyboard and the bottom of your laptop are very hot when the laptop is working.
  2. The CPU fans are working all the time at maximum rotation speed and operate much louder than before.
  3. The laptop suddenly shuts down by itself without warning. When it just started, the laptop was shutting down after 1-2 hours and how it shuts down after 5-10 minutes of operation.
  4. The laptop works fine when it runs idle, but shuts down as soon as you start using any memory demanding applications (DVD player, image editing software, video editing software, etc.).

If the CPU heatsink is not clogged with dust and lint completely, you can use canned air and just blow it inside the laptop through the openings on the bottom and on the sides. It’s nice as a precaution measure, but it might not work if your laptop already has a problem and the heatsink is completely clogged.
  1. Open the laptop case, so you can access the CPU fan and the heatsink. In some cases you can access the heatsink through the latch on the bottom of the laptop. Sometimes (for example Toshiba Satellite A70/A75) you have to open the laptop case all the way down.
  2. Carefully disconnect the fan cables on the system board and remove the fan. If the fan makes unusual sound when it spins (grinding sound), I would recommend to replace the fan.
  3. Clean the fan and the heatsink with compressed air.
  4. I would also recommend removing old thermal grease from the CPU and applying new grease for better heat conductivity.

2000 ford excursion v10 driving down the road

Honestly you should send it into the dealer. I don't think guessing will help you. Typically it is a dirty connection into the steering column (behind the ignition key) But diagnostics need to be run and a look at the VSS system (through a good scan tool) is needed to confirm.

I've got benq joybook 5000U, the problem is sometimes it will aoutomatically shut down and reboot. It not the fan problem I think.Is anybody there has the same probs? What wrong?

I think it is shutting down to protect from overheating. Do you live in a hot climate? It is best to turn off for a while to cool down the circuitry. You can set it not to reboot when this occurs: start> controlpanel>performance&maintenance>system>advanced>startup&recovery>settings

Loss Of Sond When PS3 Gets Warm

probably the PS3 is overused, that's why it's warm. Shut it off when gets warm, or the least, after 4 - 5 hours of game play. That should help cool down the machines !
