It sounds like an overheating problem. When it is booted, does it run ok other than just being slow? Check your cooling fan and make sure it is running and not stopped up. That is a number one symtom of overheating is freezing and rebooting by itself. There is a free program called "Motherboard Monitor 5" that will monitor the temp for you and set off an alarm when it is getting to hot. Check that problem first. Hopes this helps!

My Sony Vaio VGN-CR320E turns itself off all the time. I have already formatted it, but the problem continues... What can I do?


IS it getting hot. Check the fans. It'll shut down if the fans aren't running and everything gets to hot. You might be able to use compressed air and blow out your vents and fan blades. Dust builds up and limits air flow causing extra heat, and then shut down. IF your running your laptop on your lap, make sure your not covering any vents or air flow. Its easy to do and not realize it.

Tip

How to stop over heating laptops or computers.


1. Fix Internal Cooling. The first and most important thing you need to do when your laptop is overheatingis to clean the fan(s) that provide(s) cooling to the CPU and graphics card. Over time, they build up layers of dust and dirt that slow them down and block airflow.
A laptop that severely overheats causes damage to the internal components. Before this happens, the laptop should attempt to shut itself down. ... If you smell smoke, a burning odor, the fans never run or the fan runs all the time, be careful to avoid ruining your laptop.
The most common cause of laptop overheating is a non-working fan. ... Viruses, spyware, adware and other types of malware put a heavy strain on the CPU and other components of your laptop. This causes those components to heat up, often to a point where the fan simply cannot move enough air over them to cool them down.
Determine Whether Your Computer Is Overheating or Just Hot. Laptops get hot. It's what they do. However, if your laptop is shutting down, suffering from the blue screen of *****, or experiencing serious slowdowns, then you have a much bigger problem on your hands.
A laptop that severely overheats causes damage to the internal components. Before this happens, the laptop should attempt to shut itself down. ... If you smell smoke, a burning odor, the fans never run or the fan runs all the time, be careful to avoid ruining your laptop.
Heat is a computer's enemy. Computers are designed with heat dispersion and ventilation in mind so they don't overheat. If too much heat builds up, your computermay become unstable, suddenly shut down, or even suffer component damage.

The compressor should turn on after it cools. It shuts down if it overheats to prevent damage/fire. The compressor itself could be bad but more than likely the fan is dead.

Shut down itself


Hi i'm Rain.
If your Laptop is over heating you may need to look into a stronger type of cooling system { Fan }
But for now lets set up your power Options settings
to try to keep your CPU cool.
In power options select Power Saver.
If you see the selection to keep the fan running select it also. save and exit.
Hopefully this will help to keep your system cool until you can service it.

Inspiron 6000 powers off by itself


It could be that your laptop is overheating. Most computers have a heat sensor that will shut down the system when it starts to get to hot. Next time it shuts down, check to see how hot the air coming out of the fans on the laptop is. If the problem is overheating, be sure that you always have it sitting on an area that allows the fans to push the hot air out of the laptop. If it still overheats, you may want to get a can of compressed air to clean out the fan itself.
Hope this helps.

Turns itself off & gets hot -don't think fan is kicking on


Since you do not hear the fan anymore I would start by opening up the case and seeing if power is going to the fan and make sure any connectors for it have not come loose. If the connectors are still hooked up chances are the fan is shot and needs to be replaced.

If you are not familiar with working around electronics and parts under power I would highly suggest you have some one who is familiar with this do it.

Hi,
The Laptop Shuts Down, Due the Processor Reaching It,s Heat Limitations, as set by the Bios/Motherboard Et,c. This Is A Safety function to Avoid Any Further Damage To The CPU Or Other internal Hardware. If the CPU Fan is not functioning, this is likely the cause. To Remedy this Problem, you,d look at removing the faulty fan ( Replace With New ) Or fully functioning Fan. And replacing the thermal Patch Or Paste, Between The CPU ( Processor ) And Heatsink Or Mating surface Between CPU/FAN.
I,d suggest not using the Laptop, until this has been repaired, as you will only cause more damage, which in turn. will become unrepairable. or very costly.
Mike @ Compurepair.
