HP Envy laptop supposedly overheating

Repeated high temperatures are terrible for computers you should check the fans or have someone check them. If those are fine it might be a motherboard or processor problem.

How do i resolve my aspire 5741G laptop,it turn to auto shutdown mostly during i play the games

Most likely overheating. You can tell that by some parts of your laptop getting very hot when playing games. The only thing you can try and do is to remove dust from your laptop. Especially from the parts on the back that cover fans. Those fans are covering the processor and graphics card that is overheating. You need to remove dust from there. Best for it is air in can. You can also try with vacuum cleaner.

My sony laptop suddenly shut down itself when am playing a game. it shuts with a certain sound

Laptops are very often overheating, so it wouldn't be a surprise if you playing the game makes it even hotter and it just shuts down to protect itself from damage.
You can try using a cooling pad/fan or just make sure the laptop fans can circulate air freely.

Random shutdown problem

Hey, will be cpu related ie overheating, when your playing games causes the cpu temperature to increase once it hits around 60c it will restart to save damage to your laptop, i would suggest making sure the fan is working if not have it replaced, but depending on ya knowledge i would suggest taking it to a shop to repaste cpu and clean out heatsink etc.

Lenovo Y410 laptop is getting hot and shutdown automatically.

When systems power off suddenly, always suspect - the power first. I would then look at heat and physical connections next as culprits. Memory errors almost always show up as blue screens.
I say try a new power supply and see what it does. Its not a lot of money either way.

Run CPUID Hardware Monitor and watch your temps. You will have to turn logging on or you will lose the data in a crash.
Make sure your CPU heatsink is still connected properly. Things have a way of working loose.

Sony vaio system becomes hot and shutdowns

More than likely the fan above the processor is not working. Or the vents are clogged on the computer case due to dust/dirt. Ventilation.Check the fans.

My asus notebook m6b00 keeps overheating and tunring off why?

Laptop overheating has become a more common problem in recent years as both the CPU chips and the video chips in laptop computers have become more densely packed with transistors, all of which generate heat. With both CPUs and graphic systems generating more heat, laptops can overheat if they are not properly designed or if ventilation and cooling is interfered with. The problem is compounded when manufacturers put desktop components in mobile systems, or when laptop design does not properly provide for laptop cooling under foreseeable normal use of the systems.
Laptop overheating most commonly signals itself by sudden, otherwise unexplained shutdown of an operating computer. If your laptop computer suddenly shuts down for no known reason, there is a high likelihood that the fail safe software in the computer is shutting it down when the computer temperature gets too high. Other signs of overheating notebook computers include constant or excessive fan operation, unexplained memory or operation errors, and inexplicable “blue screens of death.”
The problem often arises when you are using your computer intensively in ways that keep the CPU operating at high capacity and the hard drive and video systems busy as well. Gaming often leads to laptop overheating. Virus scans, compiling software and similar intensive tasks can also bring on the problem. The problem also, not surprisingly, sometimes occurs when the temperatures are high in the setting where the laptop is being used.
The consequences of overheating laptops can be quite serious. Your computer can be damaged, and may end up requiring expensive replacement of major system components, such as motherboards or graphic cards. In addition, medical researchers have reported health issues ranging from sterility to burned genitalia related to use of overheated laptops by fully clothed users.
If you have an overheating laptop and your computer is still under warranty, you should promptly report the problem to the manufacturer and seek their help. Because many manufacturers seem to engage in denial rather than cures with regard to this particular problem, you should also read the information on laptop overheating on this and related sites so you can better understand the causes, the consequences and the possible cures for notebook computer overheating.

Here is the to see some tips on why your laptop is overheating.

Good luck!

Fast overheating inspiron 9400

This sounds like the system has glitched. Do a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. This should clear the glitch, get it back up and running, and cure the overheating problem. Try this and get back to me if there are any issues.
