The laptop is shutting down because the CPU is overheating (thermal shutdown) and if this problem is not fixed the CPU will eventually fail.
Replace the faulty fan and remove the dust from the heatsink.
While you are at it I suggest you apply fresh thermal paste on the CPU and hearsink.

How do you stop a laptop from shutting down?


When the overheating issue is fixed, the laptop will reset. Did you clean the radiator? Is the fan running?

Overheating


You will probably need to replace the CPU fan down the road and remove the old thermal grease between the heatsink and the processor ic for new compound, will make all the difference.

GOT AN ACER ASPIRE 5742Z AND THE FAN IS REALLY NOISY AND ALMOST ALL THE TIME ON


Without doubt symptomatic of overheating.(hence the fan trying to cool all the time)
You need to remove the bottom cover of the laptop and vacuum out any dust that has accumulated in the heatsink and fan area. You may have to on tis model, partly dismantle the laptop to get the heatsink and fan. Given the 2nd part of the problem you describe, this is no bad thing, as a niosy fan MIGHT indicate a dying fan bearing, if it is not just a matter of being clogged, a replacement with heatsink can be had for about a tenner on Ebay.

I must stress, do NOT use the laptop until you sort this, as overheating will eventually cause the graphics chip to unsolder

Pavillion dv7 1132nr runs very very hot all the time to the point it burns my hands. I have a large laptop fan cooler under it running all the time. It is also very noisy as the fan on the laptop is...


Hi,

I suggest try to call the manufacturer because if happens that its causing plastic burnt or dent due to overheating that means the hardware of the machine is failing, also the automatic shutdown is caused by overheating. If your going to call the manufacturer they have special support for those kind of issue.

Battery and/or overheating or ?


It is possible that the battery is not charging at all and can't pass electricity to the board. But if its 3yo, its probably really dead.

Also, if you can see a fan not working at all, overheating is also possible.

It is also possible that there is a tiny foreign object capable of conducting electricity, such as human hair, that gets activated at the slightest movement of the laptop by shorting some pins on your board.

So I would suggest to observe more or clean the inside of your laptop if you know how to remove your keyboard.

Try using Compressed Air in a can by the vents. I would not recommend taking apart the laptop.

Optoma EP739 Projector Overheating


Set the projector to "high altitude mode." It will be noisier, but won't overheat. I wonder whether using one of those $10-$20 laptop coolers underneath it might be a quieter solution.

NP9890 shut down


If it is an overheating problem try turning the laptop off, turning it over and placing a vacum on the fan grill on the bottom. Many laptops get a dirt buildup internally and this will sometimes suck out the dirt.
