A quick fix is to blow back into the vents to blow dust out.

May need to dismantle though and clean fan and maybe even remove heatsink and renew thermal paste.

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?

Advent 5712 fan


Clean the fan, vents, heatsink with a can of Compressed Air, you may have to open the Laptop to clean thoroughly. Improve air flow through the bottom and out the side vents, or your laptop's components will fail catastrophically, rendering your laptop useless. A Laptop Cooler is a option. Hopefully the Graphics Adapter and the CPU have not suffered terminal damage. The Thermal Paste may need replacing. There are sensors that, when overheating occurs, shut down the laptop to prevent a melt-down.

I have a ACER 5735 . The laptop shuts down suddenly while its on and sometimes im not able to switch on the laptop and even if i switch on , then once again the power goes off immediately . What would be...


Hi,

The reason for the sudden shut down of your computer is because of overheating of the 'case', where the CPU is mounted. Overheating can be due to dust accumulation on the heat sink, which prevents dissipation of heat. The possible solution to combat overheating issue is to keep the laptop dust free by cleaning out debris at the vents frequently. Note that a laptop has a much smaller cooling area in comparison with desktops and hence laptops tend to accumulate dust a lot quicker than desktops. This is because all the dust/debris, in the case of laptops, accumulate in the cooling fins.

Laptop keeps shutting off by itself


When you encounter about this issue this is overheating problem maybe the CPU fan is not spinning and faulty already, you need to check the CPU fan and replace a new one.

Computers may not be smarter than people, but if they’re designed properly, they will shut themselves down before overheating to the extent that they do themselves damage. If the smart person keeps turning the notebook back on and figures out a way to foil the protection, the laptop is probably doomed.

Once a laptop shuts down for thermal event protection, it may refuse to power back up for a fixed period of time, five or ten minutes, or it may begin to boot and shut down immediately as soon as it boots to the point that it can figure out that its too hot.

The over-temperature protection is generally a BIOS rather than an operating system function, so one sign of an overheated laptop is one that shuts itself down while you’re using it and then refuses to boot as far as the operating system unless you leave it alone for an hour or so to cool down.

Unless you’ve been working in a very unfriendly environment, high temperatures, direct sunlight, etc, you should take even a single overheating shutdown as a warning to back up your data at the first opportunity and to give the cooling system a serious cleaning.

Advent laptop overheating


Check the jack on the machine to see if it's loose or broken. Use a small screwdriver, and see if you can move it in any direction. If it is loose or broken, get it fixed imediately. A loose or broken jack can create an electrical arch which can do severe damage to the machine.
