Hello and happy new year.

After about 5min of using either programe the computer shuts itself off. I have a laptop presario model number m2515tu series running windows xp prof with 1.7ghz processor 60gb internal hardrive plus 160gb external harddrive and have 1024mb or memory. I had installed bluetooth drivers and I did a recent virus scan which came up with two infection though one showed on the hi speed navigator which is what I use to connect to the internet.

Re: shuts down during converting avi and doing search...

Depending on how your PC is shutting down, this can suggest a couple of problems.

1.)If you are getting kicked out with a Blue Screen of death and a memory dump, pay attention to the code about 75% down on the screen, that STOP error can tell you what the OS freaked out about and decided it couldn't keep running. STOP errors are actually good, because they give you a chance to know what is wrong, PLUS you know that it is probably just Windows at fault.

2.)If you are just plain getting dropped to full power off, more than likely you are over-heating. You can narrow down this possibility by getting yourself a diagnostic tool like Eurosoft's PC-Check to run a full myriad of tests on your hardware, this may prove a non-OS dependent (Hardware or BIOS) issue. You can also go to to try the CPU Burn-In tool to see if you are just crashing while Windows crunches numbers.
The fix can be anywhere as simple as replacing a burnt fan or running an air duster through your vents, to a software fix like re-installing windows (or trying the switch to Linux !!). There is really only about 3/10 machines that come my way with these problems that have genuinely defective hardware issues, so the chances are on your side, good luck!

Toshiba sattelite a665 keeps shutting down

Hello i think you have a overheating problem.
The problem can be solved by cleaning the cooling element that cools down the cpu.
Its probably blocked by dirt.
I do sometimes have luck cleaning it with compressed air but you should BE CAREFULL not to harm the mainboard.

I do sometimes also remove the cooling element and give the cpu new cooling paste.
If you not have tried that before it should be a task for a computer repair guy.

Good luck

It can perform a perfect performance in E-mail, enjoying photos, music and videos, and playing games. The one hundred forty thousand application in the utility store will enable to you do lots of things conveniently. The online iBook store can allow you to enjoy millions of books anywhere and anytime. Smart design and powerful function will make iPad App fans’ favorite in the near future.

Video actually played a big role during the announcement, with Job’s saying that a new device only made sense if it was better at watching video, among other tasks, than current laptops and smartphones. And the fact is that iPad can do a good job in HD movies and TV shows playback. The 9.7— inch LED-backlit glossy widescreen Multi-Touch display with IPS technology will make you enjoy a more wonderful visual experience than ever.

My laptop computer keeps shutting down even though it is plugged in.

Overheating could be the problem of continously shut down. Open your System and clean it with an air blower manily near the Processor part and remove the RAM and clean its legs with a white paper and place it again.

It will solve your problem.

New HP Mini w/ Windows XP ''Remote Procedure Call'' Shuts down


This may not be the answer you are looking for, but in my opinion, if you are experiencing system problems after a couple of days, I'd advise you to return the mini for a new one. If the supplier doesn't have a 30-day return policy, then contact HP.

Hope this helps.
