Question about HP Pavilion ze2000 Notebook

1 Answer

Sudden shutdown / will not power up

After about 15-20 min. of use the notebook would shut down (possible heat related) fan would run at different rates of speed. HP support said to repair the OS with the CD. The cd ran, it said it was preparing to shut down, then the notebook shut off. Now when I try to power up, the screen lights up for half a second, with the sound of the hard drive powering up( also half a second ) then the power shuts off.
What can be done?

I love my notebook but all of a sudden its shuts down because it continues to get hot underneath and its not the battery..I log on and it may last 15 mins maybe 45min at the most...what is going on? I

When the CPU in the computer or laptopoverheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot upagain until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then theCPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes this problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan. If the fan and heat sink is clogged withdust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use acan of compressed air to do this.

My laptop Sony Vaio CS 320J is shutting down with out any notice(not proper shut down but poweroff while running) and not booting again for @ least 2 mins. recently this issue started and this is...

Remove the bottom pan to expose the cooling fan, clean all dirt out of the heat sink and fins,and clean fan, next remove the heat sink to expose the processor ic, remove the old thermal grease with rubbing alcohol, and apply fresh thermal conductive compound to the heat sink and processor, "not to much! just enough to cover the critical areas and assemble. In most cases this will solve the shutdown problem.

I am trying to reload my computer and about 10 minutes into the recovery process it shuts down. I have replace the fan, the hard drive, the battery, the keyboard, the power cord, and memory. Why does it...

90% of the time shutdowns are related to heat problems in the CPU or GPU (Video). The laptop will shutdown to avoid damage. Verify the cooling fins on your heat sink are not clogged as an external cooling fan will not correct this problem. If the fan is running test with a strip of tissue or candle and verify you have air circulation.
If you are certain temperature is not an issue, the next step is to insure you are not having hardware related errors.
You should always start with a completely charged battery and also have your adapter plugged connected.
Finally be sure you are using the original recovery software (incorrect licensing will abort the recovery process).

When I was turning on my laptop after 5 mins. my laptop turning off on its self. I need your advice solution.

When the laptop shuts down and you can't boot up until it has cooled down, then your notebook could have an overheating problem. The CPU shuts down when it overheats (thermal shutdown) and if this problem is not fixed the the CPU will eventually fail.
The overheating problem could be caused by a faulty CPU fan or the fan and hear sink assembly is clogged with dust.
Check the CPU fan and if is does not spin freely then it needs to be replaced. If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust, then remove the dust, you can also use a can of compressed air to clear the dust from the heat sink fins.

My acer aspire 5315 shuts off suddenly and won't restart till it wants to. I replaced the battery, no difference....what's wrong?

This could be a sign that your laptop is overheating. If you touch the laptop while it is running & you find it too hot, make sure that the fan is running properly & that the air ways are not blocked.
You can blow compressed air into the cooling vents of the fan. If you notice clouds of dust coming out, then it might be a good idea to disassemble the laptop, clean the fan & air ways, & reassemble it back. If the fan has failed & is no longer running, it might need to be replaced

ACER ASPIRE 3000 gets power off after some time automatically

If the laptop shuts down by itself and deosn't boot up again after some time, then the problem could be an over heating problem. The CPU shuts down when it overheats (thermal shutdown) and it is usually caused by a faulty fan and or the fan and heat-sink is clogged with dust.
Check the fan and if it does not spin freely then replace the fan and or remove the dust from the fan and heat-sink assembly.

I have a dell inspirion 1501 and it just shuts off.

There could be several possiblities for your shutdown issue. Run diags Fn+Power button, see if system power off running diags or in the BIOS. If the system remains running in both, shutdown issue is more than likely software. If it doesnshut off in diags.BIOS, try plowing out the cooling intake and exhaust vents with compressed air. Make sure system is on a hard flat surface where can circulate around the system and the fan is operational. If the fan doesn't work, it will need replacement.
If the system will run in the safe mode then software is likely for the issue and a good antivirus or anti-malware program my be of help

Acer 5520 power shutdown

Possible heat issue. Check the cooling fans and see if theyre running. Usually one on the bottom, back or side of the laptop. Make sure that the cooling vents arent blocked during use.

Laptop doesn't work on battery after charging

If you are planning to open the notebook make sure the cpu cooler is mounted flush and has the most possible amount of contact with the cpu for heat transfer. I don't know about yours but normally in bios you can set a fatal temperature shutdown. Try to look up what cpu you have (when you open the case) and see if maybe the temperature is set too low. Then you would be able to reset the temperature to something higher if possible and this would solve the overheating shutdown problem.

It could also be the CPU "heat sensor" causing a "thermal" shutdown.
Try a hairdryer on cold blow, and point it in where the CPU cooler is!

see does the laptop stay on longer. Thermal paste dosen't usualy "go" unless the heat sink has be detached from the CPU.

I think as you say either the fan or I think the heat sensor.
