Check the CPU fan it may not be spinning at the full speed or not turning at all. Check that there is not cable that is obstructing the fan blades. When the CPU over heats the machine will shutdown to save it from any damage. Then other thing to check is the power switch make sure that it is not sticky or stuck in. It also could be a memory issue but normally there will be a blue screen fault and audio beeps when you first switch on.

Try these Thanks J

My lenovo g560 randomly shut down


Sounds like your taxing your system too hard. Perhaps you need to purchase a beefy-er CPU, graphics card, or cooling fan.

Asus k52f keeps shutting down randomly


I have seen the odd case where the power supply cannot keep up with the demands when the laptop is running causing it to shut down, but first! remove the main battery to see if that helps, no change! I recommend replacing the power supply adapter in hopes it will correct the problem. Go to www.ebay.com Type make and model of laptop, refine search to power supply and go through the list of prices.

Shuts down


Hi,

This is a typical symptom of a failing power supply. Replace your power supply and see if the problem still persists.

Please notify me should you need any further assistance.

Laptop randomly shuts down and shows a blue screen saying


Make sure you don't have any unecessary programs loading up into windows when your laptop boots up. The next time the system randomly reboots check to see if the laptop feels a bit warmer then normal. Could be that your air vents are being blocked by dust. That would cause the air not to flow properly. Take a can of air and blow the vents clear so the air can flow properly and that would take care of the problem.

Computer Randomly Cuts off


processor overheating. When it gets too hot it automatically shuts your pc down and boots it back up. Even if the fan is running, it could not be supplying enough cool air anymore.

M55-S135 Randomly Powers Off Whenever Moved


Hi,

The only problem i see here is the Battery contact with your laptop.
Its somewhere loosely connected. Just get it checked or you can test it yourself, hold the battery tight to your laptop and shake it and test it like it will shut down in any other case, if its not, then surely its a battery loose contact problem.

Hope this helps.

Thanks.

Shut down icon


That is a strange problem.
I will help you to create a shortcut on your desktop for that icon, whenever you need to shutdown your computer, just click that shortcut on the icon.

Right click on the Desktop.
Left click on New > Shortcut.

In the Type the location of the item: textbox enter
%windir%\System32\shutdown.exe -s

The -s parameter is used to shut down the computer.

The following two parameters can be used with -s:
-f Forces running applications to close without warning.
-t xx Set timeout for shutdown to xx seconds.

The following command would shut down instantly.
%windir%\System32\shutdown.exe -s -f -t 00

Click the Next > button.

In the Type a name for this shortcut: textbox enter
Shutdown My Computer (or some other name of your choice)

Click the Finish button.
