Hp 6910p laptop wont turn off. Fan running. what gives?

Something is keeping it from shutting down. This could be caused by a faulty application or driver. My suggestion is to hold the power button down until the unit completely shuts down. Take out the battery, unplug the ac-adapter, attempt to power it on and then put the battery back in. Attempt to restart the computer.

Good Luck!

First you need to determine how many blinks you are getting when you try to power on the laptop.
Check the blinking codes below and reason behind that for HP Compaq laptops

Blinking battery power LED Battery Insufficient charge on the battery
Blink: 1 - Caps Lock/Num Lock - CPU CPU not functional
Blink: 2 - Caps Lock/Num Lock - BIOS BIOS corruption failure
Blink: 3 - Caps Lock/Num Lock - Memory Module error not functional
Blink: 4 - Caps Lock/Num Lock - Graphics Graphics controller not functional
Blink: 5 - Caps Lock/Num Lock - System board General system board failure
Blink: 6 - Caps Lock/Num Lock - BIOS BIOS authentication failure

Plz get back so I can suggest you the steps to resolve the issue.

This morning it just suddenly shut down on me and It doesn't restart. I have attempted to restart it using the last good configuration, it didn't work.

There isn't only one answer to your question, because there are many problems that can cause it.
So I will list some of the issues I know that cause it and hope it will help you.
1 - Heat problem ( the fan system isn't working fine - need to be replace)
2 - Some connection problem (like memories, HD's - try to reconnect them)
3 - OS problem (try to reinstall the Windows, Linux, etc)

I hope it can help you and if you have more details about the problem I guess I can help you more.

Toshiba Satellite A60 powers up then off after 2 seconds

Mark F K, truong808, does the cooling fan(s) blow or come on? If not, the system will sense tha ti is overheating and will shut down to prevent further damage. Also, a thermal sensor may be failing on the Mobo and thus keep the fan from initiating. The cheapest fix is to replace the fan. Worst case scenario is another Mobo may be the fix.
