Shuts down after 30 seconds

Laptop boots just fine then after 30 to 45 seconds later completely shuts down.

    Mine does the same thing. The battery light starts out blue then turns amber. Taking battery out just makes it shut down faster. ?? I read the part about CPU fan & I don't hear it running or feel air blowing out the side. But what do I do about that??



    Thanks in advance for your help & patience!

I've got the same problem. I've googled until my fingers bled. All the posts are from people who think they have an idea, or things to check.
The bottom line is I'm certain its going into thermal shut down, but I have no idea why. I had a meter on the pins of the fan plug and it gets power, and then shuts off after 2-3 seconds. Not a fan failure but the circuit shuts the power off. I had my finger on the copper slug on top of the chip and it never gets warm to the touch. I've changed thermal paste, I've changed ram, cpu, still no idea what is wrong with it. My DC jack is nice and tight, and the power supply I use is of the correct voltage, and amperage.

Remove the battery and connect the laptop to power outlet, if it works then it was battery. If it still turns off then it is probably the cpu fan. Check if it is spinning.
If none of the above the comuter may be set up to go standby after 1 minute.

  1. I've had my Toshiba Satellite A105 for as of April 08 two years my laptop battery will not charge- it starts green then turns amber color then shuts down, if I unplug the electric charger. What is the life of a battery? I brought it brand new in the box. Never used the battery-I usually have it plug in.
  2. Did I burn out the battery? Should I have unpluged it? Help

This is generally a hardware issue - if the computer is under warranty get it fixed through Acer. If not you may need professional help. You don't mention how old the laptop is but if it is older than a year or two and you live in a dusty environment it could be overheating. If the fan is not running or always running on super-high then it is probably overheating.

Another thing to try is using a boot CD (any boot CD will work) and see if the computer still shuts down after that 30 seconds. If yes, definitely hardware. If not, possible that it's a windows issue.

Hope that helps!

Compressor runs 45 seconds off for 2 minutes cycles like this no voltage change


In order to accurately determine and diagnose the problem, a more detailed description of the problem needs to be communicated as opposed to normal operation of the system so a repair person can determine that there is in fact a problem. There's a big difference between solving a problem via text as opposed to seeing what is wrong in the field. They rarely are the same.

Goodman condenser sequence of operation on a matched system. Call for cool, condenser starts, 15-30 seconds later blower motor starts, cool satisfied, condenser shuts down, 15-45 seconds later blower motor shuts down. House heats ups and a call for cool via the thermostat starts another cycle.

Based on normal operation it is impossible to determine whats wrong with the information given. There are perhaps 5 voltage measurements in the system that you could be referring to.

Laptop boots then shuts automatically off


Try this, if you have a fast hand, the second it boots, push Ctrl+Shift+Esc and end taskeng.exe.
If you can't do it fast enough, try booting into safe mode, going to scheduled tasks, and removing any suspicious ones.
If you don't know how to boot to safe mode, push f8 until you see a screen which allows you to choose safe mode.
