If your concern about turning itself of is a notebook or a laptop computer, it may be that the battery is not charged or the AC adapter/charger is not delivering power to the PC.

In some instances (including desktops) this could be because of a fault sensed in the hardware such as the CPU fan not turning, loose connection, dirty memory contacts. Additionally, if you are able to boot to the OS but thereafter shuts down, it is also possible for registry error, driver problems or even a malicious software or a virus.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again Marinko ,

    Appreciate the update.

    Since you are able to boot the OS and run for 5-15 minutes, then it is either a virus, a battery problem or a hardware issue. We can rule out the registry or driver possibility.

    Try running your antivirus for a full scan and clean/delete any found.

    On your Toshiba Notebook, try running it without the battery and see if problem persists. If problem is gone, you may need to charge the batteries at least overnight or have it replaced. Apparently, it is gobbling up all the power from the charger/adapter leaving nothing for the notebook to power itself.

    If even running on AC (without the batteries) and problem persists and there were no virus and malicious software detected, then it is possible a hardware issue within the notebook. This could be overheating (stuck up CPU fan), accumulated dust, memory or hard disk.

How can fix my laptop . it has turn its self up side dowm

The main reason for Windows system randomly because the computer has overheated. To fix this, if you have a laptop, then place the laptop onto a desk or flat surface to make sure that the air can get to it as designed and if you have a desktop, then you should take the side case off the computer and use a fan to cool air at your system.

Hp Pavilion DV 8000 (dv 8113 ea) heats up then hangs & turns off

I believe that would be the battery I would get a new battery that should solve the problem. When you use office or surf the internet that does not require as much power as playing games and watching videos. Just buy a new battery and that should solve the problem

It has problems getting it to turn on.. and when it does turn on, it suddenly turns off by itself after 10 to 15 minutes

It could be overheating (due to the failure of a fan inside the laptop) causing the computer to "self-protect" by shutting itself down.

Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC power.
Remove the battery.
Purchase a can of compressed air.
Use the air to give a "blow-job" into every air-port in the laptop -- a layer of dust will act as a layer of insulation, preventing the computer from radiating the build-up of heat.

When you turn the computer on, listen for the fan(s) to start running -- put the hairs on your arm near an "exhaust-port" on the PC, to feel if the fans are blowing air out of the laptop.
