Sounds like an overheating issue, I would suggest using a cooling pad.

shuts down unexpected, - 325aed8.jpg It's a simple device, you just rest your laptop on it and the fans do the work.

Sometime they overheat when working in a confined space, make sure you have ample room aroung the laptop for ventialtion.

Hope this helps

Samsung Laptop Shuts Down Unexpectedly


It may be overheating. Try using a vacuum cleaner hose on the air vents, that will help to clear the ventilation for the radiator.

Lenovo unexpected shut down


I suggest you return it to the supplier for an exchange or repair or refund as it would be still under warranty.
If you try to fix it yourself you will void your warranty.

Asus u52 shut down unexpectedly


When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the 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 with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.

My A215 wont stay powered up. It shut down and


Try running the computer on the Battery power and check if the power sustains. If not, then disconnect the power cord and remove the battery and leave it for a few hours then try turning it on.

If the problem exists then the power supply unit is required to be replaced. You may contact service center to get the power supply unit replaced.

Screen is off


With the machine only being two weeks old, I would RUN not walk back to the store for an exchange. This is a hardware malfunction or failure, and there is no way that the machine should have done this in such a short amount of time. Just tell them that the machine froze, you shut it down by holding the power button down (there was no other way), and now it won't boot. Don't tell them that you left it until the battery ran out, a sudden shut down due to a dead battery can cause damage, and they may give you a warranty run around for that. If they give you any type of run around, demand a manager, then demand he/she give you an exchange. Don't take the run around and don't be afraid to get loud. Managers back down quick to a loud irate customer, they don't like other customers to think badly of their store. NOTE: If a machine ever freezes, and they will, you should shut it down by holding the power button down. It takes a few seconds, but the power button will override the system and shut the machine down. Most freeze ups are just due to software glitches and will start right back up, but in your case it's hardware, since the machine will not start up at all.

shutting down this way is usually loose or ill fitted hd,sometimes mem or conflicting software.
take out hd refit making sure housed properly.start up pc and see how it goes.
