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

When I press the power on button, why does it just beep and won't turn on?


There is an interlock that shuts down the dehumidifier when the bucket is not in place or not seated correctly. There also may be a "bucket full" sensor that shuts it down mistakenly. Another possibility is that the compressor has failed.

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.

Buttons no longer work--power and OSD menu buttons don't work


I had the same problem. In frustration after trying everything else as I couldn't shut the monitor off, I shut the computer down, unplugged the power to all, and left it until this morning (12 hours). Now it works, so it must reset itself. I am waiting for feedback from their support as well but imagine they will tell me the same, good luck.

Samsung HLP6163W Problem- TV keeps turning off!


Well, I have had the same exact problem and since my hlp6163w is still under warranty, I had a technician come out to repair it. And...the winner is a bad ballast. The Ballast has also affected the bulb. So, the answer is you need to change the Ballast and the lamp to get the problem resolved. A faulty Ballast will always destroy a a lamp. Sorry for the bad news as this will cost you a total of $400.00 to replace. It sounds like there is a defect in the ballasts that were made for this particular set and a recall should be made. Hope this helps!

Shutting down without warning


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.
check mem.take them /it out of housing check for dust.. refit.
some tech's suggest taking mem out and swapping them around ..this has no impact the mere fact thet you remove clean and refit is all thats required.
