CPU shutting down.

Ok, so my CPU has been shutting down randomly... more often lately. I think it might be overheating. I used to be able to hear the fan running but i can't hear it any more. Is that the case? How hard is it to switch the fan out?

    Hi,



    May I have the model name of the motherboard of your computer? The motherboard manual will contain the instructions to replace the CPU fan and it is an easy procedure. When we purchase the CPU fan, it shoudl match the socket type of the motherboard.



    Thank you and regards

Hi MonaMona,
Replacing a CPU fan is easy, but be carefull, the CPU will have old thermal grease on it, so unlatch the CPU at the same time you take the fan off. Because the CPU will come up with the fan, so unlatch the CPU pins, to release the CPU pins, when taking the fan off. And when putting the new fan on the CPU, & the fan nust be smaller then 80mm, the sell just CPU fans. Make sure you put on thermal grease on the CPU, so it won't over heat & will protect your CPU, also don't cake on the grease. Put on a small amout & spread it on the CPU thin. Let me know if that does it for you.

Good Luck with it.

NEW HP Spectre 13T-3000, 13.3" Touch will not run with the battery and shuts down randomly


you can use the unit without the battery. Remove the battery, plug in the charger/power supply and turn on the unit and wait for the result. if the problem persist?..... maybe the fault is in CPU fan. check the fan...overheating the processor. Cleaning the heat sync and reapplying silicon compound on CPU's can cure the problem.

Random shut down


Overheating When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are clogged with 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 sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed air to do this.

How can i tell if the fan on my vaio CS31S isnt working properly? It seems to speed up and down and the laptop shuts down? Is it te fan or could there be another reason for this shutdown? :-)


Try blowing out any dust from around the fan with compressed air. If the fan is turning on and off a lot, this could be normal, depending on your processor, but if the system just shuts down fully and randomly, it would be a heat issue. The CPU is overheating and the failsafe mechanism is to instantly shut your computer down. The only way to avoid this is to raise the CPU shutdown temp in the BIOS settings, or if you can access the CPU, remove it and apply new, quality thermal grease. Also, ensure the fan is operating correctly during use and dont block any air intake or exhaust ports.

Random Shutdown


Toshiba's are notorious dust collectors, try blowing back through the air vents and some clever use of the vacuum cleaner on the intakes can bring it back to life. also check the RAM for dust and dirt on the pins and clean as required. USE ANTI-STATIC Precautions!

Random shut down


Yes.... over heating can and will cause a system shutdown..

Download and install speedfan ( http://www.almico.com/sfdownload.php ) It will most likely tell you how hot things are really getting......

Depending on what cpu you have, you may have a thermal paste problem, you may need to remove the heatsink and re-apply heatsink thermal paste to the bottom of the heatsink and reseat ontop of the cpu. This will void any warranty if you PC still has any left.

My ibm thinkpad r51 laptop keeps shutting down randomly


Check your heat vents and make sure they are free of dust. You could also have a CPU that is overheating. In that case we would take out the CPU, renew the thermal and replace. A short term solution and by far the least expensive would be to purchase a laptop cooling fans. They are powered by your USB ports and they cost anywhere from $30 -$50. We use them quite often on older laptops and owners who are cash strapped.
