I SAY STOP FEELING UP YOUR COMPUTER :) TRY CLEANING ALL COOLING FANS INCLUDING THE POWER SUPPLY! CPU FANS, SYSTEM FANS ETC. ALSO TRY TAKING OFF THE CPU FAN AND MAKE SURE THE PROCESSOR HAS BEEN COATED WITH HEAT RESISTANT COMPOUND. A GOOD CLEANING ALWAYS DOES WONDERS!

The first thing you should do is buy a can of compressed air (most electronic shops sell it for under $10) and completely blow out the inside of your computer and fans. Then check to make sure all of your fans are working. Unfortunatley the life expectency of computer fans is a lot shorter than the components they are cooling.

When in use ,just went off nothing.fully charged.


This solution applies to a CQ56 that suddenly shuts down after a half hr or so and feels hot to the touch. Get a computer tech to dismantle your machine and clean out the cooling fan which would be clogged with dust. The longer you wait may just cause a catastrophic GPU failure due to overheating. The AMD sets run hot.

Tip

How to REVIVE your dead laptop battery


  1. If your notebook computer is still under warranty, then by all means get the battery replaced!
  2. There’s no guarantee that this tip will work with your notebook battery; but so far this tip has never failed me
  3. If you have the money and there’s still available stock for your notebook battery, then just buy a replacement unit you cheapskate
  4. I won’t be held responsible for any damages or injuries resulting from following this tip. You have been warned!
OK, now that the above has been made clear, here’s the tip: freeze the battery! Yup, that’s the concept. However, here’s the proper way to do it in easy to read steps:
  1. Remove the battery from the notebook computer
  2. Wrap the battery with old newspaper, making sure that it envelops the battery tightly
  3. Repeat step 2 above with at least three pieces of large sheet newspaper (if you’re using tabloid sized newspaper, then use at least five pieces)
  4. Place the wrapped battery in the freezer compartment of your refrigerator
  5. Let it stay in that cryogenic state for three to seven days
Once your battery has been given the frozen treatment, do not directly plug it into your notebook! Let the battery thaw to normal room temperature within the newspaper wrapping by leaving it in the open for at least half a day (overnight is recommended).
Tear off the newspaper wrapping and touch the battery. Does it feel cool to the touch? If so, then leave it at room temperature for a few more hours. Once it feels just about room temperature, take a piece of tissue and wipe the contact points of the battery just in case there’s some traces of moisture there.
Once this is done, plug it in your notebook computer, plug in the power adapter and leave your notebook in “charging” state. Do not power on the notebook!
Give your battery time to fully charge (this depends on your notebook/battery model). Once you’re 100% confident that the battery is fully charged, say your prayers, cross your fingers and power on your notebook. If all goes well, your battery should be working just fine.

Keeps restarting itself


Hello,
It could be an overheating issue. Are there any error messages that pop up when it turns off? Try touching the bottom part of the computer, do you feel any heat or something like that?
Try booting to safe mode and observe if it does the same thing inside safe mode. If it does, then you might need to replace the fan or clean the interior part of your computer.

My Sony VGN-CR590 shuts down after 5-10 minutes. How can this be fixed? I'm not sure the fans are running.


A way to check to see if the machine is overheating is when you turn on the computer, there should be an option to hit F10 or F2 for the bios. In there, there should be a few temperature readings. Let the machine idle and in the bios if the tempature rises in there there could be an issue with the cooling for the CPU.

Overheating on Compaq Presario Notebook Model C501NR


OverheatingWhen 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 daughter's sony vaio vgn-cr420e turns off suddenly and randomly while in windows. battery is currently not in and no overheating is present, which i understand could cause such a problem. however,...


It is very hard to tell when the processor is overheating. The laptop may not feel hot at all. If it is an overheating problem, there could be two different causes. One, the fan may be failing or completely failed. Two, there could be dust buildup on the heatsink which you would not be able to see by looking in the vents. The laptop would need to be disassembled to check the heatsink for the buildup. An easy way to check to see if the fan is working is to turn the computer on, let it run for just a few minutes and if the fan is not blowing hard enough for you to feel it with your hand, try holding the vents up near your face to see if you can feel any air flow.

Random shut downs.


Random shutdowns are normally caused by your computer overheating. The CPU has a protect mechanism that automatically shuts down when it reaches a certain temp so it does not damage the CPU. If you are computer savvy you can download a program called HWinfo or check your BIOS for CPU temperature readings as it runs..otherwise take it to a technician, however, as I always recommend have the technician show you the increased tempature before agreeing to any hardware fixes..if you have any questions let me know. Pls rate this solution.
