What you have to do it..open up and clean the fan or cooler inside..I think the flow of air is being blog by dirt.You can test by
putting your hand next to the flow of air at the side of your notebook and see that the flow of air is strong or not.Most cases
is the problem I mentioned above.
Takecare.

I can't able to download file or view file from internet.as long as i start it my laptop automatically shutdowns.plz guide.


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.

My laptop runs good for about an hour then shuts off. I think it's over heating. What is the best solution to fix this?


If it is just overheating then you can do a couple of different things:

1) Make sure you use the laptop with plenty of space around it so it has air to the fans.

2) Buy a cooling platform designed to help with overheating.

Also, you may need to do a complete diagnostic to make sure everything is still good. Overheating can burn up the transistors quickly.

If your computer occasionally shuts off it may be due to overheating. As a safety precaution your computer will shutdown upon reaching a certain temperature. If you are using your laptop in bed, and it is resting on a blanket or some other object is blocking the fan it may cause the laptop to overheat. Try elevating the laptop or getting a laptop mat with built in fan to help keep it cool. If there is an issue with the Nvida card changing the BIOS will not help.

Insufficient information, but try this for starters:

Make sure the laptop sits on a hard surface and the fan vents are not covered/clogged.

1) Run windows only on a fully charged battery and see if it overheats
2) If not, run media player only, and look for the same

If it overheats in either step, you have a hardware/software problem.

Hardware problem could be that the fan has failed completely and needs to be replaced.

Software problem could be incorrect fan settings, although I do not think you can turn the fan OFF on a laptop.

IF the laptop overheats in Step 1, I would definitely suspect a hardware problem. In that case, run the laptop but do NOT log into windows. Go into the BIOS (check fan settings in there, if there are any).. leave it running in BIOS and see if it overheats then.

Shuts down


Hi..

If the laptop shutdown maybe it cause overheating.
Laptop shuts down? Computers may not be smarter than people, but if they’re designed properly, they will shut themselves down before overheating to the extent that they do themselves damage. If the smart person keeps turning the notebook back on and figures out a way to foil the protection, the laptop is probably doomed. Once a laptop shuts down for thermal event protection, it may refuse to power back up for a fixed period of time, five or ten minutes, or it may begin to boot and shut down immediately as soon as it boots to the point that it can figure out that its too hot. The over-temperature protection is generally a BIOS rather than an operating system function, so one sign of an overheated laptop is one that shuts itself down while you’re using it and then refuses to boot as far as the operating system unless you leave it alone for an hour or so to cool down. Unless you’ve been working in a very unfriendly environment, high temperatures, direct sunlight, etc, you should take even a single overheating shutdown as a warning to back up your data at the first opportunity and to give the cooling system a serious cleaning.

Good luck !!!

Laptop shuts off every ten minutes


Probably the fact that the fan is not working at the correct speeds (faster when working on processes), because of probable deposits of sticky coffee is more than likely causing the shutdowns, especially if there is no screen warning coming up.
