Automatic shutdown due to thermal event?is this the CPU fan?

    Does the fan kick on when you turn the PC on? Thermal events usually point to overheating or the CPU...If the fan has stopped working you definately need to get a new one. Take some compressed air and blow the Heatsink and Fan out real good...dust and grime is a bad thing. If the problem persists, check to make sure the heat sink is properly touching the actual CPU underneath. Let me know how it goes...

Yeah, fan may be a problem. Keep the computer chase open or maybe use another fan and see what happens. Sometimes the cooler between the fan and the CPU may not be properly attached to the surface of the CPU.

Could be. It's just getting TOO hot in there. Listen and see if you can hear the fan working. Vacuuming out the CPU and all openings, case fan, power supply fan (vent) - as much as you can will ALWAYS improve heat related problems. Obviously, if you can not hear or see the fan working, you will know where the problem lies. If it the power supply fan, you will need a new power supply. Good luck. :)

Overheating causes pc shutdown


You are correct. The machine will shut down or Blue screen if it over heats. The over heating can be caused by the Heatsink on the CPU or GPU not providing a good enough heat conducting channel for cooling. Cleaning the fan is a good start, but also be aware of where the PC stands, is there sufficient ventilation for example to extract the hot air?
Being an All -in-One will make more difficult. But check if all electrical connections are secure as the power supply can also cause your machine to shut down and the power supply fan should also be cleaned.
To apply Thermal paste you have to dismantle the machine and get to the Motherboard. I suggest you take it to a repair centre as the dismantling can be difficult in these units.

Last shutdown due to thermal event


When the CPU overheats then it will shutdown (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 this 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 withdust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use acan of compressed air to do this.

Hi my laptop will turn off suddenly even though it is plugged


it may be shutting off due to thermal shutdown... basically the fan isn't keeping the cpu cool enough... check to make sure the fan is running and that the fan/cpu heatsink is clear of dust and dirt.

OVER HEATING


Hi,

Two possibilities:
  • the CPU is really overheating; and/or
  • the motherboard is falsely sensing high temp.
Corrective measure for an overheating CPU would be:
  • clean, re-lubricate or replace the fan;
  • clean or refit the heatsink. If it is overclocked, you may need a better heatsink.
If the CPU is not really heating up abd the motherboard is sensing erroneous temp readings, then the problem may be with:
  • BIOS version, try to flash and update the BIOS; and/or
  • check the temp probe underneath the CPU, it may need cleaning or slightly bending away from contact.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

D300a shutdown


With the message you are getting on your screen,there are couple things you need to do.First thing you need to do is make sure your cooling fans are all working if they are your next step is to go out and get a can of compressed air to clean the heat sink on the processor and any other cooling fan that needs to be cleaned before doing this unplug your computer to be on the safe side.If the heat sink looks clean you may need to remount the heat sink using thermal paste.Remember after cleaning your computer try to clean it often this is one thing that most computer user's overlook.
