Deffinently sounds like and over heating issue, whether its a fan or poor ventilation. Try a chillpad or applying some Arctic Silver 5 thermal compound to the processor.

Pc shuts down on it's own


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.

What would keek my desktop computer from shutting down? Only thing I can think of is my cpu fan has become louder than what it used to be and continously runs from the time I turn on the computer until I...


The CPU fan is always running in all PC's - if it didn't then the CPU would over heat and the PC would crash. If the PC is not shutting down when instructed then something is preventing the operating system from carrying out the command - for example a program running in the background.
I would suggest run a virus scan first (make sure your anti virus is up to date first). Post a reply how you get on, with the results.

CPU fan failure causes system to aromatically shut down..


Without a proper working cpu fan the cpu will overheat and shut the computer down... if not fry the cpu. You will need to replace the cpu fan and hope the overheating didn't mess up the cpu or something on the motherboard.

My Sony VGN CR25 laptop shuts down automatically. What is the issue and how can it be fixed?


If you are notusing your laptop on a flat surface, it may be obstructing the cooling vents onthe bottom of the laptop. Your laptop fanmay be faulty and not spinning freely, in this case replace the fan.
Check the fan and heat sink assembly and remove the dust, loosen the dust anduse a can of compressed air to clear away the dust. A laptop fanassisted cooling pad may solve your problem

Hp 6910p laptop wont turn off. Fan running. what gives?


Something is keeping it from shutting down. This could be caused by a faulty application or driver. My suggestion is to hold the power button down until the unit completely shuts down. Take out the battery, unplug the ac-adapter, attempt to power it on and then put the battery back in. Attempt to restart the computer.

Good Luck!

Hp 6720s lap top running - vista does not load


If the laptop runs extremely hot, then CPU will shut down (thermal overload) and will not boot up again until it has cooled down.
Overheating problems is caused by faulty fan (stop spinning) or the fan and heatsink assembly is clogged with dust. Check the fan, it should spin freely and remove and vacuum the dust from the fan and heatsink.
Replace the fan if it is faulty.

My hp pc seems to try to start on but then it shuts down immedia.


Hi there.
If its the CPU (processor fan) thats not working, it could well be the machine overheating and shutting down to prevent further damage to the machine, try another fan, if it spins up the CPU fan has gone and will need to be replaced.
If you have a working fan but it doesn't work on the motherboard, check the power supply unit as that could be faulty.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
