TRY,, cleaning the fans/heatsink grills.
Sometimes the overheating/shutdown is due to damage to the motherboard, and as it heats up, it flexes and expands and it just looses power.
I cleaned a friends laptop yesterday (re fitted the cpu/gpu heatsinks), got rid of virus/malware problems, it stayed on for 1 hour in safe mode, thought i had fixed it.
Booted normally and of it went after 5 minutes.
Google your model number to see if this is a common fault for you

Do you have the laptop on a hard surface or is it on your lap or a pillow? You must have lots of air circulation to keep the laptop cool.

I would suggest buying a laptop cooler, a device that has fans and plugs into the USB ports. They are in major computer stores and usually are under $30.

My hp pavilion g7 is overheating and shutting down


first check your ventilation port on the side or back of your laptop. These can become covered in dust and make your laptop very hot. After you've done that, if it's still overheating, try and find a free cpu fan diagnostic tool and make sure the fan is even running or if it's running at the proper speeds. If it's not running, check your drivers. Go to the hp website, then support and downlads and lookup your model laptop. It's on the bottom of your laptop. Download the cpu fan driver if available and reinstall it. If it's still not working after all of that, your fan is shot and will need to be replaced.

Hi,

I suggest try to call the manufacturer because if happens that its causing plastic burnt or dent due to overheating that means the hardware of the machine is failing, also the automatic shutdown is caused by overheating. If your going to call the manufacturer they have special support for those kind of issue.

My laptop shut off by itself, and wont turn back on. It is a new laptop. It is charged.


Sounds like a thermal shut down switch was tripped. In plain English that means it probably overheated. Was it on your bed or your lap. There is only one small vent that draws air in and one that exhausts it. If these a covered the laptop will get hot very fast shut down to prevent further damage. You should also use a can of compressed air to blow those vents out on a regular basis to prevent blockage.

Make sure your Notebook is not overheat if it is then you have to make sure the fan is working and have to work on the NB by placing it on a hard surface and also BIOS update will also help to resolve the issue.

if in case the notebook is not overheating boot to BIOS screen and check if the Notebook turns off by itself in bios if it does then its a hardware issue and you need to contact manufacturer to service the notebook
