I have experienced similar problems. I found that if the fans were REALLY dirty, the system would overheat and shut down with no warning.

My Gateway 7405 randomly shuts down. It does not matter how long it has been running for. It has shutdown during bootup and after running for many hours. Just before it shutsdown the fan accelerates to...


You might try changing the Power Options (its in the Control Panel) Properties so that all windows are set to NEVER. That is, so that it will never automatically turn off monitor, hard disks or go to standby. Also turn off all the alarms. This worked for my Presario R3000 running WinXP Sp2 which would shut off for no apparent reason. Having said that, you should blow out your fan with compressed air occasionally. And check that your power cord is OK. When you pull out your power cord, the battery icon should show operation.

My r3000 has a tempermental power supply. it


whatabout the lead that plugs into the laptop ? does the plug in the laptop move easily, with the lead in, Sounds like the actual plug in the laptop is breaking away, the solder around the connector. Sadly to fix that you will have to get it repaired for about £50 to £70, maybe more ?? please make sure the lead from power supply is not loose or a bad fitting.

Your machine is overheating. Try cleaning the vents with a can of compressed air and making sure the heat sync is free of dust. If that doesn't work, you may need to replace the fans.
