Hi, the problem sounds to me like your CPU is overheating.
Have a look or have a technician look at the cooling fan and see if it is still working.
Most CPU's are set to shut down when over hot to prevent damage.

My hp 1630n keeps shutting down for no apparent reason. sometimes it goes all day then shuts down, sometimes for 10 mins. it isnt running hot either. replaced power supply with one that is 400w and it...


This might be an indication that a hardware is failing. go to BIOS and leave it turned on, see if it will still shut down randomly. If it does, then it is definitely a hardware problem. If it still under warranty, call HP for support. You can also visit HP Support Website for more info.
If it is hardware problem, try isolating it by re-seating the parts which has an integrated chip like RAM, VIDEO CARD and CPU. If you have two sticks of RAM, try each one without the other and see which one is failing. You can also switch to the integrated video if you have one to test the graphics card. Make sure you have the proper knowledge on how to handle these parts as this might cause damage on the computer and electric shock.

Had my c1630n for years and suddenly lately i have had it just turn off on me at different times. There are no errors showing in event viewer each time it does it. Sometimes it runs all day the shuts down...


Check the CPU fan's Heat sink whether it heats up such that you are unable to touch at the time of automatic shut down. If it is so then remove the fan and apply some Heat Sink Compound between the fan and processor, reattach the fan.

My computer volume was suddenly stop working while i was watching movie, i checked all volume set ups but didn't work so please solve that problem


1. Was this a movie that came from a video store or was this movie on the hard drive?
2. How old is your PC and or your DVD optical drive?
3. This could be due to a bad burn ( the movie that is)
Some movies that are burned sometimes are interrupted and therefore will create a "halt" state on some DVD players and some PC DVD burners.
4. Also dirty DVD's will halt a movie in progress the laser is try to read the data through multiple finger prints or grease
5. Washing the DVD with dish washing liquid ( a drop or 2) and the rinsing and drying thoroughly usually renders the DVD playable again. Do not use hot water on the DVD disk it will warp the disk.

I have a Compaq Presario SR5350F which suddenly has started shutting itself off after being on for about 5 minutes. I ran the test stuff and it didn't show anything wrong with the hard drive or processor....


First thing to do if you have not cleaned the inside of the computer is give it a good cleaning. There may be enough dust inside that it is overheating. Reply if that is not the problem.

Turns itself off & gets hot -don't think fan is kicking on


Since you do not hear the fan anymore I would start by opening up the case and seeing if power is going to the fan and make sure any connectors for it have not come loose. If the connectors are still hooked up chances are the fan is shot and needs to be replaced.

If you are not familiar with working around electronics and parts under power I would highly suggest you have some one who is familiar with this do it.

Double check your connections ( the cord between monitor and computer{usually has blue ends}, they always wiggle lose) . If that doesnt fix it, buy a new cord and check for video card updates.
