When I turn the engine off the engine cooling fan stays on and does not shut off


depending on the engine temperature the fan is supposed to remain on after you turn the engine off, until the engine reaches a preset cooler temperature. when it reaches cooler temperature usually within 5 minutes or so it should cut off... if you cut it off and it is running 30 minutes later.. then there is a problem with the fan relay or temperature sending unit.

My laptop toshiba L300 series it turns off while booting in with charger plugged in but not in battery mode, why ?


OverheatingWhen the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the 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 with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.

Hi,
It seems that your windows has gone bad. I think you need to reformat your laptop. I hope you save all your file in other partitions and not in windows partition. You can use the recovery disk provided by Compaq to reformat your laptop or you can get one from them or any store nearby. Hope this will help.
Good luck ;)

My Sony Vaio laptop turns off constantly. It


When it is running I need to know if the air coming out of the vent slats is hot or just warm. It sounds like the laptop is overheating and shutting down so it doesn;t burn itself up. Get a can of compressed air they sell at office supplt companies and use short bursts of air in the vent slots and fan housing. If there is an access panel on the bottom that allows access to the processor and heatsink, blow that area out too. Then check the Sony support site and see if they have a BIOS update for that model computer. Some manufacturers are writing new BIOS instructions for their laptops for the fans to run longer and faster to take care of heat issues.

Hello, My HP Compaq 6720s is turned off and won?t start again, when I connect the charger it's turning on and of all the time until I disconnect the charger. When I try to turn on from the battery its jus...


When you say turning on and off all the time until I disconnect the charger, IS the charger running the machine and then after so long cutting out? you leave it and it works , if so its overheating

Machine will need fan and all ducts cleaning and most likely replace arctic silver on psu

IF on the other hand its not running more likely the charger is not powering the machine or charging battery in which case you will need new charger

hope this helps get back to me if you need more help

Laptop shuts OFF on it's own


Laptop fans DO NOT run constantly. They only turn on when booted up and once the laptop has reached a certain temperature. You should probably time how long for a shutdown, record your results. Let laptop cool for 10-15 between attempts. If it takes approximately same amount of time to shutdown between attempts it is very possible its overheating.
Other things like Viruses, software conflicts, and Harddrive problems can also be the culprit. take a look at the administrator event logs for any clue there. Event logs are in control panel under Administrator Tools.

I don't recommend trying to fix any overheating issue you may have, as that would entaiil disassembling your laptop. Unless you have a bit of experience in this, I would take it to a good repair shop.

Hope this helps you some. If so please rate my solution.

I sent my laptop to Toshiba and they said they removed the 3rd party memory I installed (although I tried this prior to shipping). I didn't reinstall the memory and now it works fine.
