This could be a sign that your laptop is overheating. If you touch the laptop while it is running & you find it too hot, make sure that the fan is running properly & that the air ways are not blocked.
You can blow compressed air into the cooling vents of the fan. If you notice clouds of dust coming out, then it might be a good idea to disassemble the laptop, clean the fan & air ways, & reassemble it back. If the fan has failed & is no longer running, it might need to be replaced.

If none of this solves the problem, or is not the case, then you might have a bad motherboard.

PS3 WHEN CONSOLE SWITCHED ON IT BEEPS THEN TURNS OFF AND FLASHES RED


My guess is its going to die soon. I would back up most of your stuff on a hard drive if possible. If it gets that far. I had this happen to my 40GB PS3 about a year ago. It turned on for 5 minutes then off. Soon after that it didn't turn on. And it was making really loud fan noises.
What are the specs of your PS3 and was it making loud fan noises before? Consider buying a new PS3 slim?
A quick guess that i just thought is try doing the fan test before turning it on. Turn Off PS3 completely (switch in back) Hold eject button and Turn on switch.

NOTE: This is dangerous and can harm the PS3.


Good Luck

Screen shuts off


this happens when the processor gets over heated.--- normally the speed of the fan that cools the processor decreases due to dust in it.just clean the processor fan and apply a air blower with full pressure on it to remove all the dust.this will help.

This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya.

It doesn't boot up


Shoot it... Or give a little more information... ^.^.
USUALLY, this is power supply related. If a PS is not working, or not working correctly, your machine will fail to start. If you hear fans and see yellow lights, but no green lights, that usually means the Power supply's CPU-power is not working within acceptable limits. If there are no lights and fans whatsoever, that usually means the ps is toast. But, just to be sure, make certain that the little red switch on the back is set to 115 instead of 230.
If you see a start-up screen (something that says SONY or VIAO when you turn it on) that means that you could have a faulty hard drive, or faulty memory. Your best option is call Sony or let a pc tech give it a look-see. Without more information, I can only make general suggestions.
If you DO decide to shoot it, make sure you do it ONLY during computer-hunting season, and make sure you have a license to hunt computers. ^.^
