Have you scanned your computer? cec_main.exe is a windows component that detects computer errors. BUT!!!! this component might be a malware. These windows component are often copied by malwares so they cannot be detected as viruses. First thing you need to do is run a virus scan and get rid of that error...

Notebook Crashes to PowerOff state when lid is closed


Running intense program with the lid closed will cause a sharp rise in temperature making the laptop hotter than it should be leading it into a shutdown. The second issue, windows should be shutdown properly rather than closing the lid, this makes the operational system unstable and will cause files to corrupt eventually.

How to fix unexpected shutdown due to Blue screen problem of Pavilion HDX9494NR


See if the Check disk utility will solve your problem. To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

Why does my computer keep shutting down unexpectedly


One thing it could be is windows update.

Windows update can be frustrating and will download windows components in the background. To complete update windows will shutdown or restart the computer sometimes even without telling you. If this is the case after the shutdown, when you start back up you'll get a notification stating "Windows installed new updates" . You can turn off automatic updates. In Windows 7 go to control panel->Windows update->Change settings and select "Download updates but let me choose whether to install them".
However it may also be that your computer is overheating. I had a Laptop that would overheat when on fabric or even a hard surface. There are two solutions to this; you can buy a laptop cooling pad that plug into a USB port. Or you can clean out the dust. You don't necessarily have to disassemble the computer to do this either, buy some canned air from a retail store that sells it such as Kmart. Then find the vent areas on your computer and used the canned air on the vents. this will blow dust out and cool down components (just don't use it because the air can get icy and so can the can).
Hope this helps! :)

Computer shuts down by itself


There can be many reasons of unexpected shut down of your system.Below are some remedies to solve it

1
Run an anti-spy ware and anti-virus utility to make sure that the shutdowns aren't being caused by a malicious program. If the shutdowns are infrequent, install a CPU temperature monitor utility to keep track of the CPU's temperature. If the CPU is overheating, or the shutdowns are frequent, then you will need to troubleshoot your computer's internal components.

2
Check any recently installed internal components to ensure that they are properly connected to the computer's motherboard. Make sure any new expansion cards or memory modules are securely seated in their slots, and ensure that the power and data cables are properly connected to any new drives.

3
Check for large dust buildups on your CPU fan. If the fan isn't effectively cooling your CPU, the overheating CPU will cause your computer to power off. Carefully pick away large pieces of dust with your fingers, and then spray the CPU fan with a can of compressed air to remove the rest of the dust.

4
Reapply the heat sink compound between the CPU and heat sink if the computer continues to turn off unexpectedly. Heat sink compound is a pasty substance that fills the space between the heat sink and processor, which increases the heat sink's ability to absorb heat from the CPU. But worn heat sink compound won't properly redirect heat away from the CPU. Power down your computer, disconnect its power cables and open the case. Unplug the CPU fan's power cable from the motherboard, remove the heat sink and fan combination from the CPU, and then apply the heat sink compound to the CPU--refer to your product manuals for details on reapplying heat sink compound.

Thanks .
Have a great day.

Displays sys error session manager initialization terminated unexpectedly status of 0xc00026c (0x00000000 0x00000000)


smss.exe is the process that manages sessions in Windows Computer. This is the session manager subsystem, which is responsible for starting the user session. This process is initiated by the main system thread and is responsible for various activities, including launching the Winlogon and Win32 (Csrss.exe) processes, and setting system variables. After it has launched these processes, it waits for either Winlogon or Csrss to end. If this happens normally, the system shuts down; if it happens unexpectedly, smss.exe causes the system to stop responding (hang).

In this case, I suggest that you start the "smss.exe" process manually from the Task Manager. You can press the "Ctrl+Shift+Esc" together to display the Task Manger window. Then, click on the Applications tab then the "new task" tab located at the bottom. In the New task dialog box, please type "smss.exe" and click OK.

However, you can also perform System Restore to restore the Windows System files to the time when it operated normally. Performing System restore will not delete any saved data however, all the installed programs after the selected restored point will be unistalled and require to reinstall them.

Unexpected shutdown


Could very well be a heat problem. You may have an accumulation of dust and dirt inside your laptop case. Laptops don't have much room for air circulation and even a small amount of dust and dirt buildup can cause random shutdowns to keep the motherboard from overheating. Using some compressed air in a can, blow out all of the dust and see if that helps. You may need to take it to a computer repair shop to have them open up the case and give it a good cleaning. They will be able to wipe all the fan blades clean and help with other dust areas. I don't recommend you trying to open the laptop case by yourself because it can be extremely tricky and something might get broken. Hope this helps.
