Good day.
You haven't mention how old is your laptop. Laptop battery operating hours diminished as it gets old. This is just normal for the type of battery being used in our laptop (also in cellular phones). If your laptop is really that old, there is a need to buy a new battery pack, Just be sure of the brand/model before your buy.
In some cases, the cause of your problem is in the charger or the charging mechanism. You may test your charger/adapter using voltmeter for the actual voltage reading and comparing this to the rating stated in the outer case of the adapter. If you observed a discrepancy in the reading, then buy new adapter.

Just let me know if you need some more help.
Good luck.

Why isMy Acer aspire gettting really hot, would replacing the battery help?


Sometimes, the computer gets really hot because the "ventilation" (cooling) system (fan, etc.) is not working properly. Normally, if it gets too hot, i.e. to an unacceptable level, the system will shut down. Or, it will catch on fire.
Yes, it's known that some battery will get too hot ... and potentially damage the system. So, if you already know that the cooling system is working properly, then try replacing the battery.

Laptop crasc. no error report


Maybe it is overheating and it shuts down so that it does not damage the motherboard.

Three things that will cause a laptop to overheat.
1) Dust - Dust inside the computer, dust clogging the vents, dust around the fans, cpu and heat sink. Remedy - The best remedy is to take the laptop apart and blow the dust out with a can of compressed air. If you don't take it apart you could blow out the vents with a can of compressed air and it might work, but you will be blowing the dust inside.

2) A Fan not working. The laptop will have to be taken apart to replace the fan.

3) The Thermal Paste around the heat sink and cpu had dried up or is too thin to keep the unit cool. Take the laptop apart and apply a fresh coat of thermal paste around the cpu and heat sink.

One sure sign of overheating is that if you immediately try to power the laptop back up, it will not boot. But if you wait awhile and let it cool off then try to boot it up, you can boot successfully until it gets hot and shuts off.

You could also try a Cooling Pad that plugs into the usb port and the laptop sits on it. It has fans to keep the laptop cool. The pad can be purchased for under $20. Try Tiger Direct at:
http://www.tigerdirect.com

When the site comes up just type in the search box at the top: Laptop Cooling Pad. When the search results come back sort them by Price Low to High and you will see them starting at $5.99 or so.

I like the one below for $12.99

Your computer sounds like it is overheating. Make sure the area where the fan blows the hot air out of is not obstructed, if there is a colder room in at your location try moving there. If your problem persists you may want to invest in a laptop cooling pad which is basically just a platform with additional fans to cool your machine. If you don't want to buy one you can just set up a normal fan to blow on your computer.

My sony vaio VGN-AW41ZF keeps turning off by itself. It doesnt shut down, just cuts off as if there is no power but the battery is fully charged and plugged in. Could this be an overheating problem?


I have a Sony VAIO GRS170/GRS175 in use almost every day since 2003. It used to turn off regularly during hot summer days even with its battery fully charged and plugged in. The problem was eliminated by using a small fan to blow air at its side where the air intake was located. Later, the fan was replaced with a notebook cooling pad which was more convenient. You could first try using a fan to see if it makes any difference. If you don't get anymore shut downs, then the problem is definitely due to overheating. You could then replace the fan with a notebook cooling pad.

Running very hot and shutting down


You are running into a CPU overheat issue.
1. can you feel or hear the cooling fan come on at all? If so try and use compressed air can to clean it out.. they get tremendously dirty. You can also try a vacuum hose, but cover nozzle with hand and only hold next to cooling fan outlet and nowehre else with laptop off and unplugged. Dont get near keys or other parts as will damage. Dont use SHOP VAC either.

2. If Cooling fan is NOT Coming on you can try a laptop cooling pad. these are external units by Targus and other companies that have cooling fans to supplement a laptop units cooling fan. You can try this to see if airflow is your problem.

3. If you recently ran encryption software, a new antivirus program, or upgraded to Windows 7 it is possible that your culprit is the unit is not cycling. Meaning the hard drive is continuously being accessed and the CPU is in constant service... this can cause overheating as well.

Overheats and freezes


Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC power.
Remove the battery.
Buy a can of compressed-air.
Give the computer a "blow-job", because dust inside the computer is working as a layer of insulation, i.e., not allowing your computer's fans to cool itself.

Toshiba Satellite P305 shut down and won't start


Sounds to me simply like an overheating issue within the machine, try setting it near a fan and/or open the back compartment doors (with the machine OFF and battery packed removed) for an hour or so and then re-attach the compartment doors and try to power on the machine. Overheating within the system can seem nonexistent outside the machine but be stinging hot deep in the compartments. Simple answer, LET IT COOL OFF, could be hours, a day, or a week before it starts up again but don't panic yet. I had a laptop in the past that did numerous times.
