Hello,

I propose two solutions :-
1) Just format your machine once and install the OS again. Observe if it is behaving same.
2) If yes then you need to replace your Cooling FAN.

Hp laptop won't shutdown


Could you be a bit more specific? Could you tell me the correct sequence you spoke of? I am trying to understand , you shut down using the windows 7 shut down and it re starts? Your response didn't clear up my confusion. I can remember ever encountering this. Just a thought have you done a Maleware scan lately? If not try MALWAREBYTES found at : http://www.filehippo.com/download_malwarebytes_anti_malware/Install and Run a FULL SCAN and a program CCLEANER found at : http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/ Install and Run, it's a good program to clean the junk files out and speed up you system. That a good place to start.

Before you do anything run a full virus scan on your system, sometimes viruses and trojans will give you messages saying mean and nasty things are about to happen. make sure your scan includes everything. it might take awhile but well worth it. if nothing comes of this then you might be in for a major shut down.

Compaq CQ 60 laptop overheats and then shuts down. Is this a fan fault?


no. Its is the fault of the processor. It is releasing more heat than it should. Get an external fan for your laptop and things will be normal again.

I have a compaq presario CQ50-215NR notebook PC, and after a couple of hours of watching videos, the screen goes blank, and nothing can function, although the power is still on. What is causing this?


The most likely culprit is heat. When a laptop overheats, it shuts down to protect itself.
Buy an inexpensive cooling pad at Stuff-Mart or a computer store or simply slide a paperback book under the back edge so that air can circulate under the machine.

My laptop keeps gettin shut in between


Well some times if your processor gets on heat, it might turn off,s o i will suggest you to keep you laptop on a glass table and than use it, and you an try in safe mode as well and check if it works fine there ot not, if it wrks fine there than that means there might be some virsues or something or some thrid oarty software conflict.

Yu can check event viewer there you can find the exact cause for your shut down.

Compaq Presario F700 Laptop power up issue


Remove your cpu/gpu heatsink, apply a ermal bonding, this will prevent shut off because of cpu/gpu overheating(chipset detects temperature faulty in the firsts seconds of operating your laptop), if this didnt resolve your problem, naybe and issue with your Mobo.

System unstable


This could be a couple of things, the shutdown will probably be because of the overheating, check for blockage around fan extraction area. The other could be that there is a virus or spyware running, taking over the processors work and causing a shut down or overheat error, check for both. The other could be a driver conflict, try doing a system restore to before the problem started.
