Normal 0 When a CPU chip overheats it shuts down (thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this problem is not fixed, then eventually the CPU chip will fail. This fault is either a faulty fan or the fan and heat sink assembly is clogged with dust. Please click on this link and follow my instructions to fix :-

I have a Toshiba satelite p105-s9337 the laptop will start up and after 10min it will shut off. I cannot start it again for about 1 hour and the cycle is repeated. I can take the batter out and the problem...


That sounds like a heat issue. Open the back panels and you will see the fan, turn on the laptop and see if the fan spins. If it does, its usually clogged. You will need to pull out the fan assembly and peel off the fluff that isn't visible on the end of the copper heatsink.

Once reassembled, the laptop may run much better. You can buy a laptop stand that assists the fans by blowing cool air inside.

You may find blowing out the dust with a can of air, or from an air hose or tyre inflater at your local garage.

Possible causes of the problem:
-
System overheating

Solutions:

- Check your computer if the fan is properly working.
- Scan your computer for viruses
- Check your computer power supply by a qualified technician
- Reinstall your computer operating system

Try this also:

From the run box you can type shutdown -a and that should stop it from shutting down long enough for you to fix the problem.You need to look up how to remove msblast from your computer.

Toshiba satellite a205-S5847 cuts off while working


You could have an overheating problem, The CPU shuts down when it overheats and the laptop won't bootup until the CPU has cooled down.
The overheating problems are caused by a faulty fan or the heatsink/fan assembly is clogged with dust which prevents proper cooling.
Check the fan to see it it spins freely, if not (it has a bearing problem) then replace the fan. Also remove and vacuum the dust off the fan and heatsink.

Toshiba A65-S1062 - This laptop overheats and shuts down.


I bet that you had your laptop on all the time.
Your heat sink is saturated with dust and grit.
you may have to open up the unit and use a can of dust remover to clean the fins on the heat sink out. it is causing your CPU to shut down bucause it is becoming overheated.
Happy Fixing =)

When i play sims 2 it always hang then my pc will shut down automatically. the spec of the games are compatible to my loptop what will i do?


There is a problem of overheating. Maybe the specs are almost exactly the same as the game requirements. So the PC still has to work hard. This causes overheating, which should not happen if it is even perfectly compatible.

So, this means that something is causing the computer to overheat. Firstly, shut down any open background programs. Also, see that the laptop vents are not blocked by any thing around. Remember to dust the heatsinks, fans and the casing. Also, the keyboard and main vents. If you can, vacuum it all and open up the casing to be sure that all the gunk is out.
