My Sager laptop is running a program called VirtualDJ. This program runs videos. The computer's CPU is heating up to 95C in an hour and shutting down. How can I stop this. I had put a fan blowing air underneath the laptop and it still did not help. email partybz@aol.com

    Does it only heat up using this program or is the laptop overheating during normal usage too?

MY computer shuts itself off and then restarts, about once a day


You will need to check your event log in order to pin point where it is shutting down, thus solving the problem as it could be any number of things.

Computer shutting off


shutting off when? Shutting off immediately when you try to start it? Shutting off after it has run for a while?

If it is shutting off after it has run for a while, then it is probably running hot. If you try to restart it immediately it will not boot. If you let it cool off for a while then it will boot successfully (definitely a sign of running hot).

Things that make a computer run hot:
1) Dust in the vents, fans, cpu & heat sink and all inside the computer.
2) Fan not working
3) The Thermal Paste on the cpu and heat sink has either dried up or is too thin to keep it cool.

If it shuts down immediately after it has been sitting for a while then it's not running not and your system has some other problem.

I have a hp slimline 3100. the cpu fan runs fast everytime i open a program or play a cd. it speeds up the slows down. sometimes it runs really fast, then the computer shuts down. whats going on?


This is an indication of overheating within the PC. Open the PC case and clean all the air vents. Take the heatsink and fan off the CPU and give it them a good clean. Put the heatsink and fan back on to the CPU and start up the PC. check that the fan on the heatsink is running smoothly.
Also, make sure the vents on the power supply are clear and the fan on the power supply runs well.
If you go into the BIOS setup, you may be able to monitor the fan and the CPU temperature.

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.

The fan on the motherboard runs at full force constantly. Any ideas?


This is a common problem for Gateway. The first thing to do is shut the computer down and blow out the dust from the processor heatsink and other areas that it is heavily collected. Then go to the Gateway website and download the latest firmware for your computer. They constantly have fan issues. These are almost always addressed in firmware updates from the manufacturer website.

My acer ast135-u-s3302 was shutting down due to what seem to be overheating issues. This would occur when the cpu temperature reading was indicating 96-97 degrees celcius, sometimes immediately after...


This is WAY TOO HOT. It looks like you need a new CPU, since you can't really straighten those tiny pins. AMD chips run hot, but no where near 95C. They should not run higher than about 55C.

RE HP Pavillion ZE4800 Laptop When I switch on I here the fan start, the lights come on then it appears to shut down and re attempt to start again This occurs over and over and the PC never boots fully....


I have same notebook and similiar problem. Mine runs for 30 min then shuts off completely in like 20 seconds. I added a $10 usb powered laptop cooler pad and bingo, runs now for hours no problem. On all computers I know the cpu heat temperature has a threshold, if it goes too high it will shut off. I think my fan doesn't kick on fast enough to lower the temperature and cool the processor. On yours it may be a fan that doesn't work or is working at the wrong time and the circuit shuts off the system. Shouldn't be terribly expensive maybe $60 to repair from a good technician..good luck

Laptop shuts off after powered on omnibook 6000 It runs for a few seconds and shuts down .... it that a bad power supply or what?


You might have a broken or dirty CPU fan. The CPU heat sink fan is responsible to cool down your CPU while it is on. If it is broken or stuck(dirty), then your machine will power off automatically preventing CPU damage or worse-case-scenario:FIRE caused by "burnout".

Your CPU heat sink might not be mounted on your LT properly. Also causing overheating; thus shutting down.

Its a laptop right ? Right! Another thing you could try is to unplug the battery, and let it run from AC power only and see if it makes any difference.

Fans run all the time


How many HDDs/internal devices are you running off *********** board? If you have an AMD processor, they tend to run hot too. If your computer is running agonizingly slow or shutting down by itself, I would suggest you do the following:

Take your heat sink off your CPU and clean off the heat sink paste and re-applying. If you haven't done this before, you only need to put it on in a VERY light film so you can partly see through it. Applying too much can cause over heating.
