    My Averatec 3250HS had the problem that it seemed to get hot and then it would turn itself off. I also believe because of the increase in temperature. What I did was opened it up and then my son put silver compound between the CPU and the thermal element to make better thermal contact. They had separated and they were not making good contact. That solve the problem.
    The problem i have now is that I thought I would never need the CD and throw it away and now I dont have it and I need to reload the Windows OS and it is giving a hard time. Any help !! ??

Why does a LENOVO 3000 N100 laptop turn itself off after 2 minutes?


Check your power settings - your system may be set to time out after 2 minutes of inactivity. Also check the service manual for ideas - http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/42x3553_03.pdf

Computer turns on by itself


Some computers have an option in the BIOS or System Setup Menu to turn the laptop on at a particular time. It's a good feature for people who turn their laptops off at night because the first thing a computer does when you turn it on is to load all the startup software, then begin downloading and installing any updates it might have missed while it was turn off or start running a virus update or scan. That's why computer seem so slow when you first turn them on for about the first 10 to 20 minutes or so. So if I turn my computer off at night and I know my day gets started at 8:00am every morning, then I can set my computer to turn itself on every morning at 7:00am by itself. That way when I go to use it, it's good and fast.

Sounds like something to do with a power saving feature either from HP itself or from Windows. It could also be that for some reason your computer is overheating, which it than shuts itself off to protect the processor. I would try playing with your power saving features, and cleaning out the fans.

hi,
Please check for the exhaust,is it coming properly and check the bottom of the Notebook is it heating ?
If heating then this is the issue with the processor fan.
If the temprature is normal then check in BIOS(leave the system in BIOS mode for 8 minutes) if then also it is turning off surely this is the heating issue.
If above mentioned is not working please revert.

check whether the hiberbnate facility is on or off as it is turning off after 8 min or so.
this can also happen due to overheating of the processor , it can turn off itself automatically
try to increase the ram on the system
