Thermal event issue


Overheating When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are clogged with dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed air to do this.

CPU fan failure causes system to aromatically shut down..


Without a proper working cpu fan the cpu will overheat and shut the computer down... if not fry the cpu. You will need to replace the cpu fan and hope the overheating didn't mess up the cpu or something on the motherboard.

DO I NEED A NEW MOTHERBOARD, MY COMPUTER KEEPS SWITCHING OFF RANDOMLY?


Hello,
usually the computer switching off randomly can be caused by overheating issues. Make sure the cooling fan over the CPU is working, if not you'll have to replace it. You can use compressed air to blow away any dust accumulated into the computer, to ensure maximum cooling efficiency. Another culprit could be the power supply unit (PSU) and you should try replace that (costs less than a new motherboard). If you specify what kind of computer (desktop, notebook) you have and the model I can be more specific. Let me know if this helps you, bye

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.

My dell inspiron 1525 keeps turning off and shutting down without me doing anything. why?


The computer has a cpu fan that can get dirty over time. It's job is to keep the cpu cool. When the cpu overheats, the computer senses it and shuts it down immediately, to prevent permanent damage to the cpu. You can clean it by blowing compressed air into it, and should do that every few months, as routine maintenance. This is the most common thing that shuts a laptop down, other problems involve repair, so try this first. I bough a $7 three inch fan at Walmart to help cool the laptop, and when I run it, I never have it shut down on me, but once in awhile it will without the fan, especially when I play dvds or videos, which really work th' heck out of the cpu. There are also commercial laptop cooling devices, but my little fan works just fine. Hope this helps.

Shut down itself


Hi i'm Rain.
If your Laptop is over heating you may need to look into a stronger type of cooling system { Fan }
But for now lets set up your power Options settings
to try to keep your CPU cool.
In power options select Power Saver.
If you see the selection to keep the fan running select it also. save and exit.
Hopefully this will help to keep your system cool until you can service it.

System fan


you may have less fans than possible readings. That 0 rpm fan may be absent and so it is not the problem.
