    When you say screen, do you mean just the screen or the whole laptop. Also which operating system are you using?

The CPU is overheating due to dust getting in the fan and heatsink area. Turn off the laptop, and with compressed air, blow out the vents in the bottom and on the left side. This needs to be done periodically, just good maintenance.

Thank you for your response....I'm using Vista and the power seems to be on but the screen is down. I have to hold the power button down for 10 seconds to shut down then turn it back on to restore the computer. It is a Toshiba A215-S5818

My Acer z5600 just shuts off while I'm doing something without any notice.I gets very hot at the top of the screen and then shuts off without warning.The screen just goes black and I can not turn


Your processor is overheating. Or the fan for the CPU is dead or the way to eject the warm air is blocked. Try to work with your laptop on a table, if the problem persists, is the fan other way you have to work everytime on the table.

Hi, My Acer aspire 5332 keeps shutting down with no warning, I have rebooted approx 7 times each time it will shut itself down.


Have you checked the battery condition indicatot on the lower right hand side of the screen? It may be low and telling the laptop to shut dow.
Hope this helps.

My laptop shut down after powering out with no warning and will not restart.... Toshiba L550 screen stays black but when I hit the enter key it beeps........any suggestions


“My Toshiba laptop suddenly shuts down by itself without any warning. Sometimes it works fine for hours, sometimes it shuts down in 10-15 minutes.” This complaint we hear from our customers over and over again. About 15-20% of all Toshiba laptops we get for repair, suffer from an overheating problem. Yep, OVERHEATING!
This is one of the most common problems with Toshiba laptops we deal with.
Indications of laptop overheating problem:
  1. The keyboard and the bottom of your laptop are very hot when the laptop is working.
  2. The CPU fans are working all the time at maximum rotation speed and operate much louder than before.
  3. The laptop suddenly shuts down by itself without warning. When it just started, the laptop was shutting down after 1-2 hours and how it shuts down after 5-10 minutes of operation.
  4. The laptop works fine when it runs idle, but shuts down as soon as you start using any memory demanding applications (DVD player, image editing software, video editing software, etc.).

Solution:
If the CPU heatsink is not clogged with dust and lint completely, you can use canned air and just blow it inside the laptop through the openings on the bottom and on the sides. It’s nice as a precaution measure, but it might not work if your laptop already has a problem and the heatsink is completely clogged.
  1. Open the laptop case, so you can access the CPU fan and the heatsink. In some cases you can access the heatsink through the latch on the bottom of the laptop. Sometimes (for example Toshiba Satellite A70/A75) you have to open the laptop case all the way down.
  2. Carefully disconnect the fan cables on the system board and remove the fan. If the fan makes unusual sound when it spins (grinding sound), I would recommend to replace the fan.
  3. Clean the fan and the heatsink with compressed air.
  4. I would also recommend removing old thermal grease from the CPU and applying new grease for better heat conductivity.

White Screen - Unable to See Desktop GUI.


Two separate problems, sounded like..

White screen? If external video is okay then it's likely (1) a bad screen, or (2) a disconnected video cable.

If the system shuts down, I'd check the fan - if the fan is reasonably clean and running, then it's probably a bad motherboard.

The touch screen does not work. what can be done?


Are you using a screen protector? Because, in the manual, it warns that any screen protector used, will reduce the touch screen's sensitivity. But if the touch screen doesn't react at all, then it means that it's broken.

You might want to go to LG's website for support. :)
