Had a similar problem. Whenever I played then it would after just freeze and shutdown. Was also getting really hot. The solution was real simple:

At the rear left corner of my 7720 is the heat exhaust vent. Right next to it is the power supply socket. The end of the power cable (jack end) had a large plastic casing around it, larger than a AA battery. Because of how the laptop was set up on my desk this casing around the cable lay right against the exhaust vent and stopped the hot air from escaping. All I did was turn the power cable so it faced right instead of left and, hey presto, all was sorted.

Hello


I understand that your notebook heating up and restarts automatically.

The issue might be with the Fan of your notebook or Hard Drive .

To isolate the issue please perform hard drive self test. This will display whether your notebook hard drive is good or have gone bad. If the hard drive self test result is bad/fail. Then, I am afraid that you need to replace hard drive of your notebook.

To perform Hard Drive self test, here are the steps.

1. Restart the notebook.
2. Tap the F10 key as soon as the HP logo appears.
3. Using the arrow keys, navigate to Dignostics Menu and start the Hard Drive self test.
4. Once finished, navigate to Exit Menu, select "Exit Discarding Changes".
If you are using XP operating system in your notebook. Then in the 3rd steps navigate to Tools instead of Diagnostics.

If you find the above information is useful then please rate me.

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.

Inspiron 6000 powers off by itself


It could be that your laptop is overheating. Most computers have a heat sensor that will shut down the system when it starts to get to hot. Next time it shuts down, check to see how hot the air coming out of the fans on the laptop is. If the problem is overheating, be sure that you always have it sitting on an area that allows the fans to push the hot air out of the laptop. If it still overheats, you may want to get a can of compressed air to clean out the fan itself.
Hope this helps.

My laptop turns itself of after 8 minutes - every time i turn my laptop on it lasts for about 8 minutes then turns itself off automatically how do i stop this? My HP laptop keeps shutting itself off after...


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.

Overheat?


It sounds like an overheating problem. When it is booted, does it run ok other than just being slow? Check your cooling fan and make sure it is running and not stopped up. That is a number one symtom of overheating is freezing and rebooting by itself. There is a free program called "Motherboard Monitor 5" that will monitor the temp for you and set off an alarm when it is getting to hot. Check that problem first. Hopes this helps!
