Overheating is due to the fan not working properly. You need to check the fan connection and clean the fan. I've seen fans stop due to dust buildup, or even a hair wound in them. After cleaning, if the fan doesn't work properly and it's still overheating you will need to replace the fan. Keep in mind that overheating can cause serious and expensive problem, it needs to be fixed ASAP.

TOSHIBA Satellite A665-S6065 fan issues


The fan is probably going bad and will stop one day. Once the fan stops your computer will shut down due to overheating. Keep an eye on it.

My acer laptop keeps closing down/ Any ideas or ways to resolve it


Laptops sometimes shut down to protect your hardware. If the fan has stopped working for example it may be overheating. Is the bottom of your laptop hot?

My Gateway computer shuts down ramdomly. This


Listen for fans coming on, as this sounds like overheating issue. If fans kick in and then stay constant or dont work at all.
The link is for Notebook hardware control, this will monitor the temp among other things (only reference as a guide any software can give you an indication but not exact temp) Generally if a laptop hits 90c it will auto cutout to stop major hardware failure normal running temp (40-55c upwards depending on use) http://www.pbus-167.com/
If the machine is overheating it could be due to blocked vents, faulty heatsink, fans not working or incorrect fitting and thermal paste.
In all honesty if this is due to overheat problems, as the machine has been cutting out my strong advice would be to do all the above ESPECIALLY re-apply thermal paste (arctic silver5) to cpu, it takes about 100-200 hours of use to start to work 100%.
hope this helps, let me know if i can be of further help

My HP Pavillion DV100 notebook shuts down whenever it feels like. What could be causing this.It is 3 years old now so off warranty. It will work just fine for a little while and then voila! shut down.


Sounds like classic overheating, check your power supply fan, or the fan of your heat sync that seats over your CPU as well as the heat resistant insulation thermal lubricant that's there to keep it cool.

When fans starts to go the bears or motor starts to stick and will intermittently stop. When when it goes altogether it ceases to turn and can cause serious overheating damage to your circuitry.

Dell shut down automaticly can someone help


Sounds like the laptop is shutting down as a safety feature from overheating. Look to see if the fan is running underneath the laptop/notebook. It's possible that the fan is defective. If not, are you blocking the vents? Make sure this is room for air to circulate.

If it's not the overheating issue, do you have the power management system software set to hibernate? Maybe it is shutting down at the time interval set.

Hope this helps.

Shut off after 5 minutes


sounds like overheating. could be the heatsink on the cpu needs to be cleaned and re sat with new grease or a fan has stopped or is blocked. I would take apart the CPU housing and fan and check it all or take it to a local shop or send it to us www.qualit-uk.com/laptop-repair.htm
