Hi, Lucas

You may have a RAM chip issue or at worst a motherboard problem. On the Microsoft website, they offer a memory test tool that you can download and run to test the RAM in your laptop. If you have a way of checking your RAM chips on another laptop you can use this method as an alternative to the memory test.

Let us know the outcome.

Shortly after I turn my computer it turns off


How long is shortly? If it runs and brings up the Windows Desktop and you are allowed to work for 10 minutes or longer then it shuts down, most likely the laptop is overheating. One way to tell if it is overheating is to immediately try to turn it back on after it shuts off. If it will not boot back up, it's overheating. If you let it sit and cool off for a while, then try to boot it back up and it does it successfully, it's overheating.Causes of Overheating:1) Dust all inside the computer. Fans clogged with dust, dust around the vents.2) Fan not working3) The Thermal Past around the CPU has dried up or is too thin the keep the unit cool.When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous.

Hi, I have a laptop Compaq A945 US with Windows 7 installed in it. I am facing a serious problem these days as my laptop shut down automatically while doing my work. It happens after 10-15 min on first...


dear..
i think you should re-install your laptop, maybe the system has an error because some files are missing, it can be happens because of viruses, to re- format your os you can click one time restore..just turn on or reboot your laptop and quickly press f11 button on your keyboard, but no data will save when you do this, so you need to back up your data first, so you don't lose your work..
if one click restore couldn't be done, you need to prepare a bootable windows cd. to install windows from cd you need to change your boot set up, press f1 when you turn on your laptop, go to boot menu change your first boot to cd room and the second boot to hard drive, enter the windows cd, press save and exit, when appear a message "boot from cd or dvd" quickly press any key, then you can follow the instruction that appears on your screen..

My HP pavillion dv7 keeps shutting down. I'm trying to run a system recovery back to the factory settings. It got up to 51% done and then the laptop shut off. Subsequent attempts at booting it back up...


Be sure that the laptop is plugged in to the power supply before you start! Are you restoring from an image in the machine or a CD or DVD disk?


Either way this takes quite a while and most manufactures warn you that the machine will reboot a few times (I have seen some take 5 reboots) to complete the task, so be patient.


The last part of your question concerns me. If you power cycled the computer (turned it off then on) half way through the process it could be hard crashed. If you have the CD or DVD dish this would not be a big problem but if you are restoring from an image this could be bad. Let us know.

Blank screen when powered on.


Do you have any CD’s that came with your laptop? If so, look for one that has “Diagnostics and utilities” listed under the “Contents”. To boot from that CD disk, power on your laptop and tap the <F12> key to bring you to the “One time boot menu”. Insert the CD and then select CD/DVD drive and hit <Enter> key. You can also boot from the Windows reinstallation disk. If the computer boots from either CD, then your Operating System is corrupted and needs to be reloaded.
