If you are using XP, backup your data and try repairing the OS if it fails reinstall the OS.

My acer 5750 i7 keeps shutting down


The infected laptops encounter random shutdown problem until some maintenance activity is being performed on the system.


Two important things that you should do to fix a laptop which keeps shutting down are:


1- Scanning computer to eliminate malwares, spywares and the viruses from your laptop.


2- Repairing and cleaning Windows registry.


The registry errors, however, are the internal errors and can become a cause of system crashes and freezes.
For an instant fix use system utility tool Reginout.

Lately, my laptop (Winbook) has been overheating and shutting down. Any ideas?


3 possible causes for this:
  1. Bad Power Supply....heating up and shutting down
  2. Bad Motherboard...heats up and freezes
  3. Bad Heatsink/processor....fan/heatsink no longer keeping processor cool enough to operate shutting your machine down
If when the laptop overheats, it just shuts down and doesn't freeze or lock up, it's most likely the Power Supply. If it just freezes/locks up, its much more likely that the problem lies with the motherboard. Hope this helps with your laptop problem. Best of luck.

I was shutting down my toshiba laptop, its now frozen.


If nothing else works remove the battery, leave it for 5 mins then replace it and it will start as normal. Yyou will get an error message usually saying it was not shut down correctly and it may do a system scan but unless there is a real problem with it that will restart it. Ive had to do that twice with mine in the last year.

TV KEEPS SHUTTING OFF


It may be solder related, but it may be something such as aleaky diode causing secondary voltages to increase thereby shutting down your set for protective measures. I would recomend getting a service manual and some free support to help you diagnose this. You can get both at the following link.
