Try blowing air into the cooling vents/fans; they might have dust in them

My dv9000 keeps shutting down randomly, I have a cooling fan underneath and it is not hot.


probably a bad sector in the hard drive. hat will cause your problem Hard drives are good for a 5 to 10 year average if used everyday. If the computer is switched off without going through the normal proceedures of shutting it down will decrease the life span as well

You should look for the following answers.
(1) Are you operating your laptop in a in a hot and dusty environment (If yes you should know that computers do not like hot and dusty environments and they shut down to avoid a complete burn out of the machine more over the dust particles also can destroy the hardware and block internal fan ventilation ducts in between the CPU and the fan).
(2) When the your laptop PC shuts down place your hand underneath the laptop and try to feel hot spots. If you find areas unusually heated then this is the main cause of the shut down.
(3) If just after the shut down and a good usage the Laptop is cool then underneath than overheating shut down might not be the case.
If you determined that heating is the cause and you cannot change your environment than you should look for other heavy duty laptops that are robustly designed for hot environments.
I do not think that resting the BIOS can cause this.

My computer is randomly shutting down. Sometimes it will work and other times it will not. I think the processor is overheating and causing it to unexpectedly shut down. the screen goes black, the power...


Few reason for the shut down
Could be heat, electrical,

1. try cleaning all vents with compress air in order to remore dust and fuzz that can be cloging the vents.
Once this done, verify that fans works proprelly,(check air flow coming out of vents) if they dont they will need to be replace or cleaned out.

2. Check power supply unit, and battery.
Sometime power supply unit is defective, getting too hot and power output is not stable and shuts down the laptop. ( change power supply unit) check if battery hold charge. if not change battery

3. Check connections for looseness and contact

If all seems normal,and none of the mentionned point seem to be defective, the cause is deeper and would need to be looked at by a technician.

Computer shutting down


  1. Be sure your power supply is working and charging battery
  2. Allow battery to full charge
  3. Be sure PC is cold not hot or warm
  4. check if before shutting down PC fan is starting: if not starting PC thermal protection can be triggered and your fan out of service.

Gets to hot and keeps shutting down


1. Check to make sure the air vents are dust free.
2. Check to make sure the fan is working.
3. If it is dust free and you can feel the fan working, then you may need to reapply new thermal compound between the heatsink and the cpu. This involves removing various components on the computer such as the power switch cover, the keyboard, and possibly the lcd screen.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.

Laptop shutting off


There might be a setting in the BIOS that shuts down the computer when the processor gets too hot. so, getting better cooling or turning off the setting will stop it. but, if you disable the setting, the Processor could overheat and explode.

My HP Pavalion dv1000 shutsdown automatically after some time


I had this same problem. I resolved it this way after many attempts. This seems very simple but it worked in my case and does make sense. I finally removed the black plastic trim piece on the back of the laptop that covers the adapter connector and connected the adapter directly to the receptical. I have never had the problem with it intermittently shutting down again. It appears that the trim piece was not allowing the proper connection between the adapter and the motherboard. Mine would usually power off within one minute and the battery would never completly charge. I know this sounds strange but it worked.
