First of all , try to cleaning the vents,the heatsink and the fan areas. you can use airbush or aircompressor or even a can of compressed air. after this you can try to power on. if it continues to shut off , then try replacing the ram with good working sticks. try that first and send a post of hot it goes.

try replacing the thermal grease on your cpu.
the BIOS have a protection that restart or shut down the computer/laptop when the cpu get to hot.
You can also check if the power suply is working in parameters

A common problem with all laptop is dust. Sounds like you have 5 years worth of dust stuck in there. You should get a can of compressed air and blow though every vent you can! You want to loosen the dust that's in there and possibly try to blow it out and/or get it closest to the vents.

After that you should take a vaacum cleaner and **** out all the dust you can!

Dust inhibits air flow, alot! Its the number 1 killer of old computers.

Sorry you are having troule. It sounds as if it is getting hot and protecting itself. Games are very cpu intensive and this causes heat. The cheap fix is an under cooler. This is a cooler the laptop sits on. I have seen them at Best Buy for under $20

Laptop keeps on shutting down unexpectedley


If it shuts down randomly then you may have a virus. If you notice that it only shuts down when you hold it in your lap or on the bed then it means that it is overheating and you need to let air circulate in the area of the cooling fan. Also, if you recently "looked inside" the laptop and your forgot to put back a screw, that hardware device may disconnect itself and sending your laptop so a forced shutdown in order to protect itself.

My laptop keeps shutting off even thought it is fully charged and still being powered. I dont noe what is causing it to happen.


its sounds to me if the laptop keeps shutting itself down its because you are having overheat issues you may have a bad fan or heat sink which prevents the laptop from cooling itself if it is new you should take it back if not you may want to have it sent in for repair! hope this helps!

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.

Laptop keeps shutting itself off


Check the power settings - most laptops are set to sleep even if plugged in to AC power - go to Control Panel -> Power Options and check for sleep/shutdown settings under "Plugged In".

Sounds like something to do with a power saving feature either from HP itself or from Windows. It could also be that for some reason your computer is overheating, which it than shuts itself off to protect the processor. I would try playing with your power saving features, and cleaning out the fans.

The laptop will not start up


This sounds like a bad battery. If the battery has a short within it, it will cause the power system to shut down. Replace the battery and see if that works.
