This Acer with a cooling fan keeps shutting down, why?


If the fan is blocked or not blowing hot air out at a good speed when warm, clean the radiator and fan to stop it overheating.

Open Control Panel, Power Options, set High Performance, Change Plan settings, Change Advanced Power settings, set Sleep and Hibernate to Never, Adjust Advanced settings to your preference. You didn't post the "message" you get 3-4 times? Shut down the Laptop when not in use, your laptop will last longer, and unplug to prevent Surge, and overheating damage. Not to mention the fan sucking dust into the machine that requires you to keep cleaning.

Unexpected Shut down


Most probably that overheating is the cause of this. You might wanna buy a cooling pad and see if there will be any changes.

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.

Keeps shutting off even though battery is charged?


When was the last time your system was cleaned? Physical debris and dust accumulates in the vents of the internal fans of some of the laptops we repair. The overheating will cause the laptops to shut down withing minutes (seconds sometimes) of turning on the system.

Once the system was cleaned, everything was fine.

Good luck

My laptop keeps shutting down at random times. I


Computers may not be smarter than people, but if they’re designed properly, they will shut themselves down before overheating to the extent that they do themselves damage.

If the smart person keeps turning the notebook back on and figures out a way to foil the protection, the laptop is probably doomed. Once a laptop shuts down for thermal event protection, it may refuse to power back up for a fixed period of time, five or ten minutes, or it may begin to boot and shut down immediately as soon as it boots to the point that it can figure out that its too hot.

The over-temperature protection is generally a BIOS rather than an operating system function, so one sign of an overheated laptop is one that shuts itself down while you’re using it and then refuses to boot as far as the operating system unless you leave it alone for an hour or so to cool down.

Unless you’ve been working in a very unfriendly environment, high temperatures, direct sunlight, etc, you should take even a single overheating shutdown as a warning to back up your data at the first opportunity and to give the cooling system a serious cleaning.
Good luck

My Toshiba m205 4806 shuts down spontaneously. The lap top feels warm but the fan is running. any suggestions?


The cpu get overheated and will shtdown to protect it. The fan continues to run until a CPU safe temperature is reached / sustained.

1. Use laptop on flat surface, not on pillow, carpet, bed, etc. that will restrict air flow. Using a can of compressed air, clear the air vents.

2. If the symptom continues, then the heat conductive paste between the cpu chip and the heatsink is no longer effective (hardened, too thin, etc.). Remove the heatsink and add thermal paste

Did you noticed overheating (hot laptop areas, fans spinning like in crazy?)
Can you start the laptop again just after it shuts down itself??

Acer Aspire 9300-3655: Shuts Downs When Idle


does it just shut down randomly? and then when you turn it back on it shuts down nearly straight away? if so then it sounds like the processor is overheating and as a saftey mechanism it shuts down. which could be a big problem.

or you just need a new battery. because you are supposed to only charge it when it is dead. if you keep it on charge and plug it into the mains randomly,then the battery will eventually lose it capacitence (basically how much charge it can hold) and then it wont last long atall. you want to hope its the battery.

hope this helps.
