Whoa!

dude, just one thing- have you tried checking if your computer has the latest version of "TOSHIBA POWER SAVER" and if it was running???

That's the ONLY utility that can control the screen brightness, CPU fan speed, and processor usage.

What would cause my aspire 5630 to shut down sporadically?


Shut down sporadically, caused by rising temperatures on the processor (processor overheat). Processor overheat, caused by damage to the processor fan. Processor fan function to reduce the processor temperature.

Possibilities and solutions
1. The possibility of sluggish processor fan. Processor fan spins, with a low speed, so it can not reduce the processor temperature.
Solution: clean the processor fan with a vacuum cleaner, or replace the processor fan.
2. The possibility of fan processor die.
Solution: replace the processor fan.

The characteristics of damage to the processor fan
After the laptop is turned off (more than 1 hour), the laptop can turn on and survive + - 30 minutes. In the period of + - 30 minutes, the laptop died suddenly, because the processor temperature exceeds safe limits (shut down temperature).

How to check
Laptop is turned off (more than 1 hour), then turn on. Download and install software to check the processor temperature. Ex. Real Temp 3.60. See the change in temperature. If the temperature continues to rise, it can certainly cause damage to the processor fan.
- Normal temperature, when first turned on + - 38oC
- Normal temperature, after turn on for hours 40oC - 45oC
- Temperature overheat processor, when first turned on 60oC - 65oC

Hello, The fan that's used to cool the internal system does not turn on anymore, causing my laptop to overheat and shut off spontaneously. How do I fix this? ~ Jordan Williams


Try to clean the fan. This means you need to open your portable system. But before you do this, make your that your computer is not under warranty anymore. If it is not under warranty anymore you have all the means to experiment. Try to remove the fan and clean it. If it does not work, you need to replace it already.

My 4 year old Acer Aspire 5520 notebook shuts off on me at random time periods. I try keeping it proped up and keeping it cool but that doesnt even seen to help. It doesnt over heat but just decides to...


Have you cleaned the cpu fan? The computer has a cpu fan that can get dirty over time. It's job is to keep the cpu cool. When the cpu overheats, the computer senses it and shuts it down immediately, to prevent permanent damage to the cpu. You can clean it by blowing compressed air into it, and should do that every few months, as routine maintenance. This is the most common thing that shuts a laptop down, other problems involve repair, so try this first. I bough a $7 three inch fan at Walmart to help cool the laptop, and when I run it, I never have it shut down on me, but once in awhile it will without the fan, especially when I play dvds or videos, which really work th' heck out of the cpu. There are also commercial laptop cooling devices, but my little fan works just fine. The other thing that could be happening is some problem with windows, which is something I couldn't begin to guess. Hope it's just a bit too much heat.

My hp presario v2000 battery/fan does not work


Viruses will not cause these symptoms....
First of all, do not keep running the laptop in that fashion, the CPU will overheat and die on the unit. Have it serviced for the fan problem. The circuit that controls the battery also may be bad. In any case , you need to have it serviced.

My Computer wont Start up


I got a new fan for my PC, but it was under warranty. Your PC does not know that the fan does not work until it overheats. So, you have some other problem. Try to start it without a battery, just plugged in, if it is a laptop. All anyone else will tell you is that if you get it on, you should reflash the bios. That always is what they tell you. I guess it can't hurt, but if it shuts off immediately, maybe you think you have full power but don't? That's what it is acting like, right? No power.

The fan most likely needs to be replaced. When the computer overheats as a safety feature it shuts down. If you do not know how to replace the fan take it into a repair shop. The does not seem to be the problem.
