Hp pavilion shuts off after booting up

My fan had become louder during the last few days. Now, it shuts off after booting up. The CPU fan is still loud . I opened it and cleaned the dirt off but the problem persists.


it seems like the power supply is shutting off after it has been on for 5 minutes

There's probably dirt still inside the fan slowing it down; it may be instructive to just boot into the BIOS and pull up the health screen that shows temperatures on the board; perhaps the CPU fan or chipset fan is failing and the temperatures are going too high, causing the failsafe powerdown to occur.  Just replace the fans and make sure the heatsinks are all mounted solidly; perhaps a new obstruction has presented itself in your PC's airflow, though it is also possible that you're running without A/C and need a better fan in the room or are running an application that really uses up CPU power (causing it to dissipate more heat.)

Why does my pc's power light indicator keeps blinking red (2 beeps) after it powers on and begins to boot, running for about a minute or two?


Hi

This means your PC is doing a Thermal Shut down, the CPU is getting to hot, this means the fan is not running at all or fast enough, or is dusty causing loss of cooling to the CPU.

To fix this open the case look at the fan if its running as it gets louder I would say in your case it is, you need to remove all the dust from the fan and the heatsink I use a small USB fan from poundland (UK) this should stop this error.

Hp pavilion modelp6510f press power switch on top of pc does not light computer fans blow but compute does not turn on


ok th p6000. complete range when they were made had to be recalled as they put the copper expansion pipes ran across the gpu & cpu hence a massive overheat problem. they put copper shims over the cpu & gpu but this worked for a short time but it was inevitable and both units ended up being cooked i had this problem with mine. so if you have tried external monitor with no images it would sound or more likely to be the gpu cooked sorry for the bad news.

Computer just shut down and won`t boot back up


You could have an overheating problemWhen the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.

My HP desk top shuts down during boot. I've


The CPU cooling fan usually sits on top of a heat sink which is held tightly agaist the core of the CPU by the clasps you refered to. It soumds to me like the CPU has oveheated and will only function for a few seconds. If it's a fairly new CPU, you may be able to buy one online at places like http://www.tigerdirect.com. If it's an older model, you will have to try & find one at places like E-bay.

If you install a replacement make sure the CPU fan/heatsink clamps the CPU flush against the heat sink (apply a thin coating termal paste to the top of the CPU core).
NOTE: If the plastic clamps attached to the motheboard which hold the fan clips are broken - forget it! A new CPU will just ovehat again.

Our fan is constantly running now for the last last 3 days when our computer is on. We have the computer on all day and shut it down at night. It is louder than normal. Why is this and can it be fixed. ...


Its not a problem if you have the computer running all day long. Get an additional fan for your computer. An additional fan will reduce the noise as more fans running at low speed produce low sound that a single fan at high speeds. Make sure that the CPU is free from dust. More the DUST, higher the heat and higher the noise.

Fan spinning hard is usually a CPU issue.
If you've made any hardware changes to your computer, undo them. This happened to me when I was trying to upgrade my Processor (CPU) and I had the wrong kind.

My hp pavilion a800n's fan won't turn off


It is possible that your computer is simply overheating causing it to slow down. There are a few ways to check this. Enter the BIOS and go to the hardware monitor, what temperatures does the computer read both for the CPU and the Motherboard? Another option is to install and run a program called HWmonitor that can be found here. Report back when you can.
