Sounds like you are overheating. One way to tell if it's overheating is you say it will run for about 30 minutes then shuts down. When it shuts down try rebooting to see if the boots successfully. If it fails to boot successfully right after it shut down then you are probably overheating. If you wait awhile to let it cool down for 30 minutes or so and if you reboot and it does it successfully you definitely have a overheating problem. If I remember correctly all those compaq sr series have loud and fast running fans. Computers overheat because of three reasons for the most part: 1) A fan has stopped working. 2) The Thermal Paste on the CPU and Heat Sink has dried up or is not thick enough to keep the unit cool. 3) Dust has clogged the fan vents and inside the computer. Fortunately for you desktops don't have to be completely disassembled like laptops to get to the fan, CPU and heatsink. Just pop the case and you'll see the components attached to the motherboard

Hi,

I suggest try to check these things on your machine.

->Check if the machine is Overheating.
->Check which part of the machine is Overheating.
->See if the Fan of the machine is Running(Feel if the air vent of the machine)

Cause of Automatic Shutdown:
-Memory
-Hard Drive
-Fan is not working

Most likely those are the cause of the machine keeps on shutting down unexpectedly.

My computer is shutting down on its own. Is this


Scanning computer to eliminate malwares, spywares and the viruses from your laptop.
2- Repairing and cleaning Windows registry.
These two tips are found to be very helpful to fix the laptop shutdown problem. Almost all the computer users surf internet which could result in viruses attacking your system. Some of these infections are really pesky and cause the machines to shutdown randomly.
The registry errors, however, are the internal errors and can become a cause of system crashes and freezes. The registry keys shall be in good health to keep a system perfect.
When I noticed my laptop keeps shutting down everytime, I tested the Intel Software Partner, RegInOut to fix the random shutdown problem with my laptop.

Lately, my laptop (Winbook) has been overheating and shutting down. Any ideas?


3 possible causes for this:
  1. Bad Power Supply....heating up and shutting down
  2. Bad Motherboard...heats up and freezes
  3. Bad Heatsink/processor....fan/heatsink no longer keeping processor cool enough to operate shutting your machine down
If when the laptop overheats, it just shuts down and doesn't freeze or lock up, it's most likely the Power Supply. If it just freezes/locks up, its much more likely that the problem lies with the motherboard. Hope this helps with your laptop problem. Best of luck.

Turns itself off & gets hot -don't think fan is kicking on


Since you do not hear the fan anymore I would start by opening up the case and seeing if power is going to the fan and make sure any connectors for it have not come loose. If the connectors are still hooked up chances are the fan is shot and needs to be replaced.

If you are not familiar with working around electronics and parts under power I would highly suggest you have some one who is familiar with this do it.

My laptop is shutting down after less than 45 minutes usage. It seems it might be getting too hot


Try working on your laptop when you are in a much cooler environment than the usual. the possible reason for your laptop shutting down could be either the processor is getting to hot due to which the cooling unit of the system i not able to cool it down & keep the system temperature under control. I would also like to know the model of the system that you are using at the same time would also like to know the approximate age of the computer that you have been using. I possible which brand is your system & whats the Os its running on... thanks & regards
