It could be a virus or some spyware/adware slowing down your system, or it could simply be that your system needs to be cleaned.
Run some general maintenance, including :-
A virus scan,
An spyware/adware scan,
Defragment your drives,
Restrict programs that load at boot-up and reside in your system tray.
& clear your temp directory's out as well.

At the very least, this should help with the problem.

    If the above doesn't help, then it may be shutting down due to overheating.

Slow internet on lenovo u350


There are so many reasons can cause a Lenovo U350 running slow than it used to, it is hard to identify just what might be dragging down your Lenovo's performance, let alone implement the necessary technical adjustments to fix it. So if you want to address the issues more easily, I'll recommend you try a Lenovo speed up software.

Good luck!

Hi, my HP Compaq Presario has been working great till the 5th of July when it shut down unexpectedly. I instantly turned it on again and shuts down again after booting up. I waited for about an hour, then...


Due to the heavy processing the PC heats up. Excessive heatup beyond usual is alarming and PC shuts down by itself when the processor/ CPU temperature exceeds the safe temperature limit. There are mainly two reasons for heatup.
Heating issue generally occurs due to fan failure, which may damage the system, if not checked and resolved properly. Another most likely cause of overheating is the dust present inside the PC, which clogs the fan and heatsink. As you have mentioned that the fan is not running, most probably the fan has gone dead or it may have stopped working due to clogging with dust and hence it needs cleaning or replacement. To do so, you need to purchase a new fan and disassemble the laptop to replace the fan.
To replace the fan, you have to disassemble the laptop and for that you need to have the laptop repair manual that can be downloaded here.
(I think that you have HP CQ60-419WM Laptop). The repair manual contains all the information as well as graphic illustration about disassembling and replacing the fan. Please refer to Page 4-41 for complete details.

If you are able to work inside such electronics and have some disassembling experience, you may try to do it yourself. However, if you have no experience, it is strongly recommended that you seek professional help from HP authorized repair/ service professional.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

My system keeps complaining that my Ctrl key is held down


Check your keypad of your keyboard if shorted or have dirt in the pad. Check also the right click switch of your mouse if shoted or normally closed.

My Acer Aspire over heats and switches itself off ? or at least that's what i think is happening because it just turns it self off. or Do you think something else is causing this ?


Turn it off. If it is really, reallyhot, stop using and let it cool down. It may seem like a no-brainer, but thisis the best method for cooling down your laptop.

When I power up laptop screen is blank


You may have a burned video adapter.

A trouble shoting setp you can try is attatching an external display and seeing if that works.
Also try the function F5 key combo. I think that is the ASUS mapping to switch display output.

HP laptop Pavilion DV 4000 Password


First, DON'T SHORT ANYTHING ELSE OUT!
Now, tell me how one sets a bios password, then just forgets it?
If you can prove ownership on a laptop as new as a DV4000, there are plenty of posts out there describing the proceedure for recovering the system. Occasionally even HP will helpout legitimate owners in situations such as this.
I'm sorry, but this isn't the forum for this particular problem.
Good luck
