This might be an indication that a hardware is failing. go to BIOS and leave it turned on, see if it will still shut down randomly. If it does, then it is definitely a hardware problem. If it still under warranty, call HP for support. You can also visit HP Support Website for more info.
If it is hardware problem, try isolating it by re-seating the parts which has an integrated chip like RAM, VIDEO CARD and CPU. If you have two sticks of RAM, try each one without the other and see which one is failing. You can also switch to the integrated video if you have one to test the graphics card. Make sure you have the proper knowledge on how to handle these parts as this might cause damage on the computer and electric shock.

Have you figured out if you are loosing spark or fuel pressure when the engine quits ? Could be a relay, coil, fuel pump, or various other electrical components.

Shuts down


Hi,

This is a typical symptom of a failing power supply. Replace your power supply and see if the problem still persists.

Please notify me should you need any further assistance.

Best wishes,

Hi i have a ready heater 170T i cleaned it last year to help out our main heater in our barn for when its get way to cold for our main heater to keep up so i turn this on when i am back there for the day...


Based on your description of the problem ............The part where you say "wont relight till it cools down" is a sign that the motor may be getting hot, the internal sensor in the motor is shutting things down for safety reasons. To find out run the heater til it shuts down then remove the cover. Feel the motor. It should be room temp or slightly warm. If hot- replace the motor with 102001-30.

Other possibilities would be a defective thermostat or temperature sensor. Eliminate these possibilities first.

Had my c1630n for years and suddenly lately i have had it just turn off on me at different times. There are no errors showing in event viewer each time it does it. Sometimes it runs all day the shuts down...


Check the CPU fan's Heat sink whether it heats up such that you are unable to touch at the time of automatic shut down. If it is so then remove the fan and apply some Heat Sink Compound between the fan and processor, reattach the fan.

Shutting off


i have the same problem...laptop randomly shuts down, but its even done it within a minute of turning it on so i don't think its a heat issue. Sometimes it'll run for over an hour with no problem and never shut down, but other times it randomly shuts down sometimes within a minute, sometimes maybe 10 mins, sometimes 30 mins or more ...its maddening! i'd love to find a solution if anyone's found one. Thanks.

Computer Keeps Shuting Off/Battery is Useless


Try running a good malware program like AdAware. Often these spyware programs can driver your processor to 100%, causing it to heat up too much and shutting things down. Once you have the anit-spyware loaded, bring your system up in safe mode. This will allow the spyware to search the hidden partitions on your fd, along with the rest of the disk.
