Gateway zx4300-01e shuts down after 3 min


It could be overheating. You may need to get someone to strip it down and check the fan and the condition of the inside.

How to repair start-up on my computer


How long is shortly? If it runs and brings up the Windows Desktop and you are allowed to work for 10 minutes or longer then it shuts down, most likely the laptop is overheating. One way to tell if it is overheating is to immediately try to turn it back on after it shuts off. If it will not boot back up, it's overheating. If you let it sit and cool off for a while, then try to boot it back up and it does it successfully, it's overheating.Causes of Overheating:1) Dust all inside the computer. Fans clogged with dust, dust around the vents.2) Fan not working 3) The Thermal Past around the CPU has dried up or is too thin the keep the unit cool.When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous.

maybe you can put or add some thermal paste on the back of the processor by removing the heatsink that attach to the fan simply turn counter clockwise the four lock then pull out the heatsink with the fan remove all excess dried thermal paste replace it with a new thermal paste make sure that you put only a small amount of it, before replacing back the heatsink with the fan be sure that you already turn the lock to lock position before inserting it to the motherboard, now push one by one those lock gently, make sure its snap in place securely all four lock check for uneven on the heat sink before turning the computer on

If heatsink is very hot then apply thermal grease between the processor and the heatsink or you can test if it's cooling problem by cooling with an external, powerful cooler.

My Gateway computer shuts down ramdomly. This


Listen for fans coming on, as this sounds like overheating issue. If fans kick in and then stay constant or dont work at all.
The link is for Notebook hardware control, this will monitor the temp among other things (only reference as a guide any software can give you an indication but not exact temp) Generally if a laptop hits 90c it will auto cutout to stop major hardware failure normal running temp (40-55c upwards depending on use) http://www.pbus-167.com/
If the machine is overheating it could be due to blocked vents, faulty heatsink, fans not working or incorrect fitting and thermal paste.
In all honesty if this is due to overheat problems, as the machine has been cutting out my strong advice would be to do all the above ESPECIALLY re-apply thermal paste (arctic silver5) to cpu, it takes about 100-200 hours of use to start to work 100%.
hope this helps, let me know if i can be of further help
