My Pryon with Windows 7 occasionally unexpectedly shuts down even though there was no power surge. It reboots alright. What should I do?


I didn't know what a pryon was til I looked it up. Is it a desktop? If so you might have to clean out the inside. Blow out the heat sinks and the power supply( both directions) and any dusty looking areas. If it's a laptop you could try and make sure you aren't covering any of the cooling ports when using it. Like sitting in bed with it on the blankets.

El1850g-42w shuts down for no reason


Does it shut down, or shut off?
Shutting off can be a heat issue where it gets so hot it shuts off to protect itself. Check the processor fan to make sure it is spinning, clean out all the dust in the system. BE CAREFUL TO REMAIN GROUNDED SO YOU DON'T SHOCK THE COMPUTER WITH STATIC ELECTRICITY!
Shutting down could be a virus, an installation program in a loop, and whole number of issues that would be too long to go into here. If this is the case, call a professional.

Laptop randomly restarts. Windows Vista. No error message displayed.


Have you checked the temperature of your system? At most of the cases like yours the reason is high temperature. In that case shut down your desktop and open the case. Use a soft brush (and if possible air under pressure) to clean up pedantically the air blinds. In case of using air under pressure leave the computer to "rest" (and the temperatures and humidity to balance) for about 15 minutes. Check for your problem again after this.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Systemax laptop not shutting completely down


Try this ;

Buried deep inside Windows XP lurks a little-known program called shutdown that shuts down your system in a very fast � but orderly � way. Here's how to put an icon on your desktop that'll shut down your machine quickly:

1. Right-click any empty location on your desktop.

2. Click New, Shortcut.

The Create Shortcut Wizard appears.

3. In the Type the Location of the Item box, type shutdown -s -t 0.

It's important that you put spaces before each hyphen, that you have no spaces after each hyphen, and that you use a zero at the end.

4. Click Next. 5. In the Type a Name for This Shortcut box, use a name that will remind you that this button is for a very quick shut down.

6. Click Finish.

My laptop won't shut down properly!


Is it possible that you have changed the settings of what buttons do what on your system? E.g. you could have changed the power button to "switch user" instead of "shut down", to check this (in XP) go to "Power Options" (in Control Panel" and then click on the "Advanced tab" at the top, then select "Shut down" from the drop down menu at the bottom of the window.

If this is already set to shut down then maybe you could do a system restore in case another setting has been changed, restore it to before the PC started doing this.

Alternatively try actually choosing "Turn off Computer" from the Log On screen (press Ctrl + L to get to this screen, or choose switch user/log off). If you are using Vista I beleive that there is a shut-down option from the Log In Page there (which again you can access by pressing Ctrl + L on the keyboard.

Hope this helps!

Toshiba laptop shuts down on its own


Solution:
If the CPU heatsink is not clogged with dust and lint completely, you can use canned air and just blow it inside the laptop through the openings on the bottom and on the sides. It’s nice as a precaution measure, but it might not work if your laptop already has a problem and the heatsink is completely clogged.
Open the laptop case, so you can access the CPU fan and the heatsink. In some cases you can access the heatsink through the latch on the bottom of the laptop. Sometimes (for example Toshiba Satellite A70/A75) you have to open the laptop case all the way down.
Carefully disconnect the fan cables on the system board and remove the fan. If the fan makes unusual sound when it spins (grinding sound), I would recommend to replace the fan.
Clean the fan and the heatsink with compressed air.
I would also recommend removing old thermal grease from the CPU and applying new grease for better heat conductivity.

Hi, my satellite pro laptop is powered up. I can not shut it off.


If the laptop does not shut down if you go to Shut Down, you can try pressing the power button and see if it shuts down, if not, hold the power button down for 5 seconds and it will power off.

Laptop shuts off after powered on omnibook 6000 It runs for a few seconds and shuts down .... it that a bad power supply or what?


You might have a broken or dirty CPU fan. The CPU heat sink fan is responsible to cool down your CPU while it is on. If it is broken or stuck(dirty), then your machine will power off automatically preventing CPU damage or worse-case-scenario:FIRE caused by "burnout".

Your CPU heat sink might not be mounted on your LT properly. Also causing overheating; thus shutting down.

Its a laptop right ? Right! Another thing you could try is to unplug the battery, and let it run from AC power only and see if it makes any difference.
