The problem would be the faulty processor fan - solution : Open you laptop and Check it if still spinning, If faulty, replace new processor fan.

Another problem might be your laptop does not have enough ventilation and make sure the airway passage is not blocked causing hot air condensing inside the laptop and may cause overheating of your laptop. And eventually shutdown your computer and worst might be hardware damage like processor failure.

Dust build up on processor fan, check the processor fan is have to many dust build up and clean it with toothbrush or with air blower.

Please rate and make a comment if you find this solution very helpful and might help others as well. Post more comments if you need more help.

Check to see if the fan is working by picking up the laptop and looking at the fan. Also if this laptop is being used on cloth ie lap or bed it can have cooling ducts clogged also have a hard drive test done

Asus k52f keeps shutting down randomly

I have seen the odd case where the power supply cannot keep up with the demands when the laptop is running causing it to shut down, but first! remove the main battery to see if that helps, no change! I recommend replacing the power supply adapter in hopes it will correct the problem. Go to Type make and model of laptop, refine search to power supply and go through the list of prices.

When i turn my asus p5gc mx 1333 on after 2~3 seconds its shutdowns itself.whats the problem is?

Don't attempt to restart it over and over. I BELIEVE its your heatsink not sitting correctly to your cpu. The cpu then shuts itself off because it gets too hot. Go to radioshack and pick up "artic silver" paste to put onto the top of your cpu. Spread it with a credit card, and put the heatsync back onto it properly. You should be fine. Lemme know what happens.

Removing flash memory card reader

Try to ran a typical laptop battery of tests, including games, applications, and a couple other areas. Time constraints limited the amount of testing we could get done before the NDA lift (and it's already a few hours late), but we will be providing a follow-up article with further testing and information. That said, if there are any specific areas that you'd like to see tested, feel free to e-mail me or leave a comment.
