Your heat sinks and fans need cleaning, you have to open up your laptop and clean it out. Or you can get a cooling mat that will also help.

The processor has to perform large amount of work while surfing , especially while usingvideos and animationMultiple windows/tabsnumber of browserwhich in turn produces lot of heat . The heat produced is managed by the interneal heat sink and inbuilt cooling fans.But this cooling process may get affected by the blockage in air vents due to dust.So to safeguard the laptop form overheat, it automatically shuts down.
One simple try :Go to the Adobe flash properties and disable Hardware acceleration for online content. That ought to stop the system from rebooting or crashing.

Else...Its better to call a technician when it shuts down often.....

I was watching a video online when my laptop just shut down and turned off without warning. When I attempted to turn my laptop back on, it began making a high pitched noise! I turned off my laptop and...


To avoid this when watching a movie or lots of video's prop up your laptop with pencil or something else small and slender under the back. Just so the laptop isn't flush with the table or desk. You want airflow under the laptop. It shut down because of overheating to protect itself. Watch videos/movies can be very cpu/video card intensive driving up the temperature.

My aspire 4730z overheats and shuts off even with a fan under it and our best buys geek squad said it wasnt designed to watch dvds even though it had a player. its under 1 year old. what can we do?


First make sure the laptop is lint free, specially around the fan's area and on the coil.
You'll notice hot air coming out of your laptop from it.
Usually gets clogged up with accumulated dust.
Use a vacuum in both areas.
If it gets better, but still shuts down, then you need a heatsink cleaning, and a fresh heat release compound for the processor as well.
