Question about Compaq Armada M700 Notebook

1 Answer

Shutting Off or freezing

About a month ago my computer was going into standby at random but I fixed that problem and it's been working fine since then. . . but the other day, it froze up on me, and when I restarted it, it kept shutting off. And I'm still having this issue. I read situations similar to mine, but none quite exact. What happens is when the adapter is plugged in, it'll boot up and then either shut off or freeze up. . .most of the time shutting off. When it is just running of of battery power, it stays on for a good while. When I leave the power cord in to "charge" the battery, the computer comes on, then shuts off, the the light does not show the battery is charging. I've taken the battery out and put it back in, but that does not seem to help. I have no idea what the problem is. I really need help!

There might be a short in the power adapter. You can have it tested at any electronics repair shop. Your battery is probably getting very little charge. If the adapter is bad, I'd get it replaced very soon before it really ruins your laptop.

Geforce 8600 GTS recent drivers cause random freezes using vista

Hello,

Are you sure that it's the driver that's causing it?

I suggest that you run an anti-virus scan. It might have been caused by a virus infection in your computer.

You can also try using RadarSync to scan your computer for driver problems (outdated drivers), then you can google the drivers and install. RadarSync will give recommendations. If you want RadarSync to do all the things for you, then you can buy the license.

I hope this helps!

These two tips are found to be very helpful to fix the laptop shutdown problem. Almost all the computer users surf internet which could result in viruses attacking your system. Some of these infections are really pesky and cause the machines to shutdown randomly.
The registry errors, however, are the internal errors and can become a cause of system crashes and freezes. The registry keys shall be in good health to keep a system perfect.

Emachines ET1810 desktop computer randomly powers down for seemingly no reason. Doesn't crash or freeze, just turns off, as if the plug was pulled. Started about 5-6 months after buying.

It could be overheating, and automatically shutting itself down, to avoid any damage.

Did you get the standard 12 month warranty when you purchased the computer? Did you purchase "extended" warranty? If so, contact Emachines, and get them to trouble-shoot and fix it.
