HP pavilion laptop shuts down abruptly

My hp pavilion dv 6000 series is five months old. Recently there was a battery charging problem, and I had sent the laptop to the HP service center, from where I got the PC board changed(they said it was the PC board which was causing the error). Now, after getting the pcboard changed, my laptop shuts down without any warning after 15 - 20 minutes of usage.(I have a feeling it shuts down whenever I use the hard disk intensively, like while using the Windows Disk clean up , or other softwares like photoshop). Sometimes, it shuts down even when am not using/running any problems. I even flashed the bios to the latest version, it still has the problem. If I send the laptop to the HP service center, it will take another month or so. So, if someone could help me, I'd very appreciate it.

    I have the same problem with my ASUS A6U PC Notebook.

    It "feels", it overheats and shut down. But it is not warm!

    The fan and cooler is cleaned. And i cannot feel any heat with fingers.

    The fan speeds up and the Asus-Probe says 90 deg. C and the system shuts down. Don´t know, if there is a sensor or where it should be located. Of cause any help would be appreciated.

    My laptop also shuts down without warning. I think it may be becuase i use it on my bed, and on my lap so the fans may not get cool air. But im not even sure this is the reasosn. My batery life will be 30% and all of a sudden the scren will just go black and shut down with out a single warning or anything. Why is this happening? the last time this happened, it crashed my hardrive. I called HP and they sent me another hardrive and it worked just fine. two days later..... the screeen went black again, just automaticaly shut down. so it wasnt a hard drive problem. Do u think my battery is malfunctioning??? or is it heat problem?

It sounds like something is overheating to me. Also, it could be a bad motherboard. Try putting your laptop on a hard surface. I carnt stress this enough. Also, you can try cleaning out the laptops cooling vents with some compressed air (you can get it at pcworld). At the end of the day and it still wont work, send it in for repair. Good luck

If yourlaptop shuts down abruptly (looses power), find a repair shop that can resolveor change the DC power jack as soon as possible, as the motherboard has alreadystarted to burn around the dislodged pins.

Well... i'm not 100% on this, but it sounds like you may need a new battery pack, or they may have installed the board wrong. and last time i tried repairing my computer, it broke...

    My hp pavilion dv 6000 does not stay charged even when plugged in

    Batteries fail alot, and what they dont tell you is that modern Li-on batteries get damaged if you leave your computer plugged in all the time.
    You need to charge the battery and then run it on battery power.
    Sounds like your battery is knackered, you can get replacements. I googled your model and found 1 for £23

    Run system restore to factory default.

    Start the system and hold down the f11 key till you hear a beep. Then follow the onscreen instructions.

    Good luck.

    Laptop turns off when charger is plugged in !!

    Charger is bad and is not putting out the correct voltage which causes the computer to shut down. Battery probably isn't much good either if it only lasts for one hour. Get new batter and charger. Ebay'ers will help you find one cheap.

    HP Dv 6000 series Screen got blurr suddenly.

    Restart the system holding down f11 key to run system restore to factory default setting. Remember to backup your documents
