Computer is shutting off when im on it y is this going on

Make sure that when you use your laptop, the vent and fan on the bottom is not blocked by anything. If you block the fan or the vent become clogged, the unit will overheat on turn itself off. Vacuum the fan and vents openings from time to time to prevent dust, dirt and or hair buildup. I hope that helps. Its never easy.

My labtop come and go off can tyou help me sove this problem it not off but when you switch it come in about 30 mint and it goes off

If your laptop stays on for awhile and turns off after about 30 minutes or so, then I'd say that it's likely overheating and shutting itself down to prevent the heat from causing damage. What you can try is using a can of compressed air and blowing it into the vents on your laptop to try and flush out dust that might be clogging the ventilation system. If that doesn't work, then your fan might not be spinning and likely needs to be replaced.

My gateway 510x keeps shutting itself off. Sometimes after 5 minutes of booting up sometimes after 30 seconds. What could be the problem? Tried removing dust from the inside but that did not help.

sounds like your processor fan shut down and now your processor itself shuts off when it begins to over heat replace fan asap and don't keep trying to turn it on because you'll burn it out

If the fan is spinning quite fast then the overheating problem is most likely dust clogging the fan and heat-sink assembly. Blasting air into the fan and heat-sink can only make it worst as you are forcing the dust further into the heat-sink fins.
Remove the panels covering the vent and fan/heat-sink, loosen the dust and vacuum to remove this dust off the fan and heat-sink. Check the fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
After re-assembling and boot up, if you still have heating problems, addition cooling can be employed by purchasing a laptop fan assisted cooling pad. Place the laptop on top of this pad and the fans on the pad will direct additional cooling air to the laptop's vents.

My computer shuts down after 30 minutes of being on and then when I turn it on before windows starts it says system shutdown from overheating and runs for about 30 more minuts what kind of problem do you...

Have you ever used canned air or a vacuum on the vents and the fan? Those vents get clogged and cause the unit to overheat from a lack of air movement.

Sony vaio system becomes hot and shutdowns

More than likely the fan above the processor is not working. Or the vents are clogged on the computer case due to dust/dirt. Ventilation.Check the fans.

I have a lenovo laptop, 3000 G410. Recently it has a problem which it shut down by itself after I use it for 20 minutes. After the shut down, I turn it on and this time it work only 2 minutes and shut down...

This sounds like a overheating problem (a CPU thermal shutdown).
This is caused by a faulty fan or the heat-sink and fan is clogged with dust. Check the fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the faulty fan. Check the fan/heatsink assembly and remove/vacuum the dust from these components.

Turns off then will not turn on for about 30 seconds

This remarkable unit may have a working protection for the power. In the older machines, not saying anything just a comparison, when the power is on the filter capacitors take a charge and when shut off will need some time to discharge. If power is permitterd to turmn on at that moment where they did not dicharge to a certain level, that residual voltage plus the voltage of the power supply is suppling add them two and you might over power the PC and fry it. If the machine does not give you a problem stay with a blessing in discise

Computer shutting down automatically

Remove case side and clean out ALL fans then remove fan from heatsink DO NOT remove heatsink (probably stuck on CPU) clean all fluff and dust from heatsink.
Use a stiff brush and vacuum cleaner on power supply fan area
then vacuum out case include all vent holes and behind power supply. test start.should be OK
