The heatsink and fan vents are probably dusty, preventing optimum cooling of the processor. Ideally, the case needs to be opened, heatsink removed, fan and vents cleared of dust. Apply thermal grease to the processor and replace heatsink.

How can I fix thermal shutdown of Acer b1-730?


Could be the CPU needs new thermal paste and reseating.this is usually a fail safe designed to protect the computer when the CPU is getting too hot.also check the cooling fan ......blocked vents as this may also cause overheating issues thus not cooling the internals which will activate thermal shutdown.

MY COMPUTER SHUTDOWN WHILE IT HAS A 60%REMAINING BATTERY. UNEXPECTED SHUTDOWN. MY LAPTOP CANT RESUME THE PROGRAMS RUNNING AND UNSAVED DOCUMENTS AFTER THE UNEXPECTED SHUTDOWN HAPPENS ..WHY MY OTHER LAPTOP...


If the Computer restarts randomly, then the issue might be due to any damaged Operating System Files.
But, if the Computer shuts down randomly, it is due to the Processor.
All the Processors will be designed in such a way that, if there is any overheating issues, the Computer will shut down randomly.
The overheating might occur due to the malfunction of the Cooling Fan in the Computer.
As this is a overheating issue, it would be better to get the Unit examined at the Service Center.
Replacing the Cooling Fan in the Computer should resolve the issue.

My Sony VAIO has shutdown problem. when i do


i think you need to reformat and reinstall the OS on the machine to fix the problem. Some internal data is corrupt and does contribute to the failure of turning off and turning on.

DEAR SIR, I AM USING INTEL 945GNT DESKTOP


shutdown is due to overheating there is a sensor inside every processor to protect it from overheating nd if the temperature goes above this temperature it automatically shutdown.
if you are using a desktop then change your cabinet buy a airy one with extra fan installed in it. or you can open one side of your cabinet to sink the heat quick;y.

Shut down with no reason


It could be a overheating problem.Check the power supply.Or it could be a hardware problem may be the motherboard.I think you require a PC Tech to check the system completely.

Keeps turning itself off. Reckon its an overheating issue.


LCD TV turning itself off is not necessarily overheating.
Often, because of a faulty component, capacitors can accumulate electrostatic charge until an error is detected, or a fault condition can last for a while, until a problem is detected, and the protection circuit will force the TV to shutdown.
The only temp sensor that can shut down because of overheating is placed on the main board, and TV shutdown after a while is often not caused by overheating on LCDs.
Parts that often cause shutdown after a time are Power Supply Unit, Inverter, and main controller board. Parts must be tested to find the fault. The technician can follow the diagrams detailed on service manual to find the fault.

I HAVE P5RD1-VM ASUS BOARD NOW COMPUTER STARTED PROBLEM


Hi,

several reasons for this.

1:) CPU Overheating.
2:) RAM Overheating.
3:) Motherboard Component Overheating.
4:) FAN not operating correctly.

These are a few things that can shutdown a computer after a few minutes, also viruses/trojans et,c.
can shut off hard-drives. and even instruct the bios to change settings.

Check that the CPU And case fans work correctly.

Always shutdown my IBM ThinkPad A21m 2628 PC Notebook


It must be a processor overheating problem, check the vents are not restricted and if the fan is always on or never comes on because of a faulty temp setting then theres a overheating problem and the processor will shut down before any damage.
