Hi there!

Your cpu heatsink and ventilation system has definitely covered up with dust!
Your laptop is simply overheated and turns off.
Please try to open the cover of the laptop and clean the vents in the heat sink area and the cpu area. It is very likely those vents have been filled up with dust and down. Remove and clean the heat sink that covers the cpu, also.

If you find difficult to do that you could let me know the model of the laptop and maybe i could find some instruction on google or youtube on disassembly of the heatsink.

When the CPU overheats then it will shutdown (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down.If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan. If the fan and heat sink is clogged withdust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use acan of compressed air to do this.

I have Samsung 6272 when I charged the phone is full after 5 minuts I change the batter and charge but m problem not soluve ?


The very first charging-time of the battery should most-usually last 6-8 Hrs , and if you did not do the same i suggest you drain your battery to the bottom until it turns off by itself , then plug in the charger and leave it charging for 8 hours (meanwhile the phone should be turned off ) . should be fine after ;D

(in case you did everything as you should and encountered this problem long time after you using the phone , all you can do is replace the battery)

Computer turns on by itself


Some computers have an option in the BIOS or System Setup Menu to turn the laptop on at a particular time. It's a good feature for people who turn their laptops off at night because the first thing a computer does when you turn it on is to load all the startup software, then begin downloading and installing any updates it might have missed while it was turn off or start running a virus update or scan. That's why computer seem so slow when you first turn them on for about the first 10 to 20 minutes or so. So if I turn my computer off at night and I know my day gets started at 8:00am every morning, then I can set my computer to turn itself on every morning at 7:00am by itself. That way when I go to use it, it's good and fast.

HOW DO I RESET THE THEFT SYSTEM IN MY 2004 DODGE NEON?


Let the car sit undisturbed for 10 - 15 minutes, then try to start it. Check the owners manual if you have it. Sometimes, on various cars letting them sit awhile will allow the system to reset itself. On others sometimes rapidly turning the key from off to on, without turning to start 3 to 8 times within 10 seconds and then on the last turn to the on position leave it there until the horn chirps, at that point turn the key directly to start, or turn off first and turn to start. If all this fails, a dealer can reset the system.

Sounds like something to do with a power saving feature either from HP itself or from Windows. It could also be that for some reason your computer is overheating, which it than shuts itself off to protect the processor. I would try playing with your power saving features, and cleaning out the fans.

hi,
Please check for the exhaust,is it coming properly and check the bottom of the Notebook is it heating ?
If heating then this is the issue with the processor fan.
If the temprature is normal then check in BIOS(leave the system in BIOS mode for 8 minutes) if then also it is turning off surely this is the heating issue.
If above mentioned is not working please revert.
