Re: help! my laptop keeps shutting down

Have you tried to re-set your power options.  You will see options to set your computer when you push the power off button, etc.  Maybe your battery is not being fully charged and  it shuts down your computer

Re: help! my laptop keeps shutting down

Maybe your laptop battery is not being fully charged.  Your PC will shut down if the charge of your battery reaches a certain level.  Does  this happen when it is pluged in?  Again your power options may be the culprit when you push the power off button.  Under power options you can set it to go to hibernation, sleep, etc.  Also periods of time can be set when your monitor shuts off, your hard drive shuts off, etc.

Re: help! my laptop keeps shutting down

you need to perform a hard drive self test on this computer.. because if the computer is shutting down frequently for no reason,, it can be a problem with the hard drive as well...

Re: help! my laptop keeps shutting down

Hi,

 

Overheating is considered as one of the major causes of shutdown problems in laptops.

 

When any laptop runs, it generates heat and if it does not cool down, it may result in random shutdowns.

 

Thus, to get rid of this issue with your HP laptop, you should keep it on a flat surface and allow the fans underneath to work.

 

The use of cooling pads for laptops is also recommended. This helps in removing the excess heat.

Hi,

 

Sounds like it's overheating. Try cleaing the fan and using it on a flat surface instead of your lap.

Re: help! my laptop keeps shutting down

I am having a similar problem with my Hp laptop... it is an elitebook and it shuts down for no apparent reason. Most of the time when it shuts down, and pluged in, it isn't hot but if it is running on the battery only it gets really hot and shuts off twice as often; some shut downs due to the heat and some for no apparent reason.This is very frustrating.

 

At first I thought it was because the battery was done for so I purchased a replacement battery but the problem seems to only get worse as time passes. 

 

I have no idea what to do or what is wrong with the laptop. I am in dire need of any advise or assistance I can get with this issue.
