Specs: Windows XP
I have a NEC Versa E6000 laptop. Recently it shut down unexpectedly quite often. Cleaned the heat sink and problem still. Have to remove both battery and unplug the power adopter, then plug-in either one for starting the laptop. Can anyone help, please?

Is it just powering off, or are you getting a Blue Screen of Death first?

Just another stupid saying...

The whole thing just shut off without any warnings. No blue screen or anything at all. What's wrong?

Does it do that while on battery, AC power or both?

The unexpected shut down while the CPU was operating at high capacity. Either AC adapter or battery, or even both of the power supply. The shut down problem still happen.

Sounds like it could be overheating; check ALL heat sinks and air flow openings to make sure they are clear of debris; also check to see if the CPU fan "turns hard", indicative of bad bearings. Could also be a bad sensor on the motherboard.

The shutting off could also be due to a loose motherboard component: loose hdd, heat sink, lack of thermal paste on heat sink, loose RAM, modem, wifi card, loose data or power connection somewhere.

Could also be due to a possible break in a circuit somewhere on the motherboard caused by small fissures (cracks) on a component level piece on the motherboard.

Hello.
I´ve got exactly the same problem but with the A2200 model. It always shuts down when playing video,usually in under 1 minute, but is otherwise quite random.
Did you manage to track down the cause of this?
