Solved Shuts down on it's own and not from over heat

February 14, 2014 at 03:23:35
Specs: Windows 7
I do a lots of music, so when coping music or even searching the web now my laptop shut's down like it gets hot. So I wait until it comes back up on it's own. When it does I can finish what ever I was doing before or start on anything else for a while, and it will shut down again. It is down more than it's up. What can this be?

Probably not you current problem but 2GB RAM is really not enough for Windows 7 64bit. seriously consider upgrading it.
As mentioned above, install HWMonitor and post the temps back here.
If it turns out to actually be that your temps are normal, then I would recommend testing the memory next with Memtest86 via a bootable CD.
The results from these will point us to other possibilities to follow up on.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

How do you know it isn't overheating? Download HWMonitor and run it in real time to monitor both temperatures and voltages. Get HWMonitor at the link below.

You didn't provide the make/model of the laptop or the CPU temp. Do you have to actually restart the laptop to get back into Windows again or does it do it on it's own? Try disabling the auto-restart feature, that way a blue screen will be displayed which should help you to troubleshoot the problem.

It's not on that long before it shuts down, and sometimes it runs longer than others, or shorter.

No it restarts its self, it shuts down, and comes back on. It's a HP/Compaq Pesario CQ56-115DX

Thank you i will do that, it sounds like a plan. My laptop has the memory that i purchased it with, and that sounds like that could be the problem. I will let you know if that works.
