Thread: My laptop has began shuting off

  1. #1

    Default My laptop has began shuting off

    I'm suspecting it may be due to the battery being over charged because it turns on the moment I unplug the battery cord when that happens and press the on switch.

    Anyone have any similar experience ?

    Well, if it's anything like what my sister went through, your battery is probably "expired". Form what I hear, it's a common thing for laptops.

    I would think if the battery was dying, having the cord in would only improve the performance.

    So you're having absolutely no random shut off sessions when the cord is NOT plugged in?

    Does your laptop work with the battery pulled out but the power cord in?

    Please tell me you don't have a Toshiba laptop.

    Not sure.

    Never can tell where to find it.

    SO basicly it just does this when it overheats, which is usualy 6-7 hours of non stop work.

    You think I would eventualy need a new battery ?

    It might be cooling gel that's worn too thin or fans that don't work properly anymore, or maybe you just need to get a cooling pad for a laptop.

    It's probably your battery getting old and ready for retirement.

    Battery replacement probably won't hurt either.

    And what do you mean tiny legs?

    Tiny little ovals that make it have some room and not stand directly on the table surface on most of it's space.

    You mean the little pads? Those're fine. Any cooling pad big enough should work. I don't really suggest replacing the battery if the problem is extended use and you find that the laptop is super hot when it shuts off.

    Lack of cooling could cause the problems yes, however, you might want to check your circuit board as well and see if all the pins are intact and work correctly with the power connector especially when your laptop was overheated.

    Anyways hope the cooling will solve the problem.

    I'll eventualy try both, just in case.

    It seems the problem stemmed from the filters looking like dried up moss by now.

    I took them out, is it mandatory to put some back in right away or can you wait a bit while cleaning it every now and then ?

    Your laptop is going to continue gathering dust if you're using it. It shouldn't be too bad if you just leave them out for a few days but too long and your computer will be swamped with dust.
