My laptop keeps turning itself off

Q: My laptop keeps turning itself off

Its not overheating. I have already taken my laptop in to a repair shop and they assumed it was a virus so they reloaded my Windows. Its only 2 years old and I use Kasperski antivirus. When I took it back to the repair facility, the laptop worked fine with no issues. Made me look like I was crazy. When we got it home ten minutes later, it powered on and lasted about 5 minutes and turned off. For about an hour all we could get it to do was come on for a few seconds and turn right off. Never even completely started. It has already been determined that it is not a heating issue, this computer runs ice cold. Before I take it back for a third time does anyone have any ideas on what could be causing this? It happens if its plugged into the wall too. Could there be something wrong with the battery that is causing this? My daughter is disabled and uses the laptop for her school assignments. Its a Dell Inspirion. Please, any help would be great.

Preferred Solution: My laptop keeps turning itself off

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: My laptop keeps turning itself off

Hmmmm. It could be a battery problem among other things. To test to see if it's your battery, I would take the battery out and just power the laptop with the charger. If the laptop stays on and runs normal using just the charger as power. I'd say it's safe to say your battery is the culprit.

Since the problem happens before the machine even boots into windows sometimes. I'd say it's probably a hardware related issue. Usually, it's almost always overheating in situations like this. You say it's not overheating, but, can you provide actual temps for us to confirm that.

Idle and load temps will give us the best idea of the situation. I would also check your RAM. Do you know how to run a memtest?

I bought a HP 15-P100DX about almost 2 years ago (22 months) and its not turning on anymore. I brought it to a place so they could check and the guy said to me that it was probably the mother board ,which that means basically that my laptop is not going to work anymore. What can I do to fix it? or do i have any guarantee?

Just purchased this computer two weeks ago. I turn on the computer, open word, type for 10-40 minutes and boom, it restarted, all my work, poof gone, this has happened the last few days. Yes I know save early and often, this really tests that principle. Computer is not hot, no graphics load, just windows and office running, did a full system scan with antivirus program, it's clean, not actually online when this happens. It is an AMD A10-9600P Radeon R5 processor, I just turned off auto updates for windows, it has to ask me now, just in case that was the issue. Never had issues like this before on an HP machine (this is my 6th), but I suspect it it a windows 10 issue, since it sucks in every possible way. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

My daughter was using her hp laptop and it just shut down and from that screen goes blank. I press the power button but nothing came from it. Did the battery pull and hold down on the power button but nothing happen. Whenever I plug in the charger there is a white light beside the charge and a orange one on a button that marks f 12 those are the only lights and no sound from the laptop....please tell me what you think is the problem.

Hi. My Fujitsu Seimens Amilo Li 1718 laptop will not turn on. I have confirmed that the psu is fine, and there is no short on the power connector on the laptop. The battery has been dead for ages, we always run it from the mains.

There are no lights on the led panel.

I have tried the standard fix - unplug, hold power button for 30 sec, plug back in - this doesn't work for me.

I have made sure that there is not a build-up of dust around the fan and heatpipe assembly.

The power switch still feels ok - it makes a slight click when pressed.

I was wondering if there is anything else that I could try before I open it up to check the motherboard, or take it to the repair shop.

Thanks for reading.

Hi I recently obtained an older laptop (3-4 years) for simple college school work and such, but I am having a problem of actually getting it to turn on. I've checked the battery and the power cord, also I've checked the power cord port to make sure it isn't loose. Was wondering if I could get any feedback on to why it won't turn on and maybe what I could do to fix it.

A:Laptop Not Turning On

Hi R-Ie, and welcome to BleepingComputer.

I take it there is now signs of life when you turn it on, no a LEDs, no fans?

If you have a volt meter you might want to see what the voltage is coming out of the adapter. If you have proper voltage there then check the battery. Also check for loose connections of the charger.

My laptop is not turning on on battery or AC power. While its connected to the AC power the red light does not turn on, hence laptop is not getting power. However, I have tested that the power adapter is working. My battery is not working but when I use another fully changed battery, the laptop turns on and works fine. I went to a HP service centre and the technician tells that there is a problem with motherboard which has to be changed. But how come the laptop is working with battery if the motherboard is not working ? Also the technician tells that if he changes the motherboard, he will not give me my old motherboard as its against HP company policy. Is it true ? Thanks for clarifying my queries. ThanksKalyan

A:Help Please! My Laptop Keeps Turning Off

Sounds like there's an issue with the USB ports themselves, or the power circuit in the laptop. USB provides power to devices that don't have their own, but just because the device has power doesn't mean the device will work correctly. If it were my computer, I'd see if I could find a USB Hub that has its own power supply and then plug devices in to that. The reason is that the Power USB Hub will provide power to the devices thereby allowing the USB port to only worry about connectivity.

hello everyone!

My laptop has been having various problems that come and go for a few months now, but most were just small annoyances until recently...I decided to install Ubuntu on my system because I had a really bad virus infection and I liked ubuntu..everything worked fine and I experinced no problems until recently, because now my laptop wont turn on. When I press the power button I hear fans coming on and it souns like its working but the screen doesnt turn on and the fans stay on for a second, pause for 5 seconds and then continue working like im playing a graphics intensive game. I suspect it could be mobo/CPU damage since my computer has always run really hot (almost burned me once). Any advice on reviving/testing my computer? (BTW sorry about my grammar and spelling but Im in a rush)

Every half an hour my laptop turns off. It has NEVER sat on my bed. It stays on my desk. It only a few months old so no dust is in it. I moved the RAM to the second slot. I updated all my drivers. It does that with and without using the battery. I changed the power options to never. I made sure the CPU has thermal paste. I installed SpeedFan and its not showing the computer overheating. I've ran 3 virus scans. I've fixed the registry 4 times. I defragged the harddrive. I have no clue what to do next. I've done everything I can think of. Can anyone tell me what to do next?

Hi and Welcome to TSF!


I've fixed the registry 4 times.

Please do not mess with the registry or run any registry cleaners as it could cause some big damage.

Try doing the following: go to Start > Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt > in the popup box type: chkdsk /f and restart.

Are you sure your power settings are set to stay on and not go into sleep mode? Has the computer ever shutdown as your using it?

I have a Toshiba laptop, three years old, with XP. Last night I shut down the normal way and this morning it doesn't turn on.

The on light is on, but the screen is blank. If I press the emergency power button, there's no response. The power on and battery charging lights do not turn on. The fan is working. I have turned off the power, hoping that when the battery dies it will turn off and then we can turn it on again. Right now, it's dead except for the fan and the on light.

I would have to say either the a/c power cord is bad or theres some sort of a power supply problem somewhere.Or the new battery might not be the exact match for the computer.I wouldnt use it anymore until you are able to have it checked out because of it running hot which it shouldnt be.

Hard to believe software could break the machine like that.

Ok so I have an acer aspire one the small type of laptop. Last night it was working fine and I fell asleep with of on my pillow. It fell on the carpet with the power cord still plugged in and fell on the top. Now this morning I tried to turn it on it ran for a few mins then turned off. I tried it again, got to where it starts after I log in then turned straight off. I have tried taking the battery out, re plugging the charger into a different outlet but nothing will keep it running. Can someone please help I don't know what's wrong with it considering it was working perfectly fine last night.?

A:Laptop keeps turning off please help

First of all, you should be very careful with laptops, they run too hot...
I can't really ask how it fell, because you weren't watching, how does the DC jack (where the power cords plugs in) feel? Does the charge light come on when it's plugged in? Is the battery charged? If you made it to the log-in screen, I can only guess (and hope) that the battery isn't charging. Some laptops don't work without the battery plugged; I don't know if Acer is one of them...

My laptop is fifteen months old. In the past three months, there was an issue that once I put my laptop on sleep mode and after three hours, I tried to switch it on but it did not . No power light was on. I pressed power button several times but it did not work. Then when I conncected it to the AC power supply it was switched on instantly. Same problem has occured four times. I can't figure out what"s the issue and how to fix it forever? Kindly guide me

I got my laptop about two years ago. It stopped charging around Christmas, then, an hour later, it started turning off when ever I plugged it in. I took it in to be fixed. First they replaced the power jack, it still didn't work, so they replaced the adapter. then, finally, they replaced the mother board. I only just got it back yesterday. I took it home, and it was fine. For the first hour or so, that is. It suddenly shut off. No warning or anything. I turned it back on, it booted up just fine, like nothing ever happened. 45 minutes later it did it again. It has been doing this ever since.

My comp is made for gaming, and has a beastly cooling system. I've been checking to make sure the fan is working. It happens randomly. I can be playing a game, surfing the web, or just letting it sit idle. It never happens right when I boot up. It always runs about 45 minutes to an hour before shutting off. It doesn't have any problems booting up.

Any tips would be nice.

A:My laptop keeps turning itself off

You must have paid a lot to have the motherboard replaced. I would be back to see them about it. If it really is a gaming laptop it will have cost a great deal of money and have high resistance to heat together with a plug in graphics card module. Generally speaking even laptops that look impressive can't stand up to intensive gaming but you mention that the problem can occur when the laptop is sitting idle. You can't afford to let them keep replacing bits in the hope of a solution but they need to do a better job of pinning down the problem.

Techtitian mate first is there any sound coming from the machine when you power it up?

Mine usually clicks away at the optical drive before cutting to the HDD

If I thought it was the HDD I would be installing a new drive and use this


Forinstalling I prefer a disk to be honest but if you want to try again this isthe one to follow
Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 makesure it is the right version ie Home Premium or Ultimate whatever you have acode for and then the language and do not use the ones with a large"N" or "old" beside them. If you are wondering why the N itis because that will not include the Windows Media Player and while it is notmuch to get it it is tedious.
You can use a disk or USB stick with this.

Hello, I have a couple questions:

I am working on a Gateway M305CRV laptop. It will not turn on. When plugged into the wall, the LED light does not come on even indicating that it is getting power. However, the power cord does light its own little green LED light on the box halfway between the wall and the computer. When I push the power button on the computer, nothing happens.

I know my battery is poor. If the battery is completely dead, can the laptop still be powered on by being plugged in?

What are the first few steps I need to take to analyze this problem further?

Thanks for any help you can provide!

I'm very confused by this. Twice now at my uni house where my computer stays out on the desk it has turned itself on. This hasn't happened to me while I was at home over christmas where it lives in a bag (thank god lol fire hazard).

I told it to hibernate last night, turned off the plug and there were no lights on anywhere, but when I got up today it was on. I went to the event viewer but they only start at 13:45 (about when I got up).

I thought it might mention when it was powered on or when something started but it started with browser.

Hi All,

I tried to remove battery and start my computer with power cable but it still does not help. Please advice any quick solution. I need laptop for urgent use.

Thank you.

Just re-read your post...

If you cannot enter safe mode, and you are not offered option to enter bios configuration, it would indicate a hardware failure.
Could be several kinds of hardware issue that can do this.
(Including memory failure, hard drive failure, etc)
Do you get a beep-code at power-up? If so, this may help us.

If you can see your option to enter bios, but cannot enter safe-mode, it could indicate a corrupted windows, or perhaps a failed hard-drive.
Try entering bios configuration and see if your bios is finding your hard-drive.
If so, then I would suggest attempting a restore, after running hard-drive diagnostics.
If not, then my first guess is a failed hard drive.

Let us know the answers to these questions.

I purchased an Acer Aspire 5742 laptop and a problem caused it to hang up just a flashing cursor and no keys worked, the only way I was able to turn it off was unplugging the battery.
That problem has been resolved but I would like to know if there is any way to turn it off without doing that.
I cannot see any mention in the on-line user guide.


A:Turning laptop off

I know that you said that no keys worked, but perhaps the WIN key might: When the system freezes and you cannot move the cursor, you can press the WIN key on the keyboard and navigate with the right-arrow ? key – then scroll up or down to Restart or Shut Down. There is always one letter underlined for the various actions in the pop-up window - e.g. "R" for Restart or "U" for Shut Down. Just hit that letter and the action will be performed.

Hi there,

I have an old laptop Sony Vaio PCG-V505BP and the problem is that it won’t turn on. Battery is dead.

Using AC it wouldn't turn on but when I changed the HDD the green power light and charging light came on and I heard HDD start spinning...but there was nothing on the screen so I decided to switch it off and back on. So I did, except the green power light and charging light came on but no HDD activity and once again nothing on the screen.

Any idea's on what the problem is and how to solve it?

A:Laptop not turning on

Not turning on, meaning it has a black screen?

Test AC Adapter output. Check the AC Adapter jack.

When you first turn the PC on, can you hear the HDD to spin up?

If you hear the HDD, turn off the power, then try to Power Cycle. Remove AC Adapter and battery. Hold down the power button for a minute or two. Install battery, AC Adapter, and try to power up.

If screen is still black, try in Safe Mode. Anything yet?

I initiated a recommended "re-start" of my Toshiba computer and walked away. I returned to find it off. I turned it back on and saw the message alerting me it hadn't shut down properly. After Windows opened, a message bubble appeared with the alert "Failed to connect to Windows service." Within 30 seconds, the computer turns itself off again. Several months ago, I was receiving a message that I wasn't using authentic Microsoft Windows, but I know for a fact that I am. Not sure if the issues are related. Am computer illiterate; please respond accordingly.

A:Why is my laptop turning off by itself?

Sounds like it was doing a Windows update. Try restarting the computer. If that doesn't help do this (which sometimes unsticks computers):Turn off computer and remove power. Remove main laptop battery. Hold Power Off/On button down for about 20 seconds to discharge motherboard components. Re-assemble and hope you are lucky.Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I would be grateful for any help with this. For some reason yesterday my laptop just decided to cut out & turn it self off. When I restart it in safe mode with networking it seems to stay on but if I try to load it with normal windows it just cuts out.

I think it must be some kind of software issue but I don't know where to start trying to fix it. Has anyone got any ideas? Thanks.

A:Laptop keeps turning off

Well, there could be quite a few causes for this.

First thing I would suspect is a driver issue since the PC works in Safe Mode. Usually you would see a BSoD (Blue Screen of Death), but if your system is set to restart when this error occurs, you won't see it. I would first check to see if you have this set up to show BSoD's: Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD

In that tutorial make sure that the computer is not set to automatic restart.

If you get a BSoD when the computer shuts down now, we will have a place to start from.

A:Laptop not turning on.

If your laptop's battery is easily removable, you can removing the battery after removing the ac adapter. Then disconnect all the peripherals and the then press and hold the power button for 1 minute. This should release any static electricity buildup that may have accumulated. Then try powering on the computer with only the ac adapter connected.

I have an EiSystem 4405 laptop 2.4 Ghz Celeron processor with a 30 Gb hard drive, 256 MB DDR RAM.
One night i was on it then it just shut down
I thought it might have been a cooling issue
So I left it off overnight and tried turning it on the next day and it didnt come on
I opened it up and tried cleaning out the fans as I heard this might improve cooling but that didnt seem to do much
The battery by the way is dead in it so I have it out
I left it off for a few weeks and tried a new power cable and it turned on
I put the old one back in and that worked too
So i thought maybe it might be the connection that connects the power cable to the laptop

A:Laptop not turning on

Remove the power adaptor (and battery if it was in)
Hold in the On button for 30secs (dispersing all internal power)
Put the power adaptor back in
Try turning it on

I turned it off once it loaded up. Today i tried to turn it on but it wouldn't turn on!

Does anyone know why this is happening?


A:Laptop not turning on

There is a possibility that the liquid spill on the laptop has not dried up properly, this is the reason after several months and you tried it and it work but after shutting it down ity no longer works again. There is a possibility that corrosion on the parts of the motherboard is causing this problem. I woould advise to have the motherboard checked by certified technician or contact Sony to have it fixed or replace the motherboard (you will be paying for the repair since the damage was customer induced).

I don't see any obvious problem there. If the laptop shuts down when you're using it that's a problem but if you are inactive for a while and it shuts itself down in the meantime it may be because of the Power settings that have been selected under Control Panel.

I got a new laptop for my birthday/christmas, so i have had it about 2 months. Sometimes when I shut it down, it doesnt start back up. to get it to start back up i would have to take out the battery and put it back in (sometimes i had to do this multiple times). I bagan hibernating it so i wouldnt have this "turning on " problem. I would keep updating and restarting on a regular basis. But yesterday i hibernated and it wont turn on at all today. =( I tried taking out the battery and putting it back in. I plugged it in and the charging light turns on, but when i press power no lights turn on. Any advice on how to fix this?

The battery light doesn't come on but did on the day I got the laptop.

Have you checked your power settings? Also either download Speed Fan or Hwmonitor. In order to check your temps. Sometimes you will not see a warning for your laptop over heating. It will just shut it's self down.

Hi, my laptop (dell Inspiron 15 7000 series-7537) is not charging, tried the charger with another laptop and it works , so it's definitely not the charger wrong, it also has been discharging sometimes when I charge it " like it shows not charging" on the screen ..... Any ideas on what to do or do I have to send it in for repairs and how much will it cost me??

A:Laptop Not Charging and not turning on also

Does the system power on at all?  If not, unplug, remove or disconnect the battery and hold the power button for 30 seconds.  Remove the base cover and remove and reinstall both memory modules.  Plug in the AC adapter and see if it'll power up.  If it will with the battery disconnected but not with it connected, the battery is bad.
If it still won't power up, check the USB ports for damaged pins that may cause a short-circuit.  Failing that, if you've already tried a new Dell AC adapter to no effect, the power jack is the next possible suspect -- that's about a $35 part:
If replacing that doesn't solve the problem, you're looking at a mainboard replacement - on the order of several hundred dollars for the part, plus labor to install.

I use a cooler on mine but i dont need to power the fans, just the gap from the surface is enough..

My HP draws its air from the bottom, and unfortunately when it expels the hot exhaust some of it comes back into the intake because of the downward angle of the exhaust..

If you just bought it, return it and get a system that does not intake from the bottom or has a higher TJ MAX than your model HP which is 100 C....

The laptop is about 7 years old and is a Toshiba Satellite A210. It will random turn off when it is in use but if it's idle, nothing will happen. I have recently upgraded the laptop to windows 7 and in the process, erased anything on the hard drive. I have also just replaced the battery and purchased a cooling pad but the problem persists. It will also turn off even when it is charging.

Anything I can do to fix it or is it time for a new laptop? I have considered opening up the laptop and using a compressed air can to clean it out but have yet to do so.

A:What are the causes of a laptop randomly turning off?

From your description, it appears that the voltage regulator circuit on the motherboard is failing. Even if the machine didn't have any overt problems, I'd still have to say it is past time to replace it. I mean, it certainly doesn't have the horsepower to run most current applications, and I find it hard to believe that Win 7 installed and ran on the computer with anything like accpetable performance. Hardware is really cheap these days, and it's hard to imagine a valid reason not to replace the machine.

I personally don't see why it should, you should be able to run from an external monitor permanently on a laptop if you want to.

You may be able to replace the LCD anyway, have you checked ebay and the like for the same model, possibly going cheap as spares / repair or even looking for replacement new LCDs?

Today, i just removed the battery to note down the product name and placed the battery back. Since then my laptop is just not booting (not even with charger) no light seen at the charging point, tried different sockets. There are no sounds is just not working...What could be the possible issue? Any suggestions please.Thanx

A:Laptop Turning on Issue

I have a Samsung NP300E5A-A02UB with a broken screen. I'm trying to get it on and connect the external monitor, but I can't because it won't turn on all the way. After I turn it on, the hard drive indicator light in the front is on solid for a few minutes, then goes off completely. Since I can't see the screen, I try clicking enter key, tab and enter, etc, to see if I can get through whatever process it going on behind the screen. But when I press Enter, ESC, DEL, probably a few others, it just restarts the laptop and does the same stuff, hard drive indicator is solid for a few minutes, then blank. So it seems no matter what I press, it just restarts, does whatever it's doing for a few minutes, then stops.

So does anyone know what the issue is? What is happening? How to get through it?

Remember, I can't see the screen, I have an external monitor that has always worked, til one day I turn it off through the power button and couldn't get it back on. It would always start up normal and monitor turn on automatically after it started to login to my user.Click to expand...
Are you getting any beeps from the machine itself when it starts?
