Q: How to turn off overheat auto shutdown.

How to turn off overheat auto shutdown?

So I got a new computer and everything is working fine. When I start playing a game the temperature rises and as soon as the CPU or the case gets just over 40C, my computer does an automatic shut down. I think that is a bizzar temperature to have an overheat shutdown. Can anyone help me to turn this feature off? I went into the BIOS, but for some reason I did not fond an option to do that and all I got was the data showing current temperatures. So can anyone help me to turn that feature off or atleast put it up to 70 or 80. Every bit of help is loved!

Preferred Solution: How to turn off overheat auto shutdown.

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 http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: How to turn off overheat auto shutdown.

40C I ain't ever heard that before...

Are you certain that your com is shutting down due to the CPU termperature?
Do you get a warning message telling you it's going to shut down?
And how do you know it's 40C when it does?

If it only happens when playing games it could be something else than your CPU, like your gfx card maybe?

Previously I shut down my laptop, win button + x -> shutdown, the laptop turns off and then reboots itself. I've had no choice but to turn it off cold. I've also turned off 'fast boot' and changed the power settings so that shutdown means shutdown - not sleep. I've even reset the UEFI to default settings. I've stopped letting anything be able to wake the Laptop; wake-on-Lane disabled, magic packet disabled, packet match disabled and still the problem persists.The one thing I haven't done is set fast boot off on UEFI.

Run powercfg /lastwake in the RUN window and it should tell you what is causing the reboot. It's mostly likely a driver issue, so I would make sure everything is up to date.

Hey guys.

I need your help, my pc shuts down whenever i play medal of honor/counterstrike, do anything intensive with CPU and GPU.

speedfan has GPU at 51 degrees, temp 1 @ 117 degrees and core at 111 degrees.
these are all celcius...
Ive reseated the processor, cleaned and reapplied arctic silver yesterday, and today it did the same.

Also it chucks up a silly error with a fan spinning at 135000 RPM... would keep it cold if it was doing that

Any idea why its not cooling enough, i mean the side of the case is off...so its ventilated really well..



edit : forgot specs..
AMD x2 dual core 5200+
3gb ram
nvidia 9500GT 512 gfx

A:Overheat and shutdown!

Hi Paddy


My first guess would be that SpeedFan isn't reading things correctly for your board. My next guess is that SpeedFan might also be not only reading the speed of the cpu fan incorrectly, it might be slowing it down.

Try uninstalling SpeedFan, and test to see if the game causes a shutdown.

The other thing I'd check -- when the system shuts off, unplug the power & ground yourself -- and see if the cpu is burning hot. Check the gpu too. If the cpu truly seems overheated, try a different fan. If you are overclocking the cpu at all, revert to stock speeds (on everything: cpu, gpu, memory, power). If you have a gaming motherboard, check the settings in the Bios to make sure you're not overclocking something unintentionally.

Best of luck

My ZT systems tower computer failed. I found that both the power supply fan and the exhaust fan had failed. I replaced them and booted Win7. It ran for a while then stopped. At first the mouse pointer would move, but clicking had no effect and keyboard entry (ctrl/delete). Then the mouse pointer stopped moving. Everything was frozen and stayed that way regardless of how long I waited.
I let it alone for a few days before I had the time to get back to in. Now I can boot and run the computer; sometimes for a long time (5 days 24/7), and sometimes for a short time <ten minutes and the same process outlined above recurs.
Though I once was a trained computer tech, retirement an old age has pushed me back to novice, but I want to keep my hand in. Suspecting overheat issues,I downloaded CoreTemp and Speedfan, but I don't understand all the capabilities and am very careful. I did find the CoreTemp feature of auto-shutdown and set it to 70 deg C. (it was showing 90 deg as Tj max.
Sometime last night while I was asleep the auto-shutdown was triggered. The max temp hit 201 deg C!
Do you have any idea what would trigger that high of a temp while the computer is at idle?

first of all, I'm very sorry if I'm not posting this in the right board.
secondly, I'm sorry for my poor english in the following thread.

Well...I'm recently facing a auto turnoff issue on my acer aspire 4935.
I has been happening for 3days.
It was not a shutdown, but a "bius“ sound and everthing became black (turned off).
It happened when I was playing a game and the cpu usage was probably staying at 100% for about an hour.
After the sudden turn off, the laptop didn't restart, and when I started it again, before it reached the login page the laptop turned off again.
I have to wait for a few minutes then only I can start it.

After using a program called "speedfan", I observed the GPU value and it raised to 100C ++ when I'm playing the game. The values in the "core 0" and "core 1" entries weren't
seem like changing, they always remain the same since the program is started untill I restart the laptop.
However, I believe that it is a overheat issue, even the surface of the wooden table, the position right under my laptop is damn hot.

And before this, started about 3 weeks ago, my laptop easily get to 100% cpu usage. I checked the task manager and it seems to be normal (nothing weird that busts up the usage), there are all recognized programs, but before 3 weeks ago they weren't taking that much of usage, I'm not sure what's happening. =(

A:slow processor and sudden turn off (possible of overheat)

Yeah, it does sound like overheating to me. A laptop's GPU should not go over ~90C. You can't feel air flow from your fan?

I purchased my HP Compaq 8710p laptop from Purdue University in May of 2008. A little after that it was stolen from me. Thankfully I had it LoJack secured, and they were able to recover it in London. When I got my computer back, however, the Windows XP that it had come pre-installed with was replaced with Windows 7 Ultimate x64. I never had an issue with it for two years until now.

It seems like my computer overheats more often then it should, especially if it is on my lap or the fan is covered at all. This may be normal but even more annoying than that is whenever it shuts down from an overheat or it goes in to sleep mode or I ever have to manually shut it down, it gets to the Windows loading screen where the colors come in from the sides, then freezes, flashes the BSOD and then reboots. When I try to run the Repair, it take about half an hour then says Repair couldn't fix the computer.

If I unset "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" on the Power Management tab of my USB Root Hub properties, then when I attempt to restart my computer from the Start Menu, Windows shuts down but the computer itself keeps running,
i.e. the power light stays lit and the fan continues to run. In order to actually shutdown, I have to press the power button for a few seconds. Upon reboot, there is no indication of a failed shutdown from Windows. However, I am able to shutdown from the Start
Menu without problem.
Is this really the intent of not allowing the computer to turn off a device connected to a USB port, i.e. you can shutdown but you can't restart? Seems a bit arbitrary to me.

Hey,
So I got a new PC a couple of weeks ago with Windows Vista as the operating system but ever since I've been using Vista, it keeps automatically shutting down. I go to sleep and leave my PC on because I'm downloading something but it always shuts down and I have no idea why that happens, are there settings I can tweak or something? Or is it an error or the computer has been over heated? Maybe it's because I left it idle for too long, just PLEASE, tell me how to keep it on..
Regards,
Thank you.
 

A:Why does my PC always auto-shutdown?

It's probably going into standby or hibernate as part of the power saving options. I had this issue when I had torrents downloading and needed the machine to be permanently on.

Go into control panel, and find the Power option. It may also be found in control panel > display > screensaver > power on XP (I can't remember if they moved it for vista).

That's the most likely. Otherwise, yes your computer would shutdown if it was overheating in order to prevent it from frying. That's very unlikely though unless your machine has the fans blocked or not running.

I had Windows ME on my computer and had nothing but problems, invalid shutdowns, blue screens, etc etc... so I bit the bullet and obtained WindowsXP. Loaded it up fine, everything went great, it's running great but....

When I had OS windows 98se and windows ME, when it came to shutting down, the pc would power down and switch off itself, I didn't have to press the button at the "it's now safe to switch off your computer" Since I upgraded to windowsXP I now have to manually switch off the pc.

I did post this thread in the Hardware section but had no joy, any Windows XP users can you help, has anyone got this problem? I keep forgetting to switch the pc off, I got so used to clicking shutdown and then walking away.....

Can anyone tell me why the change and how can I get my auto shutdown back?

Thanks in advance for any advice given.

Every now and then my computer switches off and I get an error message.
Today it's happened to me at least 6 times since I've been on it.
Here's the problem:
It's usually when I'm using LimeWire, recieving files over MSN or sometimes just for no reason at all.
I get a BSOD which says:

"Auto Shutdown

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

This may be due to a possible hardware change, blah, blah, blah.

Begining dump of physical memory

Dumping physical memory to disk 0-100"

Where I've put "0-100", is my computer counting upwards from 0 to 100.
And where I get the message "IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL", it is sometimes "DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL".

Does anybody know what the problem might be?

A:Auto shutdown

Good Morning Cliffy, that problem can be caused by an overheating processor or a memory error amongst other things. (lots of other things)

A good starting place is to obtain and run Everest Home, go to Computer > Sensors page during the kind of period where this problem happens or during some system stressing activity, cut and paste the sensors page Voltage and temp info. (back here)
http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4181.html

A second thing you can do is obtain Memtest86, make a bootable media with it and run it for several hours. Accept no errors.
http://www.memtest.org/

If neither of these ustilities gives a clue you are still in front because you have tested those items.

Cheers, qldit.

I was just wondering if anyone knew why windows 98 is capable of automatically shutting a computer off by its default settings, and when 2000 or XP is installed on the same computer, it no longer can shut the power off all by itself anymore? I read how to make it so it does on tweakxp's site, but it didnt work at all. Thanx for any feedback on this.

We bought new Gateway ZX4000 Windows 7 Premium 64-Bit for our grandson's birthday. We are having so many complications with Win7.
We were using the computer and then we went downstairs to eat and when we came back, the computer was turned OFF. Is this something new with this desktop (All-In-One)? Does it turn off by itself? We noticed the Hibernate mode was turned OFF (marked - Never).
Is there any way to stop this? I believe this All-In-One (touch screen, etc.) is configured like a laptop.
 

A:Auto shutdown

Was it off or in standby?

If no settings for a scheduled shut-off are active, I'd say that Windows 7 is not your problem--the computer is.

What other sorts of "problems" have you had? The machine may shut down by itself if it overheated.

You shouldn't have problems with a new machine. As painful as it may be to the grandson, get your money's worth and make them make it work right.

I am not understanding i have not set any sleep timers or any power management policies but since 2 weeks i am observing that when i leave my laptop ON while i am outside (my laptop is either downloading some patches, movies etc) when i come back i find my laptop shutdown. i've checked screensaver, sleep modes, energy management everything seems to be ok.. it was not behaving this way before at all. i've tried to scan completely for any viruses through Sophos but have found nothing.

any idea what could have gone wrong? it is specially annoying when you find middle of your download was interrupted .

I am running XP version 3, on a Toshiba Laptop. After a nite of electrical interference, this Laptop (my other laptops are running fine) started shutting down after 1 to 4 minutes, sometimes it never made it through the boot. It turns itself off completely, then try as I will it will not stay on. I imagine this has to be a hardware problem, I cannot perform any diagnostics because it wont stay on long enough. So I'm hoping for an educated guess.
Thanks

My older pc with Win XP pro, when shutting down, has the message "it is now safe to turn off your computer" and waits for me to turn it off. Can I get rid of this and have it turn off automatically? I have looked in the setup and power settings, but don't see what I need to change it.

Once in a while my XP machine would auto shutdown immediately after booting up. I would log in to Windows and if I didn't wait for all the services to start it would go through the shutdown process and power off. Now it is doing it every single time, even if I don't login. After 30 seconds or so it will popup a window with "Windows is now shutting down". I can boot into safe mode with out a problem. I checked MSCONFIG and stopped everything I didn't need from starting up, but the problem continues. There are no errors on startup, chkdsk, etc, so I don't think it is a hardware issue. It appears to be some service that is starting up. I suspect it might be the TrippLite PowerAlert software that I had installed to manage my UPS. This software has never worked properly and I had recently uninstalled it.

Recently my PC has begun shutting down on its own, at about the same time daily. I have seen this problem both before my upgrade to Windows 10 (from Win 7) and after. I have looked but cannot find any task commands set but I'm not a tech savvy user. I imagine that there is a "log" somewhere that might help (?). I'll be happy to supply whatever specs you need if you can guide me. Can you help, please?

A:Unwanted auto shutdown

Please download and save FRST 64bit or FRST 32 bit to your Desktop.

http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/farbar/FRST.exe

http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/farbar/FRST64.exe

Right click to run as administrator (XP users click run after receipt of Windows Security Warning - Open File). When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
Make sure that Addition option is checked.
Press Scan button.
It will produce a log called FRST.txt in the same directory the tool is run from.
Please copy and paste log back .
The first time the tool is run it generates another log (Addition.txt - also located in the same directory as FRST.exe/FRST64.exe).

Make sure you post both logs please

Thanks to everyone for the help on my earlier thread.

I replaced the CPU and mobo (upgrades ftw) and now I'm able to power-up and get into BIOS.

My new problem is that the computer powers down suddenly, without warning, after being on for less than 2 minutes.

CPU: Intel Core2Duo (E6420)
Mobo: EVGA nForce 680i SLI 775 A1
RAM: OCZ 2GB DDR1066 (OCZ2N1066SR2GK)
GPU: EVGA 7600GT (256-P2-N550-T2)
HD: WD 160GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s (WD1600YS)
OD: Sony DVD Burner (AW-Q170A-B2)
PSU: Apevia 500W (ATX-CW500WP4)
Case: XION II XON-101 Mid Tower

All of the fans, including the one attached to the CPU's heatsink, are moving. It's on for such a short amount of time that I doubt it's heat related. Would it be not enough power? The mobo recommends an 8-pin 12V connection, but accepts a 4-pin. I'm not running SLI. I have hardly any components. Is it just power hungry maybe?

UPDATE: After checking the forums over at EVGA, I removed the heatsink, reapplied thermal paste, and reinstalled the heatsink. It's been on for 6 minutes now and I'm finally installing windows. Wish me luck!!
 

A:Auto-shutdown after 1-2 minutes

I installed a heatsink once and forgot to remove the protective tape. Be sure you didn't do that.

If not properly cooled, a CPU can overheat in as little as one- or two seconds.

I have this acer aspire for almost 2 years and recently having a random shutdowns. I already scanned my laptop from viruses and malware I've used avg, avast, spybot, malwarebytes but I found nothing. also I am having this weird issue when I am playing this game heroes of newrth my laptop doesn't shutdown it is very weird, also my laptop doesn't shutdown when I let the monitor off by doing nothing. additional to this, almost all of the time when I turn it on it suddenly turn off again for no reason. i think its not over heating
 

A:laptop auto shutdown

define 'random'......I'd also download SIW from http://www.gtopala.com/siw-download.php (free link is on the bottom of the page) and install that. That will show some temps.

Also, start > run > eventvwr.msc > enter > that will open your event log. Right click and empty both the application and system folders (they show up like explorer panes) and the next time it crashes, let us know. We'll tell you how to get the data off.

Finally, is it blue screening when it crashes, or just powering off?
