T520 unexpected shutdown with battery only

Q: T520 unexpected shutdown with battery only

Unexpected shutdown, no bsod, no warning. Only happens without AC (battery only). I thought it was a bad or damaged battery, so bought a new one. Worked better for a couple days, now back to sudden shutdowns, nothing in the event viewer. Won't boot with battery only after shutdown, need AC to get started again. Older model, bought maybe in 2011.Current thoughts : - damaged/loose battery connection- failing cmos (no other signs, wifi has been flakey though)- failing mobo- other failing hardware ?before I invest any more money in this laptop I'd like to try to identify the real issue.

Preferred Solution: T520 unexpected shutdown with battery only

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.)

Have had a Flex 5 1470 for 2 weeks and today for several hours I ran into this issue where whether it was connected to power or working on battery power I could use the laptop only for around 3-4 minutes before it woud unexpectatly shut off (literally an immediate BLACK screen). I could then power it back on and continue to work for another 3-4 minutes before this would happen again. I downloaded a CPU thermometer and heating was not the issue (was operating well below the operating temperature for the i7).  Any ideas of what was going on? What might have caused this issue and more importantly how to resolve this issue? Your feedback is appreciated!

Hi -

Most of the 11 BSODs list NVIDIA video as the probable cause.

1. Update your NVIDIA video drivers -

Code:

nvlddmkm.sys Tue Mar 16 22:00:40 2010 (4BA037C8)
nvBridge.kmd Tue Mar 16 21:31:37 2010 (4BA030F9)

NVIDIA --> http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

One of the BSODs had a bugcheck = 0x124 = WHEA = Windows Hardware Error Architecture - potential hardware failure

Info on 0x124 --> http://www.sevenforums.com/crash-loc...-what-try.html

2. Remove Daemon Tools/ Alcohol 120. A driver common to both sptd.sys is known to cause BSODs.

3. Update your ESET installation to v4.2.64.12 --> http://www.eset.com/download

You need device driver updates. Alienware Support sends me to Dell Support -

http://support.dell.com/support/down...nConsent=False

4. Update all device drivers - chipset (NVIDIA & Ricoh), audio, network. DO NOT download the NVIDIA Video driver from Dell - go to NVIDIA Support per step #1 above.

Okay the subject is pretty self-explanatory, when I try to shutdown my computer via windows shutdown the computer restarts itself. Also whenever I plug in the AC adapter the computer always turns on automatically. If I unplug the ac adapter and pull the battery yes it will not restart obviously, however after plugging the battery back in sometimes the computer will not turn on unless I plug in the ac adapter at which point the computer automatically turns on and the battery is always recongized. I have edited registry keys, changed power options, disabled ac adapter power on settings in the bios as well as updated to the latest bios and set to default configuration. I have reinstalled windows 10 and ran thinkvantage system update to get lenovo drivers and NOTHING as caused this issue to go away. Does anyone have any ideas? If this is failed hardware what could possibly cause this? In case it was questioned once the computer is on it operates perfectly, but as a laptop its kind of worthless if I can't rely on the battery power only on the go. FYI: Yes I have tried in safe mode and shutdown still restarts the computer.

Hello, hunter1b It might be a dust on the system board surface, especially near to the CPU power circuits or laptop power input connector.Use the vacuum cleaner (or, better, gas cylinder) to remove the dust, carefully. And then use isopropyl alcohol to wash the surface.

Hi

I have seen many posts on various forums describing similar problems to mine, but no solution. Problem is as follows:

Running Windows Home Premium on HP DX7400 core 2 duo, 2gb memory, Nvidia 8400GS Video Card.

Everything runs perfectly, until I shut down.

I click shutdown and system starts to shut down, BSOD and minidump, then automatically reboots and says it has recovered from an unexpected shutdown.

If I ask it to find a solution it sends me off to some Broadcom Bluetooth driver problem and I have no Bluetooth installed. I did have but its uninstalled with Revo.

I have checked the disks, the memory, updated all Vista Updates and Nvidia drivers, Broadcom Ethernet driver.

Nothing seems to fix the problem. Its totally random. Sometimes it shuts down fine and sometimes not. I had XP on this PC initially and it was fine,

On many of the posts it seems to be only Vista Home Premium users who have this problem, I never see it with Ultimate or Basic Users. I also seems to affect many brands and configs, so it seesm to be a Home Premium problem.

Does anyone know of a fix?

I guess this is a very old thread, but I am having the same problem with my ThinkPad T520.
The battery is fine, but it will not power the laptop. I'm thinking it may be a pico fuse on the motherboard.
Turning the laptop off for a few minutes as suggested does not work. Taking the battery out and pushing the power button for 30 seconds does not work. Buying a new battery just because Lenovo says my old one is dead does not work for me.
Anyone else having similar problems?

T520 i7The Problem: Machine will not turn on when button is pushed.Steps Taken: New motherboard installed. Machine started up just fine. Turned it off and it would not power up when button was pushed. I unplugged the CMOS battery(the little watch battery) and plugged it back in and the power button works once again. Turn it off again and again it will not power up. If I leave the CMOS battery unplugged, then I can restart the machine, but only after I unplug the power cord and plug it back in; kind of like a reset between each poweroff/power on cycle. If laptop battery is inserted, it will not power on no matter what I do. It will only power on with the power cord. Laptop Battery checks out fine. I tried a new CMOS battery as well.Solution???

Hi,I have this weird problem with my battery indicator. It doesn't work, shows gray battery and three dashes inside instead of the remaining time. The system (Windows 7) built-in indicator works properly however. When I open the Power Manager, it shows some random, impossibly high number of watts used. Each time I open the power manager, the value is completely different.  I haven't installed/updated anything recently, yet a few days ago when I've started the system, the battery indicator stopped working. Restarting the system doesn't help. What do I do now?

Hello!
I have a Vista Home Premium 64bit HP Pavilion dv2000 laptop.

I don't really shut it down much, I just put it to sleep all the time. For over a year, it worked fine.

Recently though, instead of going to sleep, it just freezes and restarts by itself, and I get a message saying "Windows recovered from unexpected shutdown" ... it does that every other time I put it to sleep, and sometimes when it's asleep OR on hibernate (with fans off and everything; sleep also has fans off), it just spontaneously freeze-restarts - so it doesn't look like it overheats.

I tried updating everything I could think of and uninstalling random crap, but it didn't help..

It freeze-restarts all the time, I don't know what to do with it at all. I would really appreciate any input or experience with this kind of situation.
edit24569i27: I had the same problem many months ago, but I updated stuff and it stopped freeze-restarting. I really don't know what I did though.

Thanks,
Julie

Hello Bleeping Computer folks, I have a question.
 
When I check Event Viewer, I saw an "Unexpected shutdown" error, although the shutdown was performed properly (using Shut down from the Start button).
 
Can somebody explain this? I use Windows 7 Ultimate.
 
Thank you.

A:Unexpected shutdown?

Unexpected shutdown error messages appear automatically in Event Viewer...anytime that Windows reboots from an unexpected situation...whether the cause be heat, hardware, software, malware or whatever.  Anything that causes an unplanned reboot while working in Windows...will result in this message.  Loss of power to the system will also be among potential causes of this message being noted.
 
I suggest looking at all the other errors reflected in Event Viewer to try to find clues.  Another source would be any data reflecting BSOD situations.

I think it's a power supply problem or not enough ram. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks in advance.

Could be overheating, have him check the fans. Or it could be the power supply or motherboard.

Hi. I don't know what the problem is.

The pc just shuts down whenever it wants. First I believed it was my Graphic card, because it was a Nvidia card and my mobo is CrossFire ready and don't support all features of Nvidia cards. Now I have 2 EAH3870 card in CrossFire. Yes I have tried just one at the time to check if it was the problem, but no.

I also believed it may be the RAM but I don't think so after diagnostic checks. The pc have 4 Gb of ram, and I have tried to run it with just 2, same problem.

I got the standard ICH9 error but I believe that the PC have the right Intel driver now.

Apart from that I don't have any problems detected in windows error log (Event Viewer). Just the Unexpected shutdown and error code 6008. and windows doesn't have a solution on this code.

A:unexpected shutdown

Is Microsoft updates enabled and allowed to download and install updates automatically. Sometimes, it will download em, install em, then bring up a pop up asking you to restart and there's sometimes a time limit within which, if you don't select anything, it will restart itself automatically.

This could be one reason, but it's not very common to come across it.

A:Unexpected shutdown - Not sure the cause

Hello ppfollyout and welcome to Seven Forums. Sorry to hear you're having issues with your Vaio. Some experts will be along in just a while but in the meantime a few questions.
Do you remember what you were doing just before the BSOD?
Have you installed any new programs recently?
Have you been able to restart your computer since the shut down and if so, are you having any issues now?
What security program are you using?

Hi

I keep experiencing problems when i turn on my pc, sometimes it loads fine and then turns off automatically on its own. My system does not have any spyware viruses or other malicious form of infection. The PC no longer turns on as it says that a system file used to load the system is corrupt. I attempted to re-install windows XP and while i was in the middle of set-up the PC shut-down again. I have no idea of what the problem is but i can no longer turn on my pc properly because there is no operating system installed and when i attempt installation it turns off

any answers would be greatly appreciated.

as you may realise im using a different pc to ask the question

Many Thanks

Jamie

I've been getting the following error message over the past 2 days:

"This system is shutting down. Please save all work in progress and log off. Any unsaved changes will be lost. This shutdown initiated by NT Authority\System.

Windows must now restart because the DCOM Server Process Launcher Service terminated unexpectedly."

The computer then begins a 60 second countdown and then reboots.

I am using Windows XP Home Edition with Internet Explorer 7.0

None of my scanning programs (Norton AntiVirus, Registry Mechanic or AdWareAlert) is picking up anything.

Anyone have any ideas on what the problem might be?

Hello, don't know if anyone can help me. I am on a HP Pavilion Laptop running Windows Vista. I first encountered the error while running World of Warcraft. I log in, and after a few seconds the whole computer freezes up (no alt tabbing, unable to do anything). Then the screen screws up and nothing coherent is visible. Pretty much it looks like the old Static channels on non-digital TV's. The system then reboots and I get this error:

After rebooting a few times, the computer would then restart and receive a blue screen error before running any application, yielding in the same error upon restart. The blue screen did mention something about Display adapter, but I was unable to read more than that before restart.

With those things in consideration, my first thought is that it is my video card. However when I run any applications there is no lag, no screen tearing, and my computer is actually running very smoothly, until it crashes. I have updated all my drivers, ran Nortons, Windows Defender, and Spybot. I am stumped now.

OK so my problem is this - Rather Randomly, if I shutdown my computer, when I re-boot it goes to a blue screen with tons of writing on that I never have a chance to read and then goes into repair mode. When its done it says 'Windows recovered from an unexpected shutdown'.

It doesnt show any error messages before the reboot to indicate its had some kind of problem, only when its restarted. I get the 'Check online for problems' box after its fixed itself but even if I click yes to look nothing happens.

The only problem is in that I dont know why because whenever I do shut down the PC I do the Start Menu > Shutdown procedure and the Computer then shutsdown as it should & there is no indication of a problem until its restarted.

Its been happening for the last 4 weeks on and off and apart from the Techguy SySInfo tool I havent downloaded and installed any new programs, Vista updates have been installed as and when they are available. The only new info thats come in are Patches & Fixes for SW:tor.
I used the Tech.guy SysInfo to generate this:

A:Unexpected Shutdown.

In order to keep the blue-screen up long enough for you to read (and post at least some of what it says) you need to disable the automatic restart feature:

Open Control Panel & set it to Classic View.
Double-click the icon labelled System.
In the left pane, click Advanced System Settings.
In the Startup & Recovery section, click Settings.
Where it says Automatically restart. click inside the little box to remove the tick.
Click OK to save and close the dialog box.
Click OK to close the underlying dialog box, then close the Control Panel window.

Now, next time a blue-screen even is encountered, it will stay on the screen for you to read it's contents.
Please post what you can, in particular the capitalised error message at or near the top, together with the error codes.

Dear forum users,
Around 16 months ago I bought a brand new PC, bare bones system, AMD Athlon 64 x 2 dual core 6000+. All SATA II hardware/cables.
The first 8 / 10 months were fine. Fast and no problems. In the past 3 to 4 months my PC as a whole, just powers down, as if I was to hold the on/off button in for 5 or 7 seconds. It is kind of doing it almost every other day know. When I reboot I get a black screen stating the PC has shutdown unexpectedly and the option to restart in:
Safe mode / blur / blur / or normal start.
It does seem to only do this under certain conditions though, such as: When music is playing and or internet is running. On youtube and or MS office open as well. Generally speaking, when I ?Overwork? the PC or have multiple applications open that use media / sound / graphics, it happens.
I run complex CAD packages but it never seems to do it then. Generally, music (Windows Media running) and internet and it ?powers down?
Could it be a lack of power issue? Could it be an incompatibility on hardware, graphics card vs. processor or memory? Is it software related? I really don?t know where to start.
Any help would be much appreciated guys. Thanks heaps. Blueboy555.

From time to time my system (Vista64) shuts down - when IDLE - for no reason.
WIndows restarts and says: Windows recovered for an unexpected shutdown... error report send.

How to debug? Note that the system is idle; only background processes are running.

What I've done sofar:
- Ran extended memory test: no problem
- Disabled power saving settings (as I suspected a problem going into hibernate/sleep). No effect.
- Disabled all "user based processes" as Picasa, Google indexing, CPU-temp watcher etc..
- Removed all USB sticks (no readyboost anymore)

No help. I leave the system idle and 10minutes to 2hours later; bang; shutdown
Note also that the system never chrashed when I'm actually working.

So, not a severe issue but I feel intellectually challenged to get the thing under control.
Any idea's on how to proceed further?
Alfred

A:Unexpected shutdown

Try looking in schedule task. A task may be running when the computer is idle for a time limit.

Try looking in your error logs by;

Left Click on Start Menu.
Right click on Computer and choose manage.
Click on the event viewer.
You now have loads of options to try and pin down what is happening.
Expand the error tab.
Look for things in the last 24 hours.
