Preferred Solution: My Laptop keeps turning off every 10-20 minutes

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: My Laptop keeps turning off every 10-20 minutes

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.

Both softwares can be download here at Techspot. Under downloads.

A friend of my brother accidentally broke his Laptop the other day, and I'm trying to see if there's anything I can do to repair it. I'm not exactly sure what he did, but when he broke it, it apparently broke the monitor and killed the hard drive. Replacing the hard drive isn't that big of a deal, and he says he doesn't mind using an external monitor for it (though the monitor does still work, though it has a large crack through it now... which you can see here http://i371.photobucket.com/albums/oo151/Superbark/Photo-0009.jpg ).

Unfortunately, whenever I try to turn on the computer and run some things like diagnostics and whatnot, the computer keeps randomly shutting down. I think the fan is still working (since I can hear it), so I don't think it is overheating or anything (I could be wrong though, but the bottom never feels scolding hot or anything). Here's the strange thing though; whenever I plug in the Laptop and I have the battery in, the computer will turn on just fine (though it will shut down in a couple of minutes, like I mentioned up above). If I try to turn it on when the battery is out, but still plugged into the wall... it won't turn on. If it is not plugged in, but the battery is placed in, it'll turn on (then shut down in a minute or so). If I have both the battery in and have the Laptop plugged into the wall, then I remove the battery... it'll still work, but still shut down again in a few minutes. What'... Read more

Hi All, A couple of weeks ago we have a strange behavior with our Lenovo Flex 2 Pro. The notebook is turning off at exact 30 minutes, in the BIOS or in Windows this is make no differents.Now i googled a lot and found a lot of the same problem and all replaced the mainboard. I hope offcourse that we don't need to do that because the mainboard is around 350 dollar. Specs of the notebook:Lenovo Flex 2 Pro 80FL (I7-4510U) Already tried:- BIOS updated- BIOS resetted- Intel ME Firmware upgraded- Windows repair - Virusscan + Malware- Monitored the heat of the laptop- Replaced the cooling paste to be sure of the CPU and GPU- Removed a lot of components to test what the problem is (SSD, Audio, SD reader, Battery, CMOS battery) Hope one of you have a solution.

Hey BP

Is there a utility to stop my monitor from turning off after a certain of minutes?

i know i can change the power options to never but its hassle

any body know off any?

A:How to stop the display from turning off after a certain minutes

I believe that you are refering to the screensaver that clicks in after x amount of minutes.Go to control panel,click on personalisation,click on screen saver.Their you will see a wait till probably ten minutes.Alter it to what you want.I have mine at twenty but the option is yours.This was more for the older type of monitors to prevent a image being burnt into the screen.

Hope thats what you are refering to.

First of all:
1. This computer has NO VIRUSES and NO WAREZ and NO INTERNET EXPOSURE.
2. This is not a laptop.
3. My Brother from Michigan sent it to me by mail, and I am guessing that is the reason this computer is so ****ed up.

Ok, well this is a very expensive computer (would be able to play half life 2). And well, after my brother sent me it (by mail), it seems to act like a god damn 80 GB Ipod (low battery life in under 1 hour etc.....). But of course, I plug in the device with all sorts of computer cables, and the same results happen. After a few minutes the god damn computer turns off!

When I set it to 115 V this happens!
(BUT I HEAR A REPETITIOUS BEEPING NOISE)

So I set it to 230 V and well the BEEPING miraculously disappears! But then the monitor doesn't turn on.

*****!!!!!!! I am so mad!!!!!! And I am not a computer genius.

PLEASE DO NOT ASK ME WHY HE SENT IT BY EMAIL. IT WAS MY REQUEST and WELL I WAS SUCH A DUMB*** FOR TELLING HIM TO DO THAT.

Can somebody help me resolve this?
Do I need a new powerbox?

Hi,

I know this has been asked a million times on the web already but its seriouslly annoying me now.

Windows 7 Ultimate (x64) keeps turning the monitor off after 15 Mins of in-activity.

However - before it does that at 14 Mins and 30 Seconds it sorta does a quick flash - then at exactlly 15 mins does the turning off.

All the power options are set to Never. (I have even created my own power plan for this)

I have never had this problem on this PC before - this is a new install - and since then it has been doing this.

(That makes me reluctant to think its the BIOS or Video Card)

Any ideas would be most welcome?

Thank you in advance.

I have recently done a system restore to a factory state. After reinstalling all of the programs I noticed that right after restarting my computer it actually is pretty fast, which can be especially seen by rght clicking on desktop or opening folders. However, few minutes after running it suddenly slows down simple things like right clicking on the desktop make me wait few seconds. Right now my computer has been running for few minutes already and I can see the text lagging a little as I type.
I have Avast, and I did a quick scan with malwarebytes just to make sure, but it didn't detect anything.
When I check the task manager I noticed that before it starts lagging, the CPU is below 10% if im not doing anything and even when when using some programs its pretty much always below 60%, however after it starts lagging, it jumps to 100% if I do as simple things as right click. I disabled most start up programs, but it didn't help. Any help would be appreciated.

***UPDATE***
I began to suspect overheating and so I decided to clean out the fan. So far no problems with lag anymore. ^^

I am running Windows 10 Professional 64 bit. Whenever I set the option "Turn off the display" to "Never", it reverts back to the default "15 minutes". This is under the "High Performance" profile. I have never, since Windows 3.11, ever had a setting change itself back. I have tried to change it and restart. It will either revert upon restart or shortly after. It will revert back even if I do not restart.

A:Power Option for "Turning off display" remains at "15 minutes"

That sounds like my problem - I leave the computer for an hour and it is shut down (I think sleep mode). I just need to hit the power button and it comes on to where it was when I left - but 2 of my USB devices are lost so I have to restart the computer anyway.

I changed all the power settings to NEVER. But his doesn't seem to make any difference......

I have a Dell Inspiron 15r 5520

It all started last Friday when the dreaded "Plugged in, not charging" happened. Little by little I had the laptop plugged in and eventually the computer just failed to work. I opened it up and pulled out the Ac/dc power jack and low and behold a port wire is broken, so I replaced it.

I also tried to turn it on after that, then I found out the Power Button was broken, so I replaced that.

After replacing all of that the Laptop refuses to turn on. 
I do have a charger on the way and now I'm wandering: Should I have the charger plugged into the computer while I wait for the other one to show up, or should I keep it in and attempt to charge my battery?

My lights for anything will not turn on at all, so I'm also wandering if the motherboard is dead? It would be a shame if it is since I just purchased a replacement last summer.

Facts:
1. Charger stopped charging and became a plugged in not charging
2. Replaced Power Button and broken Ac/dc powerjack 
3. Computer fails to turn on 
4. No lights down at the 4 light panels even when charger is plugged in.

Thank you in advance if you are able to assist me in this issue.

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.

A:HP laptop not turning on

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.

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?

Hi,

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.

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.

Hi,
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.

Sir, I have Dell Inspiron N5010 15R. It's battery has already exhausted and won't charge. I use it fully on power supply. Yesterday I shut it down properly but now it's not turning on. Only shows LED glowing. But no sound no display even if left as it for 15 minutes and immediately turns off if power button is pressed.  I tried starting through removing alternate RAM but that too didn't work. Also tried to start it after removing the battery but of no use. Please kindly suggest a solution.

A:Laptop not turning on

Hi ANKITRAIKY,
Is there any damage on the system? Could you test with another power adapter if possible?
Press and hold the fn key + power button to turn on the system and it should initiate the diagnostics - check for any possible beep codes.
Disconnect the adapter and battery and press and hold the power button for 30 seconds to release any static power. Then test the system with the adapter only / battery only.
Remove both memory modules / HDD and power on the system and check if it detects the absence of memory modules.
If nothing works, I would suspect a motherboard fault.
You could contact our team to get a quote for a paid service call - http://dell.to/1vnT6CQ
Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private message with the service tag and your Name for case records.

Hi,
I have Dell Inspiron 15 - 3521,
The problem is, it's not turning on, no beep from any part of the computer.
However, it shows the charging light when connected to the charger.
I have tried the draining out battery by pressing power button for 30 seconds trick.
The result is still the same.
It's not turning on.
Plz assist.

Hi, my laptop is having this same issue. But now it goes off immediately after I turn it on. Here are the HWmonitor readings on high performance. its a Hp probook 4330s, switchable graphics, intel and amd; but the amd hasn't functioned for about 1.5 years now since the hard drive that came with it crashed. installing the drivers just makes windows not boot.
 

A:My laptop keeps turning itself off

The motherboard has probably failed...

hey guys I am trying to diagnose a problem with my old laptop that I am going to start using again and when I try to turn it on it will not turn on its a Toshiba L455D-S5976 all the indicator lights come on just fine, my question is did the hard drive go out or is it another problem and I will note that the battery in this machine no longer holds a charge you have to keep it plugged in all the time and I kept getting the blue screen everytime I tried to use Windows and if its the hard drive I will be replacing It and ordering recovery media from Toshiba

A:Laptop not turning on

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

REINSTALL

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.
