Postby Smithy8831 » Sun Jan 13, 2013 1:56 pm

Hey guys, I have abit of an issue with my laptop...It suddenly shuts off and wont turn back on. When it goes off and I hit the power button its starts up for 10 seconds but i dont get any of the hdd noises just the fan kicking in and then it turns off again. Not even the screen comes on. It has only recently happpend but mainly i noticed it after i put the computer to sleep or turn it off it happens ?? I have checked the event logs but the only 2 things I can see are this one and the nvidea driver?? Anybody have any ideas? any help would be much appreciated.

Anytime I have seen this type of behavior, it always turned out to be a bad PSU.

No, more likely the battery. But if you run on the charger alone, then perhaps.

The only other thing I can think of would be the CPU getting overheated. Have you run any temperature checks on it?

I would suggest give laptop a quick discharge first as following:
1. remove all power sources including the power adapter and battery
2. pressing the power button over 20 seconds do not let go
3. Then connect only power adapter charger, power on the laptop again.

Also, try remove the RAMs and power on as well, hear if there is any beep sounds.
Most shut off may cause by the overheated CPU, check the heatsink, reseat CPU and replace the thermal paste are good try as well. Check the CPU fan speed.

Hope this helps.
