My laptop keeps turning itself off

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

Answer: 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?

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.

Answer: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

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.?
 

Answer: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...
Let us know what you can come up with.

I have a toshiba satellite c55d, and ever since I upgraded to windows 10 my laptop keeps turning on by itself every 3-4 hours whenever I close to lid for it to go to sleep mode. I checked everything and everything came out fine. My bios setting was correct as well. Only thing I found was it said "critical battery level", but I always have my battery out and laptop plugged in directly. I tried putting the battery in and not charging and same thing happens. I am not sure what to do anymore. Any help will be great. Thanks

Not sure if it helps, but my laptop does exactly the same. (At least you are not alone... ) I have mine hibernate when I close the lid and it behaves just as you describe. I think it does this by design. If it worries you, try actually closing it down (switching it off). Because Win 10 boots quicker than most previous versions, this is not as big a deal as it once was.

Hi. I am experiencing a problem with my Dell Inspiron N4010.  It is not turning on,  even the power button's light doesn't turn on when I press it, but the charging light on the laptop pad still turns on when I put it on charging. I have tried with the power flea method of removing battery and adapter and pressing the power button and re+connecting it to turn it on, but nothing works. There is no beeping or any sort of sound in the laptop either. Please tell me how to switch it on.
Thanks

Answer:Laptop not turning on

Remove the battery and see if it'll power up.  If it will, the battery is faulty and will need to be replaced.
If it won't, the mainboard is bad.

Any time I am doing anything graphically intensive, my LCD likes to just turn itself off. It happens regardless of whether or not I'm playing a game, or just surfing the web, although it seems to happen much more often during a game. I am not sure if this could possibly be the actual LCD screen itself or maybe the video card? I'm not sure. The only fix I have found for it is to shut the lid and open it again. Sometimes it fixes it for awhile, sometimes only for a second or two. I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate, 2gb RAM with an ATI Mobility 512MB X1700...yes, one of the only cards with absolutely no drivers for it. Good pick on my part...TIA

Figured out it was a laptop when you said:  "...shut the lid and open it again..."http://www.computerhope.com/forum/index.php/topic,33328.0.html?List as much about your computer as possible. This includes operating system (what version of Windows you are using), service packs, computer make/model, RAM, hard drive, sound and video cards, current adware/spyware/virus programs being used on a regular basis, do you have a "real" Windows CD, etc.

When I push the power button the Green light turns on and then I hear a little "Hissh" sound, then the computer turns off in a second. After a few seconds same thing happens. As if, the laptop is trying to turn on, but for some reason, it can't. It tries on and on but nothing happens.The first time it occured, the laptop usually turned on after 1-2 hours of this continuous struggle, but now, it's not turning on at all. Things I did so far -1. Took out the battery, left it without battery and un-plugged for 10-12 minutes.2. Took out the battery and plug, and pushed the power button for 30 seconds to upto 10 minutes various times, tried to start with both "without battery+plugged-in" and "with battery+un-plugged".3. Pushed the Battery Re-set button on the back for 4 seconds. Things I didn't do yet -1. Pulling out the RAM stick2. Flashing the bios Any insight will be greatly appreciated.

When I press the power on button nothing happens - no lights, no noise, nothing. I've left it on charge for several hours but still nothing.
I have tried the static discharge test (remove battery, press power button etc) and still no luck.

Hi Jomar,
Good work on troubleshooting. I would suggest you reseat a few components, like memory, hard drive and optical drive and see if that makes a difference. In the link below punch in the system service tag or express service code and you can access the user manual for removing and reseating components.

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.

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.

Answer: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.

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, I recently put a Thread on here asking what could cause my laptop to have no power on a morning when it had full power the night before, I just found out last night. I was in bed when an odd noise woke me up, I went towards my desk and my laptop CD drive was spinning so I popped up the screen and the laptop had turned itself on.
This only happens when I hibernate the laptop, but doesn't do it when I completely shut down. I dont want to completely shut down all the time because Hibernate turns on faster, but I dont want my laptop to turn on all the time.
The laptop only turns on during the night on its own and not during the day. I dont have it plugged into the main when it does this, or into a network.

The worst thing is that it is usually in my laptop bag on a night when it does this which is really bad because it could overheat, so please, does anyone know what can cause this problem.
Thanks

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.

Had the same issue after upgrading from 8.1 > 10.  After the install I shut down the machine and 50 minutes later it still said 'Shutting Down'  I held the power button to hard restart and then it would not power up at all.  Power LED sign just flashes. Since you can't get at the battery on a Flex I waited for 6 days for the battery to die (power cable removed of course). Once dead, I reconnected the power and it booted up fine. Not sure of the issue but having read other posts it usually resolves itself once the battery is dead..............

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.

Answer: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

Answer: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).

Hi,My dad's laptop is not turning on at all. The on/off light turns on for about 10 seconds then turns off, and the fans or drives do not start up at all. The monitor does not come on at all, either. In addition, the caps lock light flashes on and off 10 times. After this, it stops completely.It is plugged in at the mains, and the battery is still charged, or at least it was when my dad last turned it off.. The laptop is a Dell Inspiron 1300.Thanks in advance,Barney

Answer:Laptop not turning on.

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.

Auto-reboot disable:When Running windows and it crashes you will get a blue screen and it will automatically restart, often it will restart too fast for you to see the error message. To disable auto restart on system failure, so you can see the error message.1. Go to Start -> Control Panel -> System (Windows+Pause works, too)2. Go to Advanced3. Under the Startup and Recovery section, click Settings...4. Under System Failure un-check "Automatically restart"

Hello! My laptop has stopped booting up. let me go back about a year ago, to when it still worked. I dropped it, and broke the screen, and like anyone else, hooked up a monitor. I used it like that for a couple months, only a couple times though. It eventually had trouble turning on. It would show the charging lights and stuff, and sometimes turn on, other times it would sit there and not display anything(on the monitor). I had to turn it off and back on again and again, hoping it would boot up. Now, it never boots up. I don't think there is a charger problem. I wondered if it was the hard drive, and hooked it up to my pc. It displayed an error, and wouldn't start, so I started in safe mode. it worked, but you can't do anything, really, in safe mode(ps can I wipe it in safe mode without removing windows?). I don't know if there is a short circuit or anything. Please help me!Info:laptop: Sony vaio VGN CS220j OS: Windows 7please ask for any pictures or infothank you!

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?

Hard to believe software could break the machine like that.

Hello,
I am having an issue on my Inspiron 15 where my cooling fan doesnt always start up. For example, ill start up the laptop, and start web browsing or playing a game, and the fan will never turn on. I have had it overheat and shut off a few times. But if i restart the laptop manually (start>power>restart), it will spin up automatically as it should. But then after a few more restarts, i will have a session where the fan will never turn on. Right now my only solution, besides a restart, is to use the program Speedfan, and ramp the fans to 100%. Does anyone know why its doing this? My other Inspiron 15, running a Broadwell i7 and Windows 10, has no issues at all.

Thanks for your time,
Thanatar

Hi, I have a Dell Inspiron 1545 which I had for about two years. My operating system is Windows Vista. For the last 7 months I had a pop up saying that my battery is coming to end of its life and I should order a new one. However, at this this point I carried on as normal and may laptop was working completely fine. However about a month ago my laptop just would not turn on even though it's plugged in and my charger has the blue light on. There is no sound, no light or anything, just does not turn on at all. Then after a week it suddenly did and it worked completely fine. When I tried to turn it on the following day it did not turn on. I then ordered a new Anker battery compatible with Dell Inspiron 1545 and my laptop worked completely fine for about one week. But now I am having the same problem when 50% of the time it would not turn on but the other 50% it does work. Also am not sure if I am being paranoid but when my laptop does turn on I feel as if my laptop is quite hot. In addition, whenever i use my laptop I always have it plugged in, i hardly use it as portable.

Thank you
Much Appreciated
 

Answer:Laptop sometimes not turning on

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.

Hello TF people.
Okay this problem has happened once before and happened again today. I disconnected my laptop from the charger and worked on it with battery, then battery run out of juice so I went to plug in the laptop to the charger and continued working on it, but it turned off after a few minutes.
I turned it on again multiple times, it turned off just after seconds from going into the desktop every time ( it never lasted a minute on desktop )
I unplugged the battery and turned on with the charged multiple times, it turned off again.
I then turned it on with charger alone and it worked now.
Btw in the previous time it occured, I'm not sure if it happened all of a sudden or I unplugged the battery first just like this time.
This problem happened only after the re-installation of Windows XP on my laptop. What could be the problem?
Help appreciated. Thanks.
P.S : In the middle of my attempts of trial with charger and battery ( before the laptop worked normally again ), I turned on the laptop with the battery only and it worked.

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!

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

Answer:Laptop Keeps turning off after getting hot

Some older laptops are known to run hot at the bottom. Sometimes it is because the battery charger circuitry is trying to charge a weak or troubled battery and also power the laptop at the same time to its power demands.So questions i have is, is the battery healthy to where it can run for quite a while without being plugged into an outlet? And have you been able to run this laptop directly without battery installed only off of the ac wall adapter powering it to see if it runs cooler at the bottom of it with the battery missing?

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
 

Answer: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

Otherwise Yes, hardware issue, with connector or adaptor

Answer:My laptop is not turning on

Unplug the system, remove or disconnect the battery, and hold the power button for 30 sec.  Remove and reinstall both memory modules.  Power up on AC only - if it will, but won't with the battery in place, the battery is faulty and will need to be replaced.  If it still won't power up, the mainboard is bad - on a system of this age, it likely would be better to start thinking about a replacement system.

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.

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.

Disconnect all peripherals and the ac adapter from the system, remove the battery out and then hold down the power button for about 30 seconds to release the flea power. Connect only the ac adapter to the system and then power on the system, check if the light remains on the ac adapter when it is connected to the system or goes off.

Answer: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.

I can't figure out what"s the issue and how to fix it forever? Kindly guide me

Answer:laptop not turning on

In the other three times, I did not put my laptop on sleep mode. It just did not switch on when power button is pressed. Too worried.

Removing the battery and charger holding the power button for 20 seconds and then if I plug in just the charger(adapter) then there is no charging light and the laptop still not switching on. I also tried NOVI button it's just displaying Lenovo and getting switched off. Kindly help me as soon as possible. Thank you

I turn my laptop off in the evening (Usualy to Hibernate). I get up in the morning and its off. I get home in the afternoon and its on. Now this has happened a lot. Its realy easy to tell when computers on or off as the TV tuner has a big bright blue light.

Now either i have a ghost or my laptop is turning itself on some time during the day.

Question: Turning laptop off

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.

Thanks
jack

Answer: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.

I have a Gateway M305 laptop and I used to be able to press the power button and my laptop would turn on immediately, but all of a sudden it stop turning on right away. I have to press the power button from anywhere between 10 sec to 1 min before it turns on. This happens whether the AC adapter is connected or not. The light does turn on anytime my AC adapter is connected. Once my laptop does finally turn on it works perfectly so I don't won't just get rid of it since it still works great once it is on. I'm just afraid that at some point it is just not going to turn on. I also noticed that it takes longer to turn on when it's been off for a while. If I turn it off and let a min or two go by and then press the power button it turns on almost right away but still not like it used to. Please help.

I know the method for fixing a laptop that does not turn on is to remove the battery unplug power tap or hold the power button plug into power turn on then replace battery. Works everytime but it happens almost everytime on my Acer with Windows 7. I have tried holding the power button for 30 seconds, 60 seconds and what seemed like forever but it still happens again. How can I fix this?
