unexpected windows shutdown
Hope you can help. I have had 4 unexpected Windows shutdowns this week, none before. The only change that I recall was updating / installing a new version of Lavasoft Ad-Aware. I have uninstalled it entirely but still had 2 shutdowns since then. Not knowing what might help you, I have attached a Hi-Jack log. Thanks

I read another thread in Windows 7 forum where he too is experiencing shutdowns. The TechGuy suggested that this guy's cooling fan may be not working. I have since been monitoring my fan and it seems to be functioning well. It cycles on once every minute or two.It runs for about 10 seconds. It is quiet and heat comes out the side. I have been feeling around the laptop frequently and have not felt any heat buildup anywhere.

Interesting. So I looked up video card overheating a laptop and sure enough it can turn it off. So I loaded something called Core Temp 1.0. Not that I understand this stuff, but here are the current readings : TJ Max 221 F ; 115 F.

core # 0 113 F (Min) and 117 F (max) ; load 4 %
same readings for core # 1 ; load 6 %

This app also lets me enable overheat protection and I can set the parameters. Currently the default is 194 F. I did not enable this function.

Not sure if this app creates a log of temps. It has something called a register dump which looks like a log but I cannot make heads or tails of this.

Note : most of the people having this problem seem to be gamers. I do not do games at all.

I would like to make sure that the laptop is overheating before taking it to a shop as I feel no hot spots and the fan works fine - is there an app that you can recommend that would monitor the temps ?

so I loaded another app call SpeedFan. I have been monitoring the temps. As the Temp1 gets to 126, the fan kicks in and the temp drops immediately to 117 and the fan shuts down. This has repeated itself all day today.

Is it possible that the cause of my shutdowns is not due to excess heat ??

One more thing ...... these unexpected shutdowns alway occur when the laptop is asleep. There is no overheating when asleep, so maybe there is another problem that is being overlooked ?? Can someone respond, thanks

So it has been two weeks and I still get the occasional shutdown. I have now noticed a pattern. Again, if it goes to sleep, that is when it may shut down...... never when I am it using it ; also - if I close the screen, but leave the laptop on, the laptop goes into sleep mode AND when I re-open the screen, on several occasions, the laptop never comes out of sleep mode. I actually had to remove the battery to force a reboot.

Rather than a overheat problem, do I instead have a mechanical problem ?

I have changed the power settings so that it never goes into sleep mode, and I stopped closing the screen. So far I have not had a shut down for 2 days.

Perhaps we should move this thread to a hardware forum. I appreciate the advice from johnebadbak and marbski, but there is no overheating problem here. This laptop is running 3 days now after I changed the power settings to Never Go to Sleep. As long as we do not close the cover / screen, this baby works just fine. It is waking from sleep mode that is the problem.

It can't be overheating as I am now one month without an unexpected shutdown as long as I keep the laptop awake .....So why what would cause my laptop to turn off if I fold down the screen or let it go to sleep mode ?

Do you always fold down the screen to go sleep mode? Or have you tried having it on sleep mode without the cover being closed down?

Actually, I encountered the problem weeks ago when the power setting was set for sleep after 20 minutes or so.i would come back and discovered it turned off, but not always. So I set it to never go to sleep. And the problem went away. But then one day, my wife closed the cover and I came back to find it off, not sleeping. So now we never close the cover, have the setting at 'never go to sleep' and the laptop is working just fine. ( Not over heating, which was suggested in the earlier posts by TechSupportGuys as a possible cause)

So going into sleep mode means 'turn off' to my laptop (but not every time) .
