Sounds very much like a heat-related problem ...

by OldER Mycroft In reply to help my laptop stopped

Your laptop is shutting off before excess heat can damage the CPU and other components.

Check what you have it sitting on - there MUST be a clear path below it for fresh air to get sucked in by the fans.

Check the fans - can you hear them start up during those first few seconds of power? If not, you will need the laptop repaired by a qualified technician capable of dismantling a laptop.

If the fans can be heard, check the exhaust port - can you feel hot air being expelled from it? If not, the same applies as above.

If you can feel hot air, you should check that the fans and the ventilation ports are not clogged up with dust, fluff, bits of debris. These ventilation ports need to be clear at all times.

You can buy compressed air in a can like an aerosol (it comes with a little plastic straw for aiming the flow of air more easily). You can **** the ventilation ports with the compressed air to help in shifting bits of fluff that might have got in and blocked the flow of air.

Try this

by Jacky Howe In reply to help my laptop stopped

I would give the inside of the case a blowout with compressed air. When blowing air through the fans make sure that you physically stop them from spinning, as they may generate power and **** something up. Remembering to ground yourself by placing the back of your hand on the Power Supply Unit or a metal part on the PC and not moving your feet. By not taking this precaution it is possible that you could inadvertantly cause damage to the PC from an electrostatic discharge. Then remove the Heatsink, giving it a thorough clean and reseat the CPU applying new CPU grease. If the Fans spin freely when you give them a spin they are probably OK. If there is resistance replace them.

Clean the Cooling Vents

Depending on the model, vents can be found on the side, back, and/or bottom of the notebook PC. These vents allow air to flow through the PC and keep it cool. Buildup inside these vents impedes the cooling process.

Clean I/O Ports

The back of the notebook PC has a series of ports. After cleaning the cooling vents, take the compressed air and **** out any debris that may have accumulated in and around these ports.

Clean the golden edge of each memory stick with a soft rubber/eraser, remembering not to touch the golden edge of the memory stick. Check with one stick at a time, remembering to disconnect the power from the PC.

And always set your laptop on a hard surface

not your your couch or similar, as this ca block vents (and is a source of lint/dust).

This could also be related to available power

by OH Smeg In reply to help my laptop stopped

If you use this NB a lot and move it around quite a bit the Power jack can become dislodged from the M'Board and require re soldering.

If that is the case here the NB needs to be taken to a Authorized repairer for repairs but when this happens the NB runs off the Battery till the Battery gets so flat that it can not longer provide enough power for thew ancillary bits like Fans so it shuts off completely.

If however it is cycling through a start stop it has to be Heat related so either a blocked Air Intake or the CPU's Heatsink has been blocked completely with Dust and Lint. This requires a proper clean out if that is the case as Canned Air can not properly clean the Heatsink from the Outside. It is also possible that the Fan has failed as well and if that is the case it needs to be repaired by a Qualified Technician.

When you get this working again always use a Cool Pad under it to prevent dust and other crud getting sucked in and any uneven surface that it is placed on from blocking the Air Intakes. You can use a Cool Pad like the one here which has 2 fans in it and helps to keep the Cooling Passages of the NB clear of dust and lint build ups.
