Hello sillyces & welcome to GTG !

In order for us to help assist you , may you please supply more details about your computer/machine

More system spec's would be good , and the make / name of the manufacture of the computer

Click on Start > right click on " My Computer " then select properties , ensure the "general " tab is selected

please type in next reply what is in the "system " section and any other infromation ( dont worry about the " Registered to " section ) but include the details below that " computer" i think...

Thank you

BTW

Your BIOS may have setting's to shutdown the computer at a certain / pre-set tempterature ( it should warn you by some sort of sequence of beep's , before shutting down ( or at a reasonably high temperature )

And if thats the case... i recommend cleaning the fans inside your computer ( if you wish to do this please inform us so we can inform you of what to watch out for ) , bare in mind you must be earthed out/ de-energised / NOT CHARGED before touching any circuitry ( many of these circuits and many components in the computer such as the RAM modules are electrostatic sensitive )

Thank you once again for your patience

Anthony19

What do you mean by cleaning?
Are doing something particular, when it turns off?
How long does it stay up?

i had it checked at HP service center here, the made thorough diagnosis on the laptop and didnt find any problem, they cleaned the inside part of the laptop because they had to replace the keyboard...

sometimes it turns off while im running a full scan, using the internet, playing games.... etc.

it really depends, sometimes when im scanning for viruses, it stays up around 20 mins.
when i use my messenger, usually lasts for hours.
when i play takes around less then 15 mins..
and sometimes after it turns off and i turn it back on again, it just loads the start up programs then turns off again...

could it be a virus? :)

Download, and install SpeedFan: http://www.almico.com/sfdownload.php
Post your computer temperatures:

Check the temps while computer is idle, keep SpeedFan open, and see, if the temps change, when you're using the laptop.

It seems pretty hot, even for a laptop.
Can you play some game, and watch those temps at the same time?
