i have a hp mini-100 That i like to hook up to my tv via a device that allows me to stream video and such. IT was working great for a long while but now it has the nasty habit of shutting down about thirty minutes or so into a video. I dont have this issue watching videos just on my computers screen. what could cause this issue?

Make sure you have the Power plugged into your laptop.

Then make sure you don't have idle switched onto 30minutes in power saving mode because this could change settings to do with standby etc...

If it's completely shutting down maybe try updating all your drivers especially your gfx drivers.

Ugh, all i can really suggest... if that doesn't work wait for a mod to answer :)

i changed the power saving mode..i also reset the standby mode to three hours. also reset the screensaver even. i guess I typed wrong when i said "shut down totally" i guess i meant to say the screen went totally blank. still had sound from the video that was playing though...sorry. .and thank you for your response I am totally stumped here. :)

Try toggling between screens by pressing the Fn and one of the F1 to F12 keys (possibly F5)
It is possible the inverter or back light has failed, shine a flashlight into the screen and look closely, can you see any images in the background, another possible cause may be the MB to screen video ribbon has become damaged or detached.
