Hello,
I would like to know why did my laptop suddenly switched everything off, that is CPU fan stopped and screen was off. My computer is not quiet when it is on, but everthing at that time was quite. The light at the main power switch is still on, so does the light to show power is still supplying the battery. So I had to power off at main switch, with no noise and light shown off.
The day after I can still still boot up and use the computer normally, like now. I wish to know if it is a symptom to future problem with my hard drives, or with my mother board.
Thank you in advance for your help.

Hello,

Try this 1

Overheating will also results in such problems.

Clean all the vents, blow out with canned air.

Remove the power adapter and the battery from your laptop. Open the laptop

case to access the CPU Fan and the heat sink. Remove all the dust from the Fan

and also from the heat sink. Never run your laptop on bag & bed. Sides, back and

bottom must be clear.

If possible remove the old thermal paste from the CPU and apply a new thermal

paste for better heat conductivity.

Good Luck
