Hi pipz! My laptop recently experiencing frequent shutdown of windows, almost 3 times a day. I observed it happens every time I'm online while watching movies on it. Before the shutdown happens, I noticed some parts of my laptop is very hot, especially the part near the battery at the bottom.

Your advise is appreciated.

A problem has been detected, and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

Hi, your laptops shuts down frequently maybe it is overheated, since you mention it became hot on the bottom of your laptop. The causes of this is the vents is taken by the dust and the fan of your laptop is not performing correctly, just make sure to put your laptop on a hard and flat surface, Once done you need to vacuum the vent to remove dust inside, Just vacuum it once in while, I know it sounds a little bit funny, but it actually works for me, you might also want to download a software that controls you fan and will tell you the temperature of your laptop.

Hello Larry76.

Based on your observation, it certainly seems the problem is your system overheating.  Watching movies whether from YouTube or from Media Players (Windows Media Player, KMPlayer, VLC Player, etc.) is somewhat CPU-intensive and will really cause your processor to heat up.  Here's what I can suggest:

  1. Make sure all ventilation holes of your laptop are free from any obstruction.  Always place it on a solid stable surface and never on thick cloth or a carpeted floor.  Place something underneath it that will prop up the laptop giving it's bottom ventilation room to breathe.
  2. Get a small fan and point it the laptop during movie playback.  This will help circulate the air around the machine.  Some stores sell laptop cooling pads/tables that have fans positioned underneath the laptop.
  3. If your laptop does not have ventilation problems but the problem still persists, go to a qualified service center and have them look at your laptop.  It may be time to re-seat the heatsink and fan and replace the thermal paste or simply time to do some cleaning of the insides of your machine.

Hope this helps.
