Acer :: Laptop Shuts Down While Playing Games

May 3, 2009

I have an Aspire 1694wlmi with a 2GHz Pentium M, a Mobility Radeon x700 (256mb) and 1GB of ram. I run Win XP with SP3. I didn't do anything to the comp apart from removing its crappy built-in wlan adapter.

The issue is this: whenever I play any game (even as undemanding as UT99) the laptop just shuts down without warning. This even happens playing 8ballclub's billiards sim in window mode for instance.

The whole thing started happening occasionally a long time ago (with Rome Total War at first). Right now, it happens always and very very soon after starting the game (i.e. less than a minute).

I have noticed that the CPU usage jumps to 100% as soon as I launch the game and stays there until shutdown (but this is supposed to be normal, yes?). Also, I tried stopping all non-essential processes (of which there weren't that many to begin with) and the CPU usage is around 0-4% when idle.

I have also opened the lid and look for dust - none there (neither around the processor nor around the graphics adapter)

I tried updating the ATI drivers, but since the Radeon is included in all Acers, it won't let you update the drivers - and Acer doesn't provide updates either. I have installed the Catalyst Control Center...

People have associated such problems with viruses. I use Avast which finds no viruses (I'm installing Kaspersky next).

Dell :: XPS 1530 Shuts Off When 'playing' Game On Battery Power

Jan 18, 2009

I say 'playing' because I never actually get there. Say, Im on the train, and I'll want to play something.. Assassins Creed. I load it up, loading screen is fine, the little video opening is fine, as soon as it comes to actually rendering the graphics it jsut turns itself off. I plug it in at home and it runs beautifully, but as soon as I unplug that power cable, the whole thing just turns off.

It reports a windows error after this, but there is nothing in the error log telling me what shut it down. I KNOW this isn't overheating because I can play it fine on power and although it gets hot when playing gfx intense games it has never turned itself offdue to that.

The games I can play on battery are WoW and Cimcity 4 and audiosurf (although that lags alot on battery :) xD

The games I cannot are Assassins Creed and Devil may Cry 4.

Is this a power issue?

I have tried on multiple power settings and it still likes to turn off when I want to play these games. It may be a GPU power issue?

Dell :: Win 7 Crashes While Playing Games

Dec 6, 2009

Ever since I installed Windows 7, every time I try running a game that I could play just fine before installing Windows 7, such as Rome: Total War, my computer crashes when I actually start playing the game (as in I can see the map and I tell one dude to move and then the game crashes).

When I say it crashes I mean that the screen turns black but the computer is still running and the fan is on and whatnot, but I am unable to make the computer do anything and I have no choice but to hold down the power button to manually shut off the computer.

Sony :: FW Series Crashes While Playing 3D Games

Sep 9, 2009

My Vaio crashes while playing 3D intensive games like, L4D, Crysis, Crysis Warhead, CoD WaW. After playing about 1~2 hours or so.

No other application causing this, so I suspect the GPU. Here are the details:

Symptoms:Screen quickly fades out to either dark grayish black, or white.Some scratchy sounds on the background.Barely visible waves moving upside-down on the screen (like when you cannot get a clear signal on TV).2 or 3 vertical thin noises on the screen.Cannot exit to desktop, have to cold boot the PC

Specs: Sony Vaio VGN-FW93XS 16.4"Core2Duo T9900 3.06 GhzATI Radeon Mobility HD 4650 1GB (with the latest Catalyst drivers installed)4 GB RamDirectX 10Vista Home Premium x64
Other info:GPU temp before gaming: 45~50, during gaming: 68~75 CelsiusCPU temp before gaming: 35~40, during gaming: 65~70 CelsiusPlaying with high settings (e.g. "Gamer" in Crysis) with no performance issues whatsoever until crash.From what I gathered, those temps are not way too high, and the PC should hold well.

Dell :: M1730 Running Very Slow+hot When Playing Games?

I've taken apart from 1730 and made sure there was no dust and its quite clean, its sitting up at the back so air is flowing through under it but when playing games all on low settings (playing demigod)

it still slows down when a lot is happening on screen, and the laptop gets extremely hot - even some parts are too hot to touch.

HP/Compaq :: Graphic When Playing Games OnPavilion Dv4-1220us

Jun 19, 2009

I recently purchased an HP Pavilion DV4-1220us, and right off the bat, I noticed strange problems when playing games. After a while, things get distorted and pixelated. So, I downloaded HWMonitor, and I noticed that the higher the temps get, the worse the graphical problems become.

I found this website, and went to undervolt my CPU. Long story short, the stock voltages were 1.125 V, which seemed weird to me. I was able to undervolt it by quite a lot and still not have it BSOD. Under a full load from ORTHOS, I saw a reduction from 90C down to 80C, but when I play games, I don't get that much of a decrease. Before, when gaming it would hover around 80C, and now it hovers around 75C. That's still a pretty decent decrease, but the graphical glitches continue to happen, albeit a bit less noticeably.

I opened up CPU-Z, and I noticed that whether it's undervolted or not, the voltage keeps switching back and forth between what it's set at, and 1.20 V. I've heard from a few other users that they've seen this as well.

Could this voltage fluctuation have anything to do with the graphical glitches?

Has anyone else with my GPU experienced the same problems?

Dell Inspiron 7520 :: (15R Special Edition) Freezes While Playing Games

Dec 6, 2014

My laptop has been freezing for a while, and it would create a distinct buzzing noise about 10-20 minutes into a game. It originally started when my motherboard was replaced for a malfunctioning video card and then when I reported this issue a technician came and replaced the motherboard again and the heat sink + fan. The issue is still there and diagnostics comes up with no problems. The only parts that haven't been replaced in my computer are the HDD, the processor and the RAM. I don't think its a problem with the HDD as using it for anything else works, so I was wondering if it was possibly a problem with the CPU.

Dell Inspiron 7720 :: GPU Temperature Will Exceed 90 Degrees Celsius When Playing Games

Mar 22, 2013

I have had my 17R SE for almost half a year, I am not sure when it started but recently when I play games such as Crysis 3, the GPU temperature will exceed 90 degrees Celsius. This is not normal. I am pretty sure that the fan is not working at its maximum potential as when I tried to resolve the problem by flashing to the newest BIOS, the fan noise was significantly louder than it was when I was playing games. I have also tried the system diagnosis and it said everything is working fine.

Acer :: Aspire 7520 - Cannot Play Anymore New Games Or Even Watch Any Movies On My Laptop

Jun 25, 2009

I have a big problem with my acer 7520. The problem is that i cannot play anymore new games or even watch any movies on my laptop. I got the laptop about a year and a half ago and everything worked great. I could watch movies even when other applications were open. I could play pretty demanding games on it that ran very well. And now about 3 months ago all that luxury stopped and i cant do any of those things anymore. Even an old game like rome total war runs at 9 fps or lower on the main map, i didnt even bother going into battle. Movies stutter and skip frames, and sometimes even get stuck on the same frame with the sound still going as if everything is fine.

My specs are:

AMD Turion(tm) 64 X2 Mobile Technology TL-56 (2 CPUs), ~1.8GHz
2GB DDR2
NVIDIA GeForce 7000M / nForce 610M

HP/Compaq :: Laptop Shuts Off With 18% Battery Left.

Mar 23, 2010

I updated the bios which fixed other issues. I updated the drivers and did all the win7 updates to rule any of that out. When teh laptop gets down to 18% it just powers off instantly. It does not go through a normal shutdown process or hibernate. I can power it back on and it shows 18% battery left. Is the battery going bad? I dont think this machine is barely a year old yet. I have no problems on wall power. Could it be a Win7 power setting? Just surprised win7 would slam the power off like that.

HP DV7-6c90us Lockups :: Laptop Shuts Down Randomly While Gaming

Aug 9, 2014

So recently my laptop started randomly shutting off while I was gaming, I assumed it was the graphics card so I tried to use the intel hd graphics and disable the amd hd graphics to see if that would solve the issue, however it still happened. One thing I noticed is that now when I disable that graphics card the resolution is odd and the letters won't be as clear, I'm guessing this means it may be a motherboard issue.I moved on to thinking it was overheating due a fan problem, I bought a new thermal module for it and the same thing still happens.

I did the reset procedure (removed the battery and ac, pressed the power button for 60secs) and it still happened. I tried with a new battery and charger, same still happens.Lately it doesn't happen just while gaming, it will randomly shut down and once it does, sometimes it will shut down again and again before it even boots up, after a while it may boot up or may shut down again.It's really random and I cannot find a pattern....

Dell XPS L501X :: Laptop Shuts Off Completely Without Warning

Dec 12, 2013

My XPS L501X laptop shuts off completely and without warning. What happens is the cursor freezes. The computer does not respond to anything. After about 15 to 60 seconds, the screen goes black and it completely powers down in an instant. It does not restart on its own.

After it shuts down I can re-boot, but sometimes is shuts off during re-boot. Other times it runs for 5 minutes or so. Usually it acts this way for a day or two, then it's "OK" for a week or so before it starts acting up again.

I have run Dell diagnostics and found no problems. I have taken it to the local computer shop. They ran diagnostics and found nothing wrong and were not able to get it to shut down. Yet when I brought it home, it shut down on me within the first hour of use. It seems to run longer in safe mode, but I did have it shut off unexpectedly today while it was in safe mode.

I suspected there might be a problem with my video card as it seemed to be worse when I had an external monitor hooked up to it. Then I ran it for several weeks without the external monitor and it seemed to be OK. Until today when it started shutting down again with no external monitor attached.

This has been an excellent computer until this started happening about 6 months ago. I"m on the verge of giving up and buying a desktop (another laptop like this one is just too expensive). My laptop is out of warranty.

HP Envy 15t-j100 Lockups :: Laptop Shuts Down While In Sleep Mode?

Jul 8, 2014

I have recently purchased an HP ENVY 15t-j100 Quad Edition CTO Notebook Windows 7 Professional (PC Product #: E1P05AV). I'll usually close the lid to put it into sleep mode when I have to do something else. But when I open it back up, it has the "Start windows normally or safe mode" sreen. I've noticed that this only happens after a certain amount of time of being in sleep mode. If I wake it up prior to that, it works just fine. I hope that this can be resolved since this is a brand new laptop.

HP Pavilion G6-2320er OS/Software :: Laptop Shuts Down Due To Incorrect Operation Of Fan

Oct 15, 2014

How to solve the problem with a laptop. I have HP Pavilion g6-2320er (A6) and on it the operating system Windows 8. For a year this laptop works well (from date of purchase passed just over a year). Warranty expired in August 2014. (At the moment the guarantee is not performed). The problem is that the laptop began to overheat. It just shuts down. I began to raise it to ventilation air passes better.

But now it began to frequently shut down and even after the easy way out, when turned on, gives me a strange message: "The system has detected that a cooling fan is not operating correctly ... Continued operation is not recommended and may cause unpredictable behavior that could result in random shutdown possible system damage. The system will shutdown in 15 seconds. To prevent shutdown and continue operation ... "Of course, I understand the general meaning. But what is the reason for such work "fan" and what to do to more of this happening?

HP ProBook 4540s :: Windows 8.1 - When Unplugged Laptop Suddenly Shuts Down

I have a 1 year old HP Probook 4540s that recently has the following problem.
 
When unplugged the laptop suddenly shuts down even tough the battery shows 29% still remaining.
 
I receive no notification from Windows or anything, it just shut downs like when the battery reaches 0%.
 
Then in order to start it again, I need to plug it in.
 
I previously didn't have any battery problems and running the HP Assistant informs me that the battery is ok and it doesn't need replacements. Basically the laptop is dead at 28%-29% battery life.

Dell :: Hddmovies Or Music Stops Playing For A Very Short Time Simply Said Playing Isn't Smooth

Nov 29, 2008

I bought new Dell E4300 with 7200 rpm harddisk. Notebook is nice except one problem I have - every 2 seconds or more (this differes a lot on resources usage) movies or music stops playing for a very short time ... simply said playing isn't smooth.

I think it could be a HDD problem so I run HDTune benchmark.

Here is the result ... while I didn't make 15 posts I can't post a link (!@#$@$@#) anyway I think the result shouldn't look like this:

[url]

Almost in every low point of the graph the video or music stopped playing for a very short time (300-600ms) and that is very annoying.

I think it could be a hdd problem or maybe CPU problem that affects the hdd results as well, because the mouse pointer also stops moving for a while.

Acer :: Aspire One ZG5 Shuts Off At Startup

Oct 5, 2009

Quick background:
My dad just returned from Afghanistan and is home for a few weeks before he heads back (by home I mean with my mother - i.e. I am not with them so I cannot get my hands on the computer).

He's been using his netbook (Acer Aspire One ZG5) while over there and brought it back with him. It's been working perfectly fine for the last 6 months while he was there, but today when he tried to turn it on to show some pictures to my mom it wouldn't.

The computer would start up fine and begin loading windows. Then it just dies - it just shuts itself off.

The next time, the computer gave them the option to turn it on in safe mode which they tried. Same problem.

They've tried several times and it won't start - it also fails at different times.

Sometimes it almost fully loads windows and other times it shuts off a lot sooner.

I made him open the BIOS which worked fine... for a few seconds and then randomly shut itself off again.

Acer :: 5315 Randomly Shuts Down

Jan 28, 2009

In the past week, my aspire 5315 running vista premium 32bit has been randomly shutting off for what seems like no apparent reason. There's no warning of the shut down, it just turns off. It does this whether connected to the internet or not, and there isn't any one program that's the common denominator. Also, it doesn't boot up successfully every time (maybe 1 out of every 4 attempts). Instead, it just stays on a black screen with a single white blinking horizontal dash (the character two spaces to the left of the backspace button + shift). The computer had started doing this initially when I installed the latest update through Windows Update. I used System Restore and the problem seemed to be fixed. Then the problem started again a couple days later while watching "Lost" on ABC.COM. I ran Windows Defender and it didn't come up with anything.

I've tried running Kaspersky a few times, but the computer shuts down well before the scan is finished (even in safe mode). Any ideas as to what the problem could be?

But if I'm playing a movie, its almost guaranteed to crash to a blue screen, and the system reboots. Its too random to try recreate the problem instantly, other than just playing a movie and...waiting.
