Answers :


I suspect that your systems may be overheating and shuts itself off.

Disconnect all power. Remove covers as needed.

Some suggestions are:

1. Reseat the memory

2. Remove the bottom of your laptop where the fan is located and blow out all the dust with compressed air.

3. Replace the fan

4. If you wiggle the power cable near the laptop and the laptop works for a bit, your power jack may need to be soldered or replaced.

Hope this helps.

I have a LG Flatron W2234s. Purchased about 7 months ago and has always worked fine. Yesterday it suddenly went black. I can unplug it for a few minutes then plug it back in and it will work fine for a few minutes. The longer I leave it unplugged the longer it works when I plug it back in. The max work time seems to be about 30 to 45 minutes. Any ideas as to how to fix it? Thanks. Larry
