Having problems with your E-Machines M5309 Notebook ?

My laptop shuts down frequently. I thought in overheating, but may it be RAM memo?

Answers :

I have had a fair amount of experience with emachines 5300 series and they are very prone to overheating problems. It is quite a chore and not for the faint hearted to dissassemble and clean these, fortuneately I have found it to be unnecessary. Get some canned air, I get mine at Sam's and blow in where the hot air comes out when it is running, if overheating is the problem you will create a small dust storm. I have even had success blowing in the vent with lung power.
Here is how to check if its a RAM problem:
Install and run that.
This will test you're ram. After it has ran for 24 hrs without errors you're ram is fine.

If it's overheating... here is how to disassemble you're comptuer, and clean it out:

Same problem I also have a dell inspiron 1525 laptop that likes to shut down on its own. I thought it might be overheated so I got the program to monitor CPU and GPU temp. It seems normally it goes to 60-70 degrees but when I run games it will jump to 90ish and then random shut down starts. It seems many ppl have similar problem with this product over on the dell support forum and dell has not issue any official statement. All the posters tried calling the support line and that's going no where.

Hey there! I own an Acer Aspire 5710. It’s always had overheating problems and I’m quite used to it shutting down frequently (and frustratingly :( ). However, I was switching it on again a few nights ago after it overheated, and it went into System Repair saying there may be a disk error that it was attempting to repair and that it may take over an hour. That was all cool but then the laptop overheated AGAIN, shutting the System Repair down mid-fix. When I attempted to turn the laptop on once

From what you are saying, the overheating inerrupted the disk error repair. You would need to repair your operating system using your Windows CD. Now to deal with your overheating, I recommend that you purchase a laptop cooling fan from a computer ac ... Acer PC Desktops
