Having problems with your Gateway MX6448 Notebook ?

Laptop turns off randomly

\015 Every so often while I am doing something on the computer it will just shut off. If I try to turn it back on right away it will start to load up and then turn back off while it is loading. After a few minutes or so I can turn it back on and it will work again for a while. Is there anything I can do to fix it\015

Answers :

Is it getting very hot on the bottom?
You could try using some canned or compressed air to blow out some dust. Also laptop cooling pads work great.
