If it is switching off by itself & then allowing you to turn it back on it is most likely an overheating problem. The cpu has a built in sensor that shuts the pc off before damaging the cpu. First thing to check is your vents. Make sure they are free of dust & debri. After cleaning make sure your fan is blowing air out of the vents, if it is not then you will need to replace your cpu fan. If all is clean & fan is working then you could buy an inexpensive laptop cooling pad to set the pc on while working to help keep the temps in normal operating range. Hope this helps.

Wireless Switch My laptop is a Presario2100 (not a 2100T). I have had it for just over three years. Naturally, 2 months after the warranty ran out, something stopped working on my computer. My wireless switch will not turn on. It probably isn't a card problem, because it will not even turn on enough to tell me whether or not it senses wireless networks. Instead, the switch itself seems to be broken because I push the button on the front right corner, and absolutely nothing happens. Is ther
