G560 Shutting down without warning

2012-07-24, 3:35 AM

I've had my G560 for a little over a year and, for the last several months it's been randomly shutting off without warning. I mean... it's on and then it's off. I'm not getting any type of error message or anything like that. I have no clue what the problem is. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Are you running on battery when it shuts down?
Could be faulty battery.

Have you checked for overheating due to dust buildup
on heatsink/fan?
Remove bottom panel, check and clean.

Most all unexpected power off like shutdowns are processor overheating issues. Mine however bombs off line when I press the left side palm rest or apply any pressure to that side when I pick it up. So there is a hardware problem here and I am wondering if it could be in the touch pad. If so I can replace that easy enough. Its ok when I am just resting my hand on it and typing or whatever however is I pull the machine forward on the table by grabbing the palm rests ot apply any other motion to stimulate the left palm rest area it bombs. Has anyone else had this issue here and if so have you tried just replacing the touch pad to see if it corrected the issue?

Hi ,

I have a Lenovo G560 with exactly the same problem. It shuts down without warning , as if you had unplugged the battery.

After reading your post, I pressed the left side of the laptop next to the touch pad, and that does it. It shuts down

every time I press it.

Did you ever get to fix your laptop. If yes , how did you do it ?

 

thanks,

Mike

I cleaned off the crappy thermal paste they sprayed all over the place when my G560 was assembled.

Applied small beads of Arctic Silver 5.

Fan isn't constantly spinning now and it's not cooking my left thigh when I work.
