    Thermal cutout leads to BSOD/restarts until I pull the power cord out


    Hi, HP G60 laptop, occasionally I get a thermal cutout when sthg exceptional is going on.
    When this has happened, I get a BSOD after a restart and get stuck in a restart loop a couple of times and can't boot normally and don't get my boot menu (Win 10 or Safe Mode).

    (Yes, I've tried cleaning the fan and this happened in Win 8.1 too).

    So having upgraded to win 10 I had hoped this might have been solved. It never happened with Win 7 or Vista on hte same laptop, so it seems it's a 'feature' of the automatic repair sequence introduced in Win 8.

    The only way out is to pull the power cord out just after power on, for example, and do a cold boot.

    It's as if some flag is retained forcing Windows into its automatic repair sequence.

    Any thoughts? Thanks.

    Otherwise, all seems (mostly) ok apart from a couple of programs now not finding an audio card since upgrading.

    :)

  2. Windows 10 keeps crashing to many different BSODs

    I took out every card and cord and reinserted them after using a compressed air canister to dust it all down and plugged it back in, the only things I didn't do that to was the CPU and motherboard power because I don't have the time or patience to pull
    out the power cord (I don't know if it's this way for every one else but mine is very hard to pull out and plug back in), and clean the thermal paste off of the CPU cooler and then reapply it. I work tomorrow so I probably won't be able too until Saturday
    or late Friday night.

    Nokia CK-7W Car Kit won't switch off after switching car off!

    Lucy, I understand your problem entirely!



    I never solved the issue - this was my post... I started it.



    In the end I disconnected the device. I found it under the dashboard, passanger side. I pulled the cords out of the device which clearly disconnected the power lead! The car battery has never drained since.



    I cannot advise on fixing, I have no idea. All I do know is that pulling the leads out solved the issue of the battery draining for me.



    I hope this helps.

    Thermal cutout leads to BSOD/restarts until I pull the power cord out

    IMHO, your problem is overheated and by cleaning the FAN is not enough. I don't think it was caused by W8 or W10, maybe in the early day when using W7, Vista, your laptop was not as bad as it is now. If you are confident, you can disassemble the laptop and clean up the inside real good, put some new thermal paste on the CPU. You can search in youtube.com for instruction how to disassemble your Laptop.

    Thanks topgundcp, and I quite take your point about heat management, and thanks for the links which I'll look into. Never been brave enough tho' to disassemble sthg I rely on so much.. However it is around 5 years old, and the right thing to do.

    However, what I am particularly curious about here is how it is not possible to get back into a normal boot sequence once I'm in this restart loop without forcing a cold boot in such a dramatic way, and whether anyone else has had this experience. I can certainly say I've never seen the attempt at automatic repair succeed.

    The boot differs from a normal boot in that the boot menu is not presented as usual even from a simple power up. Only when I disconnect power with power on can I then reboot successfully once in that situation.

    However, when all is normal, I can shut down and restart normally.
