My computer keeps updating when shutting down

Temperature sensors detect this and will react by making the fan spin faster and faster.

The point of spinning the fan faster is to force more air through the available gaps, and past the hot metal fins to pick up more heat.

You are not the only other person with this problem I have seen on internet forums. Thanks I have this problem with my Toshiba Satellite laptop, too.

My toshiba satellite p755-s5320 keeps just turning off (not shutting down) just click off. Shutting off succinctly at random times, sometimes accompanied by fan noises, but sometimes not.

I took it to a tech and he kept it for two days and he said it never happened to him. I took it to a tech and he kept it for two days and he said it never happened to him. Per my repair person it's poorly designed like a piece of tape and 2 pieces of aluminum foil and he can see why it quit working.

If those are clear and you are comfortable opening the laptop you could try replacing the thermal paste on the CPU and see if that helps. Thanks I hate to tell you this but I have the same problem with this laptop and it's bad news.

Try cleaning the exhaust ports and the fan(s) to remove the dust.

However 9 out of 10 cases of laptop overheating are caused by an airflow blockage.

In these cases, the fan is spinning as fast as it can, but if the hot air is obstructed from reaching the outside world, a heat build-up occurs and the laptop takes the safety precaution of turning itself off, rather than allowing permanent damage to occur.

A fan then draws air from the outside world and blows across the hot grill, back towards the outside.

As it does so, the air picks up heat from the hot metal fins and takes it away from the laptop.

In an laptop overheating due to an airflow obstruction scenario, the most likely culprit is a build-up of material in front of the metal heatsink grill.
