Welcome to Bleepingcomputer.

Hmmm? been seeing a lot of HP DV6000 machines with shut down problems lately.

But I have to ask the same question I asked the others.

I see where you have done some maintenance to your computer.

Have you inspected the heat sink over the processor?

Examples: checked heat sink to make sure it is firmly seated on top of the processor spreader?

Checked for dust in the heat sink?

Used a program to monitor core temperatures such as HWMonitor or Speed Fan?

HWMonitor http://www.cpuid.com/hwmonitor.php

SpeedFan http://www.almico.com/sfdownload.php

Have you added any new hardware lately?

Made changes to your BIOS setup utility lately?

Bruce.

thanks for replying, no hardware changes, looking at the heat sink may require more than i am willing to open up the laptop, i would think that it does not get hot enough, 30 sec seems to short of time to shut it down but will check it

It does not take long for heat to build up in laptops to cause a system shut down.

The system shuts down to protect hardware from possible damage.

Laptops are the most prone to heat problems.

The reason being there just isn't enough room for air flow to begin with, then enter the dust, which happens often with laptops.

It does not take long for small amounts of dust to build up in laptops and close air channels.

If you would like me to link you to web sites that specialize in laptop repair and disassembly here is one.

Have fun this is a good link to help you.
