When I watch movies on Google Chrome my computer will shut down after 15mins

ok, and how does it shut down?

Does it shutdown like normal? Or go completely off with no warning?

ok, then it is not hardware related.

Which version of windows do you have running on it?

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago

win 7

Thanks

Its going to likely be data corruption or registry issues.

Do the following please

Click Start, type in %temp% and press enter

Delete all files and folders listed in the new window then restart

Then Download CC Cleaner (free) from here

CC Cleaner

(Click Download Latest Version on the top right)

Run it and let it scan and repair your registry.

Once done, restart the computer

Than

Click Start, All Programs, Accessories, right click on Command Prompt and select Run As Administrator.

A black window will open.

Type in it

sfc /scannow

press enter and when it has completed, type in

chkdsk /f

Press enter.

Customer reply replied 4 years ago

it says chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process

Thats right, and you need to say Y (yes) and restart the computer

When it asks you to run on restart.

Customer reply replied 4 years ago

ok i will view it now thanks

Customer reply replied 4 years ago

I'm not getting any sound now

Can you make sure you have not muted the movie please.

No sound will mean either the film is muted (check both the player and the computers speaker icon bottom right).

And does it now still shut down?

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago

I've checked the volume is at 100%

Try another film, we did not change the volume, so it will then be the film, your speakers, something in this area.

But also tell me if it is still shutting down please.

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
