I have the same problem with my HP. I am running Windows7 Home Premium Edition (64bit) SP1. Have you found any answers, anywhere?
HP Has A Suggestion For That
First, because your computer is a couple of years old, and heat can cause such issues, be sure to use some canned/compressed air to blow out all fans, vents, and any other dust from inside the computer cover.
Next, because the settings on the computer cause it to shut down, or restart, when an error is thrown, change the setting so it shows the error instead of shutting down.. In addition, there appears to be a BIOS update which may fix the problem although be sure to follow HP's instructions as updating the BIOS on a computer which shuts down randomly could REALLY cause issues. Still, it IS suggested as a fix in their link below:
Since you can't download the BIOS update from your current computer, you'll need to borrow a friend or family member's machine to download the update file, transfer it to a flash drive or CD, then copy it to the problem computer.
Hope this helps.
computer shuts down when connect to the internet
after fighting with this for some time I realized it only shut down when connected to the internet. If I turned off my WIFI, I could work no problem. Now I find it is only at home. I am in Starbucks and it is fine. I do have other machines working on the home internet. Seems to be only this HP G 60. Maybe 4 years old Hope someone has some ideas
And Have You????
......Checked for an updated driver for the wireless adapter on your computer? If not, visit the HP website and see if they have one.. If not, visit the adapter manufacturer's website and find one there.. Install it and see if it helps.
And of course, did you try the suggestions by HP at the link I provided earlier? If not, please do.
Hope this helps.
PC Shutting Down when Connected to Internet
I have had 2 HP's, 2 Dells, a Lenovo and a homebuilt PC all affected by unexpected shutdowns when idle (and very occasionally while in use) over the last 1 1/2 to 2 years. The Lenovo and one of the Dells are very new but following siut with the others. Noe of these pc's shut down when at other locations or when Wifi is interrupted. I only found out recently that disconnecting the wifi stopped the shutdowns.
The problem persists although I have been searching for an answer all that time. I have searched for heat issues and checked event logs. I changed my router twice (i read of firmware updates in an older Netgear N300 router so changed it). More recently I have learned of Windows telemetry and have discontinued that (as far as the methods used are viable).
Something I noticed as well is that when windows was reinstalled on an earlier laptop, and on brand new pcs (Dell & Lenovo) the laptops continued to run without unexpected shutdowns until Windows updates were installed after which they immediately began to shutdown after only a few minutes of idle time.
I would surely appreciate any suggestions.
Connecting to WiFi shuts down computer
I had this same problem (blue-screen then reboot, try to connect again and the cycle repeats) and couldn't find the answer anywhere either. What finally fixed it for me was to go into the adapter settings and uncheck "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power". To get there go to control panel/network and internet/network connections, right click the WiFi adapter and choose properties, click configure, go to the power management tab and uncheck the top checkbox.
This worked for me. Thanks man.
