Help with Laptop problem of powering off!!!!

  si_chung 17:17 10 Mar 2006

I hav a mesh laptop, which worked fine with the old mains adaptor, but since i have bought a universal mains adaptor its switches itself off without any warning. in can take maybe 2hours or 10min to turn off. it seems clear that it could be the mains adaptor but why they time difference, maybe it could be the memory because when the laptop it processing hard it turns off so it is a bit of a mystery. possibly even over-heating, but the fan is running as normal. Your help would be fantastic

Thank You

1. probably heat, check with Motherboard Monitor (1,736K) click here Monitors temperatures etc.

2. possibly memeory (but I doubt it) check with Memory Test

Sounds like the Adapter is not up to the job. i.e not enough power cheap adapter

I dont think its the adaptor because i spent 50 quid on it, and its the right watts and volts needed. I have a feeling it might be a heat issue. I will investigate.
