My Laptop Keeps Cutting Out....!

  lauraadams 13:24 06 Oct 2008

My Packard Bell laptop keeps cutting out after about 20 minutes of use. I have plugged the power lead into it but it still seems to be cutting out.
I know that it's not a fault with the power lead as it works in my friends laptop.
What could be the problem?

Obvious first thought is overheating, try blowing all the vents clear to dislodge any dust in the heat exchanger.

Go to Control Panel\Power Icon Double click it and turn things to NEVER turn off or do this etc
