Daughters friends laptop has suddenly taken to shutting down when in the middle of any application she is using. Any ideas on whats causing the problem. Don't think it's a virus as the uni she's at has a lot of software installed though that's not to say it can't be! Thanks
Apparantly the laptop is only 6 months old and problem occurs when battery is fully charged or if on mains power. Can't get any further info tonight as they've gone out. students eh!! Thanks for help so far back tomorrow.
Finally got some more information. There is no error message - the system justs shuts down. Also it now will only start from the mains charger even though the battery is fully charged. A printer was installed at Xmas. Would it be an idea to uninstall and is this done while in safe mode? The o/s is xp home and laptop is a patriot. Thanks
