Laptop turns off during install and more..

  rsturbo 11:37 23 Jan 2020

I had to reinstall my laptop, it powers off during install. When after many attempts it finally installs, it will power off unless i turn off all power saving options (even if i just say turn off screen after x mins) it only stays on if i turn off this as well. Any help would be most appreciated.

This might be a dumb answer , windows updates seems to do odd things that you don't find out about until you have a problem.

Go into power setting for both screen and pc turn off and look at time on them , once on I never turn my pc off until I don't intend to use it again today so I have all power tabs set to never turn off.

try removing the battery if possible sometimes these cause the problem you are having and just use the power supply

Take out power supply, take out battery and press the start button for 30 seconds to clear the cache.

Reconnect battery.

Does it only have one of those small hard drives on it.Could it be a faulty Power supply. Not holding the charge maybe.

Have tried taking out power source and battery, no it has standard 2.5" laptop hdd (which is brand new). Still no luck

Is your operating system Windows 10? Have you got fast startup enabled? If so you could try disabling this to see if it has any effect.
