Random Computer Shutdowns
I have a laptop that will randomly shut down. It does not seem to be dependent on anything I am doing or not doing. Nothing I do on the coumputer is resource intensive. I am basically just browsing the internet, working in MS Word/Excel, Quickbooks and other basic office functions.
I was first thinking a power related problem but am unsure about that since it would not be the power supply since the battery charges and discharges like normal. I could see the computer turning off if the battery were dead and not plugged in but it is happening while the battery is charged and plugged in. If it were the battery, wouldn't having the power supply plugged in bypass the need to have the battery in?
Do you think a simply format of the hard drive and restore do the trick? I can easily do it but I would hate to have to spend the time if I don't have to.
Any suggestions or ideas?
