The possibilities are very broad. Faulty power supply, intermittent internal B+ components, etc.

Start by trying another power supply, and see if that resolves the issue.

Hameister is right, you could also check the voltage is correct with a multi meter and see if there is a break in the lead and the voltage drops, the other possibilities are RAM and prosessor none of which can be rulled out good new is the data is safe.

any help needed let us know and we will try and help you

No, not a different battery, a different power supply brick. One that you know is working perfectly.

Plug the power supply into the power input jack, WITHOUT the battery installed. If the laptop works fine, you know you have a bad power supply. If you continue to have the same issue, then you need to get inside that laptop, and check out the B+ circuit.

If you're uncomfortable doing that, you need to take it to a qualified technician.

yes get a new power brick and try that if you do not know how to test with a multimeter, again like Hameister said you need to open up the laptop and if you are not confiedent in doing so take it to someone this is trained in laptop repairs.

if you need support youtube the model and put something like removing the motherboard of a model ect

hope this helps

Kind Regards

I've attached a photo of a laptop that I repaired a couple of months ago. If this makes your stomach queezy, then don't even attempt it.

I wasn't referring too you....I know you've done these repairs. I was directing my comments to the OP.
