Windows 7: Please Help - Random Crashing

Please Help - Random Crashing

Ok just to clear thing up my name doesn't relate to this post, so I'm not being rude. I'm just called this on other forums, .

Ok so I have a sony vaio vgn-nr32s. I bought it for a gift, and turned in on. It worked perfectly on the mains charger. Once I took it off the charge the battery drained extremely quick, and went down to 29% in about 7 mins. Then the laptop crashed, turned off with no warning, just a black screen. When I turned it back on with the mains plugged in it said charging 1% in the notifications.

Now what i want to know is, is it the battery? Is it a windows 7 problem as it was upgraded from windows vista? Would a new battery fix the problem?

I will do any test and upload any logs that will help you figure out the problem. As I say this is a gift for someone, and I'm stressed out .

Thanks in advance for any help.

You can always try getting a new battery and see if that fixes the problem. Do the simple stuff first before trying to dig into the complicated things

Yeah, I know what you mean but a battery is quite expensive. Was wondering if I could fix the problem without spending money first.

The battery appears dead (IMO). Check the Sony documentation to be sure - but the solution here is (again IMO) to buy a new battery. Yes they are expensive - but the alternative is to purchase a new laptop.

I just built a new computer about a month ago. It has worked fine for most of the time, but in the last few days it just randomly started to crash. The strange thing is that there is no error, BSOD, or anything. The screen just goes black and it reboots. It also happened once after waking it up...
