Hi Penais, ty for the feedback.

Just one small query: Using the Driver sweeper, Do I just remove nvidia drivers or all the drivers? or all of the drivers?

Many thanks!

Cheers many thanks panaies, I'll get back to it. Is the following by any chance related to the same issue, laptop shuts down without any notification or BSOD. I'd open a new thread as per rules but perhaps they're both related and so i'll also know whether they're two different or same issues

Is that happens when using only the battery or when connected to ac?

Also shutdown the laptop for 1 hour,start the laptop enter bios and post here the system and cpu temperatures.

For temperatures checking and more you can also download and use Speccy - Standard

Some laptops auto shuts down in high temperatures.

keep clean the cpu fan\cooler,you might be blocking air inlets or vents.

Use air spray and clean the cpu fan\cooler and keep the <breathing> area clean.

Hello Panais,

I have removed AVG and installed MS Sec essentials.

Now regarding the drivers...I do auto detect on Nvidia site and it gives me notice that I should get updates from OEM. I goto Acer site and the latest driver there is the same as mine..should I just proceed and install the Nvida 540m notebook drivers from their website regardless of the auto-detection notice?

Regards
