I keep getting sudden shutdowns on my new Acer Aspire 5750G notebook.
I literally bought this model 1 month ago, although I was told it was a showroom model for some time.
Usually what happens is that I'm browsing internet/folders (not using any high-demanding programs) and after sometime the laptop just shuts off completely. Power seems to fail without any crash/shutdown whatsoever.
The odd thing is that I can play high-graphic games or other high cpu-demanding games/programs for hours and no crashes/shutdowns. These shutdowns happen AFTER playing these games or just randomly.
Also, yesterday I was playing music for and hour (just music, everything else on standby). But when I opened Firefox within 5 seconds I get a powerfail...
I've been looking around the internet for solutions but at this point I'm getting pretty hopeless.
- All my drivers
are up to date
- Installed new Windows (Ultimate x64), no change
- No malware/virus
- Bios updated
- Not heat-related as I'm only getting 60/65 (70 max).
I'm relunctant to send it back to the shop as unsure whether I downloaded something wrong myself..
Only programs I got so far are games (Skyrim, Fallout 3 & New Vegas, Risen) Furthermore I'm using Gamebooster sometimes (Gives me more time before a powerfail).
