Windows 7: Laptop randomly shuts down, possibly virus, power supply and more...

Laptop randomly shuts down, possibly virus, power supply and more...

Thanks for your interest.

Ok, firstly,



..from that picture, it might have resulted from me have going on naughty naughty sites , ignoring McAfee site advisor, or me accidently clicking on an app in an un-legit version of Counter Strike Source, called 'Bot中英文語音轉換器'. I don't understand the Chinese. Came up with 'In English speech converter' in Google Translator. When I clicked on it, command prompt appeared and I think it automatically did something. The word 'Bot' seems suss. Can a virus be activate via the command prompt?
From that, could it lead to the hardware? I've been experiencing random shutdowns. Also this happened in the past days.
Before these bluescreens appeared, McAfee Internet Security Suite was alerting that my computer is a risk. But now, for the past few days, multiple scans and they're all clean.

Regarding power supply, could there been NOT enough power supply with my laptop's hardware? Which might possibly be one of the causes to my BSoD?;

BSoD when using Traktor DJ software when an external Traktor soundcard is plugged in

My laptop (Acer Aspire V3-571G running Intel Core i5-2450M ~3.1GHz, 8GB ram, 2GB nVidia GT640M graphics, Windows OS, 64-bit OS) is just a few weeks, old, with 1 year warranty. Bringing it to the store which I bought it from for some testing.

Also have been getting these kinda screens a few times:




Would restoring the OS help at all?

I have been researching about the computer shutting down problem, such as this:

Computer turns off without warning


Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Laptop power supply query
Yesterday my laptop's power supply blew :cry: I sent it in for repairs and was told that it would take 10-30 working days!! Yikes! Big question: can I use my wife's power supply in the meantime? My one had an output of 19V 4,72A 90W while hers has an output of 18,5V 3,5A 65W. Is this do-able?
