Windows 7: My laptop just turned off randomly (win7 asus)

02 Sep 2014   #1

My laptop just turned off randomly (win7 asus)

um so basically I was playing the game called roblox I had a couple of IE pages open in the background and steam so nothing too memory hungry. anyway I had been playing roblox for a while when suddenly it started lagging really badly for like 10 seconds after which my computer calmly powered off, I say powered off because it didn't tell me it was shutting down or give me a virus alert or a error or a warning or anything it just suddenly powered off not like it ran out of power (because I don't have a battery in it I just have it plugged into the power) but more like it just chose to power off for some reason. why did this happen?.

also I have another question why does windows task manager always tell me (Even when I have just turned the laptop on) that my memory is using like somewhere between 0.80 GB and to about 1.50 GB (after its been running things for hours even if I close everything).

Please do the steps following in the following tutorial in case it was malware, it should not have lagged before turning off if it is a hardware crash: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free Please disable auto quarantine in case Malwarebytes finds any false positives. If anything that seems to not be malware or potentially unneeded programs are found, such as system files or programs you think you need and use, please post a screenshot of the list of detected items: Screenshot with Paint, Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums Also, in case it is a hard drive close to failing, you should back up your important files right away after running the malware scan, NOT before because it may infect the USB storage device too.
