Question about PC Laptops
Initially, I would suspect the battery (even when plug to the AC). To confirm, pls try running without the battery and purely on AC adapter. Alternately, it could be a loose component internally such as the memory, LAN or WiFi card and in some models, video card. In my Toshiba, it turned out that the WiFi was consuming too much power that it discharges the battery rapidly and the charger was having a hard time coping up. My solution was to turnoff the built-in WiFi and install a D-Link USB.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Now you will find one Month Calendar window with Dates below, go to the previous month by clicking the '<' sign in the upper left hand corner of the Month Calendar and select any date that you see in Bold.

time on the right hand side box. Select that date.
Now, Click on Next and System Restore will start and windows will take a reboot.
