Powers off when online

While online,usually while listening to music but also on IM, my daughter's laptop will act like a cd that is scratched - skipping, repeating, etc. - and then will power off. She has to unplug and replug in the power source (either the cord or the battery) in order to turn it on again. Any ideas as to the problem?

Hi, If I may add to legna's solution, a similar problem on a Satellite A35-S209, cause was traced to the battery not fully charged (or will no longer hold a full charge because of age) and the AC adapter not capable of supplying enough power with the WiFi running at full power. Things I tried (or wanted to) were: 1. run the wifi at lower but sufficient power only to get a decent connection (less drain on the battery); 2. replace the battery; and/or 3. run the AC adapter continuously and charge the battery overnight always. Hope this be of help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.

Virus Alert!! Do you have an anti virus up to date and running. Do a deep scanning of the system if this problem only happens when on line it may be a Trojan virus they mess up your computer because they need you to be on line to be effective even listening to music is risky most players need to connect to the internet for all type of reasons. Now the problem with most anti virus softwares do not pick some of the ticks in your PC so try this one it has never let me down and is free:

Itune songs now skip like a scratched cd/ is it version 10.7 causing this

Usually it is the software in which you are using to obtain this music. If these songs are from a disc, try re-extracting them from that/those disc(s).

Make sure your SHUFFLE option is unchecked to ensure you are listening to one full song at a time.

Cant record online music. System only shows microphones not recording devices

They don't allow you to record online music. Seems like it should be easy to do, but it's because of copyright laws. The musicians/singers want to get paid. You can go to many websites and listen to the songs before you download your favorite songs for a buck a song. Pretty cheap actually when you consider you usually only find one or two good songs on an album that costs $12. Once you download it you have your own copy to burn to a CD. You can find all your favorites online. If you have songs already on CD you can copy them to your computer and make a CD of your favorites! Good luck

Songs and radio skips like a scratched cd

Your mp3 player works like a hard disk, make sure that it was not moving when you are listening to your music. If the problem is the same try to use a new headset/earphone on it. Loose connections on your headset/earphone makes you think that your mp3 player skips.
