It is probably because you have it set to shut off when the laptop is closed. You should try to change it in the System settings

    Hi, and thanks for answer, but that is not the problem. I have gone through the power and system settings, and everything is how it should be.

    To clarify the problem: When I lift it up ( to move it) it just black out (it doesn't shut down, just blackout like the battery has been taken out). I have spent some time on google trying to figure out what could be wrong, but I have not found an solution yet.

SOURCE: Computer turns off by itself

I have a toshiba laptop which was unexpectedly switching off. The laptop was 2 years old. I did lots of searching online to discover this is a VERY COMMON ISSUE. The problem is, dust blocks the heatsink. When I took my computer to pieces, I found a strip of dust half an inch (1cm) thick covering the back of the heatsink which prevented air flow. If your laptop is a couple of years old, this could be the problem. When I removed this dust, the problem disappeared. If you are computer savvy, then try the following - if not, take it down to a computer shop! 1) Remove the 5 screws holding down the heat sink cover and processor cover. These are on the bottom of the laptop, in the centre, at the back. 2) Remove the 3 screws which hold in the heat sink in place. 3) Remove the heatsink 4) Take the dust out 5) Re-assemble a note: be careful not to get dust in the thermal paste on the cpu - unless you have replacement paste. Good Luck!

Hmartinez, there is a strong possibility that the power management on your computer has failed or is failing. if you have not replaced the battery ever since, i suggest you have the battery checked, or replaced.

you may also try to isolate the problem by plugging the charger to the machine without the battery to check if you will have the same issue, if yes, then there is a possibility that the machine is overheating.

if you have other questions just lemme know./

I had the same problem. I installed a CPU temperature monitor and realised my CPU was overheating and that is why it kept on switching off. I opened up my ACER 5720Z and cleaned the vents which were (very) clogged up, even though my laptop is only 6 months old

Try a new power adapter before you try the other expensive tests and repairs. The adapters are notorium about failing after being used continuously . If you can check the outgoing voltage at the tip where it fits into the DC jack on the laptop would be good. Match the output to the rated voltage needed to peoperly power the laptop.

I can't give you a cure for your problem online as testing MUST be done. Computer scanning and individual Component tests are the only way to verify a failure. If a shop is doing the work, I certainly hope they aren't charging you for iteems replaced that did nothing towards making an adequate repair.
Off hand, I'd be looking for a bad connection such as inside the ignition switch or since you mentioned a timing sensor (there is no such thing) either you replaced the crank position sensor or the cam sensor. Whichever was replaced, check the other one.
Wiring failures most often happen at the connector pins or behind the connector plug where moisture gets in and corrodes the internal connection. All of that needs to be tested for continuity and resistance.

This is not a software issue but more of a hardware fault - the battery and charging circuit all rechargeable batteries laptop ones get to become useless after x amount of charges. What is the battery condition? Do you get sufficient charge remaining for atleast 1 hour? Or also it may be overheating due to insufficient ventilation.

Xbox 360 controller turns off at random, yet has new batteries

The battery indicator found when pressing your xbox logo button is temperamental. It might say 2 bars, or 3 or even full battery but this is not a good indicator of a full battery.

The problem IS low batteries(or more specifically - bad batteries) - when the batteries become low the vibration function can cause the controller to disconnect. This is happens because the vibration function uses extra battery power.

So basically... Every time your controller vibrates, it disconnects. This occurs when firing a weapon in most games, grenades in COD, landing heavy tricks in Skate 2, the list goes on, you'll find many complaints from people stating their controller disconnects specifically with these events.

The simple solution, turn off the vibration function when this occurs. It'll never happen to you again ^_^

Thumbs this up when it proves correct for you. I'd recommend a recharge while you play pack. ALWAYS by the official products too. They're much more reliable and aren't prone to this kind of behaviour.
