Not sure if this should be posted here or in the VISTA forum, but I'll try here.
I have an HP Pavillion DV6636NR laptop, about a year & a half old. Vista SP1, 2 Gigs of RAM, AMD Turion X2 TL-58
It shuts down intermittently, no blue screen, no errors. Just shuts right down, usually in the middle of something.
I'm running AVG 8.5, but i havent been able to complete a scan -- it goes for an hour or so & then shuts down in the middle of the scan.
The bottom of the laptop seems really hot at times, but it doesn't seem hotter than at times when it doesn't shut down.
Any way I can tell if this is a hardware or software problem, or heat?
thanks for any ideas
