I have recently purchased an ASUS N81vg laptop. OS - Windows Vista Home Premium.
Laptop specs are as follows:
Manufacturer: ASUSTeK Computer Inc.
Model: ASUS Notebook N81Vg Series
Processor: Intel core 2 Duo CPU P8700 @ 2.53 Ghz
Memory: 4 GB
The problem is that while executing certain programs, watching movies etc. the laptop shuts down abruptly. Since the laptop is recently purchased and it is under warranty. I did take it to the vendor but they returned it after few days saying that there was nothing wrong with it.
I changed the Battery settings to balanced and it did stay for 24 hours without shutting down, but today morning I faced the same issue again. The laptop went off twice while I was working on it.
What I did notice is that in the task manager there are several programs running, out of which skype and skype extras was using the most memory. So, I closed the application and since then it is ok for now. But I would really appreciate if someone could guide me whether this problem is related to hardware or software?
I really can't figure it out. And if its a software related problem, then I would need some assistance in solving it.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
