I have been having a rather frustrating problem with my computer recently. I am a photographer and I am in the middle of a job right now but my computer is not making the job possible. When I try to open a picture, then click the next button, it will instantly shut down. Sometimes I can keep clicking next and it's fine. But this morning I turned my computer on went to view my images and it shut down, the computer was only on for about 30 seconds so I don't think it's an over heating issue. I can also run Photoshop fine until I use say the text tool. As soon as I click to make a text box... BAM!! powers off.
I will run any monitoring you like and upload the results. I will be on here all day so I can reply immediately.
This will be amazing if I can get this sorted today!
Oh 1 more thing, this is very odd as well. Whenever I move a window around I get those stupid trails you get in windows 95 :/ I have all my graphics drivers up-to-date. Here is a screen shot of what I mean. (See attachment)
I think this whole problem is something to do with my graphics card.. maybe not getting enough power?
EDIT: Also, when I plug my battery into the laptop, it also makes it power off after about 1 min. The battery is at 1% charge. SO, it sounds the laptop is demanding more power to power the battery but fails resulting in power cut.... what do you reckon, new AC in need?
