So, I have a laptop that shuts off ever 30 seconds to 30 minutes.
It appears to be getting progressively worse. It happens when I'm in bootup, it happens from within windows, from the bios, it happens during OS installation, it happens during linux... and so on.
I think it only happens when the laptop is plugged into AC power, however the battery readout is not correct so the power cuts off at around 60% sometimes anyway and doesn't show the proper charging percentage either. However, at least it doesn't shut off every few seconds/minutes.
Here is the key point though, it does NOT happen when I'm playing music (mp3) or video (mp4) from inside windows with VLC player.
That's right, the only way I can work on my computer is if I boot into windows 10, 64 bit with the laptop unplugged, and then start playing an mp3 on repeat with VLC and then plug my computer into AC power.
What.. the.. heck is going on here? Any ideas?
I've tried updating the bios.
I should note that my bios battery also appears to be dead since my computer no longer keeps time, the clock jumps around like crazy.
