Hi, hope this is posted on the right forum.
2 nights ago i was watching something on VLC player when my notebook just randomly switched off. it didn't shutdown, there was no warning just switched completely off like htere was a powercut. The battery was at 62% and wasn't plugged in.
I'd been using it for around 2 & a half hours, the notebook didn't feel hot and the fans were not loud. the fans run fine and with little noise most of the time.
I've checked the battery on HP SupportAssistant and it says its fine.
it's never happened before. i've had the notebook 15 months. the only programs open were VLC player and Firefox.
My avast antivirus the morning after did warn me to disable the addon MyWOT. could that have anything to do with it?
Since then i've used the notebook for more than 7 hours, Could this just have been a blip or do i need to do more checks?
