Suddenly today, my laptop crashed. The charger connection flash from off and on and then the laptop shutoff. I restarted it and it worked for a bit. The charger connection did again and the crash happened again. I noticed the charger (which is a replacement I ordered online) was really hot so I let it rest for a while. When I plugged it again, instead of shutting off the screen just froze until I force shutdown the laptop. I then tried the old charger that has a loose connection and there was no immediate crash. 20 minutes later, the laptop froze again. This all has happened within about 2 hours suddenly. The computer is an Acer Aspire V17 Nitro and I am completely stumped by what is causing this. The event logs just state:
"The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID" and some other things I cannot understand.
Any ideas or help is greatly appreciated.
