Windows 8 Asus laptop shuts off randomly

August 2, 2014 at 14:10:26
Specs: Windows 8
My Laptop is shutting off randomly . No warnings no nothing . It powers off as if i hit the power button itself . I usually just turn it back on . When i log back in the desktop sets up . No error messages or anything . This has been going on for the past 3 - 4 days now . I reset the computer's system which did no good . I feel the option left is to reinstall windows but i am afraid even that , will not work . My comp type is Asus Laptop 64bit with i5Intel .

Check all cooling vents are clear; surprising just how much "fluff" can accumulate there. Also that the fan is running properly.

Is there a time aspect to it; as in how long is it on before it shuts off?

Does it happen regardless of whether the battery in installed or not?

Have you got any settings (even power-save options) that may put it into shut down?

When you switch on again - does it go through the normal boot up sequence or just come straight back the desktop?

Is it actually shutting down - or simply going to sleep?

While the following are not for win-8x - they may suggest a few possible causes?

do a search for power settings and then adjust all the controls accordingly...windows 8 seems to have presets to shut down a laptop or PC, display, etc. Once you make adjustments you should be fine.

Is this another example of M$ techies being "helpful" - with a set of default settings; and about which many have no idea they're there? Rather than as it used to be when "they" left it all in a permanent "on" state; and left the user to make any changes in terms of power save etc...

That seems to be what it is...why they would do that...who knows?

Makes them (M$-techies) sound "green" and carbon conscious...?
