does it do the same when connected to the mains ?
do you get any error messages before it shuts down such as a blue screen ?

Is it a Toshiba? can you switch it back on straight away? if not and it just goes off for no reason then it could be getting too hot, blow in to the vent at the side and see if you can shift the dust off the heatsink, works on mine.

My laptop goes off if it overheats or you block the air vent if you have it on your knee or an uneven surface!

My laptop switches off cos it has no battery pack and the terminals inside the jack port are wearing. If your battery isn't charging when the cable is in, check the lead, the transformer and the jack port. If the battery is ok, I'm stumped.

the Battery charges just fine, we had a new jack port fitted a couple of months ago because the laptop was knocked off the table by one of the dogs it was on charge and the jack pushed it inside, so it cant be that. i cant understand why the power just switches off when it's plugged in with a full battery think

My laptop is also a Compaq and has a dodgy jack socket, sometimes is the jack plug is making repeatedly intermittent contact it also just switches off.

Does it ever do it when just running off battery, mine doesn't.

Other thing that also did it on mine was a knackered memory card, luckily it had two fitted and so running it with one it was ok, running it with just the other would sometimes switch off. New memory card and it was fixed.

My desktop computer manages to do this when I access a specific file on an external USB drive. I have still to find any possible reason for this, nothing down USB should be able to do an immediate shutdown of the PC so I am guessing it is a driver problem. Annoyingly this is 100% predictable which should make fault finding easier but with no error log generated and the time to boot it up again has made me give up - one day etc.

I still think it is an over heating problem, maybe blowing into it wont shift the dirt, I have taken mine to pieces a few times, its amazing how much dust gets in there. If you put your hand near to the vent, does the air blowing out feel warm or quite hot?
