I have a Laptop Presario 2500 and It will without notice shut itself off as if the power had been lost. I checked my power settings and changed the properties of my screensaver.

Sometimes my system will be stable for 12-18 hrs, but when I run the test it shuts down after about 30 min.

I was hoping to isolate the instance of how and why this happens. I’m also trying to get my bearings to best structure my plan of attack.

Is this problem occuring when the computer system is operating at its default frequencies?
If this is indeed the case and the laptop is not operating stable then I would recommend taking the laptop back to its manufacturer.

Can I have some more information on the problem please?
Also have you tampered with the hardware inside of it?

I have not yet tampered with the clocking settings. This laptop is about 3 years old and out of warranty. Any information that will help you, help me is ok by me. Thank you woody……………
