I have a problem with my lenovo Laptop.
yesterday it is working just fine and i leave the room for a while and come back and it's switched off.
Switch it back on again and it goes to the desktop, loads a few icons and bits and then dies!
When i say die i mean just that, no shut down, nothing just powers off and everything is off in an instant, no shut down, no low battery warning nothing.
so it is plugged into the wall, and the same thing happens every time whether i start in safe mode or not, being a lenovo i logged into the rescue and recovery tool they have and run trhough some options in that - same thing happens while trying to use that. I can't restore the system as it will not stay on for long enough to complete the restore, i cannot run a virus scan for the same reason, i cannot do anything as it does the same thing regardless, even leaving it on the dos -select safe mode screen - it stays for a few minutes then dies.
NB the battery does not work and has not for some time!
Now that i write this it seems i may have been barking up the wrong tree and i suppose it could be a PSU issue, has anyone come across this type of thing before where it powers up for a short period and dies, is it fixable?
Any help, thoughts or advice would be welcomed before the rest of my hair falls out
