for the past couple of weeks my laptop has been acting very strange.
it will shut down or hibernate in the middle of being used, it says that the battery is dead when it isn't. i proved this by switching the same battery into another computer. the battery supposedly runs out very quickly and has a lifespan of about 5 minutes if not plugged in to AC power. at times it won't register that it's charging which will just cause it to hibernate. sometimes when i restart it, or when it's about to hibernate, a blue screen will pop up but it's so short that i cannot read what it says. other times, when i finally get it back on, it will say that my system has recovered from a serious error, but it does not tell me how to fix it!
after reading some posts similar to mine, i believe it could be an overheating problem but i'm not sure.
I REALLY NEED HELP THOUGH! it's finals time and i need to write papers :tazz:
