Then is nothing more annoying than busily going about your business on the laptop, and then all of a sudden everything just goes black. For no apparent reason the laptop has switched itself off.
It is obvious that you are going to check your power source to make sure it has not come out on its own. If everything is fine and your lead is still plugged in, then the best thing to do would be to try a power cycle routine.
It is quite a straightforward routine, so do not worry about doing this. All you need to do is to unplug your power lead. After you have completed this step you can then disconnect all the external hardware that is linked to the laptop.
Next, you need to remove your laptop’s battery. The next step would be to hold down on the power button for a few seconds.
This step, although sounding strange, does work in many of these cases, especially for laptops. When a laptop is used for long periods of time it can cause static to build up around the internal parts.
This in effect can make your laptop shut down by itself occasionally. This process may sometimes work when you lose an internet connection.
After you have completed the above steps, it is time to check your power adapter, and of course your battery, but separately. If you find that your laptop works when it is plugged in but not when it is on the battery, then the chances are that you need your battery replacing. Likewise, if your laptop works on the battery but when you plug in the lead it goes off, then the power adapter is faulty and needs replacing.
Many laptops now come with built in error lights that tell you what the fault is. All you have to do is check the manual that came with the laptop and rectify the faults.
