I have an HP dv4-1155se laptop with ati video, amd turion x2 ultra dual core mobile zm-82 2.0ghz, 4gb ram, running windows 7.
Even before I installed windows 7, my laptop would randomly shut down whenever it wants to. Since my laptop has been out of warranty, I decided to open it up to clean it. I saw a bunch of dust built up and thought that was the culprit. I pieced everything back together and the laptop still shuts down randomly. I thought it was running too hot so I placed a cooling fan below the laptop and it still shuts off.
I searched and have yet to find anyone with this problem. I bought a new hard drive, thinking that would fix it since the one that came with the laptop failed the test in the bios. I tried testing the rams and they passed.
Any ideas why this is happening? And perhaps it's not my specific model, but the dv4 laptops itself. Anyone else suffering what I'm suffering?
