Hey, I've got a annoying problem with my laptop and was wondering if I could try to get some ideas on how to fix it.
Lately, my HP pavilion has been suddunly shutting down(in like the way it does when it overheats) what seems to be prematurely, with maybe about fifty percent battery(but it isn't always at this point in time), when I don't plug it in. There's no indication of when it will shut down, no warning, and the laptop always indicates that there's still at least some charge left when it does. I don't think the problem is overheating as this doesn't happen when the laptop is plugged in.It takes the laptop to be plugged in for the laptop to start up again.
I would try to drain the battery but its premature shutdown keeps me from doing just that.
