My laptop shuts down whenever, it seems, pressure is applied to the top left area of the keyboard, where the left side USB and headphone outlets are. In fact, if I rotate my headphone jack, or take it out, or bump it slightly, it may cause the laptop to shut off-- same goes for the USB outlet if I have something plugged in there. My laptop shuts down sometimes, too, when I move the screen by holding it the top and holding the bottom left corner of the keyboard, I assume because the motion puts pressure on the top left side of the keyboard. Sometimes just holding the laptop without closing it causes it to shut down. I've gotten more severe errors because the laptop has shut down AGAIN as it boots, which is concerning. This is a colossal problem, and I've yet to see any discussion or help on it.
Update the BIOS. If still, the issue remains the same.
