i have a Dell Latitude D610 that will all of the sudden power off at random times. I have no idea of the cause. I have windows XP installed, It will do it with the ac adapter or with the battery. Any suggestions?
This is the Desktop section. Your Laptop problem should be reposted in the Laptop section.
One thing that can cause that is overheating. The CPU has a built in thermal sensor and if it gets too hot it will power off.
