Asus Laptop Model U56E shutting off at random and during boot up?
I have a Asus Notebook PC Laptop, Model: U56E I bought it in 2011
My question is:
Recently it has been shutting off on it’s own, sometimes while playing a movie which does get irritating.
After getting nowhere with antivirus software I tried reformatted the hard drive several times, also tried using it with the battery removed and reformatting with the battery removed, at first it seems to be happening after a few hours of use it will shut off on its own again, to say the least annoying.
For a laptop it doesn’t seem to be getting overly hot, stays cool to the touch, after it shuts off it will come up with the error message about being improperly shutdown and restart on its own, after a few times it want to do a DSKCHK, which eats up about twenty minutes.
I’m figuring that it is probably an equipment problem, is there a module or something I can replace to fix this problem?
Some more info:
When it shuts down randomly, it shuts off like you pulled the cord from the wall outlet without the battery in the unit, shuts down like that even when the battery was in the unit, and it always restarts, at first it had me thinking I had one of those shut off viruses, after the first reformat it got me thinking hardware problem, I am hoping someone out there has a fix it answer for me, other than go out and buy a new laptop, I am hoping for an inexpensive way to fix this Laptop computer, I would appreciate any answer that gets me closer to having this problem fixed.
