I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hello,

I've been lurking around on this forum for a month or two trying to find the solution to my problem but as yet I've not found it! My Advent 9212 notebook shuts down unexpectedly, usually within 15-20 mins of me unplugging the mains, and NEVER when the mains is plugged in (which seems different to the problems i've seen other people having). It doesn't matter whether I'm running any programs, the laptop will shut down even if I leave it idle. The laptop does seem to have a few overheating issues (CPU temp at the moment is 63C according to speedfan), and the fan is on pretty much all the time, but since this problem only happens when the laptop is unplugged from the mains, i'm not sure if the overheating would cause the shut down, especially as my power settings restrict the CPU to 25% of its maximum capacity when the mains is unplugged. Also, nothing happens in the Event Viewer when this shut down occurs, all it says is something along the lines of "The previous system shutdown at date / time was unexpected".

I've updated the BIOS twice with the BIOS files available on the tech-guys website, but these did nothing except change the operation of the CPU fan a little. I can't think of anything else to do.

The laptop is over a year old and is out of warranty.

Hope I've provided enough information, any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks.

drex.
