Question about Samsung Q430 Laptop

1 Answer

Hey, I have a Samsung laptop which recently started to just power off (no shut down screen). It shuts down whenever I play League of legends or else whenever I'm running a couple different program

A couple weeks ago I downloaded league of legends and started playing. Now whenever I play League my comp just powers off. But my comp also powers off now whenever I'm using a few applications on my computer at once.

    What do you mean by #4 browse computer for driver software? Can you go into more detail in the further steps?

    Thank you for helping. Btw it only shuts off when the charger is in and I'm running these programs. It's kind of weird, but when its not charging it works fine.

M55-S135 Randomly Powers Off Whenever Moved


The only problem i see here is the Battery contact with your laptop.
Its somewhere loosely connected. Just get it checked or you can test it yourself, hold the battery tight to your laptop and shake it and test it like it will shut down in any other case, if its not, then surely its a battery loose contact problem.

Hope this helps.
