I've got an issue going on with my notebook PC. For a couple of months now I've been experiencing random shutdowns on my PC.
It all started when my previous power adapter got fried. Nothing really happened, the cord just melted through in the place where it goes out of the black box, a common issue.
I replaced it with a new adapter, not an original one, though. So it had a slightly loose plug. Sometimes I lost power when moved the PC too much. There's no battery inside, so power intterruption turned it all off. I fixed this replacing the faulty plug. But the PC shuts down from time to time.
It happens usually when I'm working with it. It never happened when I left it to download something over a whole day or a whole night. Some days it doesn't happen. Some days it happens twice within an hour and then nothing. On other days, from time to time I suffer from a shutdown.
There is no warning on the part of the system, no freeze, no system log message (apparently), it just dies.
What may be the issue and how to diagnose such a thing? ? ?
EDIT: Could it be a mechanical issue? Like a broken solder? After all, it's a "mobile" device.
