comment (seemingly) random shutdowns on Acer Aspire 1640, Ubuntu 10.04
After all it turned out to be the power adapter which did not keep the proper voltage. After replacing the junk, it works smooth back again.

I will have a look next time that happens. I'm also thinking it might be voltage fluctuation. The adapter I've got is not a branded product, rather some cheap replacement. I've order a new one just for curiostiy.

It ain't memory problem. Memtest didn't give any error messages.

Thank you for this tip about the cable. I'll check this out. I can't afford an OS reinstall - what if dies in the middle and messes up my current installation? I had a Windows installation but when Windows XP dies on shutdown it damages the hard drive. No such problem with Ubuntu.

The point is it nothing really specifically power-consuming. Sometimes it's just SSH console operation, the other times it's youtube. Sometimes I'm running a Virtualbox Photoshop and Illustrator for a whole day at work and nothing happens... Also, haven't noticed any thermal funny things, it's stable at ~60 C degrees. But I'll dive in and look for some dust or anything like that.

Could you suggest any decent memtest application for Ubuntu?
