[SOLVED] Cause of Shutdown

775 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  makinu1der2
Recently my laptop shutdown while playing DoW2, and I was like o ****...

Even worse it wouldn't turn on with the power adapter or battery...

So I looked up online and was told to hold the power button down for 30 secs with nothing plugged in, then boot up with the power adapter...

It worked!!!

but I am curious as to why I wasn't able to turn on the laptop after it shutdown and what holding the power button exactly does

If anyone can explain this please do :D

Re: Cause of Shutdown

Most likely cause of shutdown could have been overheating?

Basically removing the battery and power cord and holding the power buttom

drains any residual power stored in the laptop/components
