can anyone tell me why my laptop shuts off everytime i turn it on it will power off after only a minute or two. after restarting it about 10 or 15 times by taking battery out and up pluging ac from computer over and over it will finally sometimes sign on line. never the less it will never stay signed on or even keep power on for more the 20 at a time.rarely does it stay on that long. do i need a repair disk or restore disk or what the heck? thanks to any one who can help.

It sounds like your processor cooling fan is not working. Do you hear the cooling fan?? The problem it sounds like is that it(processor) is overheating and shutting down to protect the computer. Are the tilt legs down? That allows air to circulate better.

Go into the control panel and check the power save options. Set them to never be turned off. If that don't work it's either the motherboard or power supply.
