What could cause this problem? (laptop related)
the title pretty much sums up my question. here's the background info:
I recently finished installing a laptop (due to my desktop carputer system crashing a few times) and now, the laptop will randomly turn off. The other day it turned off twice, and today, once. One minute the laptop is on, and the next, nothing. It doesn't go through a shutdown or anything, just completly turns off.
The wiring from the desktop system has pretty much been completly removed, as the wiring for the laptop is alot different, so no wiring (power wise) is the same.
I have the carnetix CNX-P1900 DC-DC powersupply, which my laptop runs off of, so it's not like the laptop battery is just dying.
The only thing i can really think of is an overheating issue? Would this cause a laptop to completly just turn off?
I thought a laptop would stand up to vibration much better then a desktop system, and even so, i built a well padded mount for the laptop. Which kind of rules out vibration as a cause?
One thing i did do, is open the laptop and solder two wires off of the power button to make an external button for turn the laptop on. I triple checked my soldering job, and the wires are secure and nothing is toching. But what i did notice, is that the button turns the laptop on, but not off. I thought this was strange, but just figured that's how it is? So any problems with that wiring (which i doubt) would only really turn the laptop on, and not off..??
sorry for the long post, but i'm getting pretty frustrated. I thought the version 2 of my carputer would work much better then my first setup. It just seems like i have no luck with this, and after so much work i can't just rip it out and forget it..
