    I have a HP Compaq nc8000 and it will turn off randomly in use. The power lights are off, the battery isn't too hot and you turn it on again, and then after about 15mins it'll close off again. Any help please, it does run 7 but even with XP it did it.

    Try running it with the charger plugged into it and see if it shuts off again.

    I understand that the battery is charged, but I'm talking about with the charger plugged into it. Try running the computer with the charger plugged in, and don't take it out unless it shuts down randomly again.
