I gave my daughter a laptop that I had barely used. She's had it less than a year, but her kids are on it all the time. Now she tells me that when they turn it on, after a few minutes it powers off again. Does anyone know why it would do this? I don't think it's the battery because it's had less than a year of use. I don't much about computers, just average stuff to get me by. Any help would be really appreciated. Thanks.

Thanks, I'll do that when I see her later today. She did mention that it's getting quite hot.
Is that an easy fix?

check where the adapter plugs in the back if its loose when you wiggle it, its the dc jack pins have come loose from the motherboard this can be soldered and replaced by a certified computer tech.

Thanks everyone for the reply. Actually, the problem has been resolved because someone stole the laptop!!! Jeez!!! Well, at least I'll have an idea of what the problem is if we start to have the same problems with the new one. Thanks for all your help. Oh, and whoever stole the laptop, I hope it costs them a fortune to repair it!
