    Automatic shutdown (XP)

    My friend has a laptop and when she does certain things the computer just turns off whether its on battery or plugged in. It seems to mostly happen while running norton full system scan. Any idea why this would happen?

    My best guess is a hardware fault in the power supply, the full system scan probably puts a greater strain on the PSU than other work.
