So I have a acer laptop, model no. VA70.
I having an odd problem with the laptop to be honest. It keeps shutting down on me randomly even with a charged battery. Its been tolerable but it just shut down on me and I lost all my work for a new design I've been working on. I need any insight you guys might have.

Sounds like it could be an overheating issue. I recommend using Speccy to check out your temperatures next time you are using your laptop. [ Register or Signin to view external links. ]

As potion said check temps.

Have a look in event viewer and see what the shut down event says, post it in here so one of us can check it out.

Temps seem fine.

Kernal-Power 41 is the event when the PC reboots without a proper shutdown.

There may be an issue with the laptop battery, does this ever happen when the laptop is on charge or does it only happen when the laptop is running on battery?
