Hi, maybe you people can help me. I have an HP Pavilion N5270 laptop that was working just fine untill one day when it started suddenly shutting down without warning. it just goes blank. my first thought was the battery so i tried without a battery only connected to AC. not it. i then tried several things to keep it cool because i thought that it maby overheating. not it. just to be sure that it wasnt video i hooked it up to an external moniter. not it. maybe the hard drive /virus? i removed the hard drive and just powered it up and went into BIOS. not it. nothing i tryed gives me any clue to what this is. i have found through searches that this is a fairly common problem with HP N500's but i still havent found any answers. HP acts as if they never heard of such a thing.
