Subject description: Powers off randomly. Windows and Ubuntu work ok.
 

My girlfriend has been wanting to try puppy versions for a very long time. We finally are ready, however 3 different cds make it to the desktop sometimes and sometimes they don't . The laptop just powers off randomly.
Maybe i should try booting from a usb stick, thats the one thing i havent tried. The goal is to get any puppy installed and from there we can install others.
live cd versions tried: 528, 511, 431

i have tried puppy acpi=off all this did was shut down the usb ports, it still randomly shut down.

I thought it was getting hot so i put something under each side of the bottom to keep it from sitting flat. Problem is persistant.
Tried installing usb flash, booted in, then while downloading a browser it just shut itself down in the middle of the down load.

however it doesnt do this with windows, also i put in live cd of backtrack 5 ubuntu, no problems.

So still no luck with puppy. if i try to install puppy with backtrack i can only wonder if a frugal install will still do this, i believe it will because the flash drive did. this tells me its a puppy problem, not a cd problem.

Similar problem in forum was fixed by checking the cooling vents on laptop and finding them full of dust Bunny's. Cleaned cooling fan vents and problem was fixed.

between super overheating, hanging up on the exit ,and wifi problems, i decided to give up. I put lubuntu on it, still had to fight with wifi for a good five hours, but its running good now.

Maybe some programs are able to give detailed information about the condition of hardware.

Did you have CPU scaling activated?
It is supposed to drop the speed of the CPU as temperature increases.
Do you ever hear the fan start up when running Puppy vs. running Windows or Ubuntu?
There have been discussions on the fan not starting in Puppy.

thanks postfs1, i will take a look. i still have puppy installed, several actually. we just figured on not using them. however when i can get her back off it, i will check it out.

8-bit, i tried running off just the battery ,and turning the stepping off in bios. neither helped. was too noisy to listen for the fan. scary thought the fan not running.

buford,

*Hardinfo* gives temp of machine.

Menu/system/system status and config/hardinfo hardware information

Look on left side for *sensors*.
