Notebook powers down immediately when connecting AC Adapter and during XP installation
Posted on 2007-12-06
I have an ASUS A6712U-LH notebook which is just over 2 years old, running Windows XP.
It has always worked fine but a few weeks ago it started occasionally powering down for no reason.
This problem has developed and I now have the following situation:
Notebook will power for less than a second before powering down if the AC adapter is plugged in.
Without the AC Adapater connected:
Windows XP would power off while trying to boot after displaying this error:
"Not enough virtual memory or paging file quota is available to complete the specified operation"
The title bar shows "LSASS.EXE - not enough quota"
Several attempts to recover using the ASUS recovery disks fail. The installation gets to accepe
ting license agreement stage and then powers down with no errors. Rebooting just results in the same thing occuring.
I have tried swapping the RAM to no avail.
Strange thing is, I can leave it running in the BIOS and it never powers down. However as soon as I plug in the AC adapter it will powers down.
Any idea what could be causing this strange behavior?
