Random shutdowns without any sign
Hello, I bought an Asus laptop (X541UVK) a year ago and now I’m experiencing a weird problem, the PC randomly shutdown while on battery, I can sometimes turn it on again by pressing the power button but it will shut down again after seconds or minutes, at first it looks like that’s a battery issue but I don’t really think that.
I stressed both the GPU & CPU at the same time to see if the battery can deliver enough amperage and to check my temperatures, after 10mins the temperature of the CPU was 50°C and the GPU 60°C, so that means I have no thermal issues (which doesn’t surprise me) and probably the battery is fine, I restarted the same test while shaking the laptop (no worries I got an SSD) to check if the battery isn’t fully plugged or something like that but no luck, the laptop still works xD.
So what’s the problem then????
All drivers and BIOS are updated and I’m using the last version of Windows 10, also the PC works fine while plugged in the charger.
Thank you for your help I think I solved the problem so far, I cleaned the power pins on the battery and on the motherboard using a toothbrush and an electronic contact cleaner, also I added some paper around the corners of the battery for further maintaining.
I’ll test my computer for some days before approving this solution until then feel free to ask me anything.
