    may aswell get to the point now, pretty much my laptop can randomly whenever it feels like just stop working; the screen will go black, the lights on it will stay on (eg. battery light/wireless light etc.) and sometimes the sound will stop working and get stuck and start looping like a broken cd or sometimes it will just keep on going fine?

    here's a link to another forum post - http://www.techsupportforum.com/mic...vent-41-kernel-power-crashes.html#post2840490

    ^ in that forum post is a lot of information and has alot of things i've tried but none have helped; it contains screen shots, mini dump attachments and so on.

    im pretty much at the verge of taking it into somewhere to see if someone could help but i'm giving it a last ditch effort online to see if anyone can help.

    thank you for reading and if you can help me you have no idea how grateful i would be
