I have the following question:

My laptop randomly shuts down, only if I move it. Sometimes it shuts down, sometimes it doesn't. I keep my laptop on for 12+ hrs a day, and it never shuts down, given I don't move it. when I move it, sometimes it shuts down, sometimes it doesn't. I don't hear anything rattling when I shake my PC. The move could be a 4-cm move and it'll happen, or it could be a whole 2 meters etc.

Any guesses on why? I've had this computer for 4 years without any problem like this before.

Please let me know where I can put my question.


I think the correct site is Super User. It is a site related to "general computer stuff".
