BT5, laptop random shutdown
I have installed Backtrack5 on hdd with dual boot Vista on my Acer Aspire 5315.
Vista works fine but when I spend 10 - 20 minutes on backtrack, the laptop just shuts off. mostly when I ran an application like wireshark or ettercap-ng, but not always the case.So I don't think its a software problem. As 90% of the time it is random shutdown.
I have a faulty battery, which only lasts 5 min, but I am always on AC power supply. When Backtrack starts it gives me a message at the bottom right saying that my battery is faulting and only has 30% power, yet I am on AC power. I have removed the battery and only used AC but when I boot BT5 it just stays on a logo screen and no command to log in. So what could I do next. Please remember that I am a newbie.
