When I begin typing my laptop simply shuts off. I restart the laptop and it returns to my page. I begin typing again and it shuts down. Sometimes it will allow me to type several words before shutting down...other times I can't get a word in. I did just replace the battery. A message does come up and has been coming up for months about not being able to recognize the ac adaptor.

First i will recommend you to run a PSA test.
This is done by, turning on the computer, and press "F12" under POST.
Then you'll get a boot menu, where you can choose, "Diagnostic"

This will test most of your hardware for errors.


Does it only shut down while typing?
Maybe try reseat the keyboard.
