Have you noticed the laptop getting hotter than usual? What do you mean by typing, i.e. word processing? I would suspect that it may have something to do with the laptop getting a bit too hot. But a bit more info would be appreciated before we can come to any conclusions.
Hello,I have a Satellite A215-S7444. About 3 years old now. Recently it shuts down while I am typing. Can browse through files or internet without problems.
I would check to see if the fan is working, it may be getting to hot because the fan is broken or has to much dust. Also I am told that if you add ram it may be causing the over heating- the system may not be designed well for thermal protection from the additional heat of the ram.
If you need a new fan
