    Hi natfoster26,

    what does this error mean
    my computer has shut down while im using it
    Either I'm not understanding the question, or you've answered it yourself

    I would recommend to check your laptop manufacturer for driver updates and install/reinstall all available drivers, you'd want to check for BIOS updates too.
