Hard Drive Partitioning Turns Laptop Power Off Compaq Evo N610c
Hi. I have Ubuntu 8.04 installed on my Compaq Evo N610c. I wanted to shrink the partition size so I would have room for a multi-boot. So, I popped in the GParted Live CD, waited for it to finish scanning, and then told it to shrink my 26.75 GB partition (ext3) to a 8.0 GB partition. However, this seems too take a while, so when I walk off while I do this, when I come back the power is off. It seems the computer turns off for some reason during partitioning. What might be the cause of this?
