    Zorin powering down


    I'm having an issue with Zorin 6.2 powering down while using online videos or using Wine during game play. I asked Zorin's website but they actually kicked me off the website permanently without explanation. Can someone tell me what I need to do to fix the problem or what to look for?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi and welcome

    it sounds like either a overheating or powersupply problem.
    If your bios shows temperatures, then note them after power up and directly after a crash.
    Or you could install e.g. psensor
    You must always face the curtain with a bow.

    Thank you. I kind of wondered the same thing about the temps. I may have to buy a cooling pad since it's a laptop. Otherwise, I LOVE THIS Distro.

    Ok, so apparently my laptop is overheating, so I'm taking it the fan is going out on it so I ended up buying a laptop cooler. BTW, I AM SOOOOO LOVING ZORIN!!! Too bad their website is ran by a bunch of jackasses
