Re: Force shut down on Fedora 16

It normally doesn't happen. However, when I am watching flash-videos on the browser, both chrome and FF, the laptop switches off suddenly after a while.

I believe that this is perhaps because of over heating. The laptop is pretty old (32bit), but it runs Ubuntu 10.04 with out a hitch and I see now reason why it shouldn't be able run F16. I tried googling, but nothing turned up.

Any suggestions? or Resources I can look up?

Sounds more like the dual video card problem, does that laptop have two cards?
