Customer Question

My Asus Chromebook repeatedly shuts down when operating on battery alone and when the storage gets below 50%, particularly down around 35%. I can restart it, but this soon repeats again.

Are you familiar with any setting on Chromebooks that could cause this?
Expert:  Jay D replied 4 months ago.

it certainly shouldn't be shutting down like this if the battery have 35 - 50 % left, I suspect that the battery is faulty, yes I am familiar with chromebooks.

I'm afraid that was a fairly iffy answer to my problem. I am not impressed enough by it to spend another $39. Gary

you don't need to spend another $39 that is optional and an automated popup generated by the site.
