Dell Studio 1555 sudden shutdowns
I've attached the dmesg output with this email. The problem is that the laptop shuts down suddenly. With the Unity interface, sometimes opening the Unity menu used to trigger such a shutdown. Sometimes, putting Skype on fullscreen causes the machine to power off, and usually, a resume after standby causes the machine to shut down. By shutting down, here, I mean losing power.
I ran a memtest on this machine but got nothing out of it. Overheating can also be ruled out since sometimes it happens right after powering the machine up - right at the login screen as soon as you select your user. The laptop isn't getting very hot and the fans are running perfectly. I got the laptop dismantled and cleaned too.
