My hp pavilion zv5000 has been acting strange ever since I took it apart to clean the fans (which were extremely dirty and causing it to overheat several times a day), and after that it has been having issues with the power cord. It frequently dies, at random times, however it ONLY does this when it is plugged in. On battery power it acts fine (though the battery doesn't seem to last very long). Also, it ALWAYS dies when I try and run a virus scan, and before it dies the fans speed up then cut out. I contacted HP and they told me to do a power drain, but the problem persists. Please help me.
