Computer Keeps Shutting Down ???

  g4fne72 19:40 19 Jul 07

Can anyone give me an idea as to why my computer would keep shutting down whilst in use & without warning. It then needs to be left a while before it will allow me to turn on again

My settings are set to "always on" & "hibernation" mode is not activated.

It seems to be getting more frequent ... 3 times so far this evening !!!

Any advice would be appreciated

The first thing that pops into my mind is overheating, check the fans and case are clean and still running, also check the temperatures to see if it is that that is causing it.

you might have a fan failing on the cpu or the cpu heatsink and case vents might be clogged with dust and fluff.

You need to take the side off the pc case and see if all fans are working and check how clean it is.

Other possibilities are a failing power supply or power supply fan.
