My computer turns itself off and on

My computer has been turning itself off and on again for a while now ever since i had two power trips next to each other i think a component is fried but is still managing to run or something along those lines. It runs fine usually but every so often it will turn off with no warning and then a few seconds later turn itself back on again. Any help would be appreciated.

Sounds like an overheating problem, turning itself off and then when cooled down a bit re-starting. When was it last cleaned out, to get rid of any dust and accumulated fluff etc?

It has had a good clean out now. I will update this should I encounter the same problem.
