My computer just shuts off in the middle of doing things. I then have to unplug the power supply and let it sit for a couple of hours. The last time I booted up on Sunday. With daylights savings the date and time was off. It was hours off and the date was for the end of this month.

Hi jdavenport...

A couple of things come to mind with this one...Heat and PSU.

Is there any noise associated with the shutdown...like a click or a snap? If so, this may indicate a bade power supply.

Download Speed Fan (Click on the SpeedFan 4.28 link in the second paragraph), install it, and run it to monitor voltages and temperatures.

Start SpeedFan right after you download it and post back with the temps it finds.
