It doesn't tell me it's shutting down, the screen just goes blank. It has a very red tint to it right now and I can't figure it out... I've tried using diffrent outlets and that doesn't work, I've switched all the plugs and such, and it still shuts off. I think there must be something wrong with the herd drive itself because the monitor doesn't shut off. :whistling:

Download and install Everest Home Edition

Run the programme, click the + next to computer, click sensor, note the temperatures and post those, after checking the video adapter drivers, run Everest minimized so you can check the temperatures every five minutes or so

Click + next to computer then summary

Look on right for display / video adapter

Look at the manufacturer’s site for the suitable drivers for your Operating System


If you are unable to find them, please post the make and model here before you download anything

Please set a system restore point before you install anything

it can be that your power supply might be failing, also check to see if computer its not clog with dust. make sure to buy a air sprayed(the ones you used to clean the keyboard) and sprayed the inside where ever their is alot of dust, especially around the Processor. Also clean ur fans that way more cool air can serculate.
