Hello. Recently, I took my computer to a professional shop to get the CPU power supply examined. Once fixed, I did not have problems for about three or four weeks. Now, my computer is shutting down automatically again. However, the fan is working at full blast, the computer is not overheating, and I just got the power supply examined. What else could it be? Any solutions? I've attatched a system report from EVEREST Home Edition to this message if it helps at all. Thank you in advance!!

If you have more than one stick of RAM, take them all out but one. Does it still shutsdown by itself?

I dont have any sticks of RAM including Microdrives or my iPod. The only items connected to my computer currently by way of USB port are my printer and my mouse. Other than that, no sticks of RAM. It hasn't gone out since my last post, but I'm watching it closely. Thank you for your post. Any other suggestions?

With RAM I mean the sticks of memory inside your computer case. Is this a laptop or a desktop?

Could you open the case and look inside for the stick(s) of RAM? if there's more than one in, take them all out but one.

Here's a good explanation on what RAM is and what it does: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RAM.

I believe that I only have one. My computer seems to only power down whenever my nephew begins to play Disney's Toontown Online at www.toontown.com. I this program too big to run on my computer? It shouldn't be, because he has played it on my computer before. The last power down time was about 3 minutes ago.
