Hi Friends,
My computer frequently shuts down while I'm using it. I'm using the latest version of Windows XP. If anyone has any suggestion please put forward as I need to solve my problem.

Most modern PCs and laptops are designed to shut themselves down when they get too hot, (or else they will literally melt themselves). The overheating could be caused by blocked vents, dust/dirt buildup, one or more dead fans, etc. If it's a laptop and you're laying it on a pillow or other soft materials when using it, you're probably blocking the vents on the bottom and/or sides of the laptop.
