I'm not sure why but my computer suddenly started shutting down randomly, no warnings nothing, I doubt it's a virus because I haven't downloaded anything in a while and that it just started today. I'm able to power back my computer back on, but it's just random no warning and everything shuts down, and I'm not sure what the initial cause of it is, and I was wondering if you guys could help. Thanks so much !

Download Speedfan (The download link is to the right), and install it. Once it's installed, run the program and post here the information it shows.
The information I want you to post is the stuff that is circled in the example picture I have attached.
To make sure we are getting all the correct information it would help us if you were to attach a screenshot like the one below of your Speedfan results.

To do a screenshot please have click on your Print Screen on your keyboard.
  • It is normally the key above your number pad between the F12 key and the Scroll Lock key
  • Now go to Start and then to All Programs
  • Scroll to Accessories and then click on Paint
  • In the Empty White Area click and hold the CTRL key and then click the V
  • Go to the File option at the top and click on Save as
  • Save as file type JPEG and save it to your Desktop
  • Attach it to your next reply

Please download and run Hardware Monitor
Installation (setup version only)
HWMonitor is a hardware monitoring program that reads PC systems main health sensors : voltages, temperatures, fans speed.
The program handles the most common sensor chips, like ITE® IT87 series, most Winbond® ICs, and others. In addition, it can read modern CPUs on-die core thermal sensors, as well has hard drives temperature via S.M.A.R.T, and video card GPU temperature.

Sometimes the fan will spike, not exactly sure which ones and my computer starts to get louder too like as if something were loose in there but it goes back to normal.. So I think it might be overheated. But here it is.
