Computer Keeps Shutting Down Randomly (Resolved).


Best Answer writertiff , 16 March 2016 - 11:45 AM

Well my son just removed the CPU fan and it was very dusty (caked) and he took that out and put a larger one in and it seems to be working for now, so I'll close this. Thank you! Go to the full post »

My PC keeps shutting down out of nowhere. It's less than 2 years old. 

 

Desperately need it to work FOR work. 

 

Any idea how to troubleshoot what's happening? It just goes off - no warning or anything. 

 

My older son built it from scratch and it's always worked great until now. 

 

Thank you!

Tiffany

Maybe hardware faults or malware.

 

What is your computer specs and what windows version are you using?

Hello writertiff,

 

Such behaviour is often caused by overheating or a flaky power supply with a bad power supply also contributing to overheating if it is under powered or faulty.

 

Please post the brand and model name or number for the motherboard, Ram (including the amount) add on video card if one is present and the power supply unit.
