Ok, so I've restarted my computer to the factory settings, but now it turns off for no reason. I've let it be for a few hours, and that helped a little bit, but it still turns off when I'm trying to use it. I have no idea what's wrong, or how to fix it.

Did you try a different outlet where it is plugged in ? Is it a surge protector ?


Sounds like it could be the PSU (power supply) , unless one of the fans are not working, say CPU one.


Try this program  http://www.cpuid.com.../hwmonitor.html  free version.


You can take a look at voltage of the PSU and fan speeds.


Best to make an image of it, post it back here for someone with more knowledge of a bad PSU can then look at it.


Make an image of this program while it is on the screen, maximixe it, press control then print screen, open Paint program left click in center.

Then in Paint upper left click paste, save the image upload it here.
