Unhappy PC suddenly shuts down
Hi, I've a problem. My pc sometimes shuts down suddenly and without any reasonable cause. It happens in various moments and I don't see the reapetibility of the situation.
Can it be caused from an insufficient power supply?

I've attached the system file zipped.
Thanks.
Stefano.

She means take them out and then put them back stefano...
I would download and install Speedfan so you can monitor temps and fan speeds in Windows as well.
