    Greetings, I have a problem. My pc is shutting down on its own randomly. By randomly I mean today it shut down 3 times but yesterday it didn't shut down at all. It doesn't make any weird sounds. It doesn't happen when I do something specific. It doesn't give me any warnings or errors. One moment is working fine and the next moment is off like someone pulled off the wires. I already checked if the wires are properly connected.

    This start happening during the summer. I was in an island for 4 months but the island had an issue with electricity failures.

    Please help, I have no idea what this could be :(

    Overheating? Have you checked the temperatures the computer is running at?

    Please also try Disabling Automatic Restart on System Failure.
    - tap of F8 to open "Advanced Boot Options" upon turning the computer on
    - select "Disable Automatic Restart on System Failure"

    When the problem reproduce, If it's just an Software problem should stop on an error code instead of turning off. The error code will help us identify the problem. If we got no error message, it's a hint of Hardware problem.
