    Hi all,

    For over 2 years my pc shuts down randomly. 3 months ago I took it to a pc repair shop and the techy analysed it and said it was not a hardware problem, but a software problem, he changed windows and added a new C drive. The pc still shuts down, but around 50% less than before I changed windows and added the new drive. Randomly as in it would shut down when videos are playing, when its all quite and in between. I have no idea what's bugging it. I do not suspect heat issues, but it could be the culprit. Thanks in advance.

    This seems to be a driver issue or Overheating as you have mentioned it yourself.

    Try to download the latest driver from http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us
    or if it is due to overheating,try and keep your PC clean and make sure your PC is not in a hot surrounding like exposed to sun from a window that could also cause overheating.

    Hello Ezzie, I downloaded the latest drivers, thanks for that. I had never updated them before. Maybe that could save it.

    It has 5 fans, and its always in a cool environment. No dust on fans either.
    Cheers.
