    Check your power settings
    Reasons for this occurring: Overheating, Power settings, Power supply issues, and RAM related.

    Try a simple odd solution: Remove computer case that covers the ram and hard drive and simply clean away the dust build up on the vent mesh with a toothbrush.

    It is a sudden turn off, It is like someone is pulling the plug. Last time it happened, I did clean the fan and it worked fine for a while. I would say a that was a week ago. Now, I don't know what the problem is.
