    Agreed. Most computers have a setting that allows the computer to shut off automatically if it becomes too hot to an extent in which the computer might become damaged. Make sure your internal components aren't becoming to hot. To reduce heat inside of the computer, make sure you have the proper circulation and venting. If your case has legs, it will stand a short distance above the surface so air can circulate beneath the computer. Also, if your case doesn't have proper ventillation [e.g.) improper placement of vents and/or not enough fans] it can easily overheat. Lastly, make sure your computer unit is not enclosed in a cabinet or shell. If it is located in some kind of nook in your computer desk, make sure there is plenyt of room on the left and right side of the tower, as well as no sort of blockage in the front or back of the computer. [e.g. cabinet door/backpanel] Hope this helps. :eek:

    i had a propblem just like this the other day if you have just made any upgrades check that the chip is running at the right speed and all wires are connected inside the box if not just clean all of the fans and rest of the case (as said above) if this still does not work you have either got faulty software. viruses, not enough memory, or your power supply is broken
