    Computer Shuts Down Randomly

    So, my friend was playing an online game (, and this has happened to her several times. It never happens to me while i'm on my computer. I don't play games on my computer. My computer will just shut down randomly. The monitors will go black, but the PC never reboots. It will stay on though. I will have to manually turn it off, then turn it back on. What can I do to check and see if my components are good? They should be. They are like 2.5 years old. I bought all of them at the same time.


  2. Laptop randomly shuts down after latest Windows 10 update

    Since the latest update of Windows 10 my computer decides to randomly shut down after every couple of minutes. First the screen goes black, then the sounds stops and after quite a while the power also goes down.

    Obviously I though of cleaning the fan with a big vacuum, as suggested on My Windows 10 Computer Randomly Shuts Down . However, after doing this, the shutting down goes even quicker. I cannot even properly log-on before the shutdown takes place.

    What should be my next step?

    Ps. The computer is quited aged (roughly 3 - 4 years). The battery is dead enough such that I always need to have it plugged in an outlet. It might just be "done for" but I'm hoping to revive it for just a little bit more.

    Computer Shuts Down Randomly

    Random shut down and restart??

    Computer: Intel (R) Pentium (R) Dual cpu
    2.42 GHZ, 2.00 GB of RAM
    Windows xp

    Ever since I replaced the fan (with heat sink) the computer has randomly shut down and then restarted, at first during streaming, and now, will shut down and restart anytime. I tried to replace the graphics card to no avail. *Confused Computer Shuts Down Randomly :confused:*Mad Computer Shuts Down Randomly :mad:

    One suggestion was to replace the RAM.

    Any suggestions on how to repair my computer?
