    Hi Guys and Gals, it's been a while. My comp is starting to play up on me...randomly turning itself off for no apparent reason, I have run a Virus scan using AVG (latest version) and according to results all is clear...Any suggestions?? Cheers

    moved to correct forum as not a virus\spyware issue. next time it shuts down, restart & go into the bios to hardware monitor to see what the cpu temperature is at & the what the cpu fan is spinning at. check the capacitors on the motherboard that none are domed or leaking brown stuff.
