Question about my computer...



I had recently did a clean install on my computer and had thought may solve the lil problem Ive been having. I noticed that my computer would just shut down if Im running any program like spyware prg or any sort of game. Oh not to mention even when nothing is running it still shut down. I had thought about it seriously and thinking that maybe my computer might be overheating but I even put a fan to blow cool air on the motherboard and still does it. So any help or solutions would be greatly appreciated :) Thanks.

Can you check the temperature?

Have your cleaned the heat sink? I understand geeks with professional equipment use compressed air; I use an artist's brush to gently brush away the dust bunnies.:D

Another possibility that comes to mind is fluctuations in the power supply.

I freely admit that there are a number of better hardware geeks than I; I usually "sit on the bench" while the others expertly solve the problems. So, feel free to wait for more information from one of them, if you wish. I thought I'd raise my hand to offer my ideas, not only to offer help to you, but also to learn more, myself, if the others have more to say on the subject.waveysmiley
