First thing I would check is clogged fans or Ram covered in dirt causing overheat and shut down.
Next, Power supply. Pretty cheap. See if you can switch it with another.

You should start you own topic jurias00,so responses don't get confusing.
But try starting with the battery out.

if it reboots then maybe a system file problem. If it shuts down, must probably for overheat issue from inside the CPU. Just a thought. Good luck.

its not a laptop; its an HP pavilionn 753 ... and it shuts down rather than restarting itself. So maybe it is over heating itself. can you give me some detail on what and how to clean it... is it just a matter of taking the terminal shell off and cleaning the fan, etc???? thanks for the help
