Not sure if I'm posting this in the right place but I'll give it a go:
My computer, a couple of years old, has started shutting itself down unexpectedly every 20 minutes or so which is obviously incredibly frustrating. The power lights all remain on, but it's essentially shut down, black screen, no sound, and can't be restarted without turning it off and on at the mains.
I figured it my be something to do with overheating, since the fan's been very noisy recently and I thought it might have been broken, but I've had a look and it now seems to be ok.
I can't run a virus scan since the comp shuts down before it completes.
Any advice please?
