This may be the problem. I have one PC and when i plug in the power cord it does not fit tightly therefore it did cause the the PC to power down sometimes. I fixed that by using a piece of tape to secure the connection so it will stay in place. :thumbsup:

This could be any number of things - PSU, motherboard, CPU faulty or overheating.
Download the system analysis program 'Everest' so you can get detailed information about your system:
Everest download
Temperatures, voltages and fan speeds are shown under Computer>Sensor.

Monitor the sensors during the day and see if anything looks odd (sensors not connected will give reading which are obviously wrong e.g. 5C and can be ignored)
