Are you getting any error messages when this happens?

BSOD?

Look in the Event viewer to see what errors are appearing at these times. Each entry has a date and time.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Hi Lou V -
Has there been other reasons for reloading the OS 2 times, or is this only related to this problem -

Thank You -

If it is shutting off without any warning or errors this may be heat related.

Have you tried cleaning out the inside of the case?

Check the Event Viewer to see what errors are showing up at these times. Each error has a date and time.

Go to Start> Run and type in eventvwr.msc, then click OK.

If you double click on an error a description of the error will open. I would like for you to post this description here.

Go to Start> Run and type in clipbrd.exe, then click on OK, the clipboard will open.

Highlight the description and click on the text icon, this is highlighted in red in the picture below.

The highlighted text will now be on the clipboard. Highlight this, copy and paste is in your next post.
