My computer will randomly just shut down comletely. It will just turn off, no shutdown process. Just desktop then black screen and everything off.
It doesnt matter what I am doing at the time it just happens sporadically. Stays on for a minute or two, or ten or a bit longer then just turns off again. Once today is was on for about 45 minutes and then bang off again. Been doing this for about a week. Already tried system restore. What should I do?

Thanks All!

Have you tried cleaning the inside? Dust can choke and cause this.

If the above doesn't solve the problem you might look at trying a new power supply.

Forgot to say that it is a laptop. Should I still try to clean out dust/new power supply?
Could it be overheating or CPU usage or anything like that?

What tests should I run?
