my computer is about a year old and it started turning itself off i would be playing a game or surfing or whatever and it would just turn off so i thought it was the power supply so i got a new one and its still doing it if you can help i would be happy and also when it crashes i have to wait like five minutes before i can turn it on again but then it works like normal until it crashes again

It sounds like it might be over-heating. Try doing A quick cleanin of the inside using A can of compressed air.

If that doesn't work then you might want to upgrade your cooling system.

Around the time that this started happening: Did you upgrade any hardware for your computer? It may be one of your individual hardware parts that are overheating, such as the processor, graphics card, etc. Most of these already have fans but if they don't you can install one on most of them.

Edit: It also might be bad ram, or A problem on your hard-drive. Try running scan disk, and A ram diagnostics program such as: Memtest86 or Microsoft's ram diagnostic program.
