I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop... Vista was preinstalled but did a clean upgrade to windows 7 Ultimate shortly after its release... my computer shuts off automatically if CPU is at 100% for only a minute or so... It is not an over heating problem because when the computer shuts off I feel the outside edges of the computer and the computer is NOT hot... it doesn't shut down, it is off completely and the hard drives don't wind down or anything (or just doesn't sound like it) everything just abruptly stops when the computer shuts off!!! it's really a BIG problem that my computer abruptly shuts off because I do a lot of freelance music and video rendering for people who ask... and most of the times it hits 100% is during those renderings and it is costing me money having to restart or even completely redo work for people due to this issue!!!
