Hi guys


I have a windows 10 desktop pc.


Whenever i start it up from scratch (ie a power up, not reset) it runs for about 5 minutes then without any warning shuts down once. It does this religiously every time i startup of a morning. After i restart it the computer seems to run ok from this point onwards although sometimes, i get system crashes when i enter Google Earth and zoom in or am running media software. I think the two issues are caused by different things, and its the sudden shutdown approx 5 minutes after startup i am most concerned about.


It has not been doing this for very long and i get zero warning or any error messages before or after, and I am wondering if anyone has any ideas on how to problem solve something like this?
