Could you maybe be more specific? Tell us what OS (such as windows xp, mac, etc.), when it usually does this, how long its been doing this, and what happens when it does turn off, and anymore information you can give us.

alright im running windows xp, its been doing this for about 3 weeks now... everytime it does turn off and reboot it takes about another 3 days before it does it again, what i have noticed when it used to do it my cpu would over heat.... because the fan sometimes would not spin on the cpu chip... but latley it has been spinning and it has not over heat so now i dont know why it does it.. it just does it randomly.. i put it another powersuppply about amonth ago i dont know if that could be it this started happening a little after i put the power supply in i dont know what else to do this is making me very mad.... but usally my cpu tempature is around 27 to 39 i have an intel core 2 duo 2.4 so if you have anything let me know! o and my power supply wattage is 600 watts

What brand of power supply? Just because it is supposedly rated 600W doesn't make it reliable.

That Apevia is a renamed Aspire. Their power supllies are not that great. Many of them die prematurely.

Good possibilty. Test with a different power supply to rule it out.

The only way to find out what is wrong is to test the components. It would also help to know of any error messages that pop up.

Do you mean leaving it on for 3 days straight it does this? If that is the case then your power supply is probably not very well and keeps overheating. See if you can try another one in it.
