I wondered if anyone could help me, as I'm at the end of my tether with my computer. Basically what is happening is, I'll get on my computer for about 20 minutes, if that. And when I'm in the middle of doing something, it turns itself off. I can usually tell it's going to happen because I hear it click off etc, then the screen goes off. When I try and get back on, I could be there for up to half an hour just trying to get onto my screen name. Most of the time, it turns off before I even get to the log on screen. But occasionally, I do get as far as logging in only for it to bleep up a few seconds later. It's very frustrating.
I have asked some people and they seem to think it's something to do with the computer over heating. I unscrewed the back of my computer and hoovered inside, to see if it'd help at all. But it's still doing it constantly. At first I thought it had something to do with web cams and you tube videos. But I think it's all coincidence.
I apologise if this has been posted before but I've looked allover the net and can't find anything.
Does anyone know what I could do to stop this please? Or have any idea of what it is?
