View Full Version : My computer keeps shutting off?

When I play sc2, my computer will just shut off. No blue screen, or automatic restart. It just stays off until I hit the power button again. Nothing on my computer seems wrong, and there's no error message when I come back, besides the google chrome "google chrome didn't close correctly, restore tabs?"
I don't think my computer is overheating because I made sure the fan wasn't blocked and it feels only slightly warm, nothing too unusual.
Help?

My computer suddenly shut down and it wont turn back on. I plugged the power charger back into it but nothing happened, not even the light turned on on the computer. The one thing that did happen is that the light on the charger started blinking. What's wrong and how do I fix it? I need answers fast.

What brand?

Did you change anything on it before it shut down?

Maybe your power supply is playing dead. Because it happens when you're playing a game, the graphics card/CPU/everything gets really hungry for power and the PSU is underrated for what you've got hanging off it. Just beware of el-cheapo Flying Horse brands because while they'll be astoundingly cheap, they won't hold up to the rating on the box.

Hope this helps solve your problem :nerd:

By the way, welcome to PressF1! (soon to be PressF1,000,000 - time to either assign a new help key or buy a new keyboard I think :) )

Could be overheating, Check the temperatures with Speedfan if you can

Laptop I presume? How old? If battery is old, take it out and retry the charger.
