Hi GUys

I have a self built machine.
I leave it one 24/7
Every few weeks or so I wake up and its not on.
So I reboot and its all OK.

But today it has turned off suddenly while I am using it several times.

It just turns off really quick, so warnings, nothing.

Would you suspect the power supply or the mother board or the video card ?

The only thing I can thik of to try at the moment is to remove the video card.

Possible overheating?

Is it full of dust bunnies?

Is the title supposed to be some sort of joke?

Specs please.

No the heading is some sort of typo!

(I wish forum would let you edit the titles)

(Perhaps my machine crapped out just when I was typing the last "t" he he

I don't do any sort of gaming or high cpu intensive activity.

Could be dust - will go and get some compressed air.
