    Default My computer is randomly turning off!

    Hey guys!
    Can you help me?? My computer is randomly turning off at the most unexpected times! It isn't a virus! And I done a system recovery a couple of days ago.
    Can anyone help out?
    Any other possibilities?

    It may not be virus, but it could be due to other malware such as spyware and adware.

    Please visit PressF1's guide on malware for more information -> http://faqf1.net.nz/index.php?title=...re_%26_Viruses

    It would be good if you can give us vital statistics of your computer.

    If you don't have any malware, it could be the power supply. Do you have automatic reboot on bluescreen disabled already?

    Take the side off your case & see if the tops of any of the capasitors are bubbled up

    Check your hard drive powersupply. I had something similar happen over a year ago with similar symptoms, all due to faulty power supply which was easily remedied was we worked it out.

    All fans turning nicely?
    Is the CPU heat sink clean, or clogged with dust?
    Entropy is not what
    it used to be.
