Default Computer on and off

My computer just started to shut off and on all by it self, any one have an idea of what can cause this?

It could be heat related and from the description you give of your problem (no error code) I would guess you need to disable Auto Restart to see an error code.

Control panel > System > Advanced Tab > Start Up and Recovery > Settings button > System Failure > Uncheck Automatically Restart.

By doing this you will now see an error code next time your pc shuts itself off. Write down the error code and post it back here.

Also you can check your events log - Right click My Computer > select Manage > expand Event Viewer > select System

Look for errors and if you don't understand what the error is displayed Google it.

I use AVG but give Avast a run if you feel like it, I've never used it personally.

It ranks pretty well in this comparision LINK

Avast is really good in my opinion. Out of AVG and Avast! I choose Avast!

Actally I posted in the wrong thread, sorry xD
Sometimes they don't tell you if they reformat, ask them if they will before you take it in to teh repair shop.
