Computer randomly shuts down
A few weeks ago I was having abit of a clean. I needed to get behind the computer desk so I disconnected everything and rested it all on my bed... long story short, the computer fell off the bed. I didn't think it would be too much of a problem because it was a relativly short drop. Also, I suppose I should mention that the computer worked flawlessy before this incident.
Right, onto the problem. After it dropped, I immediatly set it all back up again and switched it on. It booted up... Log In screen, windows loads, everything is running fine. Until a couple of hours later, while I was gaming, it randomly shut down, without any warning. I booted up again, started the game up again, half an hour later it randomly shuts down again. This has been happening consistently (well, every time i've bothered to try and use it in the last month).
I am not at home at the moment so I can't list the total hardware spec... if it's needed, I will reply from home later.
It will also be important to mention that everything on the computer runs as normal. There are no boot up anomolies, no beep sequences, no error messages, its doing nothing that it wasnt doing before... except shutting down without warning.
After a few attempts at using it in this state, I have noticed it seems to shut down when it is in heavy useage. For example, one night I was gaming and listening to music and I couldn't keep it alive for more than half an hour. Another time I booted it up just to test my theory... I left it alone and it stayed on for 2 days straight... thinking the problem was solved I started to use it... 20 minutes later it shuts down. I am thinking, because of this that it may be the RAM? But I should also note that once or twice (usually after a random shut down) I try to boot up and it hasn't even got to the log in screen before it shuts down.
I also thought I may have damaged the power supply when it dropped... but I think the issues above have happened far too consistently to just be a coincidence.
Anyway, if anybody has had a similar problem or knows of any solutions, it would be greatly appreciated. Tomorrow is payday and I would really like to be able to go and buy the parts I need and get it back up and running.
