Default Re: Help ! My other computer keeps shuting off

Try taking the side of the case off your tower then switch it on to see if it boots if it does then you can look towards a heat issue,(cleaning of the CPU FAN and HEATSINC and the inside of you case as well, check your graphics card and ram sticks are seated correctly although if it was ram you would be getting some sort of beep error.

Did his happen immediately after you ran your recovery disc or after you installed a piece of software like a driver or something?

It might just be a bad hard drive. Try booting into safe mode by pressing F8 during the boot up process.

It sounds like your CPU is overheating. GO into BIOS setup (Hitting Del) and look for a Hardware monitor.

Check for viruses, update all your drivers, or roll them back if you have just updated them before the problem started. Try running memtest and a HDD diagnostic. Test your PSU if you have a tester.
