I'd guess 65% power supply issue, 25% overheating, 10% other.

I would say to go ahead and check the temps because that's the easiest to check. When they come back as normal, grab a new power supply and put that in and it should be fixed.

It could also be a memory module problem

Yeah, run memtest x86. Also use that program they posted or speedfan, and check the temperatures of your processor and video card. Then post back.

Unhappy Re: My computer is shutting down automatically, please help.

Yesterday I started my PC and it got shut down within 30 seconds. I did not even get a opportunity to test anything.

Now I have decided that I am going to sell my piece of crap PC for good.

Sorry to hear that, but this is a great chance for us to help you build your own custom computer! Rather then buying something!

Definately a Power Supply then.

Too bad about selling it, hope someone will buy it.

Post a new topic and let CF help you build one.

I'd be willing to sell you my old Silverstone power supply. Don't know if you want it though.

It's also really loud lol.

Anyways, good luck with the new build.
