Thumbs down Computer randomly turning off? - April 13th 2010, 02:16 AM

Haha, I've been in here a lot lately.
So my computer keeps turning off. There's no real pattern or reason behind it, it'll just shut down without warning. Sometimes, it won't turn on, either. What can I do?

If it's a laptop, then there might be something wrong with the battery. I'm not very smart when it comes to computers, though. xD
But I suppose that would always be something to check.

What type of computer is it, a desktop or laptop? Sometimes computers turn off automatically when they get too hot to protect themselves from heat damage.

It could have a virus do a spyware scan and remove any threats if found. It could also be overheating make sure all your fans are working.

Everyone is born right-handed. Only the greatest overcome it.

Oh my godddd mine was doing this a while back, it would randomly shut off and I would have to unplug it for like 2 minutes before it could turn back on. I ended up having a Trojan Virus and had to take it into a guy to get fixed, I was also really low on ram.
So if I were you I'd take it to someone to check it out and get fixed, it could be on the verge of crashing and you could lose all your stuff

where I am able to forget for one minute,
exactly how lonely I am.
I live for those moments.
Is that pathetic or brave?"
