I've had the same computer for a few years. Yesterday I took it apart, and now when I put it back in, it still runs fine(for about two minutes), then shuts down without warning- A complete, absolute, instant shutoff. HELP?
Also make sure you haven't accidentally pulled any thin cables off one of the fan connectors at the fan or motherboard end. They just slide on to the connectors without any locking mechanism and are therefore easy to pull off when you are poking around in there.
I always check all the cables at both ends before shutting the case.
bi-yearly cleaning. I figured it had something to do with the cpu heat sink, but after working around with that, it still shuts off randomly. I'm currently on the computer and this is the longest it has been on without shutting off(2 hrs now), but then again, it has been running idle for most of this time.
