So the other day I woke up (I set alarms on my computer), then left my room to get cereal, and when I came back, my computer was off. At first, I thought the power went out, but nothing else was off, including my sister's computer. So I started it back up, and surprisingly, it didn't give me that "Windows didn't shut down properly" message that it usually does. A few minutes later, I left to use the bathroom, and it was off again. I started it back up, still no error message. So I figured it must have been installing updates and restarted itself to finish installing. I checked, however, and no updates had been installed. Later that day, I was watching a DVD on my computer, and it started playing in slo-mo for a few seconds, and I thought it was an effect at first, til my computer turned off again. So I started it back up, and proceeded to watch the DVD, and the same thing happened. So I thought maybe it was overheating or something, and decided to give it a rest for a couple hours. A few hours later, I started it back up, and started playing music on Zune. Zune has this thing where when you leave it idle and it's not minimized, if the artist you're listening to is famous enough, It'll show a sort of screensaver with a slideshow of pictures of the artist and facts about them, and maybe a bio. I happened to be listening to Escape the Fate, and the slideshow thing came up. All of a sudden, I noticed the pictures started to pixelate, then the music stuttered, then stopped, and my monitor said "no Input detected", as if my computer was off, except this time, the computer didn't turn off. I unplugged the HDMI and recconected it from both ends because it comes loose sometimes and I thought that might be it. It didn't work, though, and then a few minutes later it showed the startup screen like it was trying to restart. Then it did the no input thing again. It didn't do anything for a while, so I had to hold down the power button, and manually turn it off. When I turned it back on, it did do the "Windows didn't shut down properly", but that's because I manually turned it off. So I Selected the startup in safe mode option, and it turned off a few minutes after starting up, even in safemode. I have Norton Internet Security, so I did a full system scan. It didn't find anything, but it also didn't turn off, and I didn't have any trouble for two days. Then today, I was just youtubing, and it turned off again.
