Hmmm, tricky one, do you get any memory dumps (Memory.dmp in the root of %windows%)?

If it simply shuts down immediately, it's likely to be a hardware issue (PSU, most likely), occuring when your hardware is being taxed.

However, I would first check your event logs (Start | Run | evenvwr | Click ok) | Expand "System" and look for events around the time of the shutdown | Post back here anything you're unsure of.

The error comes ' windows cannot find evenvwr , make sure that you spelled correctly'

And No I did not got any memory dumps, and my PSU is 1 month new,450w , though i smelled some thing burning 2 months back, but as soon as I cleaned the whole system with an air blower, the problem was solved and I remember my pc worked great till now, also to add, the fan of my grafix card also stops sometimes due to which the system hangs and the screen goes blank, so i restart it manually in that case, do u think grafix card is causing any trouble?

My fault, I typo'd:


If it's overheating, then your machine will shutdown immediately (you can check which temp it's set to in the Bios).

I'd suggest checking another GC, to confirm the issue, if the issue doesn't reoccur then you can be sure it's the GC, which means either repair or replace, sadly.
