Random Vista Shutdown

Specs: Windows Vista
Hi All! I have a problem for a month now where my Vista PC will randomly shutdown while surfing the net, playing facebook games or just merely listening to music videos in RealPlayer SP.

I have resolved this issue by simply disabling the Windows AC Adapter in the Device Manager. Don't forget to restart your PC for changes to take effect!

This however might disable your PC's APM feature and will not automatically shutdown when one of your PC's devices is overheating.

Maybe you hit the nail on the head! To make sure that that is not the reason the PC is not shutting down install speedfan, most components should not get above 50 to 60'C (or in most average PC's anyway)

The only other thing I can suggest is that the computer is placed in a well ventilated area and that the fans/filters/heat sinks are cleaned regularly

Hope that this helps! (not that you probably did not already know/try this, but for some people the basics are the last thing they try!)
