Make and model would be useful...

Have you checked all fans are running OK; and vents clear of dust. Perhaps get a can of compressed air and blow out all vents.

Other possible... fully remove power (battery too if this is a laptop). Remove RAM sticks, clean edge connectors with soft pencil eraser. Ensure the edges are clean of any debris and re-insert into RAM sockets. Then remove and re-insert eack stick again. Ensure all RAM is securely inserted; likewise any assorted connectors you can see/access,

Restore power and see if things improve?

Prior to the problem wete there any other events - error messages etc.?

It could be an overheating problem, but it could also be a problem with the power supply.

Please post the make/model of your computer, the system specs, whether there have been any hardware changes or upgrades, & also which version of Windows you're running.

"I got a error saying breaking point has been reached with numbers and stuff "

If you give us exact error messages we will be better able to help. The numbers and stuff have a meaning. I've never seen an error message that mentions breaking point.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
