Computer auto shuts down regularly

December 20, 2010 at 05:02:29
Specs: Windows 7, 2
I was playing a computer game recently and my computer auto shut down for the first time ever. Thinking that it was merely an one time event of overheating, i ignored it.
However, it became increasingly frequent nowadays and I have trouble even accessing the computer log in page now. It shuts down even before i can log in - yes it's that bad.
Any ideas?

overheating is the first thought.
bad memory stick.

start by removing memory sticks 1 at a time if you have 2 sticks in pairs if you have 4 sticks,

download and install speedfan to monitor your temps.

is this a laptop or desktop?

i hate computers!
but cant help myself....

I suggest you use compressed air to blow out the fans, etc...also if you used the laptop on your bed instead of a hrad surface it would overheat.

It could also be your AC plugin or your battery may have gone faulty. First try removing the battery and try booting up with just AC power. If that works them it is probably the battery. If it doesn't boot up is is probably the AC adapter.
