    Computer keeps turning off !!!! :(


    Hi Guys,

    I dont know that much about computers, but for the last couple of days my computer keeps turning off by itself. My computer has been making some noises lately as well.

    I have just opened up the computer and cleaned the CPU fan, and so far it seems to be ok for now (only been 20 mins).

    Is there anything else I should be doing? and are problems like this usually associated with overheating?

    RAZ

    Most motherboard are set to shutdown if the CPU temp. goes to high. if you clean it and it still does it i would recommend you get a new heatsink and fan. there cheap to buy so if that is whats wrong it do it.
