Over heating? make sure the pc is fairly cool at the fan on the back of the case.

or try a system restore to a point in time that you may recall when the computer was stable.
backtrack and see if you can pinpoint to a program or utility that you added to the pc that may have started the crashing.

I would need more information to get this right on the first try, but I do have a couple of suggestions. Is there a lot of dust in the case or on the fan in the back? I would try to blow all of that out. Also, if you open the case you should be able to see if the fan on the processor is spinning. It could have so much stuff on it that it can't turn. Clean that out if it is dirty. Last, you could have a problem with the power supply. I can't tell for sure because there isn't enough informat.
One last thing, are you getting anything about the rpc server before it shuts down? If you are you have a virus. Download a free 30 trial of Vipre from Sunbelt Software to clean it up.

Why does my computer keep shutting down?


Is Windows crashing or is it just shutting down without warning? If it is without warning, then I would suspect a failing power supply. May want to look at getting a replacement power supply.

Possibilities:
1. overheating, and automatic shutdown.
Check that the fans are working.

2. bad RAM, causing "random" crashing.
On a "good" computer, download the free 'MEMTEST86+' software, and run it, to test your RAM.

3. Leaking capacitors on motherboard, causing "voltage-spikes", leading to "random" errors.

4. Bad disk-drive. Remove the disk-drive.
Connect it as a "slave" drive in another computer,
and run 'CHKDSK' ("Check Disk") to look for problems.
