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.

System Shut Down while playing online Games , without error message or sth


Does the PC do graceful shutdown or shuts down straight away?
If it does graceful shutdown perhaps make sure you are not pressing a shutdown button or sleep button.
If the PC shuts down completely without warning first thing to check would be the fans and interior of case in case is full of dust.

My laptop won't shut down properly!


Is it possible that you have changed the settings of what buttons do what on your system? E.g. you could have changed the power button to "switch user" instead of "shut down", to check this (in XP) go to "Power Options" (in Control Panel" and then click on the "Advanced tab" at the top, then select "Shut down" from the drop down menu at the bottom of the window.

If this is already set to shut down then maybe you could do a system restore in case another setting has been changed, restore it to before the PC started doing this.

Alternatively try actually choosing "Turn off Computer" from the Log On screen (press Ctrl + L to get to this screen, or choose switch user/log off). If you are using Vista I beleive that there is a shut-down option from the Log In Page there (which again you can access by pressing Ctrl + L on the keyboard.

Hope this helps!

Auto restart without warning


go to control panel>administrative tools>event viewer and look in the left hand listings at programmes etc and see if there are any red crosses or exclamation marks to give a clue as to the problem, but if you know it's not overheated and you have'nt recently installed any other software and recently scanned for virus and spyware it is probably a driver problem.
