When was the last time you cleaned your computer? Overheating from dust accumulation can cause this kind of problem.

Check to make sure no dust has accumulated in the vents. You may need to carefully open up your computer, and use a can of air to clean out dust on the components. Be aware static electricity can destroy pats of your computer. Make sure you ground yourself by touching a piece of metal before opening the computer case. You don't need to touch anything in there, however. Just carefully use the canned air to clean things out.

Good luck.

Computer just turnoff suddenly


Could be one of two most common problems?
#1
Have you ever replaced the CPU Cooler (Heatsink/fan)?
CPU Cooler fan may be working, Heatsink dirty.
CPU is over-heating = mainboard turns off
Replace CPU Cooler
#2
Power Supply fan not working causing partial failure on 5volt or 12volt side.
Replace Power Supply

There are more causes but these are most common for short-time boot problems.
Another could be hard-drive, but that wouldn't shut system down like first two would.
