Question about Computers & Internet
The fan of this unit noticed is not running,the cpu is shutting down after 10-15 minutes after beginnig to record an off screen program
Yes, but the RPM's of the fan will change when the heat sensors reach a pre determined temp. You didn' mention your Make. Model of computer or your OS? Overheating will shut down the machine, this is done to prevent damage to components. You may have a bad fan or sensor, or worse. What is the age of the machine? Try to use SpeedFan: http://www.filehippo.com/download_speedfan/. Not knowing your machine, I'm not sure it will work with your hardware.

SOURCE: CPU shutting down.
Replacing a CPU fan is easy, but be carefull, the CPU will have old thermal grease on it, so unlatch the CPU at the same time you take the fan off. Because the CPU will come up with the fan, so unlatch the CPU pins, to release the CPU pins, when taking the fan off. And when putting the new fan on the CPU, & the fan nust be smaller then 80mm, the sell just CPU fans. Make sure you put on thermal grease on the CPU, so it won't over heat & will protect your CPU, also don't cake on the grease. Put on a small amout & spread it on the CPU thin. Let me know if that does it for you.
Good Luck with it.

I think the problem may be that your operating system may have gone corrupt
try to enter the Safe mode (if you can )
and see if you can revert back to old settings and whether it helps or not
else you would have to
reinstall the whole operating system

May be your computer motherboard wires connection get loose or getting moisture in wires. Or there may be some earthing problem in ur power switch. First, check the wires connection & tighten up properly. if problem persists, check the earthing by power tester. Check you RAM if it is properly tight in the jack.
