Time to clear out those dust-bunnies clogging up your cooling system.
Open up your case, take it outside and blow it off and or vacuum taking care not to dislodge any connections.
Overheating causes failures typified by mystifying shut-downs.

Computer shuts down on its own


Most likely when a computer shuts down on its own it is because the computer processor or power supply is either overheating or is under powered.
Feel with your hand around the computer case and back of the power supply (has circular fan usually/ on off switch/ and a plug goes into it)
If it is very hot you will have found your answer.
Did you just install or upgrade a processor? If so you may need to check to make sure that there is thermal compound (artic silver, etc) between the processor and heat sync. This can cause overheating and sudden shut downs. If not move on
Is your computer in a small enclosed area? Try moving it to an area with more area for ventallation and cooling.
Do you have adequate cooling/fans? are they working? if not check power cables and may need to replace the fans or install more. You can buy and install case fans pretty easily
DUST. Are the fans and imputs dirty? Keeping them clean will keep the computer running cooler and help lower temperature and avoid shut downs. If your fans/imputs are dirty remove dust by using a can of compressed air, a vacuum made specifically for pc/electronics. or you may wipe them down with rubbing alcohol and a dust free cloth.

Computer keeps shutting off every five minutes or so


Computer may be shutting od due to following reasons:

Computer Virus
There are higher chances of a computer shutting down due to the interference of a computer virus. The virus gets into the computer and fiddles with crucial sections of the operating system, which may cause the system to shut down automatically. You need to install a good antivirus software and get the computer scanned thoroughly for any malware and viruses. Also see to it that the operating system and all hardware drivers are updated.

Power Supply
The computer power supply unit is an equipment that is installed in the cabinet to provide power to the system for operation. Your computer can shut down, if there is not enough power supplied to it for handling the programs running. If you are using the computer for running intensive software such as PC games, the system would require more power than what is actually available. Another reason can be overheating of the power supply. After the power supply is used for a substantial period of time, there is a possibility of dust getting collected inside it. And this may cause it to overheat, resulting in the shutdown of the desktop computer. If the power supply is at fault, you may need to get a new one installed.

Overheating of the Motherboard and the Processor
As with the case of dust getting collected in the power supply, the computer motherboard and the processor can also collect dust, which may be the reason for their overheating. This may also be one of the reasons why your computer keeps shutting down and restarting. You need to open the computer cabinet and clean the dust off the computer parts. The CPU board and the processor can also overheat because of many applications running. If this is the case, then it is suggested to keep the running of applications as less as possible or increase the size of Random Access Memory (RAM). Bad capacitors on the motherboard is also one of the reasons, why your computer keeps shutting down very often.

The 'Automatically Restart' Setting
If you are using Windows XP operating system, there is a setting that indicates the computer to reboot if it detects an error in the system's operation. In order to check if this is the problem, click on 'Start' and 'Control Panel', then select 'Performance and Maintenance'. Click on 'System', then the 'Advanced' option, and select 'Settings' from the 'Startup and Recovery' section. You will find an 'Automatically restart' option, which you need to uncheck for preventing the system from rebooting. Read more on computer keeps restarting on its own.

These were the possible reasons, why your computer keeps shutting down and rebooting. You also need to check if the power cables are properly connected to the cabinet and to the UPS, as loose connections can also be a reason for system shutdown. The most common cause of the computer getting shut down or restarted is due to overheating of the power supply and other internal computer parts.

When i plug my dvd writer to the power supply it keeps causing my computer to shut down and start back up then shut down again


It has gone faulty and is causing a power overload and this causes the PC to shut down, so it will not be damaged. Either the power supply Inside the DVD is faulty or the DVD, is.

My computer keeps shuting down at any given time


computer abruptly shutting down does not have anything to do with hdd errors unless it tell you there was hard disk error

if computer shuts down in like a second or two, you might have a problem with the power supply unit, or the power cord that goes to the computer is loose in the tower or on the wall socket.

if the computer shuts down normally i.e. windows displaying "windows is shutting down" massage that you would get when you normally shut down pc...then you might wanna check your power plan option from the control panel. disable any hibernation/shut down options.
go to control panel, go to power option, go to edit this power option..
you should see if you have selected to shut down the computer after a given time...select this to never and it may solve the problem.
