    Did you check the capacitors on the motherboard & made sure there are no leaking capacitors?

Hello sir, before we blame the motherboard, there are several reasons why the computer is switching off.

  1. A bad power supply box. A bad PS unit can make your pc switch off. try replacing it with a new one.
  2. A virus that turns off the PC. This is a new virus that modifies you windows setup to restart your PC at logon or turns off unexpectedly, Reinstalling the OS will solve the problem but make sure your back up files are clean.
  3. over heating problem. install extra exhaust fan on you chassis, make sure hot air is going out and cool air is going in.
hope this helps
