You will need to check your event log in order to pin point where it is shutting down, thus solving the problem as it could be any number of things.

Computer get hot and shut down


Clean the fan. The fan is probably getting hot and the computer has an automatic shut off. To help with this issue, update the bios of the computer. Just google your computer type and the newest bios.

HARD DISK MAINTENANCE
Hard disk maintenance should be carried once a month to make your computer run efficiently. This removes redundant and temporary files, recovers disk space and speed up hard disk access. Disk Cleanup should be done first - Click My Computer - then right click on the C drive then click Properties, then click Disk Cleanup - let it examine the C drive then it will calculate the amount of disk space it will recover, tick all the boxes to recover the maximum disk space and then Click OK and then Yes to perform these actions. If you have a D drive then repeat these steps on this drive too. Next the C drive needs to be Defrag. This process converts fragmented files into continuous files and this speeds up disk access and makes the hard disk not work as hard. Click on Start - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - Disk Defragmenter - click to highlight the C drive and click Analyse - then click Defragment. When this is completed repeat these steps for the D Drive if you have a D drive. Disk Cleanup and Defrag can take a long time to complete, especially if these tasks have not been for a long time.

Acer 4720z. sluggish performance


The first thing is always make sure that you dont got any trojans, viruses, worms, or spyware on your computer.

www.avast.com Offers a HOME EDITION free Virus scanner,
Download this
Install
Remove your computer from the internet, and do a FULL SYSTEM SCAN

Step 2, would be just cleaning out the files and cookies on your computer though internet explorer.

In Internet explorer click on "TOOLS"
Then "Internet Options"
under "Browsing History, under the general tab click "Delete".


Please rate me and give me feed back, ty for your time and I hope this works for you.

HP Pavilion zv5000 Turns off every 10 mins and restarts itself?


When the computer is on try using that computer cleaner compressed air that comes in the can on the fan that is not working. If you hit it with the compressed air and get the fan to spin and then it starts to spin on it's own the fan could be sticking. This will cause overheating and the computer could shut down like it's doing. Also does it do it when the battery is on or a/c power or both?

type the Administrator password if any or simply press "Enter".
At the command prompt type-"fixboot"
once done restart your computer normally.

G5 Mac Desktop freezes at random


First you need to run some maintenance (which in itself may solve it) to rule out software issues, so start here...  
Resolve startup issues and perform disk maintenance with Disk Utility and fsck
 
Mac OS X: How to start up in single-user or verbose mode
 
If that doesn't help, try booting into Safe Mode and see what happens, if it comes up hopefully another restart may solve, if not, you can at least use this as a starting point to try and resolve. Safe Mode will allow you to get around, surf, etc...
  
What is Safe Boot, Safe Mode?
  
Mac OS X: Starting up in Safe Mode

If Safe Mode comes up alright, I would install AppleJack, excellent troubleshooting article can be found here... Troubleshooting Tools: AppleJack
 
Another excellent free tool for performing maintenance is Onyx (be sure to download the right version for your system). Install the package, then run it, it will check your drive and the structure, after this, click on the automation tab and check on everything for Maintenance, Clear Cache, Cleaning, and check on Reset -> LaunchServices database and Mail's Envelope Index. When it completes, restart. Repeat any time something seems flaky, if not try to run at least once a month.

My acer extensa 5620z has just started to shut itself down and restart today. It has done this about 5 or 6 times now in the last hour. The last time I started it up (after powering off), it had sat and...


well its an overheating issue

looks like there is no air current going inside your laptop so its one of two issues

either you are putting the laptop on some soft area (like bed or sofa).

or (and thats what i think it is) the fan is not working properly or maybe not working at all.

so check the fans because if it is the fan then its normal you will have your computer restarting and shutting off once every 15 minutes range because the CPU is overheating and it should shut down to prevent CPU from getting damaged.

let me know what happened with u
