This could be a virus or a power issue. If your battery is charged and you are connected to power as well and you are having this problem you most likely have a virus. It is possible you have a problem in your power settings though, check your power settings in control panel and set everything to Always On for both on battery and on direct power and see if you have the same problem. If not your system is not detecting use or you need to adjust these. By default the computer will automatically shutdown if not used for a period of time or when battery power reaches a certain level. If you still have the problem after resetting the power options you need to have the system checked for viruses, that are a few nasty ones out there that do just this and they are difficult to get rid of.

Possibly overheating.. You'll have to check the Fan/Heatsink assembly to see if the heatsink fins are clogged
when a laptop/netbook overheat it triggers the thermal controller and your system is automatically shut down to prevent further thermal damage... this can happen instantly as soon as it's powered on, or at any other time...

Could as well be failing or misseated RAM

or Hard Drive is Full

or Corrupted Files/Virus/Trojan

Why does a MSI VX600 laptop PC shut down frequently?


It might be overheating. When your PC shuts downs and it's hot to the touch in some areas you might want to try this: I would buy a bottle of compressed air and I would clean/blow out the fans and exhaust port/s.

My acer aspire 4930 laptop shut down frequently while working


Hi

Maybe you are using this laptop for a quit a long time now without cleaning? you need to clean the exhaust fan. As the thermal protection shuts down the system once the temperature reaches its limits. Cleaning the fan will solve the problem.

I was running the program "windon Defender" on it and walked away. When I returned the computer was off and wasn't turn back on.


The Windows Defender Application is the Antivirus Software which will be pre-installed with the Windows Operating System(Windows Vista, Windows 7).
The Computer will always Shut down after any Windows Updates or any Operating System Updates are downloaded and installed.
If you are connected to the Internet and running Windows Defender, the Computer will automatically download the Updates for the Windows Defender Application.
Once the Updates are downloaded and installed, the Computer will prompt for a shut down.
The count down will be for 10 seconds.
After 10 seconds, the Computer will install the downloaded Updates and shut down.
This might be the reason for the Computer to shut down while using the Windows Defender.

If the Computer still shuts down randomly, the issue might be due to overheating.
All the Processors in Notebooks are designed to shut down automatically, if there is any overheating issues.
The overheating issue mainly occurs due to the malfunction of the Cooling fan.
If the Computer shuts down frequently, the issue might be due to the above factors.
It would be better to get the Unit examined at the Service Center.

My computer has been frequently shut down


When Windows does not shutdown properly it can leave behind a lot of files that will cause your system to run slowly. I recommend you download and install CCleaner (http://www.ccleaner.com/) run this program once install. It will clean up these files and help with system performance, you can also run the Registry cleaner in it as well, this will find and fix registry issues. The reboot your computer after these steps are done and seen how it performs. I install this application on all computer I support and run it daily, the users could not be any happier with the performance. Another step I recommend you do after this is Defrag the drive, with help with performance as well.
