It could be one of several things.
try opening the computer up and blowing some air all around the the CPU and Video chips if they aren't cooling down that can cause a shut down. Make sur eyou touch the outside of the case and anything you put inside does the same as well before going in.
Your fan may be bad do you hear it come on?
You may have a software issue or yes it may be your SMPS.

My LG Flatron L1515S 15" LCD goes on blank scree(black screen) after displaying for 2 to 3 seconds and when i switch off and switch on monitor, again it is going blank after displaying for few second....

sitaramjava, Problem not new one!!! When lcd screen goes "black" point bright flashlight (torch) 1" (3-4cm) from lcd panel to determine if you can still see desk-top icons!!! If icons are visible, unit SMPS is in partial shutdown mode. If not visible then SMPS is in full shutdown mode. You or qualified CCFL back-lit lcd monitor technician will need to make repair to units internal SMPS/ CCFL inverter supply. Your monitor isn't any different than any other brand in it's basic design and operation!! Read my and other CCFL backlit lcd monitor technicians FIXYA profiles to see if you can repair it. 12fixlouie

PC not booting when AVERmedia TV tuner card is inserted

Techguru2009: Seems you might have a conflict with your I/O. You need to reset the bios either by loading defaults or just remove the CMOS battery for ten minutes. After start the computer without the pci card. If all is well, then shutdown. insert the card in a different slot on the motherboard. Power up and the bios should recognize the update. Hope this helps.
