Auto shut down problems


Check your Processor FAN and Heatsink lock if the heatsink firmly sit tight on your processor, sometimes the heatsink lock is lossen making the processor extremely heat and shutdowns automatically, if its ok, then try replacing your powersupply.

Shut down icon


That is a strange problem.
I will help you to create a shortcut on your desktop for that icon, whenever you need to shutdown your computer, just click that shortcut on the icon.

Right click on the Desktop.
Left click on New > Shortcut.

In the Type the location of the item: textbox enter
%windir%\System32\shutdown.exe -s

The -s parameter is used to shut down the computer.

The following two parameters can be used with -s:
-f Forces running applications to close without warning.
-t xx Set timeout for shutdown to xx seconds.

The following command would shut down instantly.
%windir%\System32\shutdown.exe -s -f -t 00

Click the Next > button.

Shutdown My Computer (or some other name of your choice)

Click the Finish button.
