Question about E-Machines Computers & Internet
It could be a Power Supply issue or Hot chip condition on the motherboard due to lack of Air Flow for cooling or a problem with the motherboard. The first things I would check for are a Virus and Air Flow. There are a couple of Viruses out there that will do this. Get a can of compressed air and open the case and clear all the air channels and blow the dust out of it. With the case open turn the computer on and make sure the Cooling fan on the CPU works and the fan in the Power supply is working. If the CPU fan is not working replace it. Same with the the power supply fan, you would have to replace the complete power supply if that one is faulty. If your Video card has a fan on it make sure that is working as well. You maybe able to replace that fan if it's not but you may have to replace the video card if it isn't working. That would present you with a situation that the Video shuts down but the rest of the computer stays running. You will also want to check your power saver options and make sure you don't have them set to shut the computer down on time. I use screen savers and Hibernate settings to protect the screen from burn in but rarely actually shut down my computers.
