That's like stating my car was going down the road, then suddenly died. What is the problem?

Open the hood, take a look. Maybe it's something obvious.

Same thing with a computer.

1) Computer unplugged from power, open the computer case. See if the Processor fan is dirty, and the computer case fan/s.

If so use a can of compressed air for computers, and clean.

[NOTE*
BEFORE you reach inside your unplugged from power computer, observe Anti-Static Precautions ]

2) See if there are Electrolytic Capacitors on the motherboard.
Bad capacitors for the motherboard voltage regulator circuit, will cause rebooting.

3) Power Supply

Shutdowns can be caused by many things. If you have your pc setup for automatic updates, some updates require a reboot and will do that automatically. Normally you can prevent that from happening by changing the settings from automatically updating to notify me first before updating.

The shutdown can also be caused by the cpu overheating. Your computer will automatically shut down to protect itself.

Shutdowns can also be created by a infected computer. Malware can cause this.

With out further details, such as what you were doing at the time of the shutdown it's difficult to say why your system is shutting down.

I can say that normally if its a update your system will shut down and reboot, not always, but usually.
Not a lot of help but additional information is really needed. What you are doing, brand of pc, if you have loaded new software or hardware, as much information as you can provide would help.

Sometimes, just goggling you problem on line with the make of the pc will help you find the answer you are having. Many times the problem you are having has already been addressed and a solution provided.

Tip

Create One-Click Shutdown and Reboot Shortcuts:


First, create a shortcut on your desktop by right-clicking on the desktop, choosing New, and then choosing Shortcut. The Create Shortcut Wizard appears. In the box asking for the location of the shortcut, type shutdown. After you create the shortcut, double-clicking on it will shut down your PC.
But you can do much more with a shutdown shortcut than merely shut down your PC. You can add any combination of several switches to do extra duty, like this:
shutdown -r -t 01 -c "Rebooting your PC" Double-clicking on that shortcut will reboot your PC after a one-second delay and display the message "Rebooting your PC." The shutdown command includes a variety of switches you can use to customize it. Table 1-3 lists all of them and describes their use.
I use this technique to create two shutdown shortcuts on my desktop—one for turning off my PC, and one for rebooting. Here are the ones I use:
shutdown -s -t 03 -c "Bye Bye m8!" shutdown -r -t 03 -c "Ill be back m8 ;)!"
Switch What it does
-s Shuts down the PC.
-l Logs off the current user.
-t nn Indicates the duration of delay, in seconds, before performing the action.
-c "messagetext" Displays a message in the System Shutdown window. A maximum of 127 characters can be used. The message must be enclosed in quotation marks.
-f Forces any running applications to shut down.
-r Reboots the PC.

PC get shutdown automatically


It can happen in several cases. Like:1. If your processors cooling fan does not run properly or stops running , your processor gets over heated and will automatically shutdown to prevent damage of your motherboard. In this case check this first, If is runs but not seem so smooth, just clean it- dust can jam the cooling fan.

2.If your heat sink under the cooling fan is not perfectly fit on the processor, cooling fan will not able to cool it and will result your machine shutdown!


3. In case of Bad power supply, it can also happen. Check your power supply.


4.If your machine have defected RAM or became defected, it may happen. In this case you may have blue screen with message before shutdown your machine.


5. If you have operating system of Microsoft Windows, please check your hard drive for virus. Virus can shutdown machine with a common period of time! Damaged OS which occurs often in windows operating system also can force to shutdown machine.
Please check which one is in your case. Please mention problem details like something unfamiliar for further query.

First reboot your computer in safemode by powering it down, turning it back on, and pressing F8 as it boots up. This will allow you to lower your resolution back to an acceptable level so you can shutdown and reboot again normally.

As far as the automatic changes in resolution, the problem is typically with the game itself and not your pc or monitor. I have experienced this with certain games and all other games worked well before and after the problem with the specific game. The actual game you were playing when it happened would help narrow it down if you wish to post it. Hope this helps.

Always shutdown my IBM ThinkPad A21m 2628 PC Notebook


It must be a processor overheating problem, check the vents are not restricted and if the fan is always on or never comes on because of a faulty temp setting then theres a overheating problem and the processor will shut down before any damage.
