There are several possible causes - these are the 3 most common:

1. The fan is broken - can you hear it running?
2. You are running too much background software

Open "Task Manager" and select the "Performance" tab. If the CPU usage is constantly at a high level (80-100%) you may have too many background applications running. Next click on the "Performance" tab and look at the CPU column. See which processes are using lots of CPU power.

3. You have a virus/malware. Reboot in safe mode and run a virus scanner.

Why does slotomania shut down my computer?


Does it shut down the computer completely or it just restarts it?

This might be caused by overheating. Are there any signs of overheating in the computer? or outdated video driver. Try updating your video driver. You can also install Radarsync to automate the computer's updating mechanism.

I hope this helps!

My computer shuts down for no reason if left idle for 10 minutes


the computer might be set to go into stand by or hibernation after 10 minutes of not being used. check the power settings in start -> control panel -> power. (will probably have a different name)

another cause might be overheating due to dust in the fans - blocking the airflow.

Monitor loses screen after 5-10 mins and then 5-10 seconds


Sounds more like the transformer's getting overheated/shorting internally. If you unplug it and leave it off for about 10 minutes, then plug it back in and get the 5 minutes of working video back, then I'd suspect it's heat related and something's breaking down internally.

Seems to be overheating. When you say the fan makes a lot of noise, do you mean an unusual noise or just that it is on high?
