Please and see if the processor fan is ventillating to the processor and so there is no heat build up to shut down the thermal switch. If there is dust use a good blower an brush to clean , make sure the fan works. Also the fan on the SMPS unit also must work well.
Check on all the connectors, press them all down. check the mains power .
Finally check on the power options for any changes or settings for shut down./ hibernate or sleep mode

My comuter automatic shutdown everytime i used for an hour


I suspect your computer is overheating and thats why it shuts down. Remove the fan from the processor and hoover out the heat sink and clean the blades of the fan too. make sure that any case fans you have are cleaned and working too.

Tip

Automatically Close Programs at Shutdown


When you shut down Windows, if you have any programs running you'll get a message box warning you that a program is still running. You then have to close the program and tell XP again to shut down. It's a fairly pointless warning—better yet would be if XP automatically killed the programs without issuing the warning. That way, you wouldn't get error messages and wouldn't have to close each individual application before shutting down your computer.
To have XP automatically close programs at shutdown, run the Registry Editor and go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop. Edit the AutoEndTasks key so that is has a value of 1. If the key doesn't exist, create it as a DWORD value and give it the value of 1. To disable it, either delete the key, or set the value to 0.

Is it shuting down? Or just instantly going off.

If it is shutting down, adjust the power settings.
  • Control Panel
  • Power Options
  • Make sure the scheme you want is selected. For a desktop it should be Home/Office or Always on.
  • Make sure that System Standby and Hibernate (if available) are set to the length you want.
