Question about Computers & Internet
The BSOD (blue screen) is most often caused by a bad driver and sometimes by ram. Your computer can shut down suddenly if it's overheating but generally when it's from overheating it will start stuttering...running jerkily...before it shuts off. The screen will semi lock up, things run slow. Obviously it will also feel hot either to the touch or at least the air coming out will be hot or not moving at all. Heat is caused by a bad fan or fans including a bad cpu fan. Of course heat is a big problem.
Though you can adjust when the machine shuts down as a saftey precaution that you still need to address the overheating problem itself. A fan may need to be replaced or you may need additional air flow ie additional fans.
A major cause of heat is a dirty fan due to dust, pet hair etc. Computers, including laptops, need to be cleaned out periodically.
I would look into these issues before worrying about cmos adjustments unless you have changed the settings and this was the result.
