Windows 7: Computer Shutting Off by itself

Computer Shutting Off by itself

Solved: I am using a computer I built myself and I have overclocked the processor to 2.60GHz when it supports 2.00GHz and I got 4270 3DMarks and when I undone the changes, it kept shutting itself off. I cleared the BIOS and I still keep getting problems.
Startup Repair can't even fix it and I sometimes got the BSOD. It also shuts down by itself as if I was in a power cut and I keep losing unsaved data I spent several minutes or even hours on.

I even keep getting unexpected shutdowns even when I am using the BIOS.

I guess the problem is with yuor Memory. Also i would recommend to remove your AVG go for MSE which also free and more effective.

Run the Memory Diagnostic & HD Diagnostic
Also i would recommend to run System Integrity Checker

Start > Run > CMD > Right Click and Run as administrator > SFC/ SCANNOW

Drivers to be Updated

Code:
SiteKey.SYS  Mon May 05 21:58:35 2003 (3EB69133)
jswpslwf.sys Thu May 15 15:58:43 2008 (482C105B)

Quote:
IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (a)
An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an
interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high. This is usually
caused by drivers using improper addresses.
If a kernel debugger is available get the stack backtrace.
Arguments:
Arg1: 85009730, memory referenced
Arg2: 00000000, IRQL
Arg3: 00000000, bitfield :
bit 0 : value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation
bit 3 : value 0 = not an execute operation, 1 = execute operation (only on chips which support this level of status)
Arg4: 8306f4b2, address which referenced memory
Hope this helps,
Captain

When I have taken my graphics card out it worked perfectly and it keeps shutting off by itself with it in and I can't access the BIOS. I am getting a new graphics card.
