Random shutdowns

My computer has been shutting down randomly. Does anyone know a way to stop this?

Might be many different causes.
Have you installed a software or hardware recently before you experienced the random shutdowns ?

Proper shutdown or hard shutdown (crash)? You need to be more specific.

If your computer stays on for a few minutes then shuts down it may be a heat issue, can't hurt to check for a clogged heat sink or fan.

A blue screen comes on first, then it shuts down.

Hi,

First disable automatic restarts if applicable:

Please reconfigure windows to collect the correct info so we can analyse your BSOD.
You want small memory dumps - "MiniDumps"
