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 ?

Does it Blue Screen First? Show us what is in your event viewer.

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"
