  1. I would love to help, but you really are not giving us any information to work with here.
  2. sounds like a power issue.
    What is your computer build?
    How long are you usually on before it dies?
    What sort of tasks are you doing when it dies?
    Are there any unusual noises on boot up, while using or the weeks before this happened?
  3. Is yours a recurring problem or did it happened just once? Also it would be a great help if you listed your system specs.

    hello feeddagoat and thanks.
    Actually its dies any time either my pc is idle or i m working on it.
    There is no unusual noise on boot up.
    IT happens just like that a person is using a computer without uPs and its shut down on power failure. I asked my engineer he said that it can be virus problem but i have reinstalled my OS twice but still the same.
    i m using INTEL CORE2DUO 2.66ghz with intel motherboard 945.
    1Gb ram.

  6. Could be a temperature problem, the processor is over heating and shutting off. If you can try running real Temp.

    If it blue screened or performed a memory dump I would say its a mobo, ram or HDD failure.

    It could very well be a virus thats in the bios of the mobo. The only solution is to flash the bios. This can be risky since if something goes wrong it wrecks the mobo so you may need to take it to someone else but we can cross that bridge if we come to it.

    For now check your temps and report back. If it isn't temperatures then we can look into other causes.

    What about on load? Try running prime95 and looking at the temperatures?
  9. If thats degrees C then it sounds too high especially at stock. I would make sure your cooler is making proper contact with the CPU and reapply the TIM.
