I don't know if I'm posting this in the right spot.

I am getting a blue screen and my computer randomly shuts down. I thought it might be hardware-related and when I went to device manager, I found this:




I tried to update the drivers and it says the best software is already installed.

System info:
Tech Support Guy System Info Utility version 1.0.0.2
OS Version: Microsoft® Windows Vista™ Home Premium, Service Pack 1, 64 bit
Processor: AMD Phenom(tm) 9550 Quad-Core Processor, AMD64 Family 16 Model 2 Stepping 3
Processor Count: 4
RAM: 5886 Mb
Graphics Card: ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics, 256 Mb
Hard Drives: C: Total - 610477 MB, Free - 590522 MB; I: Total - 476929 MB, Free - 44821 MB;
Motherboard: Gateway, RS780
Antivirus: None


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I doubt whether no driver installed will cause random shutdown.

The PC seems quite old. Power supply could be starting to fail... Or if you have not cleaned the processor cooler & it has become clogged up, then your processor might be over heating & shutting down as self protection.
