Computer shutdowns often

Hi!
i have been facing this problem from the past 6 months, actually i am a student and i use to play lots of games and i use to do freelancing in engineering software like autocad, nx nastran and Catia. When i bought it for the first the processor, it was good and i use to run the system 24*7.. it worked great and later that started showing mi some problems like, its use to shutdown often whenever i wanna post process of analysis result which will take 1 day fully, and later even if play any movie also it use to shutdown, the main problem is, if its shutdown once and i cant switch it on, i should have to wait until the processor cools and lower the temp. And later even if the cpu temp is lower the computer will start and shutdown immediately with 5min.
So i have made a call to motherboard customer care they told mi give the board for service, i gave it thrice the time but still they told mi to check whether the processor is fault, and i also have claimed the warranty and got new processor But its happening again and again. At last, i have changed ma motherboard, but still it happens..

ASUS M5A97 r2 Motherboard
Cpu amd phenom ii x6 1090t
2*4 gb transcend ram

It will very helpful if one knows whats the problem is.. i cant figure it out..
thank you

  1. check your cpu fan that its working properly, if its working then try not keeping your laptop on pillow or bed or any other soft surfaces. Put your lappy on hard surfaces so that vents and fan can do it work to cool your processor. You can even try purchasing laptop cooler from market.
  2. What Atulmaniya said - the laptop is probably overheating. That or your battery is really old and can't hold a charge anymore (if you don't plug it in that is).
  3. how have you guys assumed its a laptop? that board is a desktop one and so is the cpu.
    maze can you tell us your full system specs. psu, gpu and the case cooling installed.
  4. this is very likely a psu issue
  5. ok ...sorry everyone..... Thanks satyamdube. I was.... sorry once again
  6. ^ hey chill man...honest mistake I assume :)...lets concentrate on OP :)
  7. ok...so as satyamdube suggested try changing your PSU man.
  8. yeah, i am using desktop pc,

  11. I doubt your psu has the capability of supplying peak current on your 12V rail. that is the reason in my opinion. you'd do better with a quality psu with the same power.

    try corsair VS450 or CX 430 for instance.
  12. Thanks Guy i have ordered cosair PSU vs550, Im sorry for the late reply, i dont have pc so have to use ma friends system for a while
  13. thanks for your suggestions friends, will try that and let you all know..

    Hi! i have one more doubt, before changing ma PSU i can able to overclock upto 3.9 ghz but now i cant go more than 3.4ghz, what are all the steps should be followed ?
  15. ^ hi. I am sorry but i could not understand your question. Are you asking for steps on Overclocking? I do not have good knowledge about OC and you will be better advised on it in the Oveclocking section.

    Let me know if there is some other way I can help.
