My computor shuts down after 30 minutes or more


Answers :

I would start with a heat event problem. Check the easy stuff first, are the fans running, is there a lot of dust inside the computer. And that failing, get some artic 5 pop off the heat sync and apply a skinny little coat.
Should that not do it, next look to the video card, that can give you hangs and shut downs. Make sure it is seated properly. There are more things to check but that just might get you started for now. If this doesn't help please let us know.
