Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

My pc is shutting down what should i do to prevent it?

Answers :

Check the settings in the control panel. These are the energy saving settings. You may have them set to shut the computer down to save energy, power, etc. Set them to reflect just what you need now.
You haven't mentioned if it turns off abruptly or shuts down telling you that the PC is shutting down.
\015\012- When your PC turns off abruptly, its mostly the CPU which heats up. The reason may vary from the CPU fan stopped working to CPU gone bad.
\015\012- If its a proper shutdown, most probably there is a virus on the PC.
