My compaq presario keeps going dead on me

\015 It started about 5 or 6 months ago, and the problem is getting worse and worse...ill be on the computer and the computer will just completely shut off. when this problem first started, it would happen once every couple weeks, now, it happens every 10 or 15 minutes.\015

Answers :

You could have an overheating problem, especially when you try to start the computer up again straight after a shutdown and it won't start, and starts only after it cools down.
\015\012This could be caused by a faulty fan (ie has stopped spinning or spins slowly) and or dust clogging the heatsink and or fan.
\015\012Clean/remove the dust and if the fan is faulty, replace it.
