Answers :

Random shutdowns are normally caused by your computer overheating. The CPU has a protect mechanism that automatically shuts down when it reaches a certain temp so it does not damage the CPU. If you are computer savvy you can download a program called HWinfo or check your BIOS for CPU temperature readings as it runs..otherwise take it to a technician, however, as I always recommend have the technician show you the increased tempature before agreeing to any hardware fixes..if you have any questions let me know. Pls rate this solution.
