My Gateway 4542GP just shuts down and restarts while I'm using it. but everything works well it just all of a sudden just shuts down and restarts..HELP ME PLEASE

Answers :

Sounds like it might be overheating
best thing i can suggest is, get a few small blocks, about 4,
put 2 on the left and 2 on the right under the laptop so that laptop is off the surface and the bottom of it has space to air out, keeping it cool
should look something like this under the laptop

another problem is that you may have Trojans or viruses lurking around, i suggest using AVG and Spybot Search and Destroy, run scans with both of these

also make sure that your power supply isnt getting too hot as well, it may not be providing your laptop with best power, causing it to crash

tell us how you go, post your scan results if all else hasnt worked
