Is the PC NEW or new to you? PCs will shut down if they are dirty inside and are overheating. If the machine is not NEW-NEW, then try blowing it out with canned air and get all the dirt/dust out. It will then work fine.

My Gateway model w350a T-series laptop overheats whenever I use it too long. I can tell it is overheating because when i feel underneath of the left side it is extremely warm. I recently got a new hard drive after the fan in the old one failed, and I never had the overheat problem before then. Could there be a quick fix for this problem?

I took my gateway gt5620 in because it would shut down by itself. It would restart. They took the graphics card out and it worked for a while. Now it is doing the shut down again. I took the side panel off and all of the fans are running. But with the side open it didn't shut down. I put the side back on and it shut down in a few minutes. I think the power supply is weak and by taking the graphics card out they took a load off of the power supply which helped for a little while. Should I replace
