Having problems with your HP Pavilion Slimline S3123W Desktop PC - REFURBISHED ?

HP Slimline desktop shuts down on it own without warning

\015 I bought this a year ago and about 6 months after. I started noticing that when i was doing something it would turn off without notice, no sound or anything. I thought it was maybe a one time thing then it started happening more regularly I bought a fan and took the cover off the tower because i thought it might be overheating but it still turns off every once in a while. The computer runs great but the shut downs are annoying.If you know of what may be the problem or what i can do to fix it please help, I don't have a lot of money to spend but if i have to take it to a PC repair place it would be better if i had an idea of what the problem was.\015

Answers :

You need to take off the fan to the cpu and blow out all the dust and dirt. removing the cover for better cooling is actually a bad thing to do.... with the cover on the fans will move air thru the computer to cool it... with no cover the air does not circulate for best cooling.
