Unexpected shut down of my HP563w

\015 After stand by for more than 5 minutes the computer shut down as if the power fail.\015

Answers :

It might be a thermal shutdown. If the computer is more than 6 months old, this is what I expect it to be. Try leaving your case's side panel open after checking for dust buildup.

Alternatively, it might be simply unstable. This usually doesn't happen for prebuilt machines, but it can happen. While the computer is booting, enter the BIOS (Basic Input Output System) by pressing the button at the first screen you see. It should say ''Press X button to enter BIOS''. The button is usually Delete, but can be something else like F12. Once you are in the BIOS, choose the option that suggests a return to default settings. This will let the PC automatically bring back all settings to what they should be and usually makes sure it's not unstable.

Lastly, it can be a software problem. Try booting into Safe Mode instead and see how long the PC stays on. If it stays on indefinitely then it is a virus or software problem. Either put an anti-virus program on a USB key and quickly have it scan for problems, or reinstall the operating system to fix a possible bug.
