Why does my computer turn off?

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hello, I will be working on my computer and it will suddenly shut down with no notice. It doesn't happen very frequently, but when it does, what an annoyance. Can anyone give me advice about what to do? Any tips or suggestions, or am I stuck? My computer is just about 3 years old. Thank you.

Why does my computer turn off?


You can try these few steps yourself, before seeking for technical assistance.

  1. First verify the proper connection of the power cable & ROM.
  2. Scan the system for virus and other malware attacks.
  3. Also try resetting BIOS settings to default.
  4. Try connecting another monitor if available. If the issue persists, there can be a problem in power, system board or display.
  5. If the other monitor did not have the issue, there may be a problem with the capacitors. So, try adjusting the brightness to the minimum level possible. If this also brings no result, check if the capacitors are having bulging tops instead of being flat where you would have to go for a replacement.
  6. Further you can try replacing the inverter of the monitor.

Best Regards!
