Why?

Virus probably. Make sure your power chord is plugged in properly though, you might just kick it out or something.

Do any error screens pop up whilst the computer is functional?

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

I had this problem and for the life of me I couldn't figure it out for ages, and it kept getting worse as time went on until eventually I couldn't load up my desktop. The problem was my computer was so loaded with dust the fan couldn't move.

I had this problem a while ago. It started by just restarting once a day, but after a couple weeks, I couldn't use if for 10 minutes without it happening.

Sometimes overheating is the cause, but a lot of the time it's a virus. DON'T HIRE A COMPUTER GUY! They just delete everything! :O

Open the side of your computer, clean it up completely, especially the fan. Computers are programmed to automatically turn off if they cant cope if the heat produced.

Its more than likely overheating especially if its a laptop.

Clean the fan out. This will be much harder if it is a laptop (if it is, make sure your not blocking the vents with cloth or something).

Exactly this was the problem. 1 sec after I made the thread, it turned off... a few days later the desktop wouldn't load. So I opened the computer and checked the fan - loaded with dust.

well i think it's a virus, obiously...

It could be a virus.

Would be a pretty lame virus though. Would just have to run a batch file that shuts down the computer.
#22
My first computer did this. It was the motherboard f*cking up so we had to get a new one and a guy came and replaced it.
