Windows often undergoes unexpected shutdown during work!! RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was using windows xp for 2 years with just 1GB RAM and i upgraded it to  windows 7. Since then i am not able to work consistently since my windows is shutting down half way at random. Then i upgraded my RAM to one more GigaBytes. Still my problem exist. ALso i am not sure whether it is because of absence of ups since the time i upgraded. I also tried for so many solutions yet nothing worked with my pc..

  • Hi!

    Unexpected shutdowns can be linked many different things, are you doing something specific at the time, for example using applications that require a lot of CPU or RAM?
    In most cases it's linked to the CPU becoming to hot or a faulty RAM module.

    Open up the event viewer and browse to "System"

    Are there any errors at the time of the computer rebooting?

  • if shutting down issue happened before windows logo, this is HW issue

    try to monitor in safe mode or BIOS, if this PC shutdown, is something to do with HW
