Your computer may at times shut down without warning. When this happens, there is a risk of losing valuable data from your system. There are multiple reasons for your computer to turn off without warning. It could be due to hardware or software issues, power issues or malware attacks. In order to manually troubleshoot for random shutting down of the system, please follow the steps below.
- Update driver software
- Right click on My Computer and select Properties
- Then select Device Manager
- Select the device/s with a yellow mark and right click on it
- Then choose Update driver software and in the next window that appears, click on ‘Search automatically for driver software’.
- Heat-related issue
Check if the fan on the power supply is working by checking the back of the system. The fan should be moving smooth and quick. If the fan is not working properly or if the power supply is too hot to touch, you should consider replacing the power supply. If you have access to the inside of your system, check if the fan to the processor is working fine. If you hear any abnormal noise from your system, it could be an indication of your fan not functioning properly.
- System file related issues
- Log in to your system as an administrator and go to Command prompt
- Type in SFC\SCANNOW at the command prompt.
- This command will identify any issues with system files and resolve them.
