Hi matley,

Some more information might be helpfull.
What kind of computer are you using?
When does your computer shutdown? (After gaming?)

Also, try rightclick "My computer" => "Properties" => "Advanced" => "Startup and recovery" => uncheck "automatically reboot"

Greetings,

LucF

Like qfren asked, I'd be curious to know if you've added new hardware recently-- in particular memory. I've seen random shutdowns after people added non-matching memory modules [somethig as simply overlooked as ECC vs non-ECC]. Does it automatically shutdown and reboot or do you get the BSOD [blue screen of death] first?

i would also think this could be hardware related.  check your video card drivers and see if they are upto date!

more info required also!

we didnt add any new hardware. the shutdown occurs anytime, with any programs running. anyway, i tried LucF suggestion. we'll see if the problem will go away.

matley,

The problem won't go away with just disabling automatically reboot, but it should give you a blue screen, post the error code wich you get there, or look it up yourself at http://www.auhma.org/win5/kbestop.htm for possible resolutions.

Try installing all the microsoft patches from windowsupdate.microsoft.com. This sounds like the rdc bug in windows which causes a lot of problems.
