My Pc Randomly Shuts Down By Itself

Case Fans: have to be paid for indivitually (approx. $2.00), so most computer buyers don't with them.
Not only that, but you'll have to pay extra to get the motherboard driver disk, That you also paid for, when you bought the motherboard!!! Same goes for the mobo's Operators Manual!!!

40c and 55c ~ for desktops
max is usually 70c~ My overclocked phenom II runs 58c when running prime 95.lower when not.
between 65-70~ 70c or above might be a concern on a desktop
laptops usually run a little hotter
download core temp it is free.
auto shutdown should occour at about90c
Centrino family are Intel Pentium M or Celeron M processor, w/Intel 855 or 915M chipset operating range 0 to 100C usually want to stay at least 20 ~ deg below max so I`m thinking 75-80 c max

That's odd, I live in the same country and never have been charged extra for the mobo driver CD or the fan (which usually comes with the tower case).
Maybe you should look for a more reliable supplier

When cold it takes 6-10 operations of the start button to achieve the 'POST'
'beep'. Then another 4-8 operations to achieve Windows log-inb page. Finially 2-4 more putton pushes to get to my ID window. Then it may run 10 minutes or 12 hours before shuting down. It completed a very long (500GB)
Windows 'check disk', then shutdown while trying to restsrt Windows.
So far, I've replaced the power supply and the system fan.
What should I try next?

My pc also shuts itslef down. Sometimes after 2 hours, sometimes within 5 minutes. Sometimes while i'm playing a game (intensive use of the videocard) but sometimes when i'm typing in microsoft word.
when the pc shuts itself down it trys to reboot itself, but imediatly shuts down again. I asuming it's not a heat problem since pcwizard shows my cpu is under 55 degrees celcius.
I checked inside the computer. all my vans are working and spinning like crazy. the videocard does feel warm, but not alarmingly hot.

My pc also shuts itself down. Sometimes after hours of gameplay, sometime within 5 minutes of surfing the internet.
I can imagine that when it shuts down in the middle of a game it has something to do with intensive use of my video card. but when i check pcwizzard it shows me that none of my components are over 55 degrees celcius.
also when i open my pc all the vans are spinning and nothing feels overheated. my videocard feels warm though.
when my pc shuts down it tries to reboot but imediatly shut down again.
I cleaned my pc with an airduster ceveral times so i don't thing dust is a issue.
this problem is driving me crazy! please help me out

At first it seemed to be an overheating issue. One client's mobo, an MSI879A-G54, was shutting down with that overclock dial lighting up.
Turned out it was a virus of some sort. After replacing & RMI-ing the mobo, the new one started doing the same thing: it would randomly shut down, but still had lights on. It was completely unresponsive and had to be unplugged for about twenty minutes.
The obvious cause seemed to be overheating, but none of my temperature displays ever seemed to catch anything. I looked for over taxed resources (the closest I could get was opening browsers; they'd lag and it seemed to accelerate the cause).
I'd plug them back in and they ran fine for a few minutes, then the same thing--blinking off and dead.
After about five separate occurrences I tried something new: to restore from an old checkpoint some time before this started happening.
EACH AND EVERY TIME I RESTORED IT WORKED. None of the virus scanners were able to detect anything, but that's not surprising either since a very small percent of viruses are actually cataloged.
So, before you go pulling your hair out and buying new PS, MOBO, RAM, etc., try a restore.
