One possible reason your computer keeps turning off is because it is over heating Most computers today turn off automatically if the processor gets too hot You can check if the fan on the power supply is working by looking on the back of the computer and if fan is moving smoothly Also you can check all other fans inside the computer including the one on your processor.
