    Hello, Ive been having this problem for awhile now. My computer has been randomly freezing up or shutting down on its own after minutes of logging in.
    Ive monitored my computers temperatures and they are all at a safe temp. I don't understand why this is happening. Every time my computer freezes Ive noticed the HDD light stops flashing and stops making its usual clicking sound signifying that its thinking.
    I believe that the PSU is failing me as it is cooler master and offers a very low wattage of 270 watts but I can't be for sure.

    So my symptoms are happening after I log in. I have hardly anything 'bogging' down the system in startup and Ive scanned numerous times to see if this could be a virus and nothing shows up. Most of the time its just my computer freezing up but some rare occasions it might just up and shutdown then restart itself.

    Please could somebody help me figure out what could be the problem and offer a solution. (I would like to not pay for my solutions to be solved)

    I am using Windows Vista x32 Home Premium.
