    For some reason, my computer shuts down by itself before I even boot into windows. It was fine yesterday, but it was like this today. Anyone know why and how to fix it?

    sounds like your PSU is getting really to call it quits.

    Ok! Problem fixed! The cause of the problem was the heatsink from the CPU actually fell off!!! The clip thing had broken causing the CPU to overheat and shutdown. O man...I bought that darn fan just a month
