System Crashes after being on for 5-6 minutes

Unread postby Becca » December 17th, 2009, 2:51 pm

When I turn the system on first thing in the morning, it runs fine for about 5-6 minutes. Then it just shuts down. Sometimes it re-boots, and sometimes it just stays blank.


I am trying to do what the forum asks, by attaching the "hijack this" report from Trend Micro, and it will not allow me to.

Hi Becca,
Your symptoms are not likely to be caused by malware.
They are however, likely to be caused by some defective piece of hardware, like a fan that has stopped.
In such a case, the extra heat may cause the motherboard to shut down to save itself. The 5-6 minute delay suggests it.
The forums listed below specialize in system problems like that, and will be able to help.
Local PC shops should be able to identify the problem as well.

As this issue does not involve malware and therefore falls outside the scope of this forum, this topic is now closed.
