  1. I just built a new PC. Its turning off randomly It has never done this until recently. Its a fairly new computer. I put it together about a week ago. Everything on it is brand new. I have a video of it crashing so that it can explain itself better. Any help would appreciated.

    hmmm, does this problem happen when you've been using the computer for a long time? if so, it may be the proc overheating and shutting itself down. Try reseating the heatsink / reapplying thermal paste on the processor, hopefully that will help.

    I would add that when you re-apply the paste, apply a thin layer. A paper thin application is recommended, but I don't know how anyone does that. I just apply what I consider thin and it works. Too much paste causes problems, too.
