  1. hello,
    just like the title says, comp keeps shutting down.
    i bumped it with my knee and about 5 mins later it shut down. when i turn it on it will sometimes start fine but will shut off after about 5 mins but most of the time now it wont get past start screen. i was able to get on the internet a few minutes ago but it shut off after about 2 minutes. what the hell??
    i checked all wires and connections, re-installed gpu, soundcard, ram, and cpu. all connections seem to be correct. i just dont know why its doing what its doing.
    any help is greatly appreciated.

    Your bump has probably knocked something loose, I'd suspect the processor heatsink. You'll probably find that it's loose and needs to be clipped back on.
