Hello,

My PC often shutdown automatically recently after i open up my CPU to clean out the dust in it last week. I've been playing the same game all the while but it never behave like this before the cleaning up but now it just shut off awhile after the game loads. Any ideas what is causing it?

appreciate the any pointers given.

Oh boy!

A computer must never, but never be vacuumed and never brushed. You have no doubt touched and damaged some circuits which are very fragile.

A computer must always be cleaned using a can of compressed air.

Sorry but you must now consult a technician, probably your power supply.

Didn't find the answer you are looking for?

answer from tom's hardware, your computer probably overheated, try applying thermal paste after cleaning cpu fans
