    unusal behaviour - windows or PC?


    Anyone come across this unusal behaviour of my PC? It seems to at random turn off at the base unit; I have to unplug it at the back and then plug it

    Could this be Windows 10 problem or the PC?

    It is an Intel i5
    1tb hard drive
    6GB Ram
    Windows 10 Pro
    make is a Fujitsu Q9000

    No viruses or malware have been found. Use Avast - also ran Malwarebytes said Linked In App for Chrome virus but removed that and Chrome, problem still persists.

    Windows 10 clock also goes out of sync 5 minutes or so.

    If I go away for hour or so watch TV on big TV it does not go off.

    Thanks

    Those are most certainly PC (machine/HW) problems. Could be overheating so you should check for that. Comments about clock problem make me thing that CMOS battery may gone flat so it may have to be replaced.

    I used to be a hardware tech and saw low CMOS batteries cause all sorts of weird issues. Won't do any harm to replace it.

    Thanks. CMOS battery has been ordered - will advise if problem still persists after install. However the base unit still turned off by itself even doing the scannow in safe mode

    the engineer fixed it

    a) no thermal paste was found on heat sink
    b) one of the RAM sticks was having the problem as well

    Thanks to all who suggested

    Don't have full details yet as need to pick machine up but engineer has taken out the 2GB RAM that came with it as it originally came with 4GB Ram when machine was from seller, think seller put 2GB RAM in - he said machine is working fine with 4GB RAM but my father may have a spare DDR3 2GB RAM - quick turn around for fix. Soon as I find out will let you know.
