For awhile now, my computer has been suddenly turning off whenever I watch movies. I am getting a brand new comp in a couple of months or so, therefore I decided that I'd just avoid watching movies on here until then. However, now it's shutting down even when I'm just browsing the internet and not doing anything specific.
When I say it shuts down, the screen will go to standby, and you can still hear the fan but nothing's on. Also, a couple of weeks ago I put on my computer, and the fan was making a loud droning noise. I had to switch it off/on a couple of times before the noise stopped.
I'm afraid hardware is a weak point of mine, but I'm convinced this must be a hardware problem though. I don't really want to splash out money for new parts (because I'm saving up for a new comp), so I hope I'll be able to at least keep it going until then.
