Why is my computer turning off?

Hello,

So when I push the power button located on the top right, the light goes on (button), all the indicators lights below the trackpad are turning on however after 1 second, the whole computer shuts down. During those one second, my hard drive is making one very light click sound, only one. I tried to open it and blow air to clean up the computer of all the dust. It did work for about a week but then the same situation came up again. Now even if I clean up the inside, it is the same.

Thank you in advance.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hi,

Does it do this with the charger connected and switched on?

Hey, it looks like it might be your motherboard or hard disk issue, if it doesnt boot into ur hard disk then ur hard disk is gone, bt u say it does boot at times then my guess would be to get your motherboard checked as it might be an issue with your motherboard (could be your motherboard IC).

Heat related, probably.

Is the fan blowing air out the side vent?

If not open case and see if fan is spinning. Clean out dust

They can, sometimes, work intermittently.

Let me know how it goes.
