Then you should get someone that is competent that lives near that can be entrusted to sort this out going on the thread you posted as I think this is more than you are capable of. "No disrespect intended". I don't think this can be put right with someone who cannot follow directions and not know enough about a computer innards

"sorry i live in the midlands"

No need to apologise. Someone's got to live in the Midlands, I suppose.

If this switching off by itself has started happening during the recent hot weather then it may simply be a case of overheating. You would need to open the case and clean out the fluff and make sure all the fans were spinning.

If it isn't an overheating issue and you have a Windows Home CD then you could try a repair. Here is a step-by-step guide click here
