Could be a river Problem, or anything. What are you doing when it cuts out?

Is the pc running for a while and then shuts down ?

More info is needed really Trev.

Possible overheating !
Check all fans are clear of dust and foreign bodies etc.

Check device manager:

Windows key + Pausebreak / hardware / Device Manager now look for any yellow exclaimation marks.
