I have a thread in Hijack section and I have pretty well cleaned everything up
and they think it may be a hardware issue or something else.
What should I try?

Thanks

it would really help if you provide your computer hardware specs. what motherboard, power supply, cpu, ram, do you have? etc.etc.etc.

since the computer is shutting down by itself, it could be a power issue. try a spare power supply if you got one. if you dont then i recommend purchasing a good quality power supply such as antec or enermax. you can get these brands from your local computer store.

do you have a dell computer?

Please describe how it shuts down. Is there a pattern to the event? (ie: particular program running, time intervals, freezes or completely shuts down, works okay in safe mode)

Download and install Intel® Active Monitor and report the system temperatures and voltages.
Where would I find out about power supply?
Power off, unplug AC cord, remove cover to open the pc case. The power supply will have a label on side, copy make and model ID and any other data on label.

While inside, keep one hand on metal chasis and use other to make sure all connectors, cards, and ram are properly seated. Clean any dust. Power on and verify fans are working. Power off, unplug AC and replace cover.
