Re: Computer turns off on its own after little time of being turned on

Please do not Hijack someone else's thread. I have moved you to your own thread. The OP in the original thread had a laptop and not a build, so what works for them will not work for you.
As for your problem, Shutting down is usually caused by Power Supply Unit failing or overheating. Open the case and blow out all fans with a can of compressed air. Take a look at the PSU label (Desktop not Laptop) and report the make, model and Wattage. If it continues to shut down, then replace the PSU

Those instructions were for a Desktop computer, never mind if you have a laptop. Have you taken the battery out, and just used the Power adapter?

I get to the Memory Test Activity page it runs for about a minute and then the computer shuts down.
