Default Help!!!! IT help required!!

Can someone help me, please? I have a recurring problem with my computer.

The screen blanks out a few times, to return back to normal, and then, with a sound of a click, shuts down, like as if I had turn off my computer but didn't turn off my screen.

I had to reboot my computer by turning off & on the power. The on/off button on the CPU doesn't work, so I think it froze up.

I noticed that this happens whenever I try to upload my photos onto picasaweb using the picasa software, version 3. This happened only lately.

I've checked for virus, malware, etc, on picasaweb, but the results are negative.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Hmm.. sounds like a hardware problem to me if you can't even turn the power on/off... are you sure it only happens when you run the picasa software? What about during other times?

Since you mentioned that the screen blanks off, it could be related to your graphics card.. do you have any games installed in your computer, like The Sims? Try playing that and see if it kaputs your computer as well

To check the amount of RAM you have on your pc.. you can go to Start -> Run and type dxdiag

See how much RAM you have.

Does only the monitor black out..or the pc turned off too? (if the monitor is blacked out.. but you can see the CPU light working fine, it could be.. the monitor cable, the Graphic card or the monitor itself. Also check if the CPU is overheating.. (just try to put ur hand on the casing and feel how hot it is).

If the black out happened only when u're dealing with pictures / photo editing.. it could probably due to RAM / Virtual memory. Photo editing softwares usually are quite heavy and the computer will auto-reboot if the system cannot handle it. *scratch head*

If your talking about a laptop.. I rest my case.. I don't know zip about lappy.

P/S: Becareful when monitor blacks out but CPU runs like nothing happened (you can hear the CPU fans sound..).. I've had situation like this where... poof! the graphic card melted .. the cooling fan on the graphic card literally melted off

P/S #2: If you're not sure.. you can always get the pc for a simple check up..some computer shops does it..I think .. better be safe than melting
