what are the computers specs?

my guess is overheating. that would explain the shutdown and monitor symptoms.

Have you checked your video drivers,tested your Ram, If all else fails try a reinstall. Try to go into control panel adminstrative tools event viewer and check your applactions system and security it can give you some clues.

Hey, thanks for sharing your opinions but i dont even have time to check those things because it will auto turn off after 10 mins. i gonna format my computer.. and i have a question. will the problem come out from the HDD? because i will move all of my files into an external and format it... if my HDD is damaged, then it is too bad... is it possible ?

The hard drive wouldn't cause it to shut down after ten minutes... it just wouldn't be able to boot into Windows.

It sounds like some sort of either Windows error (have you got a blue screen?) or a thermal event (not maybe not overheating of the CPU).

It could be a lot of things... we're going in blind, as we don't have a lot of details. Bad circuit on the motherboard that loses connection after it gets hot, loose power connector doing the same thing, sensor going bad, power switch shorting, screw behind the mobo shorting once it gets hot enough to expand the components... but we can't tell without some specifics.

Tell us everything that is going on. What programs do yo have open? What are you doing when it dies? Does the desktop change any? Do any warnings pop up? Have you made any/many changes with PowerToys? Have you messed with the registry?
