Recently purchased a refurbished HP Pavillion p6-2427c with AMD Quad Core A8 5500, 3.20 GHZ, 8GB DDR3, 1 TB HDD, DVDRW, Windows 8 64bit.
I use it to play mainly online games like MineCraft, Portal 2, and recently Cubeworld. The issue is that it is constantly shutting down. Sometimes I can play for only a few minutes and then the computer shuts off. Other times I can play a whole day before it does this. I have only had it since July and this is really frustration. It happens most when I play Cubeworld. I have tried cleaning the fans and making sure it has plenty of air flow around it. It is frustrating since I really want to play Cubeworld. It also has happened when playing other games or watching youtube. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
