HP Recommended
Example: Pavilion p6-2376
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

While playing on the computer yesterday it shutdown without warning. This happened 4 times. All I was doing was listerning to a podcast. What might be causing this"? power supply issue perhaps?

Thanks for any help

You said you were "listening" to a podcast.  So was it just audio, or did it include video, as well?  If the latter, then basically you were streaming and that can put a lot of demand on the PC -- as it drives all the cores on my laptop to nearly 100% every time I do it.
