Q: When I’m watching a video or playing a game my computer gets a blue screen or shuts down. What’s wrong with it?

A: Sometimes this is an indication of overheating or a faulty hardware component, such as a power supply, memory module motherboard or video card. If the system feels hot you can try to clean out the fans.
