My computer shuts down whilst playing Minecraft. Can be after 15 minutes, an hour, whatever, the time interval is random. Happens on both servers and single player. When I try to restart my computer, it will fail a few times but then work. If I leave it a few minutes and restart it will turn on first time. The fan is working and if I put my hand next to the fan it seems quite cool and not hot so overheating seems unlikely. I dusted the inside of the computer a month ago so there shouldn't be too much dust build up. I din't used to have this problem until I uninstalled Norton antivirus. I have tried 2 different antivirus software products since then. Please note this only happens when I play Minecraft.

I updated java. Still got a problem :sad.gif:
When you say I need more RAM, would virtual RAM suffice or does it have to be physical?I updated java. Still got a problem :sad.gif:
