    I am using a windows 7 and got a problem while using the pc.
    After some time of using it, unexpected shutdown is experienced.
    can somebody explain why is this happening?

    It could be malware ...
    Have you tried running a scan with a good antivirus?

    Or it could be a driver problem.
    Plugged in any new device lately?

    After eliminating malware, try installing the free version of WhoCrashed (by Resplendence, google for it) and run it after the next spontaneous reboot to check the crash dumps.

    I had that issue and it turned out to be a bad RAM stick - WhoCrashed told me something different every time in that case, so it was then a process of hardware swapping until I found the culprit.

    The computer simply "normally shutdown"?

    No bluescreen or crash?
