    My Macbook Pro 2.2 GHz is randomly shutting off and rebooting itself...

    I'll be surfing the internet or maybe watching a youtube video or something, and it will just randomly reboot... It has never done this before, but it's becoming a more and more common thing lately. I dunno what it is (My extended warranty is now up, so I have no idea what it could be and I just don't want it to cost me an arm and a leg)... I've been in love with this computer since I got it years ago, but other than the random rebootings, it's still a great great great young computer that has a lot of life left!

    any ideas?

    Does it just switch off or are any error messages displayed?

    no error messages... it freezes for a couple of seconds, and then goes to a blue screen and starts to reboot... I hate it... driving me crazy... :-(...

    anyone else experiencing this?

    could it be the logic board?

    Could be.

    Try reinstalling your OS and see if that solves your issue.

    I actually found a fix for this... it sucks, but take your battery out, then it will stop restarting. At least that worked for me. :rolleyes:

    Try reinstalling OS first, Then go to apple store and mayby ask them to give you a new battery if that solves it. GL and post when it's over. A lot of guys like to know how you solved it :):apple:

    Check in the console if there are any crash logs or anything indicating what the root problem cause may be.

    Run Apples Diagnostic test over night if you can keep it from freezing.
