    Hello everyone,

    Longtime reader, first time poster!

    I've had my MacBook for a year and a half. Best investment I've ever made.

    I have a problem though. My Macbook is randomly shutting off. I had SLIGHT water damage... and when I mean slight, I mean like a couple ML seeped into the CD ROM drive. There were no problems, so this may not be the cause.

    That was two weeks ago. Now, the computer is shutting off randomly... Any tips on the fix? My warranty is obviously out the window. There are no warnings. The computer just shuts off.

    Any ideas?

    Reset SMC and PRAM/NVRAM?
    Run Hardware Test (on one of the install DVDs)?
    Unplug RAM and re-seat it?
    It might be a software problem (unlikely though).... try booting off DVD or in safe mode (Google) and see if it fixes it?
