What caused my computer to go off just as I got on? This happened today and a day or two ago?

Hello there :)

 

Do you mean that the computer powered down suddenly, on it's own, soon after you turned it on?  If so, it could be a few different things, all of which probably will need you to take it to a qualified computer repair tech.

 

It could be a problem with the mainboard, the CPU, the power supply, etc.  

 

One thing you can check on your own is to make sure that the power cord is firmly plugged in, both into the computer and the power outlet.

Just to add, that if you mean that the Operating System is shutting down (crashing), then that also could be due to a number of factors.

A first step might be to run a System File Check (assuming it's Windows), to try and identify any corrupt or missing files.
