    haha! well the computer is electrical! so yes you have an electrical problem, i wouldn't say it is the computer just yet you really want to test everything pefore jumping to that conclusion. Start with the simplest of possibilities maybe a fuse is burnt check the fuse panel for the instrument cluster fuse. when you say they shut off sometimes, which ones exactly? and how do they shut off they stop working so you don't see mph, or rpm, or engine temperature they just all go down to zero? or do the lights for them just go out?
