David and WTC,

I am having the same problem and came to the same conclusion about my power
supply. However, after putting in a new power supply, I am having the same
problem. All temps are good, fans are operating normally, I've run
anti-virus checks, mailicious logic checks, PC diagnotics, etc. No luck.
David's comment about being very random is on the money for my computer. I
tried to narrow it down to a program but cannot.

David - how is your computer running?

WTC - any other recommendations?

Could really use an answer on how to solve this dilemna. My system has been
completely rebuilt with all new parts and power supplies. I went through the
same random shut downs, without any viruses or spyware issues. Need to know
if it has something to do with hardware or WINXP Home SP2 updates?
Help!

My pc is shutting itself off without warning...I have had my machine
completely
rebuilt 3x, everything replaced, and once again after a couple of months, it
begins to just shut off without warning. It is not specific to any program or
task. It will even shut off when no one is on it. All the power management
options are set to NEVER, yet it still just shuts off. I can turn it back on
without any problem, but no record is stored in the event viewer as to the
problem. I have no clue as to whether the problem is WINXP software or
hardware. Please advise...

I'm having the same shut down problem. So I decided it was time for a
bigger hard drive, and that would give me a clean install. I did use the
file and settings transfer in XP, and guess what...same shut down problems.
I'm hesitant to start over again, and reinstall everything because I'm not
sure if that will solve it. I can't find any common denominator to this
problem. It happens when the computer is sitting idle with no programs
open, or in the middle of a download, or virus check. Totally random. Any
other thoughts?
Bill
