No use, there is no event log. It goes down as if you had cut the power,
there is no shut down process. The reboot is normal without any problems

If you have looked thru the event log and there is nothing associated with
the time the machine shuts down, it sounds more like hardware to me. But, if
the problems started with SP2, you can uninstall it.
