  1. Windows XP
    Athlon 64 processor
    1gig ram
    200GB harddrive
    128 GeForce 6600
    Current Core Temperature - 46C

    Computer just instantly shuts off at a random time.. it turns on normally.. stays on.. if its any revolation, the 2 times it crashed i had a lot of stuff open.. but i mean seriously for what im running that cant possibly crash it..

    Anyone had this happen.. how did you fix it. Virus, i dont think so.. AntiVir and McAfee both updated, SpyBot and Adaware also being used..

    Edit- If i can read correctly.. im using a 500WT power supply..

    Thank you for your help,
    Jasio

    it just shuts off? doesn't freeze?


    sounds like your processor is getting too hot.. is the fan spinning on it? r u overclocking?

    Well, im not overclocking, fans spinning. It was fine for about 2 hours or so until just now it happened again, i was running 2 MSN, AIM, AntiVir, McAfee, Diablo II, Diablo II Item Editor, and maybe FireFox

    This has also never been a problem.. I've had Yahoo, AIM, 2MSN, Morpheus (music dload program), Windows Media Player, Diablo II, D2 Editor, multiple FireFox, and probably even more.. this started happening today
