  1. HI, ive been having this problem for about 2 days and its frustrating me a lot and no answers have helped me. I recently bought parts for my new pc and ive gotten to installing xp pro. It gets to actually installing xp (the part when it says setup will take 39 minutes) but after a certain period of time, the computer shuts down without me touching anything. Here are my specs


    GA-MA790-DS4H 2.6GHz
    G-SKill 4GB RAM DDR2 1066 (2x2GB)
    Coolermaster 500W PSU
    gigabyte 9800GTX 1GB DDR3 VGA
    ThermalTake M9 Midi Tower Case
    22X Dual Layer DVD Writer/Reader
    Seagate 1TB SATA 7200RPM HDD

    I have al;ready removed 1 stick of RAM and the problem persists. Any solutions?
