  1. I'm asking this question for my nephew.
    He has and older Sony computer and is running Windows XP.
    The problem he has (and it happens quite often) is when he is on MSN the computer will shut down and restart all on its own. Weird eh?
    This only happens when he is on MSN.
    Any ideas?
    Thank You!!!

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    There are many possible causes for a computer to automatically restart.

    Go HERE and follow the instructions.

    If that doesn`t help, attach 5 or 6 of your latest minidumps into this thread.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    use of any instant messanging systems is a open invitation to viri. I highly discourage use of such programs. Check your system for viri and trojans.
