    If you could change the font color of your post,it would increase you chances of getting a solution.Try black,for instance.What do you mean "shuts off" ? The screen goes blank or power shuts off ? Was it working before ? For how long ? It could be a power management issue,try this link http://www.energystar.gov/index.cfm?c=pm_enable.pr_pm_home_enable_2000 It applies to XP as well.Oh,welcome to techspot,despite your joke.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Please edit your post. The colour you have chosen makes your post very difficult to read. Thanks.

    Go to your control panel, and double click on power options.

    When the window opens, make sure the "Turn off monitor:" "Turn off hard disks:", and "System standby:" are all set to never. Click apply/ok

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
