Okay here is the problem: My computer is shutting itself off for no apparent reason. I have a Helwitt Packard and am using XP. When I turn on the computer, it starts up and lets me do a few things like check email or get online. But after about 30 seconds into something, it shuts off. It still has power because the orange light is on (green light on button showing comp is on, orange light underneath is the one lit). I dont know what this light is for, usually flickers on and off while I am on the computer, much like the lights on the cable modems. Anyways, this happens usually twice, maybee three times until it stays on permanently. I cannot bring the computer out of this "hibernation" or stand by whatever it is. I have to hold the power switch to turn it off. I have a UPS installed and I have all the power settings set to not turn off, etc. Also, both fans are working up to the point when it shuts off. The only thing I can think of is it may be some virus. When I run AdAware, I keep getting the same 2 Bargain Buddy objects, but this problem has been occuring for 3 weeks to a month. So if anyone has any help, I would really appreciate it. I have 3 online classes that I take and this is affecting them. It has already messed up my homework for one class. I had to type up the 4 paragraphs of the assignment I was working on again. So thanks again for any help. Later!
