I need some serious computer help here. If you can help, great. If not, refer me to a place where I can get some help!
Here's what happens. The computer randomly turns off. It's like someone just pulls the plug. I said it happens randomly, but it tends to follow a pattern. Sometimes. For example, it tends to happen when I use IE
, and especially when I try to scroll. But it also happens when I start flight simulator. I don't know what to make of this problem!
I have tried a lot of things to fix it.
First of all, here are my comp specs:
Soyo P4VDA (PVDA) motherboard 400mhz fsb
Intel 2.4 ghz processor
512mb PC2100 ram
2 hard drive
300watt power supply
I tried flashing the bios. no help
I replaced the hard drive. no help
I scrubbed the new hard drive, started from scratch with WINXP. no help
It isnt the Blaster worm. I started from scratch and it still turned off.
It turns off randomly under all operating sytems. 98, 2000, XP
It sometimes turns off before it even gets past the initial memory testing when you start it up. But once it has successfully loaded windows once, it doesnt normally do that anymore.
So I am wondering what the problem is? this is so frustrating!
Thanks to everyone who can help!
