W2K shuts down automatically
Posted on 2003-11-16
Have Celeron 850, Matsonic 7177 MB, 512 MB Ram, installed Creative SB, DV Raptor graphical card; w2k, SP4 - untill 4 weeks there were no problems with configuration, still than suddenly machine started to shut down after certain period of time (5 - 30 minutes), normally it was running web radio. Have checked with Norton for viruses as well as put blaster removing tool - w/out any success. I gave machine on service where they cleaned it and checked for 7 hours (and was OK). Bcs I thought it is verheating, I have added additional vent. Still the problem continued - I have bought UPS and it seems tha problem is SW based as the failure continued again and again.
Since I have several applications running, I am hesitant to format disk and reinstall windows - I let this as ultimate step. Any ideas what to do? (I have checked the base and couldn't see anything similar). Thx for your help ...;o))))
