Computer Shuts Down When Not in Use Without Warning
Posted on 2005-04-09
I use Windows 2000 Professional and cable internet connection. In the past week and a half, my computer will make a funny noise and then shut down without warning--no blue screen or "Windows Is Shutting Down"--it just shuts off completely. I checked to see if it was overheated by going to the Bios immediately after restarting and the temperature is always around 63 Degrees. I keep the CPU cleaned and even did it again just in case. I've run 2 different anti-virus programs, SpyBot and Ad-Aware and came up with nothing. I also made sure I didn't have an automatic shut down when not in use feature checked. This only happens when the computer is left alone for about 10 minutes, not when someone is using it. I'm very frustrated with this because it has never happened before. The computer is only a year and half old. Any suggestions?
