The last few days my computer has been shutting down randomly, sometimes within a few minutes of turning it on, sometimes after several hours of use. My computer is only about a month old, the system is as follows:
DualCore AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+
Asus A8N32-SLI Deluxe Motherboard
OCZ 1GB PC3200 Gold Edition 2-2-2-5 Dual Channel DDR
OCZ 520W PowerStream SLI Ready Power Supply
Seagate 160MB Barracude 7200.8 Serial ATA Hard Drive
nVidia GeFroce 7800 GT (x1)
Windows XP Home Edition
I have performed scans with Windows Defender, Spybot, Adaware, www.spywareguide.com
, housecall.trendmicro.com and www.bitdefender.com
. No viruses and no spyware can be found.
I checked my BIOS, my CPU is running at a temperature of 48 degrees C (118 degrees F) and my MB is running at a temperature of 36 degrees C (96.5 degrees F) so I am pretty sure this isn't a temperature problem.
I just got Everest Home Edition and ran a Report and everything looks good, you can check the report at:
I cleared my Event Viewer. Since I have had three shut downs and the Event View shows nothing under Applications or System.
Windows XP management is set to only turn off the monitor after 5 hours.
I have removed the option to automatically restart in Startup and Recovery but the problem is still happening and I still get no error messages.
