Trying to reload XP SP3 on computer (from CD boot). The computer will almost get to the Accept License screen and the machine will power off. The same will happen with a bootable USB flash drive. This computer has been off for several months (prior to this OS reload attempt). I have tried using a new memory stick, with the same results. I have kept the machine running in CMOS monitoring the voltage for 20 minutes (I powered off after the 20 minutes). I'm looking for ideas on a solution. CMOS battery, Power supply, mother board or other? Thanks in advance.
