valavan October 28, 2010 at 17:36:27 Specs: Windows Vista Home Premium, 2.33 quad core and 8gb ram
My computer used to shut off every 3mins after i started it a few times every 2 months for like 2 days and then its back to normal. Now my computer keeps shutting off and when i tried go to recovery mode and reinstall windows it keep shutting down every 3 mins of start.
could be a number of things 1- bad HD (Tap f8 and try to get into safe maode and salvage everything that you can before it totally dies) 2- bad ram (run a memtest and see what it finds) 3- Failing Power Supply. (you may need to swap it out and try another) 4- you may also want to physically remove all the PCI cards except the video one and see if it runs ok.
