Every time I turn on mycomputer it starts up and then turns off. Sometimes it stays on for 30 seconds, sometimes for 5 minutes. At first I thought it might have a virus, so I started doing a complete system restore. Now, I can't even geet all the way through that and it shuts down. The computer is older. It is a hp pavilion 563w. The only change I have ever made to it was adding an ethernet card. Thanks for the help.
Sorry, how do you check the temp reading? Just another thing I noticed, when it shuts down, something is still running. It is not the fans. I have the side panel off and can hear it, I just don't see anything moving.
