|Hi, looking for help with my MESH 5000+ HOME PRO PC.|
I've had it from new, and it's now about 3 years old, but this is the first problem that I have had with it and it is driving me nuts.
A couple of weeks after I got the PC, I had an NVIDEA GeForce 9600 GT graphics card installed, but that is the only non-standard component. Everything else is as it was delivered when new.
Around 2 weeks ago, it started to shut down without warning during boot up as though the power plug had been pulled. This gradually got worse, to the point where it could take up to 9 attempts to get it to load to windows. Once Windows has loaded up and I start to use the PC, it can run anywhere from a few seconds, up to around an hour before it apparently loses power and shuts down again. I've run Kaspersky 2010 AV, uninstalled that, installed and run Avast Free AV, and neither of them are picking up anything. I have even reinstalled Vista using the MESH CD that came with the PC when the problem first started, but problem still continued. Everything is up to date..SP2 etc.
My brother-in-law replaced the original 300w power pack with a new 400w one, but this has not made any difference.
Absolutely any suggestions would be very much appreciated.
