Specs: Windows XP, -
I get this message when i startup the computer:

A: Drive Error
Press F1 to resume

I don't have A drive.
I only have 3 partitions, C, D, W

Few minutes after i using the computer, it will auto shutdown :(

What's wrong with it?

The drive error is a result of the bios being configured to think it has an a: drive and when it checks it doesn't see it hence the error.

you can just ignore it or configure the bios to not include an a: drive.

The autoshutdown from my experience is hardware related [overheating/fans/powersupply/mainboard fault] usually though software/malware/virus corruption can also give this symptom.

Does this happen if you come up in safe mode [f8 during boot]

Then I would say to go into BIOS and disable the
so called A: drive.
