|My computer is about 5-6 years old and just recently it started to just completely shut off or from what it seems, goes into hibernation mode. I have checked my settings and I do not have the hibernation feature on (windows xp by the way) and the power button blinks when it does this. So I have obviously ruled out the power supply. I do have anti-virus, but obviously I know nothing is full proof. I have cleaned it out with an air can thinking maybe that might be it, but it still continues. Whether I try to just browse the internet or burn a cd/dvd. I have a program to monitor the temp thinking it might be a heat issue, but from what post's I've read it doesn't really go necessarily high.. meaning I haven't seen the temp go past 48 degrees Celsius on anything. The temps rang from 40-47C mostly. The longest it lasts is while I'm doing my work, and I don't press the computer to do much at all, I await email for work and while it sits there and I do nothing, it will stay on. Any advise you can give me would be great.|
Here are some specs I can give you.
