Specs: Windows XP professional, Intel Pentium 4
When I start up my Dell Dimension 4600, it will shut down when I am at log in menu. I have tried to format it, but it won't read the cd/dvd from Dell at the F8 menu.

Have you changed the boot order in the BIOS?

A thank you would be nice, if I have helped.

What makes you so sure it's a virus? And why would you format rather than trying to fix whatever the problem is?

Seems to me to be hardware.

Try to boot to bios and see how long it stays up. See any health info if that bios has any to report. Temps and voltages may give clues.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.
