Pc turning off on its own randomly

March 7, 2009 at 05:01:42
Specs: Windows XP
For the last for days, and while i've changed nothing at my pc's composition i get some random turn offs, which tend to be really often if i try to use applications with video or games.

Checking the event viewer, i find that just before every turn off i got this error :
Event Type: Error
Event Source: Userenv
Event Category: None
Event ID: 1507
Date: 7/3/2009
Time: 2:36:03 μμ
User: ER3VOS\Odu
Computer: ER3VOS
This computer is in manual policy mode, but the policy file cannot be found. Windows is logging you on without applying any policy. Return value (The system cannot find the file specified. ).
Thanks in advance

Check for an overheating issue.

I formated and reistanled windows xp and now i get the turn offs without the userenv error.
Looking at the cpu temp after a shut down, i realised it was at 98 C degrees and so yes its an overheating problem now.
Thanks for the reply :)
