Hi and welcome…

Sounds to me like the system is overheating. You need to check and make sure that the power supply fan is working properly and that air is flowing out of it. You also need to check and see if all of the other system fans are working properly & are clear of obstructions.

I’m not sure if your BIOS shows you the system temperatures or not, but most likely it will. Leave your system off for a short period of time, turn it on, enter BIOS setup and locate the system information in the BIOS where it shows you the temperatures of your system and fan speeds. Leave the system on for a LONGER period of time and see if the temperatures go up high and the system shuts down.

Also, if you boot into the operating system, check to see what processes are running and what your CPU usage is. To take a look at this do the following….

Hold the CTRL key
Hold the ALT key
Press the DEL key one time
Click on TASK MANAGER (if you using XP PRO)
Click on the PERFORMANCE tab
Check the CPU usage history

Thanks!

Shane
