I am a beginner and use a laptop with windows xp. My son has been working on making movies, and the downloading from the camera had gone well- but now after about of minute of transfer, the computer shuts down. It does the same thing when it is rendering as well. I don't know what to do-- thank you!

When you say shuts down, do you get the blue screen of death? The big error people make when trying to edit with a laptop is that they capture their video on the same drive that the application sits on---this leads to nothing but trouble, particularly in an older laptop. The key is to load your video on an external drive and attach that drive to your laptop using firewire.
