Does it "click" (not the monitor) when it shuts down?

Download, install, and run SpeedFan. Monitor the temperatures for a bit and post back with the highest temperature you see before it restarts.

Do you have the Windows XP installation cd? If you do, I'd like you to run these next two operations one after the other.

Close all open windows. Click Start then Run...type sfc /scannow (Note the space between sfc and /) and press "Enter". You will be asked for your installation cd, so have it handy. Wait for the scan to finish (there will be a progress bar...this may take up to an hour).

Click Start then Run...type chkdsk /r (note the space) and press "Enter". In the Command Window, type Y and press "Enter" to run the check on the next start.. This will run on boot-up so restart will take a while...be patient.

Let me know how this goes...

Click Start, then Run, type regedit and click "Ok". In the left pane, expand (click +) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, then SOFTWARE, then Microsoft, then WBEM, and click on Scripting. In the right pane, what is the value listed for "Default Impersonation Level"?

I didn't know which option to choose off the list that comes up when starting the XP disc.

You don't need to start with the cd...the system file check is started from within Windows, as is the chkdsk operation (though the chkdsk will run on the next boot).

Start the sfc /scannow operation and insert the cd when asked for it.

The camera seems to be causing the most errors...all of the errors in the applications area are related to the camera in the logs I've got.

Let me know how it runs without that installed.
