I just bought myself some new hardware : msi mobo, sata HD, DDRram, and amd processor and a new case.
I assembled it, and it works from the first time. I also putted a cd-rom and diskette-drive in it from my previous computer.
So I started the windows xp setup. After a while, the pc suddenly shuts down. So I try again, and i got a little further, but after a while, again, shut down.
Eventually I succeeded in installing windows xp. But still, when I'm installing other software, the computer shuts down. I mean shutting down with no warning. Just like you pull out the power-connecter.
Then I tried this
* install all windows updates
* flash bios with the newest version.
* tried a differenct cd-rom drive
* moved ram to another slot
* moved sata disk to another slot.
* removed diskette drive
Still no success. But it occured to me that, every time there is needed for a reboot (for example after an update), the computer sais 'logging off', and suddenly, bam !, shut down instead of restarting.
It is also bizar that, when the computer shuts down, there is no power at all. I have to plug out the power-cable, wait 5 minutes, plug it in again, and finally the computer can start up again
Any idea ?
