Hello and God Bless,

I am having some problems with my Windows XP Media Center Edition 2004 computer. At times it just wants to shur down all of a sudden while I'm working or trying to do things. I have scanned for Malware/Spyware/Virus's etc... I have none. Does anyone happen to know what's going on?


Thanks,
-Nathaniel

Hello Nathaniel,

Is this a desktop or a laptop system? You may be having an overheating issue and should make sure that all the fans and vents are clear of dust. Blow them out with an air can to make sure everything is clean. If you have a desktop, pop the case and clear the dust in there as well, using appropriate anti-static precautions of course.

Regards,

Ax

Do you have a BSOD (Blue Screen Of Death) error? If so, then you should write it down when it happens and post the information here.

First, disable automatic restarting so you can copy the info shown on screen when the BSOD comes.

1.) Open My Computer.
2.) Right-click anywhere on the folder and select Properties.
3.) Select the Advanced tab.
4.) Select Startup And Recovery Settings.
5.) Uncheck 'Automatically Restart' in the System failure part.

Do not simply alter any info here as it'll damage your computer if meddled incorrectly.

When the BSOD appears, you should copy the code and what it says on the screen.


Also, if it is a hardware problem, it might be the PSU or fan. If it is a software problem, it'll be a corrupt driver.

Ok, so now it isn't a BSOD or dusty fan.

So, it might be a problem with the fan. Is it overheating? Try turning the CPU to face an open space, and let it run. Put your hand behind the fan (don't put it too close) and feel the heat. Is it very hot, hot or just warm?

Warm would mean it's normal to me. Please go into the Event Viewer and see if/what errors occurred at the time you get this error message.

Click Start-->Run and type eventvwr.msc and hit Enter.

Look under System AND Applications for items with RED X's that happened at the SAME time as your problem...List them here.

You say you've scanned for Spyware/Malware. What programs did you use? You should use at least 3 different programs to scan for spyware. AdAware, Spybot S&D, and A-squared are highly recommended.

I used Ad-Aware and SUPERAntiSpyware, and scanned for viruses using AVG.

OK, we might need to see some more information on those errors that you posted:
  • Double-click the error message to bring up the information.
  • Click the third button on the right side of the information window (copies information)
  • Paste the information here
  • Repeat for each error message
Thanks,

This is consistent with an event log that would occur if you have a BSOD.

Are you sure you disabled automatic restarting as Kelvin suggested here?
