Well I formatted my friends computer and am reinstalling XP. He got a really nasty virus. Anyway. When I got to run windows setup I'll be going from anywhere between 3 and 10 minutes and the computer will just shut it's self off. I could really use some suggestions on how to fix this. Right now his laptop is pretty much just a large paper weight. I really wasn't sure where to put this so it's in both hardware and software. Thanks.
