i had bought a new pc in october 2004. itz a p-iv 2.4 ghz with 90 gb hard drives (80+10), 256 mb ddr ram , intel motherboard with onboard AGP, sound and lan card.
it worked fine until one month when it started shutting down by itself. and by that i dont mean a proper shutdown. itz as if u have pulled out the power plug. gone in a second. ahhh....it jus drives me crazy. i'm doing an online course and when the need the pc most, it doesnt work.
and then u have to wait for some time until it starts again. again u never know when would it shut down. sometimes it wud be less than 1 minute and sometimes 3-4 hours.
i called a computer repairer like last month. he put in a new fan (now i have 3 fans) to eliminate the cooling problem. he also changed the RAM. but still the problem persisted.
next he changed the power supply (the power box in the pc tower with all the wires). the computer worked all good for one month but now again it is back to itz old woes!!! can anyone help??
one thing to notice is first when i bought the pc with a new power box, no problem for 1 month and when the guy replaced old one with a new power box, the new one also lasted a month without any problems.
another thing which mite be important is that my computer usase in minimum 10 hours daily (yes that is 10!!!) and it extends upto anything like even 18-20/per day.
waiting for ur reply
take care yall
