If you have time try to disable Automatic restart on Systemm Failure, you might be able to see if you get a BSOD (blue screen of death) and if you do write the error code it will help to find the cause of the shutdown.

You can turn it off by going either to:

1- Start/control panel/performance and maintenance/system, then the tab ``advanced`` choose Start Up and Recovery and uncheck Automatic Restart.

2- You can also disable Automatic Restart on System Failure from the F8 menu (where you have the option of Safe Mode)

If you have an XP cd (not an OEM cd)try a repair install.

It will reinstall windows without loosing your personal files and settings (do not forget that you will need your Product Key code)

Or you can try through the recovery console (with your XP cd) to do a chkdsk /r and see if it can find and fix any errors on your hd

Forgot to mentioned make sure your CD/DVD rom is the first boot device if you are using your XP cd

Using another CD of XP on your computer is not illegal.

It is not the use of the another cd that is prohibited but the use of the product key that came with it.

If you use your product key with another Computer then it will be illegal if an OEM (made for Dell, HP ect and made to fit your particular hardware) if retail then as long as it as not been activated you can use the product key.

Just borrow the same XP version as yours (Pro or Home) and you will not break any law.

Then I guess you're up the proverbial creek ... without a paddle. :)

Corrupted Operating Systems files need to be replaced with the original, uncorrupted files.

I suppose one could hire a team of Microsoft Programmers to come to your house and attempt to fix the corrupted programs. I'm sure it would be far cheaper though to simply borrow or even buy a CD. :)

Hello shoyou...

Tap the F8 key as the machine boots to access the Advanced Boot Options screen. On that screen you should see an option to "Disable Automatic Restart" or something similar. Use the arrow keys to select that option and press Enter.

This should present you with a BSOD when the machine tries to start. Post any error codes on the blue screen. If there are any file names mentioned, post those, too.

The computer will never work as it should until the failing hardware and/or corrupted operating system files are replaced.
