Since I got so much help with my first question, I figured I'd throw another out there.

I am running Windows 2000 on this comp, and normally it's fine but lately its been shutting down for no apparent reason, I was playing a pretty old game online and I can't even get a full game in without it shutting down, meanwhile if I were to play oh say, Sid Meier's Pirates! (which pushes this machine to it's limits, sadly) it won't shut down once. Then I tested it out on a flash game and the same thing happened. Anyone know what the problem is? I figured it might be the power supply but that doesn't seem right, seeing as I'm just now having the problem. And now I also remember it did it during a certain program when it was 68% loading EVERY TIME. Again, any help would be appreciated.

Sounds very odd. As always, are you running the latest drivers? The only other thing i can think of is to run a scandisk check. Could be some invalid sectors. Might also be overheating of something.

You just dug up a post of 2005.
I suppose the User isn't around anymore :)
Take a look at the date before posting to a thread.
