my pc is a dual boot
Win 98 se
and Win XP pro with sp2
a day back i've been experiencing this problem..
My pc while in XP shuts down unconditionally.. even while i'm workin' on it!
I think i know what my prob. is, but could it be???
I'd installed Bitcomet recently.. do u say could it be a conflict with that?
and i'll also ask this on their support forums.. Thanks guys!

If you've installed something that uses the cpu a lot and your coolers aren't clean of dust temperature will be a problem.

hmm k .. but could it be a program conflict .. oz its unconditional shutdown! just like that.. and no it aint blaster i checked that out!

Could it be with the Windows firewall..
or the bittorrent clients? i think it happens in Win 98 Se too...
and i've just formatted and installed afresh!

if it shuts down, rather than reboots or crashed to the desktop, then heat is the most likely possibility.

your system is shutting itself down to protect itself.

do any messages come up before it shuts down or does it just drop off?

I know this may sound stupid.. but to satiate (sp) my own curiousity, when was the last time you ran a virus scan?

ummmm..
Ok i'm reviving this topic again coz' i still have the same prob..
I'm runnin on WIN XP sp2
and this time the PC worked fine until I tried Bittorrent
I was reluctant to get bittorrent clients and when i got one and tried getting something and switched monitor off - 15 mins. later I come back and switch ON my monitor -- to see nothing appear and when i click the 'SHUTDOWN BUTTON IN CPU CASE' It just switches off instantly.. I mean if i press that button in normal conditions.. it takes about 45 seconds to shut down windows..
Pretty sure its got sumthin to do with bittorrent now! :tazz:

umm.. an' one more thing.. sorry for the double post!
This really sounds important and hence the second post :) :tazz:
I saw something on Win XP firewall that caught my eye..
Does Bit torrent use uPnP framework?
coz' in the windows xp firewall exceptions .. The uPnP framework check box is unchecked.. Should i Check it so it allows that??
Then will my problem be solved?

Now installed bitcomet and know what?
It just would start and the screen would go blank!
and when i press the 'Restart' button in CPU case.. after XP loads up .. it says 'System recovered from serious error'
