This week, I have gotten four new things. I have XP, a Dell system, with a Vonage broadband adapter (VBA), speaker/subwoofer set, and wireless optical mouse and keyboard. The computer wasn't shutting off by itsself until I got the VBA. Of course, everything's hooked up to a surge protector. So my question is: why is my computer turning itsself off, and could I possibly need a new surge protector?
