I recently came across a computer for free had a new hard drive installed and keyboard as well. To my point, I didnt have any start up discs with the comp i used a friends but the windows will only run for 15 mins then the comp shuts off. Could this be the software i need to original or is this a hardware problem?

Could be hardware as finehout suggests or a driver issue or heat...at this point I suspect the latter.

Download Speed Fan, install it, and monitor the temperatures. Post the low temps (at start up) and the high temps (after it has run close to 15 minutes or near a system shutdown) to this thread.
