Computers power cuts out when I run Norton Anti-virus or other virus scanning software.
Computers Power cuts out when I run Vegas and when I try to Capture video or other fairly complexes computing or when I transfer large batches of files from hard drive to hard drive. (it lets me play online poker fine)
After the power cuts out once - it usually has a hard time rebooting windows – sometimes it will go directly to the set up screen before windows loads and when I go to exit that It will go to a black screen and nothing will happen. or windows will load up but the power will cut out almost automatically.
Usually I have to leave the computer for 10-20 minutes and then it will boot up fine after that. (maybe an overheating problem ?)
sometime when the power cuts out the screen just goes black, but I can still hear the computers fan and the power seems fine.
I thought it might be my power supply - I bought a new one but the same thing is happening.
My computer will not load up in safe mode. I have run "clean up" and have managed to erase my temp internet files, but other virus detection programs cause the power to cut out.
Can anyone give me diagnosis from this information?
