On the main page, click error scan, start scan
When windows loads now you will get the temperature in the taskbar so you can keep an eye on it

If you click OK for the settings and it does not show the temperature in the taskbar when windows loads, start the programme manually, no need to run an error check, you just want to be able to monitor the temperature in case a particular programme causes it to rise suddenly
Probably the two main reasons a computer shuts down are temperatures and video adapter errors, although the temperature would cause it to stay off and the video adapter would usually cause it to reboot
If you run through the next bit, it will help this or point to the problem
Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter, you will need the XP CD
System File Check will display an onscreen blue progress bar, when the bar goes, reboot.
Click start then run, type chkdsk /f /r then press enter, type Y to confirm for next boot, press enter then reboot.
Windows will appear to load normally then either the monitor will show progress or the screen will go blank, do not disturb this. This will take an hour or so before it gets to the desktop.
Click start, all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc clean up, click more options then clean up restore points, click confirm, click OK. Then from system tools, run disc defragmenter.
Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, right click any file then click delete, confirm delete, then reboot
When it gets to the desktop, the system files and the hard drive will be as they should and you can check for any improvement
This section is optional

I've read that capacitors will sometimes 'whistle' when they become defective. I'm wondering if a capacitor on the motherboard or inside the powersupply is defective......
