Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Whenever my computer starts up and shows the Windows XP logo it shuts down and shows me while starting up that windows wasn't started up rite. Than after a week it COMPLETELY messes up. I've tried a FULL format AND I installed a fresh copy of Windows XP, from a CD that I bought(Brand new at a store). And still nothing, it just keeps coming back. I even tried staying off the internet AND not putting ANYTHING into for 2 weeks and it still does this.

\015\0121. It is overheating. Overheating will cause the computer to randomly shut down. You can usually decifer if it is overheating by trying to put the computer back on after it shuts down. For example , start it up...let it shut down...then try to put it back on again...if it doesn't come on at all, or if it shuts down even quicker then the previous time, you are most likely looking at an overheating issue. To remedy that you want to open up the case, clean out all of the dust with a compressed air can (be very careful not to tip the can, it will spray liquid), and verify that all of the system fans are running.

\015\0122. Could be any type of hardware failure - from the power supply to the hard drive. If you have completly ruled out the overheating issue, I would just take it to a shop to get diagnosed.
