Having problems with your HP PC Desktops ?

Computer ''shuts down'' usually only when online.

\015 Problem seems to have started after installing I-Tunes. Only happens when online-especially when using ''Grace Notes''. It also shuts down when using Lime Wire. It can shut down when viewing email, but mostly when working with music. It doesn't ''crash'', it just shuts off.\015\012It spent 3 weeks in the shop where a power supply was replaced but it still shuts down, just not as much as before. It may be strictly coincidental that it started after installing I-Tunes, but reformatting the hard drive and NOT reinstalling I-Tunes did not clear up the problem.\015

Answers :

If you re-formatted, it's probably just a coincidence about I tunes.
I would suspect an overheating problem. Open the side cover and check all the fans for dust, especially yhe CPU fan. You can blow the dust out with a can of compressed air. Try re-seating the RAM while you have the cover off. Good luck!
