Ibm netvista shuts down on start up

\015 Elderly friend has a IBM net vista running windows 2000 pro. It worked\015\012great until a week ago. It began to power off and shut down just as\015\012windows going to load. I went into the set up and changed nothing, I\015\012turned it on and it worked great. She turned it off that same night,\015\012and the pc just turns off. Fan stops two seconds later it shuts off. I\015\012tried to boot from windows xp disk and when it says press any key to\015\012boot from disk, it won't recognize keystrokes and tries to load\015\012windows, it shuts down. When I go into set up I can't select anything,\015\012its like there is no keyboard plugged in. Please help! She's a\015\012grandmother with a grandchild starting school this week, and they are\015\012broke!\015

Answers :

1. if possible check and see how dusty the system is inside.. used compressed air cans to dust it off.. don't touch any components... watch esd so ground yourself while you're at it
\015\012then test
\015\0122. you're power supply may be dying: ground yourself to the same ground as the computer (watch for esd) and replace the powersupply.
\015\012then test.
\015\012the keyboard or controller may be damaged, check for resource conflicts in your bios related with keyboard (make sure no other items are using the same irq's.. check plugs, test with other key board.. replaced motherboard.
\015\012random shut down could also mean that the cpu is overheating.. make sure the cpu fan is undusted and working.
