My computer turns off without warning
by emt3920 - 7/23/08 1:22 AM
I am using windows 2000, I have an msi MB, AMD sempron processor. 512 Megs of RAM , Comodo firewall Fixit utilities for virus protection.
My computer turns off like some others have complained but when mine turns off it does not turn all the way off. The monitor goes black and the mouse pointer gets bigger. Keyboard and mouse will not function. System and fans are still running just no resonse from HID. I have to hold the power button until it shuts off and then reboot. I don't think it is an over heating problem since it sometimes does this just a few minutes after I boot it up. I checked my MB in the bios and it shows temps well within safe range even after running for several hours. Once I reboot it does not usually happen again during that session. It only did it again maybe twice. I opened case and checked fans and cleaned out dust anyway but to no avail. Does anyone have any idea what may be going on? Any suggestions greatly appreciated Thank You!
