to get into bios it will most likely either be hitting f2 or delete when you are booting up....look on the bottom of the "hp" screen when you are booting up....it should tell you what to hit for booting options....you need to hit that button as soon as you see it.

no.... the problem persists sometimes when i leave the pc on for awhile idle... but if im using it for a few minutes and open a video or song it usually shuts down pretty quickly after

i can usually get to like 1:30 in a vid before it goes POOF

i checked my temps and they are gradually going up and up

It may be an overheating problem, but doesn't it sound rediculous if winamp can overheat ones computer? It doesn't use enough memory to cause such heat.

If it is not overheating it is most likely your powersupply is going. The best way to find out is to use a multimeter and test the Voltage on one of your power connectors in your case. If your powersupply is not poviding enough power to your system this could result in your PC rebooting for no reason.
