Computer help. works fine till desktop, then shuts off
I got this problem last night, when i took my tower to my girls house. She didnt have a surge protector, jsut a powerstrip so i plugged it into that.
Worked fine until like 20 minutes into a movie it just shut off.. like an instant "gone"
I was like wtf, so i try to turn it back on, and it wont turn on unless i flip the switch in the back of the power supply to "off" and then back to "on" Also It shuts off in the same spot every time after i put in my password and it shows the desktop for a coupa seconds and it just dies..
It started in safe mode once (i havent found how to make it start in safe mode again...)
I had this issue on a different system previously (would shut off whenever i turned on WM9, and the problem turned out to be the motherboard) So im lost and confused..
Heres the system in case anyone can help
Athlon XP 2800Barton
Asus A7N8X-E Deluxe
Radeon 9600 AIW
2x 256mb Geil ram
1 512 corsair ram
80gb WD harddrive (system drive)
250gb removable maxtor
Skyhawk power one PSU
thats about it...
Oh yeah, for some weird reason this system will NOt recognise blank CD's.. it will play and read normat/burned cd's just fine.. but it wont read blank ones..
Oh yeah, the last thing i did before taking it out of my house was install PowerISO, if it makes any difference
