Windows XP Crashing (Trouble rebooting)
I've been running on this install of XP for a little over a year. No hardware changes, etc.
My PC has now started to shut itself down. There is no rhyme or reason to it, no "blue screen of death", etc. Once the PC shuts down, if I try and boot it back up, it will boot for about 2 seconds, and shut down again. It doesn't boot far enough to POST or anything that I can see.
If I leave it sit for about 10 minutes, it will boot back up just fine. It's also started locking up while I'm playing games etc.
I normally would think it would be a heat issue. All the fans are working properly, I actually LEAVE the side of the case off. There's plenty of airflow, and the tower actually sits beside the A/C vent.
Any suggestions at all? I don't see anything critical show up in the Event Viewer besides a standard "Service Control Manager" stating the log was stopped.
