I've been having a problem with my computer and I'm just wondering if anybody has any idea of what could be causing it. I have an HP Media Center desktop that has had it's share of hardware problems. I just replaced the video card this month. Now I'm having a problem with the computer losing power at random during the day. It's like the tower just shuts off and then reboots like nothing happened. I had this problem before with the computer in a different room where the wiring was bad, so I bought an APC surge protector and battery back up thing. I have the computer plugged into the batter backup and yet it still loses power.
Short of trying to plug it into a different socket, I'm not sure what to do since I'm not all that experienced in diagnosing hardware problems. If anyone has any ideas, they'd be helpful! Thanks!
