CarbonX Thanks for the quick reply.

According to the chart, I need to procede to the Video Failure Chart.

Do you have this chart also?

Can you access your bios?

As in when you turn it on can you see the manufacturers logo and if by pressing F2 does a screen appear with a bunch of configuration options?

One of the reasons that a computer will shut down like this is the CPU overheating, shutting down the system protects it from damage. Have you taken a look inside the computer to see if there is build up of dust, especially in and around the heat sink and fan on the CPU?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
