I got this re-manufactured Dell for my daughter for general computer use. The problem is that it shuts off without warning. You can be on it for 3 straight hours and nothing happen, then later you may be on it for 15 minutes and all of a sudden it shuts down. The on/off button flashes a yellow light at about every 3 seconds until you hold it in until it goes out, for like 25 seconds when it fully shuts down. Restart is normal.

Intel® Pentium® 4CPU 2.80GHz 2.79 GHz, o.99 GB of RAM XP Pro 2002 SP3

Shuts down...does it power off...or does Windows begin shutdown procedures?
